Lori Kennedy On Understanding Thread Weight!

If you want to learn how to make beautiful quilts with your long arm machine or your domestic machine, this is the place to go. Lori has helped me so much master techniques. I love the spool of thread I place in all my quilts. I can not draw anything but for some reason when I use Lori’s techniques and my machine it takes on a new life.

Thanks, Lori!

Be sure to subscribe to her emails. You will get awesome tips and step by step instructions!

You Are Never Too Old To Learn. I Have Been Using My Whales The Wrong Way!

Duckbill  scissors.  I love them.. However after watching this video I realize I have been using them the wrong way forever.  I can not get a close cut, but now I can!

I call them “Whales” They remind me of a whale.

This video I got off You Tube. It belongs to Inspired to Sew.  I can not thank the lady enough.. now I will not mind trimming my appliqué.
