Heavy Boxes and New Webbing

Heavy Boxes and New Webbing

We are getting very close to the Lancaster, PA AQS Quilt Week. As usual I can tell how close we are by the number of heavy boxes I am carrying down the stairs. I try not to think about the fact that I carry everything in these boxes upstairs first to get cut, and/or...

Video Demo of Carol’s Convertible Purse.

Mike aka Mr Laura here. Wow, was this harder than I thought it would be! This little video took (I lost count of how many) tries to do. It could be much better,  but enough was enough for today. Unfortunately this provides video evidence that the scale is not lying...

Mike, aka Mr Laura here. I see it has been Quite Some Time since my last update. The Houston International Quilt Market and Festival is a great event, but it is also exhausting. Considering preparing for the show, packing for the show, traveling to Houston, setting up...

Charlotte AQS Quilt Show

Charlotte AQS Quilt Show

Mike and I are back from the AQS Quilt Show in Charlotte, NC. It always feels so good to sleep in your own bed and we are trying to catch up on our sleep. This working for a living is exhausting! Saturday morning before the show opened I was able to walk around to see...
