  • Cutting machine?

    I'm looking for a machine that will cut intricate patterns that I either cut out of card stock or I can draw them.

  • Embellished Military Jacket

    Found a well made military jacket on clearance - it even had bound seam edges. Added some bead, fabric and embroidery embellishments. It took two tries to get it right - the first time was a bit too garish. The embellished jacket is fun to wear! Additional detail at: Destashification Project

  • Embellished Ready Made Dress

    It is rare that a ready-made dress fits well, or is comfortable, or is reasonably priced - but even rarer to have all three occur with one dress! So, obviously, it came home with me. The dress's only negative was four very large black plastic lozenge-shaped beads that were sewn to the empire waist...

  • Quilted Felting - where to talk about it and share?!

    Not sure which of the subforums "Quilted Felting" belongs in, much less Art Quilting that incorporates polymer clay...so I will try here!

  • Any advice....

    Hello! I'm new to the Quilting Arts world, but I've been hand quilting for many years. I have the urge to do more artistic pieces. I have done some beading, but that's it.

  • Re: wearable arts and sustainability

    Upcycling clothing is fast becoming a new "trend", but for some of us, it has always been a necessity. I agree that advertisements and magazines often try to convince us of what defines style...but I am glad to be of a mind to determine what defines style for me. After years of having to dress...
