I must be the only woman who names her machines male names! Haha. Al, is my Alliance. Sonny, is my Solaris. Tank, is my Tiara 2. I never named my Esante. All Babylock. 😎. I have a whole collection of boyfriends to hang out with in my sewing room! 💞😅

I have Elna Jean (Jeans by Elna), Miss Feather (my husband's grandmother's Featherweight) and Grandma T (treadle).

Yes, my Bernina 830 has a variety of cussy names.

Lulu is my Hello Kitty Janome. My longarm is Niki (it's a Nolting) and my Brother machines are Big brother and Little brother

I have Miss Pat-the Tiara, Bertha-my Featherweight, Big Bertha- the Brother Dream Machine, and Faithful-the Bernina Artista 635 ! Just got my decals to decorate them all, except for my Featherweight

I’ve got Cranky Clara, Rescued Rita and Thrifty Thelma.

I have two machines and both have names - Abby and Reba

Always best to do local; get a few referrals from hotel staff or even better, the folks in the quilt shops you visit!

Love local restaurants! Brown's Fish House, Paradise, Michigan. Best whitefish ever! Right next door to Village Fabrics and Crafts, a great quilt shop in northern Michigan.

Guilty

That’s so me!

That’s me & knitting/crocheting

been there, done that

Only one that's not finished?

I actually am working on 5 right now!

Amen to that

Too true

At least five... 😁

So true!!!

I have a "few" that are currently being worked on and "several" ideas floating around in my head. I love Facebook where i get to see that I'm not alone. 🦸‍♀️😁😊

That’s a good way to describe my sewing room. A MESS

I can make lots of messes with mine!

Taste the Experience. The old fashioned quilting bee has a strong association with food: the Potluck dinner.
The quilting bee was an extremely popular social event in the mid nineteenth century. The quilting bee provided a social space for women to gather and gossip while they simultaneously expressed their artistic capabilities. The quilting bee was often times held in a grange hall or a church vestry room which allowed for a maximum number of 12 women to attend. Often the number of guests was limited to seven, who, with the hostess, made up two quilting frames, the equivalent of two tables of bridge. Good quilting in earlier times was a social requisite, and it behooved the ambitious woman to be an expert with her needle.
Often several quilts were finished in a single session which lasted all day. These sessions ended with a supper of roast chicken or turkey. The men usually arrived in time for the feast, after which there followed singing and dancing. Like so many established rural customs--apple-paring bees, corn-husking contests, and barn raising parties--the traditional quilting bee party carried with it all the social amenities. The event marked the successful completion of many months of laborious handiwork. The painting, The Quilting Party shows the final sewing in place of the many blocks and friendship pieces of the quilt.

About Us
Hello! I am Holly Bayley and I own and operate the Gathering Stitches Quilt Shop. Julie Smith opened the shop in May 2012. I joined her in May 2015 and then bought the shop in September of that same year.

I moved to the Los Lunas area in 2014 with my husband and two teenagers. I’d been sewing off and on over the years, but it was the infectious enthusiasm and cheery "don't worry about that little mistake, no one will notice" attitude of a new friend that brought me fully into the wonderful world of quilting.

I have dabbled in different areas of the creative arts and crafts, but quilting really hit home. The variety of fabric is astonishing! The colors, designs, and patterns are so inspiring! But what to create? That’s the hardest part. Often I feel like a spread of fabric that’s caught my fancy doesn't really fit into any of the pre-designed quilt patterns—then I think: create your own! and that really fires my imagination.

But I'm still learning, and boy, do I have a long way to go. That's where the other aspect of quilting that I love comes in: the quilters. Such wonderful women (and even a few men) who are so ready to share their knowledge and expertise. What a wonderful community of quilters we have here!

I invite you to stop by and browse the fabrics or take a class. I’m looking forward to meeting you.
