  • Re: Keeping my fabric free from pet hair

    Sorry to hear your dog passed and a gate is a better idea than using batting to pick up the dog hair.

  • Re: Keeping my fabric free from pet hair

    I found this out when I was FMQ and pet hair just loved sticking to the batting. So why not use the same thing batting with a swifter before doing any quilting. Works like a charm and now I don't have any pet hair from my beloved pets on my beloved quilts

  • Keeping my fabric free from pet hair

    I have a dog who spends a lot of time in my kitchen and often there is at least some dog hair floating around. I don't like dog hair in my food or on my quilts. I use a small leftover piece of batting and my swifter and just go over the floor quickly before beginning my project. All of the dog hair clings to it and when I'm quilting everything

  • Re: Keeping my pins sharp

    I would personally be afraid to try that, I don't know if that could damage components in the bobbin area.

  • Keeping my pins sharp

    Many years ago when my daughter was in the Brownies she made me a pin cushion using a recycled tuna can. We did not have any batting to use as stuffing and she used a piece of steel wool and covered it with fabric and lace. It turned out beautiful, but even better each time I inserted a pin or pulled out a pin the steel wool sharpened that pin. I just

    Hi Linda, I am sure you won't have a problem with paper piecing, once you get the hang of it. I have only did one paper piecing project, but the piece's were super tiny.

  • Re: Introduce Yourself

    Hi Donna, I have only done one paper piecing quilt but really like it. I'm sure you can do the Jinney Beyer pattern, what pattern is it? The worst that could happen is you have to rip out a seam. Well nice getting to know what your up to. I have to get familiar with navigating this site. Could not even figure out how to introduce myself. Well I'm

  • Keeping bobbins with the thread neatly organized

    To help my bobbins stay with the spool of thread I like to use chopsticks and a large piece of styrofoam that is purchased in the florist department of craft store's. I just insert the chopstick in the piece of foam then slip the spool of thread through the chopstick and stack the filled bobbins on top. Everything is together nice and neat. I don't
