November Meeting

November's meeting took me back to meetings in past years - the hustle bustle of 'normal' meeting activities like signing in, catching up and sharing a laugh with friends, dropping off fat quarters for the draw, signing up for the Sew and Share, checking out the latest books and magazines in the library and trying (unsuccessfully) to get a peek…

Quilting Tips and Tricks

Photography 101 For Quilters

One of the most important non-sewing skills you can have as a quilter is to be able to photograph, edit and share photos of your work. You’ll want to do this to share your creations on social media or keep a visual record of your projects. You may also need to do it to enter quilt shows. (NB: Quilt shows…

Let's…

On The Road Again…

Summer days and road trips go hand in hand. For me, that means heading out on shop hops, near and far, especially after two summers of covid 'hibernation'. High gas prices make this a bit more of a challenge this year, but hard to resist the lure of a quilt shop visit. Am I right? Many of you have already…
