I can’t believe that ALT Design Summit is over and we are back home in Chicagoland, inspired! What a great, fun-filled event this was; meeting all the wonderful independent lifestyle bloggers, designers, true artists and adventurers, not to mention all the stylish fashionistas.
My campers love dogs. What could be better than their own dog pillows, to sleep with and to hold their pj’s? I used bright, leftover fabrics in all different colors, old buttons and my collection of colored zippers. They were constant companions all camp long!
My Owlivia Slouch Bag in Through the Needle ONLINE #15 uses all of the DesignWorks components plus embroidery. I have to admit that CrystalWork used is quickly becoming a favorite of mine – it’s quick and easy and I think every project needs just a little sparkle to make it pop. Don’t you?
Nancy Prince is hosting her first-ever quilting retreat in sunny Orlando, Florida, April 30-May 5, 2013. Spend four days thread-painting with Nancy, or bring your own project to work on. Don’t know what thread painting is? Instead of using a paintbrush and paint you’ll used your sewing machine needle (the “brush”) and thread (the “paint”).
It’s easy to make your own fabric Valentines using bits and pieces of fabric and quilt blocks. A wonderful, personally-crafted card from a crafty person to someone who knows you love fabrics and quilting. They will love it, and you will have saved $4 to $5 on a purchased card.
For the second year, BERNINA of America is one of the proud sponsors at ALT Design Summit and I am fortunate that I get to attend AGAIN.
