Welcome to Gifty Galore 2016!

Our new Gifty Galore Christmas project season begins July 18th this year and runs through December 19th! And, Anita is back with more wonderful designers! 

We are using the book, Fast, Fun, and More Gifty. It is compiled and written especially for us! Our newest Gifty book is the best ever for preparing a gift-giving extravaganza. There are even MORE small and quick projects. Hey, you'll be able to use the projects in this book all year long!

Get ready… prepare your sewing space, oil the machine, and finish up any UFOs because you’re going to be busy! I challenge you to keep up with us!

  1. Time frame is from July 18th - December 19th, 2016 for the weekly projects.
  2. Please post all project questions on Notions where you will find the complete blog. All information is kept together there for reference later and It's much easier to find!
  3. You can join at any time. If you are not a member of our Quilt With Us Community, click the "Signup and Join" box in the upper-right corner. Once you're a member, you will see a green plus sign and a link to join "Gifty Galore” in the upper-right of the group page. Clicking on the link will allow you to join Gifty Galore.

Mary ~ You're stuck with me for a while (actually, quite a while) longer! (Cackle!)

Diane ~ Why was the $ Store upset because you "made a purchase at their store"? Should we shop there less, or, just buy one thing at a time there? Humm...... (Tehee!) Oh, I'm a stinker I know. I'll behave. Hey Diane, are one of those 30 mugs with mug cozies for me?????? Oh, please - oh, please - o please!!!!

Oh, my, goodness! No, I'm not going anywhere. I will have more time in my sewing studio because I took on a BIG quilt project and I have to spend time there. (Yeah, I'm forced to be in my quilt studio! hee, hee) I would love to be forced to be there more often! Hummmm, maybe I need to take on these projects more often!!! Yeah, that's the ticket!

Great idea of the dollar store for the mugs. I haven't thought of that. I'll have to go by this weekend!

Diane - I looked at our dollar store and didn't see the perfect mug. Did you get white? I bet the cashier wasn't happy with you if she had to wrap each mug so it wouldn't break. They should be happy though to sell $30 at a Dollar Store. It is so much easier to make multiples of things once you have made one. I used to do that when I did craft bazaars. Now I don't have many people to make things for so I don't do that anymore. NO I am not going to make any of you anything. I'm anxious to see your cozy!

30 mugs? 30!!! Are you going into the mug cozy business or are you trying to show us all up? And this after the hundreds of placemats? Or are you just making up these large numbers so we'll all come visit you to check out the truth? And I thought princesses were lazy.

p.s. I am impressed. I haven't done a thing in weeks. I get home from work, walk the puppy, and collapse in front of the boob tube.

Good Morning Ladies,
I found the perfect mugs at the Dollar Store for my Mug Cozies so I bought 30. The cashier was not to thrilled with me! I finally found buttons. So hopefully I can post one [Mug Cozy] today!

MARI why are you going to have more time in your quilt Studio? Please tell me you are not leaving us!!!
Comment by MaryAgnes/NYC on July 30, 2009 at 7:36am
Mari: Why will it change soon? Are you retiring? And how soon is soon?
Comment by Mari/WA on July 30, 2009 at 7:06am
Cheryl ~ Have a great vacation!

Doris ~ I know what you mean..... being in my quilt studio with my sewing machine is like a vacation! I rarely get there anymore! That will change soon though!! Wahoo! Mary is right; there are many places where you can rent machines.
Comment by MaryAgnes/NYC on July 30, 2009 at 7:00am
Doris: Check with a local quilt shop. Maybe they know where you could rent a machine. No more threats.
Comment by Doris Barnes on July 30, 2009 at 6:54am
Checking in from vacation - beautiful Kiawah Island, SC - if my family only knew !! Wanted to make sure I catch up with the many posts here! I was fortunate to get some UFOs done before I left, and catching up on quilt magazine reading (and planning future projects) on the beach! I LOVE the beach, but honestly can't wait to get home to my sewing machine! I keep threatening that one year I will bring it with me!! LOL
