    Hi all!!!

    I'm hoping you can help me out!

    A good friend of mine started sewing with us in our Thursday night sewing group lately. She completed her first quilting project tonight. She made a beautiful crazy patch cushion.

    She is now hooked on quilting and is anxious to get started. For now she has been using my little 1945 Singer Feather weight to sew on, but she plans to purchase a machine of her own in the next couple of weeks.

    Now she is trying to figure out what she needs!!! Can you help me out with creating a wish list for her? She can get some basics and then the rest of the list she can give to her fiancee for some Christmas gift and stocking stuffer ideas.

    Please help me create a list for her!

    Cheers
    Andrea

    Does she have a cutting mat yet? If not make sure her wish list is for a bigger one than mine. It's only 17 x 14 and that can be a pain.
