  For my 2017 sewing challenge, I am exploring garment sewing. After January’s Linden sweatshirt, I decided I wanted to build upon my skills in a more solid way. I didn’t want to sew up patterns, potentially struggle with fit and then be done. I wanted to fully dive into the subject. (Anyone else like this!?!) Starting in the middle of February, I ...

My dear friend gave birth to her baby boy, Benjamin! The fantastic part of having a scheduled cesarean procedure is the ability to schedule the baby’s arrival. It *should* mean that your friends have plenty of time to finalize your gifts… in theory! After debating several different quilt blocks and colors, I felt such pressure to make something as special ...

As I come across ways for us as makers to support our community, I will share them on the blog. My first exploration into how to “make a difference” came from Jeanne Hewell Chambers. When she contacted me about her 70273 Project and I was immediately intriqued. As much of our collective history seems to be lost in the rhetoric ...
