We’re inviting you to watch our quilt newsletter…

| July 17, 2011

I’ve been involved with many a newsletter during my graphics career as well as teaching students to produce newsletters, but didn’t wanted to publish one until January, 2011.

It’s a simple, free, monthly newsletter with photos, graphics, articles, tips, and a fun area called, “meet your new friend” where quilters from across the world are interviewed and their quilts highlighted.

We write articles and present information (and free stuff) in the newsletter
that isn’t always available on our blog, websites, or Facebook.

We made a short video to share a little about the newsletter; hope you enjoy it!

Longarm quilter you will want to meet!

| June 30, 2011

I want to share a few snippets from our current newsletter featuring Anita Estes, longarm quilter extraordinaire.

Anita explained, “I discovered quilt making when living with my grandparents as a young child.  Can’t tell about my love of quilts without telling about them because the things they taught me were a big influence on who I am today.

Anita is a professional longarm quilter with a big heart. She mades memory quilts from clothing of deceased individuals, finishes UFO tops (unfinished quilt tops) donated to her and gives them to charity, machine quilts for textile artists, designs her own quilts, and
hosts three blogs with tons of quilt related tutorials!

Below is a sample of quilting out extra fullness into a beautiful design.

 

 

 

 

 
There is so much more about Anita to share! If you are wondering…it’s in the July issue. Sign up to the left of this post.

Not a pressing problem

| February 14, 2009

The room was abuzz and all the workshop attendees wanted one. This was not the first time members of the group had adapted products to meet quilters needs. Several of the group had small folding tables, even tv trays which were used as ironing boards. The tables were complete with small Hobbico custom sealing irons, the perfect size for workshop travel bags. But this day they were all interested in Anne’s innovation, the strip stick.

Rather than tell you about it, I’ve asked Anne a few questions.

 What is your quilting background?  I have been sewing most of my life.  I have been a member of the local quilt guild for several years and am currently working on my fifth quilt. Since I’ve been interested in quilting for at least ten years, I’ve learned a lot from other quilters and have taken quite a few classes.
