I am really excited about teaching in Alaska on Tuesday, August 23, 2011. While I have been there several times, this will be my first time to present a seminar in Fairbanks. I love Alaska in the summer; the last time I was there it was in the 90's and I got a sunburn.

When adding binding, leave a quarter inch of batting when trimming to pad the binding. It makes for a nicer edge......Kathy
I use green painter's tape to mark lines on my quilts to hand quilt. You can get the tape in 1/4", 1/2" and so on. It leaves no mark on your quilt and actually helps to keep stitches straight....MemeAre You A Member of our Facebook Group?

Kaye On TV....
We get a lot of phone calls and emails asking where to find Kaye on their TV. The simple answer is we don't know, (sorry). Here's what to do. Call your PBS, cable and satellite providers and ask them. If they don't show it, ask them to add it to their lineup. Our shows are called Kaye's Quilting Friends and Quilting The Kaye Wood Way.Little Known Independence Day Facts....
The Real Independence Day?
The Declaration of Independence was announced on July 4th, though the formal signing didn't occur until August 2nd, and the colonies actually voted to accept it on July 2nd. So you may wonder - what day is the real Independence Day?
Did you know, that there have been 28 versions of the U.S flag to date, and that the most recent one, designed after Alaska and Hawaii joined the union, was the result of a school project? Robert Heft was 17 when he came up with the flag design in 1958. He originally got a B- on the project, but when his pattern won the national competition to become the next flag, his teacher raised his grade to an A.
A Patriotic Death?
Three American presidents have died on the fourth of July. Thomas Jefferson and John Adams died on the same day, in 1826. They had been rivals in everything, even about who would live longest. Adams' last words were about his long-time foe: "Thomas Jefferson lives!" In fact, Jefferson had died just five hours earlier, but Adams hadn't gotten the message. James Monroe is the third president to die on July 4th, but he died in 1831.
Have a great week (and a safe and fun 4th) from The staff at Kaye Wood, Inc!
