Just a caution about your sewing machine needles⚠️. We are seeing quite a few machines coming in with problems caused by a budget brand of needles being sold at some department stores. These needles are made so poorly that they will actually cause your machine to not sew properly.
To demonstrate - the needle on the left is a Schmetz brand needle size 80 and on the right is the department store needle size 70. This size needle should be finer than the Schmetz, and as you can see, not only is it thicker, but it’s also longer😱! Other needles in the same department-store-pack are made backwards or are bent. Consumers are purchasing these needles in good faith, and then spending hours trying to find the cause of their sewing machine problem, all the while certain that it can’t be their machine needle because it’s a brand-new pack😤. And the worst part about this is that newbies to sewing, who are keen to get involved in this hobby that we all love so much, think that the problems that they are experiencing are caused by them doing something wrong, and with a hit to their confidence, they just give up🙄.
No matter if you have an enormous machine that you use every day, or a small one, that you get out every now and then, we recommend using brand-quality needles like Schmetz, that you can purchase from all good sewing stores. Share this post with your sewing friends ... See MoreSee Less

Road to California Quilt Show - 165 wall hangings of Prince. It would be fun to have gone, just to see all the creativity.
Cherrywood Hand-Dyed Fabric
The Prince Cherrywood Challenge
Cherrywood is a Hand Dyed Fabric business in Minnesota and sponsors art quilt challenges every year. Each of the 165 pieces of art (quilts) measure 20 inches. Everyone started out with the exact same purple fabrics from Cherrywood and then created their own original design inspired by the late, great Prince.
The display covers 90 feet of wall space. More information on where to see this amazing exhibit and order the keepsake book here- http://cherrywoodfabrics.bigcartel.com/prince

How true. I was talking with a woman that worked at a pharmacy. I was getting some ice packs to take on a retreat. She told me she collected fabric! She didn't know how to sew, just collected fabric. No time for lessons, just loved to collect fabric....

What is the very first thing you though of when you heard the theme for 2019 Row by Row, TASTE THE EXPERIENCE? ... See MoreSee Less
That I'm probably in trouble again this year!!
Local favorites, themes like fair foods, birthday party treats, etc. I just heard that the are groups of stores that get together to create rows that complement each other to make up a themed quilt. I would love to find some like that this year...
Not sure about this one ,sue Ritter what do you think?
I don't know I didn't hear what it was yet but I'm guessing???
