Public Service Announcement!



No matter how much Extra fluff your thighs may have, DO NOT use them to catch falling items such as a seam ripper!!
The whole entire inch went in and I didn't feel a thing until I looked to see where it had gone....
WHUUUAAAA!!!!

Priority #1: DO NOT bleed on the quilt:)
Waddle to get paper towels with object sticking out of leg.
Gently remove and apply pressure.
Take a sewing intermission preferably with a glass of wine.
That will teach me to correct my mistakes!

It is easy to joke about it now but in all seriousness this could have been much worse.
During the course of our sewing day (years) we tend to get slack in our safety precautions...
-Put the pins in our mouth
-Leave the rotary cutter open and/or unlocked
-Forget to the shut off the iron
I feel some of you nodding along.

So please take that extra moment to be safe.
Do the extra crunch to bend over and pick up the item off the floor.
Your body will thank you.

Machine Quilting for anyone!

Have you wanted to attempt machine quilting or are you looking for a new way to approach it?
This is the class for you!  I have met Christa and so it was no surprise to me that her class would be well organized and exactly what it says it is: Plan It, Stitch It, Quilt It! 

Christa's class is perfect for anyone wanting to start machine quilting. Her voice is calm and her instruction is precise and linear.  There is a great combination of walking foot and free motion instruction. 

As a student I appreciated the method of showing how to draw out your design first and then follow that up with the machine work.  This is so accessible for the home student.

Christa has graciously offered a 50% off code for you to access.  It will show up in your cart and is only available for her class until 4/4/17:

Enjoy and Have Fun!!
