Well today i had a wonderful surprise as i recieved a few packages in the mail from some ladies who have big hearts. I want to thank you all for your generosity and hopefully beable to return the favor some day. May God bless you all in every stitch you sew. With a grateful heart, I will use your gift wisely. One quilt on my wish list will be called a friendship quilt in memory of these kind ladies. Thanks again , you know who you are.
I am a new memeber to this blog. I noticed a discussion about taking sewing machines on a camping trip. I am going camping in a pop-up for 3 weeks. Would love to take my machine. Has anyone ever taken their machine in a pop-up? I noticed no one took it in a tent. My main concern is condensation. Of course when I am not using the machine, it will be in my pop-up. We are dry inside, but it is cool in the morning (Maine) and there is some general dampness. I am leaving this Friday Aug. 9, 2013. I
I'm new to this site so if you talked about this earlier; I'm sorry for the repeat. I recently purchased a Voyager and am confused about which cone thread I should purchase. Can anyone give me some advice and tell me about your experiences with cotton vs polyester. 2 ply 3 ply????
This is my sewing room for now. This area is 12'7x 7'6. I also have my computor desk in here as well. In time, i'm sure i will upgrade a few things but for now this has to do. The coffee pot is just around the corner. lol

When I took it out in September, it was for something to do while I sat minding the Quilts at the County Fair. I received so many compliments and remarks that they can't wait to see it finished next year. I don't know if I can get it done for that, but I have
During the month of July, i contemplated heavily on returning to the world of quilting after 23 yrs. Since my family is raised and most have moved out and on with their lives, I now have a room to where I can hopefully make my dreams come true. My own "lil girlie cave". yessss. ahhhh so onward i got out some paint and repainted the room to the colors i had on hand. Top half of room is white and the bottom half is dark cherry with a border that matches soo perfectly. i forgot i had
We kept our 5yr old G-son for a week so he could attend Vacation Bible School--and to give his folks a break before new baby next month. My DH and I are so beat--we can't get out of our recliners! My most recent knee repair in June did not hold up to attempts to play soccer--or the zoo, riding horses, etc. He and I did a tie fleece blankie for him to take to a baby shower as his present. He still uses his "blankie" that I made him--drags it everywhere. Plus he thought that we should
went out to my dye cottage first thing this morning, to find the perfect place for each thing, my dye books are on shelves under the dormer windows, paints all in one cupboard, dyes in another, iron hot blow dryer in a cupboard. one gal size buckets on top shelf under counter, and the 5 gal size on bottom shelf under counter. I have 2 plastic drawers, one for PFD fabric and one for odds and ends. Table in front of front windows with 2 chairs. It is the perfect size for me to do all my fabric painting

My problem is, I have the Husqvarna Viking designer software, and it won't work on my relatively new computer. It's version 3 and they are out with V5. I don't embroider enough to justify the cost of upgrading to 5D ($2300). Does anyone know of a program that is less expensive but will let me manipulate my
