Re: Designers Announced for Project Runway Season 11

I am looking forward to this season. Working in teams is more like real life. How often does a professional designer go lone wolf to create a full runway show? They need to work with a large staff. The ability to build strong interpersonal relationships and professional courtesy in the workplace is a key component in any successful business The team challenge should prove who has the ability to really "make it work" outside their own private sewing studio. After all, fashion is also a business.

Re: Mega Quilt Giveaway

My greatest quilting moment was delivering 2 college graduation quilts to my sister and step-brother. It was a huge undertaking to complete 2 full size quilts in one year but the effort was well worth it, just to see the looks on both their faces. I was so blessed by their gratitude. It truly can be more blessed to give than to receive.
