Brief Site Description:
We intend to provide USEFUL quilting info on our site. Not just "fluff". There will be NO FABRIC FOR SALE on this site (except pre-cut or packaged kits). If you need fabric, notions, or books, then click on the Connecting Threads buttons and go there to purchase everything, and you'll help us pay the rent here, ok? We are a "down-to-earth" kind of site with no frills. We try to avoid any trips to the local supermart for special tools or gizmos. And we want to provide "user friendly" patterns and designs for you. We'll have as much FREE STUFF as possible, without a lot of banner ads blinking at you.
A brief description of what you will find in each category listed on the left buttons:
The newsletter is updated occasionally and is not available by subscription. Check back on the first of each month to see if it is updated. It includes what's new on this site, and any other ramblings and pictures I find newsworthy to you. It goes without saying this is me exercising my right of freedom of quilting speech. You may or may not agree with content. I don't expound on politics or religion. I just ramble.
I've included a gallery of a few of my own quilts just to let you know and prove to you that maybe I know what I'm doing. But you know, NOBODY KNOWS EVERYTHING! Especially when it comes to designing patterns, so feel free to point out my mistakes. It won't hurt my feelings, and might help someone else avoid trouble. I have been quilting for at least 25 years or so, but who counts really. I have had some experience in running a storefront business selling quilts here locally, have judged a few quilt shows, stopped counting the number of quilts I've made a long time ago around 2 or 3000, co-owned a quilt shop and machine quilting business, and on and on. But I wanted to keep this brief. Now quickly......
Recently we have added a Guest Gallery to allow our fans to "show off"!
The Free Block of the Month Project will be something I hope everyone will enjoy. We will have a new project every year. We will provide one block pattern of that project each month. And if you can't wait that long to finish, you can order the entire pattern (on the pattern page) all at once for a small fee! And again, we are not selling the fabric to make these quilts, just the pattern. You go get your own fabric, ok? Or use our link to Connecting Threads. com to shop for fabric.
The Patterns category is where you view and order your patterns, ok? Order something!
The Miscellaneous 4 Sale category will include pieced tops, finished quilts, any item not tied down or walking.
The Quilt Shops Only category is just that---for shops only! Wholesale information concerning ordering, trunk shows, and available mystery patterns for store owners and established guilds are there.
The Links page has all my favorite places to waste time on the net. Of course, it's not really a waste, but seems like minutes waste into hours or days sometimes when I go to them. Before I know it, the sun is coming up!
The Ordering Information Page: You can print out your MAIL ORDER form there.
If you go nowhere else, you've GOT to click on Ask Granny. Quilters are known for their sense of humor (well, at least SOME of them), and this page is for them.
Now, fix your first cup of coffee, .....sit back....
