Don't feel the burn!

clock December 15, 2016 04:19 by author Ruth

How many of you have had to blow on hot fingers or wave your hands madly to cool the burn when ironing?  Maybe it's just me, but when I'm pressing narrow hems or many quilt pieces at a time, my ironing board gets so hot it's hard to keep going.  Well!  I have found the perfect solution to keep the production going... 

 

These finger guards are heat resistant to 400 degrees and protect any size finger.  You may want to stop in to Quilt N Go soon to pick up your very own.   On Monday, I will be sharing a quick gift idea and these little goodies are going to come in handy!

What's under your needle today?  Happy stitching!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 



A Little Bit of Heaven

clock December 12, 2016 03:51 by author Ruth

Last week, I had three quilts to bind.  The total length was about a million miles.  Okay, that might be a slight exaggeration, but it felt like it!  My hands were getting tired after the first side of the first quilt, but I remembered a little box of Thread Heaven I had purchased in October. 

The packaging claimed to make the thread glide easier, reduce hand fatigue and fraying/tangling of the thread.  What a better time to try this little box of magic. 

Thread Heaven is thread conditioner and protectant which makes the thread smooth and slick, reducing thread drag.  After binding 1,012 inches, this little box of pure heaven made my job much easier! 

Stop in to Quilt N Go and pick up this awesome product!  What products have you tried that make the binding process easier?

QNG New Employee

clock October 14, 2016 10:31 by author Ruth

My name is Melinda Anstead and I am pleased to be working at Quilt ‘N Go as a sales clerk.  I started sewing as a young girl and my first formal classes were at the high school during the summer between 7th and 8th grade.  All through high school, I made my own uniforms and dresses.  My skills were put to use later making clothing for my five daughters.  My only son was treated to one-of-a-kind boxer shorts!

 

My interest in quilting started over 30 years ago and I bought a few books and saved all the free patterns I could find.  My first quilt was a patchwork of scraps I had saved from years of making clothes.  My oldest daughter, who was about 12 at the time, helped with the project and her daughter still has the quilt all these years later. 

 

When my husband and I moved to Vicksburg just over five years ago, my goal was to finally learn “real” quilting.  I took a few lessons to learn the tips and techniques I needed and before long, I had made some beautiful quilts.  I was able to purchase a longarm machine a few years ago and my love of quilting grew to a new level. You can bring your quilts to me at QNG.

 

Learning to quilt had been a dream for so long and now it is my reality.  I’ve been able to be involved in a charity project by helping to complete quilts, as well as make many quilts for my family.  I have met some wonderful quilters and friends who share my passion and I look forward to many, many years of quilting.
