Needle Points from Rhonda


Quilters and sewists unite! I often say, quilters should run the world. We get things done. We are piece keepers on so many levels. We inspire others to work together. Quilting and sewing spans the globe knowing no boundaries. Well. . .  it is a dream!


My wish for you as we honor the heritage and freedom of our countries, is that you squeeze in some sewing and quilting time among the celebrations.

SCHMETZ Inspired to SEW #17


Are your fabric scraps outgrowing your stash? If you quilt, you've got scraps along with the mystery of what to do with these beautiful irregular pieces. Meet Joan Ford. Joan, with her ever logical mind, developed a method of cutting and organizing leftover fabrics into a meaningful system she coined as ScrapTherapy. Discover Joan's inspiration as she transitioned from corporate accountant to bestselling author, designer and teacher. Not only will you love Joan, but you will want to read her books and organize your stash. Click Here!
