We are having a wee snow storm right now-praying for those who are traveling today!
I live in a small town-about 600 people-but 45 minutes to a major city. Despite the small town, we have a fabulous quilt shop-they have about 7,000 bolts of quilting cotton-how lucky am I? I work there on a casual basis to help support my habit-okay I should be working there full time to support this habit of mine!
I am the Administrator of a small Rural Municipality in Northern Saskatchewan,
Just received a lovely package from Scotland that made my day. Been a rough week at work and this was just what I needed.
My sewing studio-sounds snooty but it's not-is getting a much needed makeover, so I am back to sewing on the dining room table. Only simple projects at this point-everything is mini-cutting board, iron, ironing board, and a lot of my gadgets are-well-who knows where-so just the basics. Should start to move back in-gradually-on Monday. Everything going back through
Does anyone know where you can obtain Jinny Beyer fabrics in the UK? Thanks
I've purchased the kit but would like to see a video for moral suport.
I have an opportunity to purchase one of these machines and I am interested to know if any of you have or had one? If so, did you like it? Over the last few years I have found this group's opinions and experiences much more valuable than a salespersons! I can't afford the LA and I am so very tired of pushing and pulling thru my regular home machine. I thought this mid size might be a good solution. thanks for all the advice and ideas from this group!
This quilt of floral and butterfly fabrics was made with the Wickedly Easy pattern available free online.
68" x 80"
Quilters cotton top and back/poly batting

Is there .. or does someone have .. or know of a site where I can obtain a printable copy of calculations for xx" squares = xx quilt = yardage for quilt and bedspread .... xx strips x wof = yardage for binding needed for quilt? I realize that this may be asking too much but have to try as I really need to have these handy.
