We are so excited to
announce the launch of our second edition of our eMag, Quilting Arts in
Stitches, that we’re going on tour this week. In our second edition of In
Stitches you’ll find a slew of information and inspiration for hand and machine
stitching including fun projects, video interviews with leading quilt artists
as they divulge their secrets and share their tips for perfect stitching,
how to create a stitch workbook to keep at your fingertips for inspiration and
reference, and so much more.
I thought to start off the
blog tour with a stitch confession. It wasn’t until recently that when I
free-motion stitch, I did what everyone should do, and that is to pull up the
bobbin thread when you begin. I guess I have just been lazy, but it’s so easy
(and so important) so you don’t have to worry about thread nests on the back.
Here’s a quick video I made to show you how to pull up the bobbin thread in
case you don’t know how:
Every blog tour should be
kicked off with a fun giveaway so here is mine. I have an extra DVD set of all
13 episodes of Quilting TV Series 700, which just started airing nationwide.
Respond to the following question by this Wednesday night, and on Thursday I’ll
announce a winner.
My question is two-part:
What is the most enjoyable
part of stitching for you? Conversely, what drives you crazy or proves
frustrating at times?
Here’s the blog tour schedule so you can follow along, hear
what these artists have to share about their stitching tips, and maybe partake
in more giveaways!
