Ok, so it is not the New Year yet. However this is the first year since I began quilting that I have had some free time during the Holiday so I have been using the last few days to revamp my website and review my price list. Believe it or not, I have lowered many of my prices. I have found that working independently again in my Studio and with the addition of the Nolting Pro that I am in charge of my prices list "Yea"! For 2013 I am getting back to some basics. Working on some traditional quilts, enjoying my embroidery machine and Chairing the Quilt Show for the Cabarrus Quilters Guild. So watch our facebook page for news on that as well.
I am once again carrying the Dream Cotton in the Select Loft. I can order other lofts if you like the heavier ( I do keep some for my own use). I still carry the Warm and Natural, Hobbs 80/20 (Moms Favorite) and Hobbs Poly Down. I can order just about any kind but these are the brands that work the best on my machine.
As for thread, I have over 300 colors to choose from. I love using the poly neon with its nice sheen and very light to the eye. You get to see the quilt first and then my quilting. We can always use a high contrast color but for the most part I just love the subtle effect that you get. If you are a true cotton purest I do also use King Tut and some YLI, This is a more expensive thread and a bit thicker so if we are going for just some texture we will want to stay away from this. If you look at most of the work from our well known Award Winning Quilters almost no one is using cotton anymore. Don't worry, this is not the polyester thread our grandmothers used in their day. I have many quilts that are over 10 years old and still holding up great.
Well Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays to all and lets have a very blessed year! I look foward to continuing to do your quilting for you and thank you from the bottom of my heart for being so loyal throughout the years.
Until next year. Hope to see you soon!
