Tips and Humor From Kaye....
During a consumer show, the vendor in the next booth was doing a demonstration. A gentleman watched for quite a while, then asked, "Do you really need to know anything to be able to do this?""Good. I'll be back in a minute." He hurried down the aisle yelling, "Helen I found something you can do."
Unsure of how to answer, she said, "Not really. It is pretty easy."
Kaye meets many people and sees many things while she travels. She always comes back with a couple of humorous stories to tell. Here is one of them.
Are You Really A Quilter?
In a crowded elevator, everyone got out except this elderly gentleman and myself. He had a quilt badge on, so I knew he was part of the group.
"Do you really enjoy coming to the quilt shows, or do you just get dragged along?"
He said, with a gleam in his eye, "Where else can I be in a room filled with women and lift up their skirts, look inside their jackets and vests, and they thank me for admiring their sewing?"
It really happened, I swear!

If you cook, these are pot holders; if you don't cook, they are kitchen quilts.
A pinwheel quilt block is made from four rectangle squares. make two different pot holders with plain backs, or use one of the potholders for the front and one for the back.
The segments in each of the blocks are made the same, but the sewing steps are different.
Sewer/Weaver Invented The Computer....
In 18th century France, Joseph-Marie Jacquard invented the first automatic loom which used punch cards to create complex, precise patterns in fabric. Many people regard this invention as the first great step toward the development of computer technology....Leah Dicker.

Show 'N Tell....
I have always wanted to make a Grandmothers Flower Garden but I had no idea what I was in for. I cut 2 1/2" hexagons, sewed them all by hand, then hand quilted my quilt. The only part I used the machine on was the binding. This was a job for sure. I love how it come out and it fits my queen size bed perfectly. But never again lol. I hope you like it....Donna

Button Button! Which Side The Button?
To help you remember which side to put the buttonholes, recite this old (and politically incorrect) phrase:
"Women are always right and men are left over!" lol
