I am new to quilting and am taking quite a few classes at the local quilt shop. I have a rolling bag for my machine, but it does not hold all of the various supplies.
I'm finding carrying a sewing box too bulky and having to make multiple trips to the car. Any suggestions for better class organization?
I'm not sure where to put this but I thought todays information was very good, concise and considering all the different types of sewing areas. I often want to say "way to go" to whoever does these daily articles but don't see how.
Anyway, I think this is a great board
I started this quilte using Virginia Bonesteel' lap quilting technique. Actually this is not spelled correctly. I broke my wrist over a year ago and I don't think I will be able to finish handquilting it. Would it be worth anything if I did it on the machine. It really is a beautiful quilt. Every square is a different design although all designs are from those long ago, ex. windows, etc. Susan
On the main board, I started a thread about needles and thimbles. I wanted to ask advice about what other quilters are using. I received a wonderful array of informative posts.
I had been having a problem with large eye needles. The consensus does not seem to favor them. So, in my quest to secure some good needles, I ordered some #10 Clover quilting needles.

Well, snow every day since Wednesday! Not too much today, just a heavy dusting, but dear hubby did do some scraping with his ATV and plow blade (maybe just because he likes to do that?).
I finished two small quilts this weekend. One is 17" square and will go to my March DQ Swap partner, so I can't show it to you, but I can show the AAQI little quilt I made!
I started taking quilting lessons 14 yrs. ago, but never continued because I became pregnant at 40 and had to stay in bed my whole pregnancy. Instead of learning to quilt my dads wife taught me to crochet. Love to crochet, cross stitch, sew etc. Both my daughters are married now, but still have a 14 yr. old son at home at the young age of 55. Will be married 27 yrs in April and this month I'm an 8 yr. breast cancer survivor. Now I'd like to continue my dream of hand quilting. It's difficult
