Does this mean I should get someone to trim my board for me? Should I let them use my band saw or should they bring their own?

I understand I am a minority here... but if I can learn to use a sewing machine, you all can learn to use a band or a jigsaw.

Step up quilters... take control.

Minda, thanks for sharing that web site! I have seen Judy Martin's sewing room in person... it is FABULOUS!!! :!: :!: :shock: :!:

Unfortunately, Judy passed away last year, so the room is not now being used. Most of the cabinets, and the ironing board were designed and built by Judy and her husband.

Judy was an amazingly talented and organized woman. She will be greatly missed. :cry:

I like Judy's work, and had no idea that she had passed away. Here is a link to her site for anyone wondering what her patterns are like.

WAIT!!!! I just checked out the rest of her site, and this is NOT the same Judy Martin I knew!! The sewing rooms are AMAZINGLY similar, and the names are exactly the same. :oops: :oops:

Sorry for any distress I may have caused!!!

Hello , Cnolan--- I don't believe that Judy Martin of Grinnell, Iowa has passed away. Her latest newsletter is dated Febraury, 2008. Please double check her website. The web address is listed elsewhere on this thread.


Tim, not all of us have that type of power tool with which to trim the edges. However, that doesn't phase me a bit. I have more than enough projects to keep me busy. Notice, I did not say out of trouble :-) Trouble is the operative word here and I love your teasing. Please don't stop inter-acting with us!!!!!

When I was teaching, guys were more attentive than gals and the guys were more apt to figue out a solution. This 1946 edition was raised by a mother who taught me that I can do anything I choose to set my mind to do.

Today I gave away some felted sweaters to a woman who makes really neat winter mittens. Anything that takes time and energy away from quilting is being carefully examined and various WIP are finding new homes. Fortunately, I love my job so earning a living is enjoyable!!!!!

No worries, ksusan! I should have known that there are probably lots more than one Judy Martin.... sorry to have worried you.
