in Stitches vol. 6 Blog Tour Kick off (and a Giveaway!)

27 Feb 2012

I am so excited to share the latest issue of Quilting Arts in Stitches with all of you. Volume 6 is jam-packed with great free-motion tips, unique ways to incorporate stitching into your work (think 3D birds!), and even a bit of history about stitching. Without a doubt, this is the best issue yet, and I would encourage you to download it either from the Quilting Daily Shop or through iTunes on your iPad.

As another bonus, for the In Stitches VI blog tour we are giving away some free-motion tools at each spot. The tools are featured in an article entitled “show of hands” and were all taken out of their packaging for photography reasons, but are brand new!

For this post, I am giving away the nifty “Machingers Quilting Gloves” by Quilters Touch. To win, comment at the end of the blog letting me know what artcle you would like to see in a future In Stitches eMag.

Want to learn more about the in Stitches eMag before you purchase it? Join us on our in Stitches VI blog tour all this week (there will be a prize given away at every stop)! Here is the lineup of blogs:

I would like to see some ideas for embellishments foils, angelina fibers, what to do with sheer fabrics, like overlay' to make a bubble that you can see through.  Just some quick and easy things that the average quilter can do that will jazz up their quilts without having to go to a class to learn a new technique.  Oh yes, and any tips and such for the domestic sewing machine.

I enjoy the excerpts I've seen, but would need a computer upgrade before purchasing. And then maybe a few more hours in the day to view, dream and experiment!

I am becoming an avid consumer of all things quilt/surface design related.  But how to organize all the information and techniques I read about and see in all the media?  My head is stuffed but when I want to do something I don't remember which article or video or book I saw it in if it is anything more than three to four weeks old.  (hhmmmm, darn it, now where did I see/put that article on snow dyeing, or using dried tea bags, or.....? this is followed by much thrashing about online or through the most recent magazine/book pile.)  I mean what good is it if I can't find it?  Need information retrieval help!

Thank you for this information.  I have checked out the Web site of the contributers and it was an inspiring experience.  Good luck with the venture.

I would like to see an article about stitching on mixed media-- like through layers of papers and paint and canvas
