Mystery needles…

Kristina asked me to talk about needles in Time Out and that’s what I did yesterday, May 19. Here it is, in case you missed it. (If there is something you would like me to talk about in time out, send me an email.

Martha Bigley commented to remind me that the needles shown in the Needle Guide are life-size. That is really helpful and I wish I had mentioned that in the video. I will add, though, that needles vary in thickness and length from company to company which means that your mystery needles may not match those in the guide. But it definitely does point you in the right direction!

3 ways to make easy applique templates…

On Wednesday’s Time Out, I showed 3 ways to make templates using peel and stick laminate, freezer paper, and heavy duty freezer paper. The templates are different enough from each other that you may use all of them in different situations.

Happy stitching!
