No Mess – Just Press

I love Mary Ellen’s Best Press so much that I buy it by the gallon. I have tried filling up a small container with my kitchen funnel with limited results. NOW there is a solution.

Spray Misting Bottle Funnel

My favorite part? The loop at the top allows you to store it right on the gallon jug! This is a great companion to their mister which holds a whopping 10 ounces.

The Story of American Cotton

Looking for the perfect Mother’s Day gift? Look no further. American Cotton – Farm to Quilt is that perfect combination of a shared passion with a great history lesson! Teresa Duryea Wong shares a fascinating story!

Full color pictures on all 180 pages has you turning each page in anticipation of the next! Learn how they grew – and present day grow – cotton. And, hear about the farmers who work the fields. Then follow the cotton as it goes to the mills. Teresa shares not only how the cloth is made – but how batting is made as well.

Last, but not least, she shares the stories of a few companies who are committed to producing quality cottons and fabrics again – all made in the USA.

This book is a true labor of love and a fascinating read!

Hope’s Journey

Hope’s Journey combines stories of quilters along with quilts and block patterns in a new and exciting way. The cover quilt combines many of these patterns into what I call an orphan block quilt.

Betsy Chutchian combines 28 block patterns in a variety of sizes to create these puzzle-piece style sampler quilts. She actually combines four different layouts to make it even easier.

Each chapter includes stories of pioneer women who were on a journey to find a better life. Along the way, Betsy has shared 11 small quilts that would be spectacular additions to the decor of a bedroom featuring the cover quilt. Here is just a sampling of the “littles”….

Can you imagine sleeping every night surrounded by such beauty?

Journal your Quilt Projects

These are the latest journals from It Takes Two and would be the perfect centerpiece for a Valentine’s Day display.

Quilts of Valor – an Inspiration

What an inspirational story!

In their own words: When the Quilts of Valor Foundation was founded in 2003, its mission was to cover our nation’s military touched by war—that is, to cover them with quilts and honor their service. A volunteer team donate their time and materials to make a quilt collaboratively. Since its beginning, this all-volunteer organization with close to 8,000 members nationwide has awarded more than 200,000 Quilts of Valor. This book explains the history of military quilts since our nation’s beginning, and features a Quilt of Valor to represent each of our 50 states. Also included are 16 quilt patterns to choose from, to inspire you to make your own Quilt of Valor. The organization’s Under Our Wings project, which brings young people into Quilts of Valor and encourages them to learn to sew, is featured, too.

Quilters are truly amazing! Pat yourselves on the back – and order a copy for everyone one of those volunteers who participate!

Featherweight Lovers will LOVE this!

As I travel around the country, I see more and more Featherweight Clubs. Everyone in the club will want these!

Sew Steady now makes a table just for Featherweights. This classic table measures  18 x 23 inches. The black acrylic table is made exclusively for the Black Singer Featherweight 221k Machine. It even includes a gold printed 16-inch metric ruler and rounded front edge.

This featherweight 221 manual tells the history of the sewing machine, how to date your machine, and how to troubleshoot simple mechanical issues.

And then there is this gorgeous embroidery pattern by Crabapple Hill. What featherweight owner wouldn’t love this???
