    I would like to subscribe to a quilting magazine and have noticed there are several out there. Which one do you think are the best? I have been quilting for a long time, but do very simple, basic patterns. I love to look at really good pictures to get me inspired. What do you recommend?

  6. Printing fabric

    by , 01-08-2014 at 03:42 AM
    I am new at printing out photos on fabric, I use EQ7 program. The pictures I printed will bleed when I put them in cold water. On EQ printing fabric, it says to use Fabric softener in the water. Has anyone had any luck using this one. Is there something else I should use so the ink does not bleed? I want to make an all photo quilt for my daughter.

    I just started to try stippling but the tread keeps breaking. I checked the tension, I spray basted and I don't know if the needle gets gummed up and breaks or if I am not using the right size needle. Please help figure out my problem.

I've found that while typewriters are fun to work on, sewing machines are much more of a challenge and quite possibly more addicting. I've added a dozen sewing machines to the shelves
  10. Retirement Update

    by , 01-06-2014 at 01:14 PM
    It's officially a year since my retirement. And I still do not like it!! I worked at a local store for about 6 months but found it cut into things I wanted to do with my family esp. on the week-ends. I guess I wanted the best of both worlds . I still have not been sewing much but like checking out this website and buying magazines and even more fabric. I have enough to last me for some time, like most quilters, if I ever decide to get busy. On freezing cold days like today (wind chill is -26 here ...
