    Default You Know I Had To Buy It!

    One of the weekly specials last week was the Man Sewing "Unstrung Heroes" applique quilt pattern. You know that, with my forum handle, I just had to buy it!

    I received it this morning, and I just have to report on what a high quality pattern it is. The directions are clear, the paper is heavy weight, the appliques are well organized, and everything is marked clearly. I am super impressed with this!

    Nice job, Missouri Star and Rob Appell!
    Toni ... If I keep sewing long enough, will they make their own dinner?

    Sad that he is no longer affiliated with M*....I wonder who severed the relationship.

    I'm going to miss his videos for M*, looks like he branched out and has a new channel through Michael Miller fabrics. Wishing him success! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAi...Ar01tpsRcSycGE

    Oh dear, I hadn't heard this. What happened? Is there a link where I can read about this?

    Toni, thanks for your feedback on the pattern. I bought the kit while on retreat last year. Actually found it in the clearance bin. It's on the shelf waiting its' turn to be stitched up. I typically don't do applique, but my SIL has several guitars and I thought it would be a perfect surprise for him.

    Here's the announcement from Man Sewing's Facebook page:


    Man Sewing with Rob Appell
    March 11 at 120 PM ·
    When we started Man Sewing four years ago, we set out with the goal to inspire and empower everyone to create and we’ve enjoyed watching the Man Sewing family grow. Thank you so much for being a part of it! We wanted to let you know that we are pausing new Man Sewing tutorials for the immediate future. We wish Rob Appell the best and thank him for being part of the journey. You can follow along with Rob and his future endeavors at www.robappell.com , on his Facebook page at Rob Appell Designs or on his brand new YouTube channel "Making it Fun with Rob Appell". Rob would love it if you guys gave him a follow or stopped by to say "hello". He also is excited to announce that he is now working with Michael Miller Fabrics on their creative team - so look for fun things in the near future from this new partnership.

  9. Thanks Monique, Claire Hallman, SuzanneOrleansOntario thanked for this post

    I had not heard that. Thanks Karen for sharing the announcement.

    I guess there's a time for everything. Remember Crafty Gemini? Rob Appell.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

    Suzzane, I was just thinking about Crafty Gemini, she is still out there in youtube land creating, but has moved to more sewing type programs to knitting, crafting, I think I also saw a crochet one.
    The saying that comes to mind is "To everything there is a season" and change is always on the horizon.

    @JulieC - Thank you for that update. The announcement sounds like it comes from M*, which makes sense: M* owns the Man Sewing name & logo.

    I found an introductory video by Rob under "Making It Fun," and he says, "You may remember me from Man Sewing." That implies that the split was friendly; when it's not, you're usually barred from ever using the old name.

    I'm hoping this is as simple as Rob got tired of the constant travel to Missouri. His kids are entering their teen years. Dad just may need to be home more.
    Toni ... If I keep sewing long enough, will they make their own dinner?
