The question on everyone's lips..... I love ric rac and sell it in all colours and sizes, my fav would have to be the linen ric rac. Have never known how you measure the width of the different ric racs until now.
Great to use when doing embroidery, simply run through your printer, press onto your background fabric and start stitching.
Then simply remove by submerging in warm water, agitate for 2 - 3 minutes and rinse thoroughly.
Like many of you, my girls love English Paper Piecing. Bron and l caught up with Sue from Patchwork With Busy Fingers at the trade show on the weekend. We are both hooked. Bron is working on an Apple Core class sample for Term 1 next year. More about that when the Term 1 Newsletter is complete.
In the meantime you might like to take a look at the tutorial Sue has kindly given us permission to add to the blog.
If you need any papers let me know. Which reminds me, l'd better add the papers to the blog.
I received this email this morning, l re jigged it a bit. Hope it gives you something to think about.
Why not think outside the box this Christmas and support local small businesses.
How about gift certificates from your local hairdresser or barber?Maybe a membership at the local gym. Or organise to have a car detailed?
If you are thinking big perhaps organise to have lawns mowed, windows washed or games at the local golf course. Perhaps a gift certificate at a local restaurants.Pay for the next car service.
Local crafts people spin their own wool and knit them into scarves. They make jewellery, and pottery and beautiful wooden boxes, visit your local Sunday markets.
Plan your holiday outings at local, owner operated restaurants and leave your waiter a nice tip. And, how about going out to see a play or ballet at your hometown theatre.Musicians need love too, so find a venue showcasing local bands.
By thinking creatively you will be supporting small businesses. This could be a new Christmas tradition.
I know a little quilt shop who'd be happy to organise a gift for a quilter.
March, April, May Calendar I am away from Saturday April 15th until Monday May 8th. going on a road trip with seven other ladies from Chicago to Nashville. Along the way there will be a quilt shop or 2 and 4 days at the Paducah Quilt Market. I will be posting my adventures on the blog and Facebook.
The shop will be closed during that time.
