    Default Giveaway Week 27 Jul 17th - 24th

    Congratulations to tfrankum! For doing... nothing!!! We love you! And because of the excessive amount of love we feel for you it's spilling out in the form of quilters cash points and there needs to be another winner in order to absorb them all! So, another big congratulations out to Lori63! I hope your grandson enjoys the quilt you're making!

    And speaking of grandsons and other little people I've hit the season of sewing requests I think. (Does that have a season? ) My little people are requesting pencil bags, and backpacks...., yeah, right. But in the spirit of love, and keeping them quiet, I've spent several mornings in the sewing room picking out coordinating fabrics and promising to help her make the pencil bag. Oh boy. ...we'll be buying the backpack.

    So, here's my question. Have you ever had the joy of helping/teaching one of the little people around you learn to sew.
    If not, boy are you in for a treat! Come on down! I've got little people doing projects all over the house! You'll love it...

    To enter the game just hit the reply to thread button at the top or bottom of this page and answer the question! You only get one entry per contest round. A winner will be chosen by random selection in about a week to win our next 1000 Quilters Cash Points!
    Then watch your private messages cause I might be sending one your way!

    To stitch or not to stitch... There is no question.

    Congrats to the winners!

    I taught my daughter some basics of sewing while she was interested. Of course for now her interests have moved to other things.

    I taught my daughter as well. She didn't like it then, but she loves it now!

    All 3 of my kids sew and my granddaughter likes to help.

    No, my grandchild is too young! and I only just learned myself so I never taught my daughters.

    My granddaughter is coming in a couple of weeks and I hope she could help me with some sewing. She is 5.
    Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!
