• Right Foot First – Make Your Quilting Steps Rock

      quilting feet

      Successful quilts contain lots of ingredients and we’ve discovered having the right foot for the job is one of those ingredients. We’ve put together the list below to help you understand some of those choices. Most of us do not need to own all of these feet, but it’s a great idea to become familiar with what they can do for your quilting! You can certainly use a Standard foot (the one that comes on the machine) for piecing, but you will definitely need a special foot for the actual quilting process, such as an Even Feed foot and/or Darning foot. Many of our Janome machines include an even-feed foot, walking foot, and/or darning foot. Several models include the Acu-feed system as well which is a built-in feeding system that will knock your socks off!

    • Owning a Quilt Shop - a love story

      A question I get asked all the time is - "Why do you own a quilt shop?" Good question! It was and is the most unlikely series of events that has turned into a dream come true.

      My love of sewing goes way back to when I was 12 years old. I lived in Cedar Rapids, Iowa and decided that I wanted to learn how to sew . My Mom had a sewing machine and made me some clothes growing up, but her full time job kept her from having much time for sewing. Luckily, there was a sewing store that would let a 12 year old sign up for sewing classes! So I took 2 city buses each day across town and learned to sew (this was Iowa in the 70s where a 12 year old could ride a bus alone). I made clothes for me and other people and loved it - then it kind of became uncool at my school - so I stopped sewing....for 15 years - ack!

    • Quilts & Blankets - ASAP!

      Here in the Raleigh Area of North Carolina, we are blessed that the effects of Hurricane Sandy were a few gusty winds and rains. As we all know, our friends up the rest of the Eastern Seaboard did not fare as well as us. More cold weather is headed to an area that still has no power in some cases and to poor folks who have lost everything. Continue reading
