Jelly Roll Quilt Book

August 23, 2010 in Find It / Buy It, General

When I go the fabric store I'm always attracted to the Jelly Rolls. All those coordinating colors, all pre-cut and lined up together, they're so inpiring when I see them. Naturally, I've caved into the pressure and bought one (or two or three). But, when I get home I'm suddenly at a loss of what to do with them. (And, I ...

August 17, 2010 in Find It / Buy It, Tips & Tricks

Most garment patterns these days are multi-sized, meaning there are several sizes layered on top of each other then printed on the tissue. This isn’t a problem if you only want to make one size. However, what if you want to make one size now, and a different size later?  One way to solve this problem is to trace the ...

Do you ever have more than one project going at one time?  Maybe you want to sew and embroider at the same time.  So where are you going to lay your material and hoop?  This happens to me all the time and my folding table with 2 machines setting on top is just not cutting it!   So, I recently purchased a new ...

Something to share…

April 8, 2010 in Find It / Buy It

Probably one of the things I love most about sewers is that they are always eager and willing to share.
