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!

Patches!!!

Once you make a monogram patch, you’ll know why patches are #8 on my 2019 Holiday gift-making list!  It’s so easy in Inspiration’s Perfect Embroidery Pro.  Open a new file in Perfect Embroidery Pro. Select the artwork tool and the Ellipse.

Hold the Ctrl key down on the keyboard and drag the cursor across the screen to create a perfect circle. Size the circle to 2.25″ for left chest embroidery.  Select the circle, right click and select Convert to Applique.

Select the Text Tool. Type the three-letter monogram in the Properties Box and select the Circle Monogram from the list of fonts. Size the monogram to fill the 2.25″ circle. Change the color of the monogram if you don’t want it to stitch in the same color as the applique outline.

Save the design in the appropriate format and stitch it on the heavy-duty water soluble found in the Patch Maker Kit (special offer this week!).  Then follow the instructions in the Patch Maker Kit to permanently attach the patch.  Watch last week’s Facebook Live video to learn more.  You’ll find tips on using patches on slippers, shoes, down jackets, children’s wear and more!

Top 10 Gift List: #2

It’s holiday prep time!  Last week, I revealed the first of my top 10 gifts for the holiday season. You’ll get a sneak peek of each project on Wednesdays and a lesson on Facebook Live the following day, Thursdays at 1:00 CST.  Last week, I featured embroidered jewelry.  Tomorrow, it’s an eyeglass case.

All the ladies on your gift list can use an eyeglass case for prescription specs, readers or sunny shades.  I’m tackling this task in multiples as you can see here.

Join me tomorrow at 1:00 CST on Facebook Live for the how-to. You can use an embroidery machine or skip the hoop altogether.  I’m sure you know what method I chose!  I’ll show you how to sew the outer bag and lining, box the corners, sew and ‘birth’ the bag.  Then I’ll share my tricks for inserting it into a metal frame.  Hope to see you there because it’s always more fun when you participate!
