ICYMI (In Case You Missed It!)

April was a pretty spectacular month here at Garden Gate Quilting! MQX Quilt Festivals was held April 6-9, 2016 and I was lucky enough to take two great classes and volunteer a boatload of hours! On Sunday the 3rd and Monday the 4th I worked with the photography team photographing every quilt that would hang at the show – 1,783 photos of 420 quilts! It was so cool to get to see them all up close and personal! The workmanship was amazing! Plus the photography team headed by Jeffrey and Cricket Lomicka is the best! On Tuesday I got to help out… Read more »

I put my name in at the shelter saying if they ever get… Read more »

The past few months I’ve been paying attention when someone would ask another machine quilter what kind of thread they like/use. Quite a few said they love Glide, while… Read more »

Building Up Friday – Double Trouble

I began my journey as a machine quilter in 2000. I was looking into longarm (LA) quilting machines and a friend told me about an online “list” or newsgroup. Through there, I met Janet-Lee Santeusanio and Mary Schilke. They already had longarms and were hosting a get together for LA quilters and wanna-be’s in Sunset Hill, NH. That wasn’t too far away, so Tom and I signed up. I got to try my first LA there (you didn’t see them at every quilt show like you do now!) and was hooked. The rest of that story is history…but here’s what happened… Read more »
