Hi Quilters!
Well as crazy as our winter was and as hot as our summer has been, there's no telling what's next. Typically around the middle of August we start to notice little things like the ferns in the forests dying off, the first tinges of the earliest maple leaves changing, impending winter types of stuff. So because our winter was so long, and our summer has been so hot I figured fall was a ways off. Not so! On my way to the office just this morning, I saw the first signs of a dying fern. Not good! Not good at all. But what to do? Well, we'll just take it with a grain of salt and start our autumn celebrations like we do every year.

What's On Sale....

Autumn Stuff, of course!

Fall Splendor

Aproximate size is 36" x 48".

Perfect for variagated fabrics, hand dyeds, batiks and themed fabrics. Think beyond the pattern.

Reader's Hints, Tips and Techniques....

Vivian mentioned the 'bird nests' that can form when starting stitching if you don't hold your thread. I always use a 'startie' and 'stoppie' when machine piecing. That is a small scrap of fabric you stitch through at the beginning of machine piecing; chain sew until you reach the end of that series of piecing and stitch through a 'stoppie' and you are ready for the next series of machine piecing.....Sue

Measure twice, cut once. Masking tape and the floor make for the best place to stretch and pin a quilt. Angled (curved) safety pins are a fingernail saver....Lucy

Kaye On TV....

We get a lot of phone calls and emails asking where to find Kaye on their TV. The simple answer is we don't know, (sorry). Here's what to do. Call your PBS, cable and satellite providers and ask them. If they don't show it, ask them to add it to their lineup. Our shows are called Kaye's Quilting Friends and Quilting The Kaye Wood Way.
