Kaye's Quilting and Sewing Online Newsletter, Tuesday, July 19, 2005
Kaye Wood's Quilting Newsletter
Hey everyone! I have one little word for you this week...! It has been a scorcher here in Northern Michigan for weeks now! The kind of heat and humidity that makes you sweat just by breathing. My philosophy is if it's going to be this hot, we might as well be on a beautiful island, enjoying it! But, alas, it's only in my dreams! So, since we can't be there, I think you should fix a big pitcher of lemonade, turn on a big fan, and settle yourself in front of the sewing machine to finish some of those projects you haven't had time for. Not feeling that ambitious? You can always find the latest Kaye's Quilting Friends program on PBS, BYU or QNN, for guaranteed enjoyment! Stay cool!

Have you ever had a quilt or project that you thought would look good with a certain shade of fabric, but couldn't find the right color? Maybe you had a certain design in your mind and once again, you couldn't find it. Well, with this book you have no more excuses. Join well known quilter and fabric designer Cindy Walter along with the founder of Fabrics To Dye For, Jennifer Priestley, as they open you to a new world of dyeing and painting fabrics! This book has over 100 inspiring photos, instructions for 20 different techniques of dyeing and painting fabric, along with full-size patterns for unique fabric projects.

Survey Results-Top 3 other interest for our readers!
1) Reading was by far the leading favorite.
2) Gardening, flower and vegetable, and knitting and crocheting were pretty much tied for second.
3) Spending time with family and friends.
Some other favorites were:
Cooking and food crafts, scrap booking, paper crafts, travel, photography, needle arts, animals and playing on the computer.
We found some of these other ones a bit interesting.
Chocolate, Ukranian egg decorating, work, collecting, (including one who was looking for a husband), clubs, (Red Hat was mentioned a few times), and just about any activity/sport, indoors or out!

Displaying your quilts.
Quilts are visually pleasing, but it is important to be aware of what is best for the conservation of the quilt.
Keep quilts out of direct or indirect sunlight or strong artificial light. Florescent lights can cause color fading.
If quilts are displayed on wood or on abrasive walls, protect the back of the quilt by covering the wall surface or lining the back of the quilt.
Quilts should not be displayed where they will be exposed to odors and harmful moisture.
Quilts should not be displayed where they can be easily handled.
