Use for Postcard Sleeves? by Susan Laity Price
While cleaning and rearranging my studio I found a package of plastic Postcard Sleeves (3 11/16" x 5 3/4"). I know I bought them for something to do with quilting but can't remember what was the intended purpose. Anyone have any ideas? Susan

I remembered a post from Betsy regarding the Accuquilter system. I had replied that it seemed expensive for the dyes, etc and that she would probably be better off applying the retail price towards her sewing machine that was on layaway. I have changed my mind because of medical reasons! I...

for those not on FaceBook by [email protected]
Just wanted to touch base here - I'm on FB more than anything else these days. Brady, the goofy chocolate lab who hated water, passed away suddenly last night. Apparently he had a tumor rupture and there was nothing they could do to save him. Thomas has claimed Brady's HUG for himself, along...
