Our friend Cheryl from Albany is on a roll! See what happens when you clean out your sewing room?
Our custom quiter Julie is also a bag lady!
She makes awesome bags to sell.
This style is a favorite with her customers.
If you need a bag let us know, we will send you to Julie~
We have a pact with our friend Cheryl from Albany. She has a LOT of fabric, decided to clean out her sewing room and brought bags of treasures to us with the plea that we finish some of the started projects. So we have! Some have been turned into Jimmy Quilts to take to Dana Farber in June. Now Cheryl has gotten motivated to work on the pile she has left and she is making Jimmy Quilts too!!
We both needed a kick in the pants to finish stuff!
Linda wouldn't let us take her picture so meet John

Becky, our friend from Delhi, has pulled an "oldie but goodie" out of the closet and is determined to finish it by this September. She plans to put it in the Delhi quilt show. She started this a long time ago, anyone care to guess? I'ts all embroidered by hand and is lovely.
We met a lovely lady, Andree, this past week who hand dyes and creates
exquisite silk scarves. She was rolling hems on her sewing machine with the snail foot and not really happy with the results. We introduced her to a Baby Lock Imagine serger and she was in awe! The hems are as beautiful as her scarves! With her new Imagine serger she will be able to hem in a fraction of the time, have perfect results every time and have more time to dye and create .
What could be better than that?
Andree is using three different thread colors in some hems
and they actually become part of the design element.
Some are hemmed with a rolled hem using decorative threads in theupper looper and some are done with a three thread narrow and three different color threads. Andree tells us "This has changed the way I approach my work." Imagine that?
Andree is exhibiting at a show at the Lincoln Center in NY soon and we are sure her Baby Lock Imagine serger will be going with her.
Busy with her Imagine Serger!
West Winfield NY
is a master quilter and she brought her "Spring Bulb" quilt in to show us.
We designed this quilt and taught the applique classes seven or so years ago. It has lots of embroidery and is a real beauty. Shirley asked how many of the folks who took the classes with us have finished their quilts and we don't know, but we sure are curious. If you have a finished bulb quilt bring it in so we can make a "bulb quilt photo gallery".
Shirley has moved to pennsylvania to be near her son
and we sure do miss her!
