Newbie needs help: How can I set up an awesome sewing space?
I am brand new to sewing. In fact, I'm so new that I don't even know how to use my new Janome properly yet. Before I begin this latest crafting adventure, I need to set up my machine somewhere.
I'm going to be converting my side of our home office into a sewing space, and would love to hear some feedback on any tips and tricks you have for organizing your supplies, notions, and other tools!
How do you have your sewing space set up?
What are some of the most important things you need handy?
What are you favorite storage solutions?
What are some things you wish you knew starting out?
Photos are welcomed and encouraged! Please help this newbie get started on a good foot. :)
I just received my order of 100 quilting machine sewing needles. these were suppose to be quilting needles however they are marked the same as the micro tex needles that I had ordered several months ago. Did anyone else have this problem. Is there anything to do about it. I still need the quilting needles
Loving the idea of this knitting community. It seems awful quiet though (as far as drops go, I mean). Is there anything we as members can help to get the ball rolling on amazing yarns, notions, patterns, kits, etc.?
Hi, can anyone help me understand why I am seeing so many drops outside my 2 selected communitie? I have selected only quilying and cooking, but my emails contain a lot of gaming drops that I have no interest in! Thanks!
What's your favorite batting for quilts used in the summer?
As we are smack dab in the middle of summer I find the temperature fluctuations difficult to sleep! Sometimes I want a down comforter and sometimes just a sheet will do. When making quilts do you take into account the season that they will be used? Do you have a favorite batting that is good for hotter nights during the summer? Maybe I'm the only one with out air conditioning... :-)
