Fabric Review: Giucy_Guice

I sat down with Giuseppe Ribaudo at Quilt Market for all of five minutes. While I wanted more time to look at other lines, the five minutes was all I needed.

An Early Morning Quilt Market Report

Please permit me a bit of a reminisce and reflection here. It'll only take a moment. I started attending when I took the Associate Editor position with Generation Q Magazine. Quilt Market will always hold a bit of magic and mystery.

Creative Sewing Center & Frixion Pens

I can't say it enough, I love teaching machine quilting.  The irony of that statement is that early on I used to say, "if its not hand quilted it's not a quilt".    Yep, I'm one who said that to people.   Then I had the eye opening experience of going to a quilt show… Continue reading Creative Sewing Center & Frixion Pens
