Hi all, Some time ago I asked about whether a gift was given at the dinner to the hostess. You told me that I didn't need to but I did anyway because they have been very kind to my youngest daughter who loves their son. My daughter also told me that I have to make a 'curry' as my contribution....

Sewing machine suggestion by Trixie[_2_]
My sister just started sewing her first quilt and her Singer machine broke! She would like a good, basic sewing machine to replace it. She does not need fancy stitches or fancy anything else. What do you suggest? Thank you in advance. Trixie

My Yoga mat by Brian Christiansen
Recently, on this group, or perhaps rct.sewing, somebody mentioned making a small quilt as a yoga mat. Several people mentioned that this is a bad idea, as it would slide all over the floor. I was at tepwnbwaw ("that evil place whose name begins with a "W", just seeing if I can get my own...
