Need to organize an old jar of buttons?

July 27, 2010 in General, Tips & Tricks

I have a tin of buttons that belonged to my great-grandmother. I've wanted to use them, but was unsure of the size of each. I don't mind mixing, matching, and guessing, but I wanted to sort them by size, and didn't know what size to label each group. I found this chart for button sizing at www.karimeaway.com: http://www.karimeaway.com/files/buttonsizingchartexpanded.pdf I printed it at 100% ...

Spring Challenge

Favorite Fabric

October 7, 2009 in General

I love fabric. All kinds of fabric, I really am not all that picky. My bulging drawers of fabric will prove that. I have found that I am drawn to certain styles and patterns and what I am drawn to is vintage/retro looking prints and have collected yards and yards of vintage inspired cottony goodness.

The Sewing Place

September 29, 2009 in General

This is a really neat website that I ran across when I was given two really neat gifts. Both were rings with all different colors of 100% rayon seam binding, and the other Petersham ribbon. These are incredibly convenient when I need to match a color to hem up a skirt, or trim the lapel of a jacket. You can ...

Fabric Name Game

May 11, 2009 in General

When you create something how do you choose a name? Do you name it after yourself, you location, your materials, your inspiration? Do you ever think, "How did they pick that name"? Some fabrics are named for the cities they were created in. For example, Cashmere comes from Kashmir, a region in India. This region is home to the goats where ...

Tobacco quilts?

April 20, 2009 in General

In the late 1800's the tobacco industry recognized the marketing ability that it had and began inserting advertisements into the tobacco packs.  These advertisements, including cards, tin tags, silk, flannel, rug, ribbon, leather and even embroidered items, opened the door for new creative spirit as quilters began sewing them together. The textile inserts began in the early 1900's and were only available ...
