What level quilter / sewist do you consider yourself?

Doctorate in U.F.O. with a dx of fabricholic. Self treating. I may never recover..... ๐Ÿ˜†

A couple years ago I taught quilting at a senior center. One 84 yr old asked if she could join. But not do any new quilts. She had 4 left in her closet she needed to get done before she passed on. ๐Ÿ˜ข last I heard, she got them done. She is probably 91 now.

Many quilters fall into this category. I have 14 or 15 Ufo's (Unfiinished Fabric Objects.) I really want to get to quilting again so that I can finish few. I have so many kits that hve not even been started. A few of mine are nearly finished.

Debra Buist, Debra Eberspeaker, Karen Jerry Bruin lol

So true!

More and more shops haven’t seen the value ...

Lot of shops not doing it this year.I think with gas prices .also kits are too pricey.too much of laser blocks .it's to help small shops but nothing to bring you back to their shop.as some are really far away and most are just going to get the patter as spent their money to get to the shop

I really am sorry that not all carry license plates- could you pleas indicate whether a store does on your website? We tend to only visit the stores that do.

This is a lie. I will plan more projects, cut out half of them and sew 3. I will finish one ufo... from the 90s

Spent the day sorting through my stash, and found projects that my mother had started over 20 years ago!

Found fabric with a cut slip dated 12/17/05 today when I was sorting my stash.

I totally understand this, but have a hard time explaining it to the non-sewing members of my family.

It goes back much farther than that!

I do have Row By Row to finish!

So true, can we do it?

So true, just organized all that stuff too. Trying to get caught up before row by row 2019 is released

I’m one of those also but it’s fun to find all the old stuff and work on them.

omg someone has been looking over my shoulder

As crazy as that sounds, I can relate to it perfectly!

Hahhaha! I have a stack of UFOs, but only ONE is on my finish list because it's my own design and I'm writing a pattern.

I haven’t even retired yet! Lol

I totally want to make this my resolution too!

That's the way to go Pat

Yeah right koko, you too????

You didn't have to remind me!!!!!

This is me upto2015 I started in2015!!!

Tsk tsk ......I'm in the same boat ......can even go back farther.....

You have been living my life!!!

Dream big!..I'm still working through my stash acquired before I retired from Fabricland 15 yrs ago!

Deb, I don’t see any urgency here.

Sounds about right to me!! ๐Ÿ˜‚

Good to know I am not alone in this "opportunity".

I am most certainly not alone. I did buy notably less in 2018.

Sew a block. Realize it is wrong. Rip out. Install incorrectly again. After the third rip, realize it was correct the entire time. Sigh.

before I wind a bobbin ... I mark the thread with a marker ... when I see the color change I know I am running out of thread ...

Couldn't find something where i literally JUST put it. Apparently not.....sigh...

Bernina, baby!!! M size bobbins are amazeballs!

My husband is admittedly a better quilter than I am, but still, he came in my sewing room to inspect my quilt that I had been working on for a week and took 19 of 20 blocks and ripped them apart leaving me to start all over again because I had some stitches that were uneven. Only one block survived the massacre. I had tried to make the quilt when he wasn't home and kept the blocks hidden, out of sight, but he caught me in the act of completing the final block. He's a perfectionist, I'm a "looks good to me." Yet, if we can make it until January 18th we will have been married 44 years. I am, however, seriously considering changing my hobby of quilting to something else. Something more solitary and forgiving.

I spent too many days in a row without being able to sew.

Or a machine that beeps when you’re bobbin is almost empty!๐Ÿ˜ฒ

Ripped A LOT of blocks apart thinking they were wrong...only to find they were made correctly.

BOTH of my machines are in the shop! Okay, I love to hand piece, but seriously, BOTH machines! ๐Ÿ™„

My Feed Dogs are Too Far Apart !~!!

The monofilament thread keeps breaking ๐Ÿ˜•

I agree

My house is for sale and since people can’t seem to realize my sewing room could also be a bedroom, I packed up my sewing stuff and put a bed in there so my sewing is on hold-not for long, I hope ๐Ÿ˜Š

I want to sew and life got in the way!

The bobbin ran out

The needle breaks because the thread gets wrapped around something it shouldn't and then you can't find all the needle pieces!!!

Bernina's nearly do...nearly!

Someone used my Ginger fabric scissors โœ‚๏ธ on a non Africa item!!! That is a no-no!!

Ouch

My sentiments exactly.

They make them but they are the industrial machine only do one type of stich

They did, way back when . It was called a National Two Spool. The bobbin case was a little can that a spool of thread dropped into. You started with the same size thread spool at the top of the machine as in the can and if they are both new.....never run out at the bottom until you run out at the top. Cool, huh?? It used the little wooden spools. Its a great treadle machine.

the fabric scissors went missing AGAIN.

Oh no. Check on chipper

Home Depot for power tools. Too bad they don’t sell sewing machines.

Wherever they sell koala sewing furniture!

Mabelenas in Ortonville!!

The Quilt Patch, Tecumseh, Michigan.

Tough choice. I feel like I should pick my favorite quilt shop, Delphine's Quilt Shop, but I'm afraid the truth is I'd be going to my favorite music store, Elderly Instruments.

Buy a new sewing machine.

Sew What Quilt Shop, Wyandotte, MI!

Missouri Star Quilt Shop

A furniture store! Forty years ago it would have been jewelry or clothing. LOL

Anywhere but a fabric store. I have enough to sew for two lifetimes.

Leabu sewing in Ann Arbor for half down on my multi-needle machine

Ikea for full wall shelves

Quilt store and buy a long arm

A Brother machine dealer Scan and Cut for Paper Crafting New sewing machine And all necessary accessories

Thrift store. I could get amazing amounts of wool or cotton linens and garments there to recycle into quilts. And the money would go to a good cause.

I would go to pfaff sewing machine companyand get a long arm machine with accessories

A bank to buy a prepaid Visa.

Considering we are 4 hrs from our Texas winter home that has been totaled out due to a split pipe it would be a furniture store in Brownsville

Cs sewing for a sweet machine. Hopefully I could decide in 30 minutes๐Ÿค”

I did not read who this came from and thought Home Depot but now sewing--a new machine would be real sweet.

To a fabric store, of course! :-)

Goodwill or a similar store to buy clothing for people who are freezing this winter.....

Smith Owens on Plainfield in Grand Rapids

quilt shop with all my friends.
