Queen-sized wedding quilt

Here is the top for a wedding quilt I've made for a friend. I've seen patterns like it, but they all have different names for this layout. The closest one that makes sense to me is from a block...

I used my regular sewing foot. I use a Singer 500 from the early 1960s. The bag was easy to sew through, except for a short section where you sew over both layers of the bag and the lining and the...

Really basic cross stitch question.

I'm getting ready to start my first cross stitch project but there's one thing I don't understand and it's so basic that books and blogs don't mention it. I understand that you put a strand through...

Back for what I hope is the last update. The packing tape didn't hold. I'm sure duct tape would be sticky enough to hold but it would add too much bulk to get through. I found that the hood was only...

Treadle irons, cabinet, and machine from different sources, now one.

I finally have a treadle sewing machine. It's been a long journey, because the parts are from three different sources. The treadle irons were from a machine from 1914 or so (a Singer 127, I think). I...
