    Hi, I am Janice Dinse from Gastonia, NC. Thank you for allowing me join you group. I have about 6 treadle machines. They are so special.

  5. Back Again!

    by , 02-16-2015 at 07:30 AM (Applique in Blogosphere)
    I have been co-managing the quilt museum (NEQM) store which has kept me very busy. We now have tons of consignment quilts for sale and I have sold ALL my appliqued quilts and even pieces mounted on canvas! Totally out. The applique goes first because everyone thinks it is so difficult. For me at least, the piecing is very difficult and frustrating so I tend to also procrastinate.
