Holiday weekend

I'm on vacation in Texas to visit my brother and attend his youngest daughters wedding Saturday. My mom and I are here together. It's been several years since I've been here...in fact, for his oldest daughters wedding!

Hope you all have a lovely Memorial Day weekend. Please take a moment to remember those brave souls that lost their lives for our freedom!

Hi All -

I also wanted to post a quick note that we will be having a one week 30% off batting sale, plus we've got…

If nothing ever changed, there'd be no butterflies.

You might have noticed a few small changes to the QWU home page. Don't worry! Nothing is gone, just moved around a little.

We've added a small section called Connecting Threads Staff Blog. You'll still see all of our posts in the regular Blog Post section (just below the Staff Blog), but now important messages about security, new cool products (like my fav scissors) will stay near the top.

At the far left, we've dropped the links to the Discussion Forum, but it's still… Continue

My new favorite scissors!

Have you seen these on our website yet? They're new and I LOVE them!!!! I have a pair next to my machine, a pair in my hand sewing kit and a pair at my desk. They are super sharp, the lid snaps on tight and doesn't fall off, and the holes are big enough for my sausage… Continue

There's more than one way to skin a goose

Sorry, that was mean! Just checking to see if you're paying attention. :)

How about "What's good for the goose is good for the gander" OR "Lazy as a beaver. Gentle as a bull. Clean as a pig. Smart as a goose.". Okay, sorry, I'm done.

A little of this, a little of that

This weekend I accomplished much, but not all of what I wanted. It's finally warm enough here in the NW to plant tomatoes, so I had fun with the local high school students picking out which plants to buy. They were at the farmers market and all their plants were grown by the students!

I love Spring through Fall when I can go to the farmers markets… Continue

I used my new machine - for 5 minutes!

I got to sew the binding on my Mom's birthday present with my new sewing machine. She sewed like a dream! I made this for the catalog - it's out of Cheep Talk which I really like. I think because it's so bright and cheery. My Mom loved it. It's called the…

Meet the newest member of my sewing family

This is Jada Janome - she was my Mother's Day present from my precious son Tyler - he's only one but obviously a great shopper! There is also a picture of her next to my faithful first sewing machine Gemma Janome. Gemma has served me well but didn't really have a lot of stitches or many features for me to advance my quilting. Jada has more room, a table, tons of stitches, adjustable…
