Hello Friends, it’s Tuesday again! I hope you had a great start to your week. It’s been a busy sort of week, but I did manage to get Scissors & Spools pattern listed in my shop.
Scissors & Spools is a Layer Cake (10″ Squares)-Friendly pattern. The quilt finishes at 46″ x 61″. Click here to purchase the pattern in PDF format. Or, if you prefer the paper format, Fat Quarter Shop has them.
Did you know this past Sunday was National Sewing Machine Day?
I am often asked what machine I use — I am a Bernina girl, from the very beginning.
But here are my 2-cents on purchasing a sewing machine:
Always test out a machine at a local dealer before you make the purchase. While you are at the dealer, ask as many questions as you can think of! Sometimes, ALL your sewing needs might be met in a mid level model instead of the schnazziest model.
BUT a friendly note of caution – in purchasing a sewing machine, just know that the machine will determine the level of sewing enjoyment. If you end up getting a machine with which you constantly fight, you won’t enjoy sewing as much as if you had gotten a machine that is more collaborative!
It’s your turn to share your 2-cents on purchasing a sewing machine!
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you have a lovely rest of your week!
