  • 100th Blog Post & Happy New Year!

    Not only are we celebrating a new year, but also coincidentally this is our 100th post here on the Quilting Arts blog! I never thought I’d have the perseverance to make it to 100 blog entries.  Case in point: the fact that I have one diary I got in the ‘70s, and it’s the only diary I have written...

  • Post-partum Quilt Show Disorder & a Giveaway!

    Ever since I returned home from Houston, I've been suffering from what I dub PPQSD: post-partum quilt show disorder. I'm home from the show I look forward to most every year, and now I'm back in my sleepy, bucolic town of Stow, MA. Quilt show season is officially over, and it's time to...

  • Tricks and Treats

    What's that saying: When the cat's away the mice will play? My husband's been out of town for the past week, and while he was gone, play I did… A few things have been on my mind lately: my beautiful hometown of San Francisco, the Grateful Dead (who have a new CD set out ), and of course Halloween...

  • Thermofax Screen Printing

    A sample of my hand-dyed and screen-printed fabrics. What would you do if you had a month off and could do any one activity? If I could take this kind of time, I'd scamper off to some secret destination (preferably a small creekside cottage in Sedona), and shlep plenty of Procion dyes, Jacquard and...

  • Studio Space

    For all of you Project Runway fanatics, you may have been surprised by the size of Christian Siriano's studio when Tim Gunn paid him a visit on last week's episode. Upon seeing Christian's cramped space, Tim said, "Wow, you really know how to make it work!" (By the way, for a rather...

    We enjoyed beautiful, Indian summer weather this past weekend, and I took a photo break Sunday afternoon to capture some images of my bucolic little town where I work and live: Stow, Massachusetts.
