  • Re: Storing Fabric

    That is a great story, Flojo. And I would love to have a china cabinet to store fabric in. I love to be able to see the fabric and I store it on shelves, but I worry about dust all the time. The glass doors would solve that.

  • Re: Washing fabrics

    I don't wash unless I am using a lot of white alongside heavily saturated solids. I like the crisp feel of the unwashed fabric when I work with it.

  • Re: used fabric softner sheets = Stabilizer

    I don't use them, but I think remembering that I read that they can be used for applique, too.

  • Re: It's Time for MQ V!

    I have never done a MQ before and I don't know if they are all like this one or if this one is different because we are doing it as a "chatty" group, but I am having so much fun reading all the emails about fabric choice. I sure am glad to know I'm not the only one that frets over making the "right" choice!
