Bye for now. by Shirley
Well dear friends it looks as if I shall be losing you. My ISP have said they are dropping Usenet in 5 days time. I asked them if they were dropping the amount I pay since I am losing part of the service. Alas I did not get a reply. My son is also with the same provider and is looking at other...

Quilting nightmare -- literally by Julia in MN[_5_]
A few nights ago, I dreamed that I had arrived at a quilting retreat at a location about 3 hours from where I live. After I got there, I realized that I had the patterns for the projects I wanted to work on, but I had left the fabric and my sewing machine at home. I had to turn around and go...

Finally the Flower Garden Quilt Top by [email protected]
This quilt top is from "The Quilter Magazine" year 2013. I have already cut out the 30 sets of pieces that make up the quilt top. Yesterday I started sewing the blocks to gather. This is a challenge for me because there are 12 half squares in each block, two different sizes. Progress is slow...

Businesses by Brian[_3_]
Recently I posted about a youtube video about making a cell phone cover (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=axqDa__c9Zg). I then made a cover for my phone that is slightly smaller and a cover for my kindle that is slightly bigger than the pattern in the video. A while after that, I was paying...

Nancy Rink by [email protected]
am MAD as Hell! Thieves broke into my studio over the weekend and stole virtually every quilt (see the album What the Thieves Stole). This is an oh so wonderful follow-up to the break in a week and a half ago in which one quilt was stolen. We had beefed up security but the thieves paid no...

Long sashing strips query... by - dlm.
