    New Iron

    Thanks everyone. Went with a Rowentas.
  4. Has anyone used Gutermann thread from Joann's? I got in a bind last week because I needed a specific color and bought a cone. With coupon it was less than $3. It worked great. I am not one to use low quality supplies so I want your opinions. It was poly thread and went on a wall hanging it would not be sat on...so I went for it. Thanks Don

    Posting Photos

    6 Months of Quilting

    Really two snow days, but it represents six months. We have a customer that likes small wall hangings. Each is 12" square.

    How do you handle this?

    We bought cheep curtain rods but they bent a little over time so I bought 2 foot long 1"x2" 's at Home Depot and duct taped them to the curtain rods and they work great.

    Snow dyeing fabric

    Kathy, have you ever over dyed a piece that didn't turn out. One of ours that we intended for a specific quilt back is not as dark as we would like so we erector thinking about trying to dye it again. What do you think?

    Snow dyeing fabric

    Kathy, when you pre soak in soda ash...what is the water to soda ash ratio you use? Have you ever used the dye that was left in the tub after snow dyeing to dye coordinating fabric by immersion? Thanks Don

    Snow dyeing fabric

    Got it in the washer with Retain now....can't wait to see what we have when it comes out of the dryer. Tonilyn. We used Procion dyes from Darma Trading Company. Kathy's link at the beginning of this post is a great place to start. It has been a lot of fun for my wife and I.

    Snow dyeing fabric

    After a long winters nap...snow is still melting and fabric is peeking out enough to make us run to the studio every 20 or so minutes to see what's happening.
