Here is a class you must take! I am hooked on July Niemeyer patterns and you will be too… This table runner is 16” x 40 “ beautiful in batiks but can also be done in other fabric. In the pattern is enough pattern paper to make 4 table runners, “One for All Seasons”. This is a foundation paper piecing pattern, it looks difficult but I promise you it is very easy to do and you will be hooked after this class. The class will be in two sessions the first on Saturday, April 27, 2013 from 10am – 3 pm, the second session will be on Saturday, May 11, 2013. The first session you will learn the technique and assemble the two basic sections to this star pattern. Then the second session you will put it all together. Come and join us to learn this fun way to do foundation paper piecing.

Have you tried the new Frixion pens for marking? Bold marking ink that completely removes with heat and the friction tip with no residue. Great for marking patterns and lines. No smudging or fading. These are great for marking quilting lines and not having to get the quilt wet to remove your lines.
Another new product that is in our top ten favorites is Heat Press Batting Together This products makes using up your scraps of batting much easier that zigzagging the pieces together. Check out the video at the bottom of this email in the tutorials.
