It’s been a very busy two weeks…dealing with the usual life interruptions plus preparing for, then entertaining, and then wrapping up after company last weekend. But I did squeeze in some quilty indulgences along the way. Last Thursday our local quilt club sponsored a workshop with a Sulky representative. I was delighted to be exposed to some new-to-me techniques that can be done on my Janome sewing machine. I always assumed that I would need a true embroidery machine to do some of the applications we played with. Unfortunately, I don’t have any photos of those, but the workshop included a package of goodies including these Sulky threads that I will enjoy using.
I never know what off-the-wall tips I’ll get when I go to these events. The tables we had to set our machines on were a little too high for comfortable work. Here is the solution one of my classmates came up with...of course then my feet didn't want to touch the floor, but I could at least see what I was sewing.
