Mini-iron problem

Posted by Barbara Graham on April 15, 2014 at 4:50pm 0 Comments

Hi all,

When I was at retreat this past weekend I thought I'd try my new Clover Mini-iron, the kind with a tip that can be changed. It's a disaster. Or the operator (me) is the disaster. I was using it with starch. It got all black and gummy and I have black marks on my fabric and can't get the little tip clean. I sent an email to Clover but haven't heard back yet.

Has anyone else experienced this? This is my first (maybe last) experience using the mini-iron. I thought it would…

Buyer beware: Missouri Star Quilt Company

  Recently ordered a "Tavern Blues Quilt Kit" online along with several of their fabrics and I'm having some problems.  Read for yourself and be warned before buying from these people.  I had no idea and did not see this one coming.  Any advice is welcome.  I've never disputed a purchase on my credit card before but this may be the first.  The call and email were made early today and still no…


Revisting a quilt

Posted by ann/LA on April 15, 2014 at 10:03am 5 Comments

Have you ever had a quilt that when you finished it you just was not happy with it ? Well I was looking through some quilt that I had quilted back in the (way back) past and found one that I must have just gave up on and was not happy with it so I put  a binning on and called it finished . I think that I have come a long way in my quilting that I'm going to go back and redo this quilt. I love the fabric and how it was pieced so I want it to be quilted better.…

Where did spring, summer & fall go?

Posted by Janet/MO on April 14, 2014 at 11:16am 12 Comments

It was 82 degrees on Saturday & today it is snowing!  I'm beginning to think that some how or another I just slept through spring, summer & fall and am back dealing with winter.  My poor daffodils are looking kind of bewildered and my huge tree doesn't know what to do.  So if anyone knows where spring is, would you please tell it that we would like it to come back to visit in Mid-Missouri?
