  1. Need ideas for a bundle of 12 fat qt given for my retirement

    by , 06-01-2013 at 09:26 PM
    A quilting friend gave me a bundle of 12 fat qt that are from the Sis Boom Happy Land by Free Spirit as a retirement gift. They are all bright and 7 are medium and large florals and the other 5 are stripes---2 kinds, one a repeating rows of about 2" wide stripes with tiny florals in the stripe and the other are about 2"wide stripes with large florals in either side. Any ideas?

  2. 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.
  3. Sewing Supplies

    Looking for a good web site to order sewing supplies. I recently went on 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?

  7. 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? ...

    Two weeks ago my mother an I went to a workshop to make a hexagon flower ring. We went to the workshop with the idea it was on de sewing machine. I was shocked. I have never did any hand sewing. But we went anyway.

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

  10. Help with making a whole in my sewing table for my machine!!!!

    If you have a top-loader, it's enough to cut the hole to fit the machine.
