    HA! That is what we quilter's do best - share our best kept secrets! It's one of the main reasons I love this hobby!

    I need to go there. The one closest to me is stuck behind more stores and I had to Google the directions to even know how to find it. I never seem to be in that part of town and no reason to go there but I guess getting the blades will be a good reason.

    I checked out the blog, saw what all she bought at Harbor Freight. I saw the mini clamps at Big Lots today. Almost bought some to clamp down lining, batting and top to table to baste. Will have to go back now and get them. I thought they would be good for something, but passed them up...

    What are quilty gripping gloves? Are they those gloves that you wear when you are cutting fabric with your rotary cutter or is that something totally different?

    Quilting glove are used for FMQ. They are wonderful in helping you grip/hold the fabric as you move your fabric. My personal favorite is Machingers. They are lightweight and fit like a second skin and are not bulkly or hot.

    Here is a link for you to see what they do:

    I have the Harbor Freight blades too and find them just as good as the others. My question - if Harbor Freight can sell them so cheaply, why do the quilting blades cost so much? I wonder if the same manufacturing plants make them all and then put individual labels on them? Anyone?
