Yes, washable school glue -- I like the clear glue if I can find it. I sometimes dilute it up to 50% (for all cotton) but I don't dilute it that much when I'm trying to baste non cotton fabrics. ...

I have used all kinds of things for quilt backs, including poly and microfiber. I am also a fan of glue basting! Here's what I do in these cases when the top is cotton and the back is not. I lay...

No central air here either; we have no need for it. Our house is about 63-67 during the day and around 55-60 at night. My sewing room is on the lower level and stays around 55-57, so I have a space...

Why don't we ever see these? I would probably buy one of these original repair "jacks" if I could find one. They are as interesting to me as the old machines! Has anyone EVER come across any of...

It is definitely time consuming, but so worth it to have precut fabric when you need to make something fast. I use mostly 5" squares, 2.5" strips, and 2" squares. So I cut scraps according to what...

I love my Shape Cut -- it really helps get things "squared up." I notice that when I use it a lot (with my 45mm rotary cutter) I do have to change the blade more frequently. Also, it really helps...

Question "Permanent" Paper Foundation Blocks?

What happens if you complete a bed quilt, bind and wash without removing the paper foundation? Is it a total disaster?

I do not use paper foundations (I use muslin because I'm too lazy to rip all...
