I've done it in the past and made friends along the way. I don't have issues with motion sickness and didn't really notice noise other than low level conversation.

When I use a thimble, I place it on the end of the needle, but the thread is coming out the side of the eye so is not between the needle and thimble. I learned a neat trick in Sharon Schamber's...

I bought the a binding ruler when I first started gathering supplies. I have yet to use it. I am happy using my 24 inch ruler to cut the appropriate widths.

Oh no. How sad for the quilters. I hope the woman who fell was not badly hurt.
