      Hey everyone! I just want to put it out there so we have it on record somewhere, that I am officially SICK of winter! I can take some snow, some cold and even the occasional ice storm that's bound to hit, but I need a break! I need some warmth and I need some sun and more than 5 minutes at a time! I keep looking for that January thaw people here in Michigan keep talking about, but I must be missing something. Then I realize it's only January 7th and well, that just might have something to do with it! It just seems like it should be later then that with all the nasty weather we have been hit with. So if anyone catches sight of spring out there, please...send a bunch of it my way! I'll be waiting and not too patiently either! Have a great week!

      1) A sewing machine needle too dull to sew with works great for a couple of things. It will hold a fairly heavy object on the wall when the narrow part is driven in at an angle up to wider part and doesn't leave much of a hole when pulled out. I also use it when ripping out seams to pick the thread loose enough to either break it or cut it. I really dislike seam rippers as I seem to manage to always cut the fabric with them somewhere along the line. Merrilyn B.

      2) I use old sewing machine needles to hold light weight pictures and decorative items to dry wall. Hammer them lightly into the drywall at an angle and you're good to go! Betty

      3) When making a wall or door hanging, I put a button hole in the center of the rod pocket. Sew the rod pocket on and your wall hanging is always centered. Sharron

      The LoveQuilt™ Connection is coming to Puyallup, WA!

      When you come to enjoy the Sewing and Stitchery Expo, don't forget to pencil in some time for the LoveQuilt™!

      The LoveQuilt™ Connection is an event taken to National Quilt and Sewing events, to promote community charity work through quilting. At the event, a coordinator works with volunteers to make the 6 Hour Quilt created by Kaye Wood. At the end of the event a charity chosen in advance, sends a representative to receive the quilts. They in turn distribute them to individuals in need. Our mission is to have as many people as possible to learn the technique, so they in turn could, "pay it forward" by teaching it to others. Over 2500 quilts have been made and lovingly given since the program was first introduced in 1993. Many quilters have in turn sponsored events in their own community.

      At this event YLI, Igolochkoy, Mt. Mist, P & B Textiles, Clover and Janome have donated supplies to make the 6 Hour Quilts. Our goal is to make 45-60 quilts to be donated to the Crystal Judson Family Justice Center in Tacoma, WA. So please come and join us. A tiny bit of your donated time to stitch on a quilt, can be so beneficial to someone who needs a little love.

      Words of wisdom

      "I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. Twenty-six times I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and have missed. I've failed over and over again in my life, and that is why I succeed." Michael Jordan

      "The only time you don't fail is the last time you try anything-and it works." William Strong

      "Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm." Sir Winston Churchill

      "Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising every time we fail." Confucius

      "Failure doesn't mean you are a failure...it just means you haven't succeeded yet." Robert Schuller
