A few months ago, a dear friend, gave me her fabric stash. She is over 70 and is in poor health and just felt that she could no longer do any quilting. I graciously (jumped up and down) accepted 3 18 gallon totes that were overflowing. The contents ranged from small scraps to 10 yards. I still have not gotten them all sorted, ironed and refolded. Washing will have to wait until I have a washing machine once again. LOL. She has not done any quilting for several years, but wanted to hold onto
I am looking for a used midarm quilter for my home and have not found a secondary market yet. Any pointers on where to go to find used machines. I live in Northern California about 30 miles outside of San Francisco.
Thanks. I love this site.
I am surfing online to find some free tutorials on zipper bags and will post the links here on this thread to make it easier to find in the future.
I found a perfect pattern for it just by accident. I think some of you may remember me mentioning a really good and well known quilter who lives her on the Island, Angelika Monks, originally from Germany.
On my first patchwork class she gave me a pattern that she had put together for newbies but I didn't get around to making it then but I have some really new NEWBIES at present

I never dreamed that it would use up so many scraps, but my scrap drawers are now empty and I am one happy camper! It's big 120" by 120" and heavy, which will be wonderful come winter time. It's pieced with a QAYG method. Thanks Postal

Hi Does anyone know where I can purchase Rings that Bind by Cherly Phillips without spending an arm and leg? I saw it for sale for $23.00 sent for it, they were sold out, looked on ebay they wanted the arm, looked at Barns and Noble and they wanted the arm and leg, it is no longer in print, so they tell me it will cost a fortune. I don't want to remorgage the house, I just want to purchase a book. Can anyone help me? If you have one around and would like to sell it, I would love to have it.
