Touring America’s Most Attractive Quilt Shop

It was so much fun touring the oh-so unique Quiltique shop! Going live at a different location (on a phone at that!) is bound to have mishaps but luckily we were able to transition our tour into two parts fairly smoothly! To find events like this one and more near you, visit our site HERE. This special live is only available on our Facebook but we will be back to streaming to both Facebook and YouTube next week. We can’t wait to show off all the February #dimedoors you all have been stitching for our #dimesewalong!

Quilt Market Vendor Walk Giveaway!

There’s still time to win the goodies from the Quilt Market Vendor Walk.  If you missed it live, you can watch anytime this week as we’ll select the winner on Friday, Nov. 1, 2019.  Two people who share the most will receive half the goodies!  All you have to do is tell your friends, leave a comment, share an emoji, spread some hearts or give a few thumbs up.  I had a blast – it was long – over two hours – but you’ll get to see new fabrics, new tools, new lights, new everything!  All of the vendors have their latest products on display.  Some were generous and gave Christopher Blakeman and I wonderful give-aways.  We ran into sewing celebs – Jenny Doan! Kaffee Fasset!  Alison Glass! Shelly Smola!  Well, you really have to watch to see everything.  I can’t believe it’s two hours long because it flew by.  I loved chatting with the viewers during the broadcast. Just so fun!

Tomorrow, I’ll unveil gift #6 on my Holiday Gift Making list.  Join me at 1:00 CST on Facebook or YouTube (broadcasting on both channels simultaneously). You don’t want to miss this because I’ll doing something on a single needle machine that many think is impossible!
