The Quilt Show is a new online program by Alex Anderson of Simply Quilts fame. Check it out! You have to be a member to read the blog, and a paying member to watch the show, just FYI.
I got a great set of patterns for under 18.00 from this seller on eBay. I thought it was a great deal!
While in Hawaii, I discovered that there is a Hawaiian Fabric Outlet. Be still my beating heart LOL. Great fabric, really nice people and a huge warehouse of fabric. What could be better?
I did great on thrifting last week, take a look at my take!!! I went to Sac’s, which is a real hit or miss. Do you have a great thrift store in your town? I also like Legacy in Sebastapol CA and Scrap in San Francisco. You can find lists of shops in your area by looking at this site or Yelp.
I’ll use these for cookie jars, I just love them!!
Embroidery machine parts and hoops:
bias tape and hand needle punched poodle:
Vintage craft and cook books
Old Mad and Crack’d magazines, all from the early 1980’s
Huge button collection. The girls have been playing with them, but they are really old and some are cool:
There was a sewing machine as well, but I don’t really need another. I wonder where the embroidery machine got to though…
