    Re: Hand Crank Directon Arrows

    I do. Creality Ender 3. It is awesome. A little bit of learning curve on modeling the parts in the 3D design software but it is so cool to be able to literally print things.

    Re: To cover or not to cover

    Re: Which type of applique

    Another vote for fusible and zig-zag stitching or if your machine will do it, a blanket stitch is also nice.

    You can buy battery powered electric heated socks on Amazon. I've never tried them, but I know they exist.

    Re: Are you a kit girl?
