Sustainability has become increasingly important and we've all been learning more about protecting the environment. As quilters, we all use different kinds of fibers sourced naturally from the earth—fabric made from cotton or flax, batting made of wool, silk, or bamboo, and tools made of wood.
Knots. Tangles. Fraying. Breakage. UGH! These are the most frustrating things that can happen while hand sewing. What can you do to prevent them? Use thread conditioner! Most thread conditioners are made with all-natural beeswax, and while using it or not is an optional and personal choice, this handy little notion has many benefits.
Supporting our communities and giving back is at the heart of what we do at Suzy Quilts. We've been donating to a wide array of nonprofits since 2020 and this year we aren't only fundraising—we're friend-raising!
That means we're supporting these nonprofits through a financial donation and doing our best to get the word out about the great things they are doing.
Giving back to our communities is a core value here at Suzy Quilts. Our team has close connections to nonprofits and we have been actively supporting nonprofit organizations financially since the beginning of 2020. We want to make giving back easy for you, too!
