You asked about the fabric for the tote I made. Are you wanting the specific fabrics I used or just fabric amounts for making one. If the former, it was from my stash and is a few years old, so I really don't have info on it. I can get you the other info, though, if that is what you want. It's a great bag to make.
Hi~~I just started a group called New York Stitchers. Would love to have you join! I thought it would be fun to share info on quilt shops, events and everything in general about our state.
Hope you'll join us!!
My setup is a Pfaff GrandQuilter on a Next Generation quilting frame. I am pleased with the setup. I can't afford a long arm yet so this set up really works for me. I have quilted about 10 quilts so far. Just learning and doing mostly meandering, but it is a great start. I also use a stitch regulator and that really helps. You will love it once you get started. Happy Quilting, Julia
Thanks for the info. No I haven't been to Calico Gals, it's the first I have heard of it. I will have to check it out next time I get a day off. Thanks! I expect that you have some wonderful quilts out there, quilting since '74.
Hi Maregold, we are around the same age and have enjoyed quilting for the same length of time. I am mom to three, one adopted and two step. Grandmother to 4- none we get to see. What type of quilting do you like?
Your thread talks about setting up your frames. Check out www.thequiltingschool.com it has some great free videos, may not be your system, but it should be close to how the fabric is put on the frames.
I do shop at Patricia's on and off. My daughter and I have been to the quilt show they put on two years in a row now. As for Material Rewards, I have only been there once. It doesn't always work out with the hours they have and when I could get there. We go to Ivy Thimble quite a bit, but the closest one we usually go to is in Spen. Betty's Quilting. We have taken some classes there and I hope to get some more in soon. It's been a while and I really enjoy going to the classes, especially to be in touch with the some of the other ladies that quilt there. It's just nice to have the chance to sit and chat, etc.
Nice to hear someone is as close as Livonia. I live in North Chili, NY. We have probably even been to some of the same quilt store, maybe at the same time. It's that "small world" thing! Have a great day!
Hi, Maregold! I thought I'd check in on you and see how your basement sewing room project is coming along! I'll be doing the same thing, eventually. My space in the attic is short on shelving and long on big tubs full of stuff and I stack things on top of them. NOT very condusive to being organized!
Where in NY is Livonia? My husband and I have a cabin outside of Loweville, but closer to Glenfield. We're on the very western edge of the Adirondack State Park. Beautiful country and we have it winterized.
