Modern Sewciety Podcast


Recently I sat down and had a nice long chat with Stephanie, creator of the Modern Sewciety Podcast. The minute I heard Stephanie’s Southern drawl, I knew I’d like her. We talk about a lot of things, my former career in the apparel design industry (which seems more and more glamorous the longer I’m away from it), my passion for using special fabrics in quilts, my love of color, and my upcoming class Dream, Learn, Quilt.

Aurifil thread giveaway

Aurifil quilting thread giveaway!

Aurifil thread giveaway

I am giving away a collection of my very favorite thread, Aurifil 50wt cotton thread from Italy!

I use Aurifil thread for all of my quilting needs, and it is the quilting thread I recommend in my upcoming ecourse. I’m also very proud to be an Aurifil Artisan.

This thread is thin, strong and sews like a dream. The collection I am giving away is curated by Christa Quilts, and is an excellent selection of basics to get you started on your patchwork sewing, or add to what you already have.

I have the collection above ready to mail out and will announce the winner this Friday, August 18th.

That’s it! I will announce the winner on Friday! Good luck!

HandStitched Stitch along

Starting the week of September 18

Let’s face facts, Summer is winding down. It is kind of bittersweet, I know. But I can’t say I’m not ready for a little more routine around here.

What about you?

The biggest news here is that my daughter is leaving for college in a few days. She’ll be about five hours away. Not a terribly long distance, but far enough! We have bins to pack, sheets and towels to buy, dorm rooms to decorate, and you know what that means?READ MORE
