On the Road . . .


Last year I asked my husband for a unicorn on my birthday. Baffled, my husband replied, "What. . . ?" I did not get a unicorn, although I am pretty certain my husband has his own magical powers.


A few days ago I unexpectedly found an ever so soft Cuddle unicorn at International Quilt Market. I could not take this unicorn home, but at least I had a few pics taken with this soft, squeezable, mystical creature. Even without a unicorn, I did not leave Quilt Market empty handed. Take a look below at a few treasures soon to be seen at your local shop. Sew on my friends. Make magic with your sewing . . . .

Sewing & Quilting Retreats

Archived now at http://www.schmetzneedles.com.


Sewing and quilting retreats are happening in every state, every city and town in the country. They take place in urban lofts, church basements, log cabins, mansions, remodeled barns and luxury cruise ships. A retreat can be a few friends getting together in their local library for a day of sewing, or a large group of quilters spending a week on board a Caribbean cruise ship. Regardless of the size or the location, retreat attendees have one thing in common, their LOVE OF SEWING. What could be better than stepping away from daily life, no worries about food or dishes, letting the creative stitches fly and going home with a finished project? There is a retreat for every budget and every interest. Click HERE.
