Below is a complete guide and list of tips to making quilt donations. Written in a similar style to our list of longarm quilters, I've put together a comprehensive list of charities and organizations that would love your handmade quilts.
Remember when our house was just a house? You were there. Cupboards stayed shut, and food stayed on the shelves, and power outlets were helpful dispensers of electricity for my lovely, intact floor lamps? It was great, wasn’t it?
Today on the blog I have a foolproof 4-step guide that will help you plan your quilts this year. Planning and list-making is not my natural instinct. I'm usually more of a "go with the flow and see where the day takes me" kind of person.
I know I have talked to you about a lot of my weird relationships, but there has never been a more complicated one than my relationship with my umbrella.
Let me start with our history together.
It was love at first sight.
Before I sift through my pile of unfinished sewing projects to give you 3 steps to finish your WIPs, indulge me with one quick story. The year was 2007. I was 21. Although I wasn’t overly ambitious in my studies, I did have one special skill – I said yes to almost everything.
Ok, SQ readers. It’s happening again. I’m re-opening my diary and letting you take a peek. If you missed my confession about Baking Shows and need to take a minute to empathize with my obsession, go ahead. I’ll wait. But when you come back, get ready to dive with me real deep… into my shoe closet.
If you’re a crafter of any kind – knitting, sewing, quilting, pottery, woodworking, underwater basket weaving – you have probably received some awkward compliments. Maybe someone has even said, “That's so pretty, I can't even tell it's handmade!”
Hmmm...compliment? When hearing that, it’s easy to get offended, or defensive, or downright annoyed.
I think it’s time to take our relationship to the next level, so periodically, I’m going to give you an inside peek at my diary.
