Here's my latest organization tip. And it is only because I introduced my daughter to paper piecing. she is a bit obsessive compulsive and can't stand disorganization... How did she survive as my daughter???? Anyway she organized my scrap keepers system  . The pics are before and after drawers

M&s designs, Thank you for the clarification, I do so hope it can be rescued?

Marianne, many are getting a message when they log into QWU.  It states that QWU is at risk of being shut down from lack of payment.  We all have our fingers crossed the CT will pay the bill and QWU will not go down.

Thank you, there is nothing specific, I just like the fact that one can click in to  freebies, community, Tec when we need it, I have not seen any date for closing, could this be fake?

You can also access them on YouTube, unless they delete them, which I doubt. That's the nice thing about videos.

Im not sure if you are referring to tutorials that are specific to QWU?  I am not even aware of where to find them... I do know that when I find a tutorial I like on you tube or another sewing site,  I save it to pinterest.. That waY I can find it easily.  I  just  found some video tutorials under the "learnig" tab.  I found if I hit the share link I could save them to pinterest.

I don't know, but I'm trying to figure out where I can save all my project information. Maybe as a document? I always come here and look when someone asks me how I made this or that, or what year or where I got the idea or the pattern.

Can anyone tell me, is there a way of saving some of the teaching tutorials for me to access if swum does close, I love accessing them and all the friends details to keep in touch with, would be upset to loose them.  Marianne

I am a long time member of "Quilting With Us" (QWU). I used to give virtual workshops here. Like many others, I have ventured out as QWU became more quiet.

We are getting the warning that QWU is at risk of being disabled. I fear this is a sign that QWU will one day be no more.

It has become like family here and the thought of losing the friendships we have developed has giving me a sad heart. Like many dark clouds, there is a silver lining. When I ventured out, I created a quilters social network, much like QWU. I never mentioned it, for it was a conflict of interest. However, in this dark hour, it is time to let others know there is an alternative. It does not have to end here.

I would be honored for QWU members to join "Pattern Pastiche". If needed, we are more than happy to create a group for your new home.

Here is one shot of the newly rearranged room  I am still a messy worker.  But now I have room to walk around the room.
