Heartworks...Sharing knowledge every stitch of the way!
We have been featured in an international trade magazine "Fabshop News"
in the November 2012 issue. How exciting!
Nancy R. from Clinton, NY says "What a wonderful homey shop"
I am so glad that I found you. This will be a destination for me from now on"
Bobby came from Kentucky to NY to visit her brother and stopped in to
oggle the goodies and tell us "I love your newsletter and look forward to reading it every week".
We love to hear that! Molly likes Bobby, she followed her all around the shop, getting tickles along the way.
Cristy Gilmore and Kim Schrader from Utica, NY
"What a beautiful shop, it's definately worth the drive!"
Kim Says "I love the comfortable and relaxing environment.
A great selection of fabric. I can't wait to come back."
Cristy and Kim are both barbers who like to quilt!
Sharon Aitchison Cobleskill, NY
Sharon loves her little 12 1/2 pound Baby Lock Audrey
and takes her every where she goes to sew! Audrey loves
Sharon because she likes to spend time with the ladies!
Ken, Laura and a little McDonald
"We come all the way from New Hartford, NY for the wonderful selection of flannel
here at Heartworks. The people are so helpful and the scenery is so beautiful."
Darlene told us " I love to come to Heartworks because
I find the perfect fabric and get lots of ideas".
"I just couldn't resist the beautiful flannel coordinates
and this is what they turned in to, a beautiful bed topper!"
The best tip ever says Jim~
Jim, hubby Jim that is, likes to read the " Tip of the week " and
he was really interested in the tip about cold feet, as his are always cold! He got
a new pair of boots and didn't wear them because they weren't warm. He was anxious to
volunteer his new boots as a tip test. So we tried the " Tip of the week " cutting insul-fleece
the same size as the boot insoles. We put the insul-fleece under the insoles and he took
the girls for a run in the orchard on a really cold night and came back with warm feet!
The next morning Jim and the girls disappeared down to the barn and came back
with his turn out boots (Jim is a volunteer firefighter here in Fly Creek).
We made a pair of insoles for the fire boots. He came home from as recent
5AM 12 degree temp structure fire with warm feet! He is sold and I am sure that in
addition to sewing patches on fire and EMS jackets, we will be making more feet warm in Fly Creek!
Linda Labayewski from Clark Mills, NY
stopped in to show us her beautiful Christmas
stocking quilt and to tell us thank you for figuring out the math for her~
Linda says that she wanted a Christmas quilt and a friend gave
her the pattern. She had fun making the quilt and loves it!
You can see Linda peeking over the top of her quilt.
We can figure out math for you too!
Billie Jean Leitz called to tell us that she is having the time of her life
and loving the new "Lil Twister" ruler that we showed her.
New products are always fun to use.
Billie used a Moda charm pack to create this beauty!
When Suzie Voelker from Gilbertsville, NY needs a bit of help with a project she comes to see us.
Suzie and her best buddy Ruthie Baker wanted to make a velveteen dress for Natalie Nicole
who is almost 2 years old for a special day, her adoption.
Annie Demirel- RN
Annie stopped in on her way to Maine to tell us a wonderful story "This is just a note to let all
of you who partiticipated in making quilts for our servicemen and women know that your efforts are deeply
appreciated by those who receive them.I have had the honor of taking care of our soldiers at one of the
big military hospitals in Texas. While there it struck me how many beautiful quilts I was seeing.When
I asked one of the soldiers who had made it for him he informed me that the American people are making
them to show their appeciation and that every wounded warrior receives one.
Annie went on to say that it seemed to her that his quilt was more valuable to him than a medal.
The quilts really are a source of physical comfort and an emotional boost as these soldiers
deal with their healing process.
We here at Heartworks also want to thank all of you who made quilts and sent blocks
for us to put into quilts. We sent about 45 quilt tops to Washington State to a big quilt guild who
then backed, batted, quilted them and sent them on to a big military hospital nearby in Washington.
Perhaps we should do this again. What do you think?
a note from Pat Wilson ---- Hi Bunny -- my daughter-in-law has a friend whose hubby was severly injured in Iraq. thought he might lose a leg. I clicked on the pic on facebook and noticed he had a beautiful quilt on top of the sheets. I wrote to his wife and she replied that every soldier being med-evacked to Tampa for therapy had a quilt made by some group in the USA. She said it was a beautiful sight. She said his quilt came out of San Diego - to Washington DC - now is with him to Tampa. so now you know that the quilts you sent really do reach their destination. a good thing you do.
US Marine with his quilt!
A note from Teresa Ritton---
Good Morning Margaret -
I just finished reading on your website about Quilts for Wounded Warriors. What a wonderful idea. Kim works at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio. I wonder if that is the same one Annie Demiral is referring to. Kim's hospital is located next to the Intreped. She has done some work with these soldiers in transition and has helped from a medical standpoint with some "games" designed for the soldiers who have lost limbs. It kind of puts life in perspective. If you decide to do something for this worthwhile project, please let me know.
Every day is exciting at Heartworks and today was no exception.
Today a young man named Ryan Walsh stop by. Ryan learned to quilt from his Grandmother
our friend and "Jimmy Quilter" Allegra Lake. He is a funeral director in Delhi, NY
and as he told us "I'm just a guy who quilts." Quilts and makes samples for Moda Bake Shop.
