Let’s Make A Serger Christmas Ornament - Christmas is my absolute favorite time of the year.

Working with Twin Needles - There are so many tools that come with our sewing machines these days, have you used every single one of them?
AccuQuilt GoMe! - Do you AccuQuilt? That is the tag line I see on so many AccuQuilt ads and I totally get it now! I’m kind of a new AccuQuilt convert…. Recently, I have been appreciating the speed and accuracy of cutting on this wonderful machine and I am really getting the hang of figuring out which die I can use to cut out my quilts.

Sewing Machines for Beginners - It’s never too late, or too early, to introduce people to our beautiful craft. I started sewing at the age of four on my great grandmothers treadle machine.
