  4. I'm a beginner and need help

    by , 06-01-2013 at 07:19 PM
    I always wanted to learn to quilt, so finally did it, but there are so many things I don't understand. I have finished my first quilt but need to quilt the top. What web site is the best for trying to learn? I have no quilting stores in my area to take classes, so I have had to learn everything on-line.

  5. Sewing Supplies

    by , 06-01-2013 at 06:12 PM
    Looking for a good web site to order sewing supplies. I recently went on sewforless.com and they have a great deal on 505 spray adhesive is less than half the price of my local quilt store. Also noticed their Isacord Embroidery Thread is $2 less a spool. Wow a big savings since half of everything I earn goes towards this crazy hobby. Does anybody have any codes to use for this website? Any other ideas for cost saving supplies?

  9. Sewing at night

    by , 05-30-2013 at 03:08 AM
    I find myself doing a lot of late night sewing, I am not sure if it is good for me or not but I seem to get so much done and when I get into the grove of a project it amazes me that I can actually sew for hours and not even know it is really the next morning and I started late in the afternoon the day before.

    The really scary part is when I pick up the phone to call my daughter and then realize it is 3:00 am, good thing I looked at the clock first!

    Does anyone else do this? ...

    The morning went by and I put some hexagons together. My mother learned me quick how to sew by hand.
