Start saving your pennies (well, we don't have pennies anymore in Canada, so save your nickels) and mark your calendars for June 15 to 18 next year. It's in Toronto and I promise you it will be a great quilting event to attend!
Are you tired of hearing about (but not seeing) my scrap squad quilt? The big reveal is next week, so only a couple more days to wait.
I have been machine quilting this week, using a large stipple design. It's going to be a sofa quilt, and will be well used, so I'm not doing anything fancy for the quilting. Almost done.
Another exciting thing happening today is that I am on my way to Michigan to learn how to convert an electric sewing machine to a people powered sewing machine. This is something I have wanted to learn for so long, and now I have the opportunity to do it! Carpe Diem, right?
This is my 1920's Federation treadle head machine that I am converting to a hand crank machine. I am also taking another machine to convert. The "how to" instructions are here, but are a little hard for me to understand, so now is my chance to learn from the Treadle On experts in person.
Stay tuned for a report when I get back from this whirlwind trip...
