The Knowing in Sewing Newsletter

Hi Everyone,
I just sent out the newsletter.  I meant to send it the last day of August, but I thought that was Tuesday.  LOL.  Got my dates mixed up somehow.  Anyway, if you are signed up for the newsletter, it should be in your inbox.  That's it for now...have to get back to writing.  Have a wonderful Labor Day!

Happy 4th of July

I hope the weather is much better where you are than where I am right now.  We are having a lot of rain.  Bummer for the 4th of July, right?  I received a notification from Craftsy today that there is a sale going on this weekend with classes starting at 19.99. 


I have been working on samples lately with a tight deadline, so I have been very quiet on all social media.  I have kind of disconnected with the net so no shiny things could distract me.  While working on the samples, I found another use for Sullivan's Spray Stabilizer ( I am not affiliated with them in any way so this is an unbiased opinion).  I was working with burlap,  I don't know if you have ever had the pleasure of working with this fabric, but it is a bear.  The Sullivan's tame's the bear!  Before I put it on, it was moving all over the place and couldn't cut a straight line to save my life.  After the Sullivan's was sprayed on and ironed in, I gained control of the fabric.  It was great!  So besides using it for the Scan N Cut, I like using it with difficult to control fabric. 

Have a great 4th!

Last Day of Craftsy's Make Magic Sale

I remember when I started embroidering....what challenges there were. We didn't have the internet to learn from, no YouTube videos or anything. The only stabilizer and thread that we could get for the Home market was Sulky thread and at $4 a spool (and a small spool at that) we would use every last morsel of the thread It was totally overwhelming. My how things have changed....We now have stabilizers and embroidery needles for almost every fabric and yes they do make a difference. A variety of thread with more than 300M on them and a world of knowledge at our fingertips on the computer.
I was browsing Craftsy today to see what classes I would want to take if i were new to embroidery. I came across one that I think would be perfect for everyone because it is so crucial for getting good results.
I really think this is a must for an embroiderer. It is amazing how much of a difference the appropriate stabilizer and thread combinations in your embroidery make in your finished projects.
With Craftsy's Make Magic Sale, Start something your loved ones will remember forever. It's easier than you think to get the results you deserve. Give it a try and help to support our crafting habit:Craftsy's Make Magic Sale
