Quilted Paper Mat and Last Day to get on the catalog list

We hosted customers for a special edition of Black Friday presentations in a private Facebook group. Did you join us? All demonstrations, posts about tips and tricks are available for viewing from the comfort of your cozy stamp space. Ask me how to join the group if you missed the live day.

I created a quilted paper mat during one of my presentations in the group. My stack of 1 inch square pattern paper was piling up. So making a quilt square seemed to be the easiest way to reduce the pile and share the fun patterns.

I will be finalizing my order for the Spring and Sale-a-bration brochures this weekend. Make sure you are on the list to receive your copies from me by placing an order as directed below. Click the image below if your order is under $150 so you are linked to host VBFMJN42. (THE IMAGE INCORRECTLY LISTS AN OLD HOST CODE). If your order is over $150, remove the code while in the online store so you can enjoy all the host rewards yourself. Make sure to remain shopping with me if your order is over $150 so I can include you on my catalog list.

Here is a link to the my Youtube video showing how to create the quilted mat and greeting card.

Thanks again for supporting my small business!

Quilt Supplies for Summer Camp

Hello Paper Crafting Friends! I have a quilter friend, Dawn, that is looking for quilting donations for a summer camp. Here is a little bit about the camp in her words.

Each summer I volunteer at the Episcopal church camp in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota. Two years ago, I started a sewing club to teach the young campers how to sew and provide them the opportunity to involve themselves in a service project. Over 80% of our campers live at or near the poverty level on the reservations of South Dakota. Part of my vision for this endeavor was to teach that no matter our means, we always have the ability to help others.

Our campers in grades five and six make pillow cases to donate to the children’s ward at local hospitals. The campers grades 7-12 make dresses for the Little Dresses for Africa project. Once their service gift is complete, we bring out the scrap box and they create, create, create!

Dawn is looking for the following donations since she sponsors all the supplies used in this program:

at least 24 inches cotton fabric, any pattern
double fold bias tape, at least 1 yard, any color
kid print cotton for pillowcases
any fabric scraps
polyfil in any size for pillow stuffing
portable sewing machines (your older model perhaps?)

Dawn returns to South Dakota a few times a year in her car so will take donations throughout the year. I will be seeing Dawn at my next weekend retreat which is October 19th in Poynette. If you can drop off donations to me before then, I can bring it to her at the retreat. Or you can stop during that weekend at the retreat if you want to tour the space and meet Dawn.

If you are cleaning out your fabric stash or know of someone that is, please pass this information to them. Dawn would also like to send sewing machines home with campers that express continued interest in sewing. So if you donate a sewing machine, it may be used during camp session or be re-homed where it will be used for many years to come!

Thanks for your help with carrying on the quilting tradition!

This is Portia. Dawn’s daughter that runs the camp.
