Re: Mega Quilt Giveaway

I invited 3 ladies from my church to come to my sewing and work on scrappy blocks using my machines and my big hamper full of scraps. We had a wonderful time and the blocks came out really nice. I combined the scrappy blocks with printed Bible verse blocks and some leftover appliqued blocks and we donated the quilts for the Pastor to distribute.
A few months later, as I was leaving the Sunday service, I noticed a lady in a wheelchair at the back of the Church and she had the quilt I made on her lap. That gave me such a warm and wonderful feeling. We made something useful and appreciated from discards. It truly is better to give than to receive.

This book looks very helpful and I would love to win it, of course.

Re: Editors On the Road -- North Carolina

Just yesterday I went through an entire drawer of thread, purging spools with nothing left, tidying the spools and arranging by color. It was then a surprise to myself that I decided that my favorite thread is Coats & Clark Dual Duty. It has never let me down. I even have an entire thread cabinet of another brand with about 160 spools, but I find the Dual Duty to be a better thread and will choose that brand first from now on. The article is very interesting and I'm looking forward to learning more
