I'm sitting down with International Quilt Museum curator Carolyn Ducey tomorrow (Sunday, January 16) at 3:00 ET to discuss the work and life of feminist quilter, writer, teacher, and fiber artist Jean Ray Laury. It's free on YouTube! The show is a series hosted by the American Quilt Study Group and sponsored by Quiltfolk. We're opening the conversation with Barefoot and Pregnant, a quilt made by Jean Ray Laury in 1987. I hope you'll join us LIVE! Or at least catch it later on YouTube.
Here's quick video PACKED with tips about how to bury your threads after machine quilting, as well as a review of what tools I use and why. Happy Quiting! ~Tara
I had SO much fun joining Lynn and Pam on Friday for their once-a-month Virtual Stitch-In! These ladies are full of talent, kindness, good humor, and integrity. I'm happy to count them among my friends. Doesn't hurt that they make super fun quilt patterns, either. Grab yourself some hand sewing and a cat (or 3), and have a sit down to watch and get to know us.... They share great tips and tricks in their regular quilting talk show, and it's always chill at The Stitch. On the Calendar! September 3rd > I'm speaking with the Allatoona Quilters' Guild! They meet at the Roberts School in Acworth, GA at 10:00 am. September 6th > I'll be hanging out...Read More
Hiya! Last weekend I shared on Instagram that I was reorganizing my sewing room/studio and folding my fabric onto comic book boards. Several of you asked to see a video, so here it is! I hope you find it helpful. (p.s. that delicious fabric is St. John by Jennifer Paganelli for FreeSpirit Fabrics) xoxo, ~Tara
