3-D Sewing: Sail Bags!

Monday, July 31, 2023

Ever since visiting a shop in Annapolis, Maryland that sold tote bags made from sailboat sails, I've wanted to try making one myself! I loved the idea of using something old to make something new!

Tote bags made from a sailboat sail

My husband and I recently bought a sailboat to use on our local lake, and we joined the sailing club too. It didn't take long for word to get out that I knew how to sew! Some of our new friends gave me this old and broken sail to use to sew some tote bags!

A Logo Quilt for the Craft Industry Alliance

Monday, July 17, 2023

I have been a member of the Craft Industry Alliance since 2017 - just after starting my business. The membership has been so valuable to me, and I continually am impressed with their contributions to the crafts industry.

Earlier this year, Abby Glassenberg, one of the founders of Craft Industry Alliance, asked if I could make a logo quilt for their H+H Americas booth after seeing the logo quilt I had made a few years ago for my own business (see that one HERE!). Of course I agreed!!

Sometimes I get to work with cool people and make cool things, and this is definitely one of those times! Riley Blake Designs sent me all the fabric to make this Crayola quilt!
