    I wonder if I can use the felt squares that you can get at JoAnn's? They are made of cotton? but seem to have the properties of wool felt. I also think there are books on the subject. Think I will check the library.
    I found a pattern for a pincushion and a matching needle book. Depending how it turns out, I wonder if my santee would like one. hmmmmmm
    Hi Sunrise450- since you are local to me, I can answer this. The Quilted Cottage on Main St. in St Charles has a wool room, and if you PM me your contact info, I can put you in contact with Cindy in our guild (flower valley) who is our resident wool expert!

    Sorry, SulaBug, but this bag is flying far, far away.

    Now I have to pick out some fat quarters. I cleaned and reorganized my sewing room yesterday. Now it looks more like a quilting room and less like a storage room. I have hundreds and hundreds of fat quarters, but I just can't decide. My MIL passed away in January 2014, and her entire sewing room has been stored in mine. I just started going through her stuff. It seems that she liked Christmas fabric as much as I do. I'll bet I now have 50 - 75 fat quarters and 30 yards of yardage of all Christmas. I'm gonna have to make a lot of stockings. I will probably make a stocking for my Santee.

    I love anything embroidered and wish I had an embroidery machine. Maybe one day I can afford one.

    Thanks for the newsletter, I will check into it. I lived in Nebraska for about 7 years., Chadron for 6 years and Gering for almost a year. I got my Home Economics degree at CSC.

Her patterns are reasonably priced too. When my girls were little I made clothes for their Barbies too. I was really glad when they outgrew those Barbies. Those clothes were so painful to sew!

    Do you like/want/need quilting rulers? (shapes/sizes) Would love to have the Curve-It ruler

    This should read the Quick Curve Ruler. Just got a newsletter from Massdrop listing it for 35.00. Went to Craftsy where I thought they had it for 15.00. I was right. Craftsy has it for 15.00. Pays to shop. But what a difference in price. Maybe I miss read the Massdrop newsletter. Whoops, that 35.00 includes the choice of 3 patterns. That sweetens the pot. LOL
