Sew in the Know!

This week I heard someone say , "It's hard to believe summer is half over", but I am thinking "Wow, there's still half the summer left!". I hope you are using all the rain to escape to your sewing room!

This week I have a video update for you. It's short and sweet and it just saved me typing a ton of blah blah blah........ You won't regret watching it because there's something in it for you! See it here.

The web site has some cool new additions to it including a new page called "Quilters Video Series" with short clips with tips or ideas or explanations.

Take a quick scan below of other info I have for you. I'll try t keep things short! (please forgive any typos)

Did you know laughter can raise your seratonin levels and help relieve pain?

DIY Face Mask Tutorial With Kay

Leaving a lasting impression....

A gift of a quilt is something not forgotten. And many of us make quilts for others as gifts for birthdays, graduations, weddings or just because. Do you put a label on the back of the quilts you create?

Recently, I went to a couple of estate sales where there were quilts made available. I searched on the rear of the quilt to see if the quilt maker had put a label including the year the quilt was made or who it was gifted to - or intended for. NOTHING!

How disappointing! I went home and immediatley made labels to put on the back of the few quilts I have here that are not for sale. Your quilt is a work of art! Be sure to sign it!

You can order a label for the back of your quilt when you send it t be quilted!

Labels: $15.00

Today's Tips

#1.Do a little show and tell! It's a great way to show off your creativity and you would be surprised how many people will tell you how wonderful your work really is! AND it's a great boost to your ego too!

#2. Stand back please..... when you are agonizing over that block that just won't fit in right - step back 3 feet. Seriously. Once your quilt is quilted - I bet you will never be able to see the error or mismatch!

Nicely done Louise!

This quilt to the left is a quilt I did the quilting on last year. It is a round quilt for a newborn. I had a blast quilting it - but Louise did an amazing job putting the quilt together.

What a cool quilt!

A Quilter's Sandwich - Blog post

I love to write - and so I do have a blog on the site. Here's a fun post from 2020!

A Quilter's Sandwich!

A sewing fanatic or "crazee" quilter has certain rules..... one being - DO NOT TOUCH MY SCISSORS! We cringe, gasp and lunge towards the offending party when we see them cutting electrical wire, paper, cardboard - or horror of horrors - opening the bacon wrapper! Hence, we have several pair scattered, hidden and sometimes even even hanging around our neck.

Yes. Until yesterday. Confusion. Frustration. Despair. Where oh where are you my sweet little snippers .. read more here
