Hope this finds you doing great. I have been busy finishing some quilts for my clients and dealing with family stuff. There have been several posts on Facebook the last few weeks that I saved to share with you. Since not everyone is on Facebook and, of course, not everyone who is on gets the same feeds so I like to share good information that I see so everyone can benefit.
Jenny Lyon of Quilt Skipper has posted several things that have been great information.
One of the recent items from Jenny is a post discussing Frixion pens and the good and bad points to them. I had heard about the issues of “Ghost Marks” with these pens from other quilters and a few instructors but her post does a fantastic job of explaining exactly what the issues are so you can decide for yourself when it is appropriate to use them and when it is not. Check out her post at
Jenny’s other post is one on choosing the right sewing machine for you. She owns Bernina’s which I never have but her suggestions on what you should be thinking of mirror many things I have said before and are worth hearing again. Check out this post at
Urban Threads posts on Facebook have some great suggestion on doing embroideries that I can’t wait to use. One was on embroidering on pockets and one was embroidering on sleeves. Check out these great videos.
Even if you think you know how to do something it is always great to watch a video done by someone else. You can pick up all kinds of tips and ideas you may not have heard of or thought about before that you can use to help you in the future.
Hope you all enjoy these extra posts and come away with a little more information and a fewer questions.
Have a great week. I am planning on working on Conor’s quilt this week so hopefully I will be able to show you some updated photos by the weekend. Take care and have a great week.
