Easy to find selvage information
In the workshop, we press and fold our fabric so that the selvage shows and is easy to locate. The selvage has all sorts of important information often including the designer's name, mill house, and color information. If we need to know something about the fabric, it's easy to see!
Pretty candies in no time!
Pretty candies can be made quickly by simply dipping the ends of peppermint sticks into melted white chocolate...lay out on wax paper and sprinkle with colorful sugar! Allow to harden and place in a vintage glass jar...a wonderful gift in no time!
An accurate 1/4-inch seam allowance is essential for quilting! An ordinary index card will help you find the correct allowance since the lines are 1/4-inch apart--stitch the line and adjust as necessary!
A Brand New Needle
Every new quilt deserves a new needle! Replace your machine needle at the start of each new quilt.
A Happy Quilt Back
The best quilt back is a happy quilt back where the threads are neatly trimmed and the seams are neatly pressed.
Instant Holiday Treats
Nothing is more festive than striped candies. Place peppermints in pretty little dishes throughout the house for your guests to enjoy!
