Hi Quilters!

Along with the funny things that have happened to me along the quilting road, I am looking for the funniest signs. If any of you have pictures of funny or ridiculous signs, send me a picture. Maybe they will be collected and put into a book.

The funny things that have happened to me are in my book
,Everyone Can Quilt.

Got pictures of funny signs? Email them to us HERE

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

Read the pattern twice, lay out all of the tools needed and press/starch fabric before cutting....Catie

I inherited approx 25 unquilted quilt tops from my grandmother. She passed away about 28 years ago and I know most of them were made between 30 and 60 years ago. Unfortunately Grandma didn't mark any of them with her name and date. My tip is to always mark, or attach label to your quilts indicating who made them, date made, name of the pattern, and any other pertinent info. Whoever later recieves the quilts will greatly appreciate the info.....Billie

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.
