Nifty Novelties Day 02… from Seams To Be Sew

I loved how all the bloggers did such cool projects yesterday. Whether it’s new or old, even not finished, seeing what we do with fabrics, prints, novelties, batiks, is always so inspiring. The very reason I love sewing and quilting so much is that I can create the same project over and over, but each different fabric I use tells me its own story. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone else’s projects today and Monday. Keep in mind you have up to a week to enter each of the giveaways. There are 10 different giveaways in all ...

Creating Layouts In EQ8 With Photos from Seams To Be Sew

My first EQ8 tutorial since it came out and it’s longer than even I’d anticipated it was going to be. I really edited out a lot of stuff to get it to an hours length, so I do apologize that it’s lengthy, but you all know I try to give as much info as possible. I’m not one who makes tons of 2 minute videos so you can watch 50 different pages of videos on the same thing or in parts, I like to get it all in the same video, so my video lessons always ...
