Visit with national featured quilter, Teresa Silva, and local featured quilter, Cathy Wiese.

Tips and Tricks:

     *Difficulty threading your sewing machine needle?  Moisten the eye of the needle rather than the thread.

     *Washing small pieces of fabric?  Try using your salad spinner to help reduce the fraying you get when using the wash machine.  Start with hot water and soap, spin a few times, then drain.  Fill with cook water, spin again to rinse, drain water and spin again to remove as much water as possible, then iron dry.  

     *To keep applique stems from shifting while hand stitching, pin over the stems rather than through.  

And that"s all Y'all!  Questions?  Comments?  Concerns?  Ask me!
