My New to Me - Used - Janome 15000 from All Things Crafty

My new to me (used) Janome 15000 sewing / embroidery machine has arrived!  I waited for a long time for the prices to drop and I finally found a good bargain.  I'm so excited to learn more about it!  Unfortunately, the sewing foot needed to sew out the decorative stitches was missing so I'll have to wait to test that out  until my new one arrives.  For now, I just do some straight stitching and turn it back off.






To be honest, I also use the auto thread cutter on the foot pedal and the auto needle threader.  I ...

An Interview With: Linda Pearl of One Quilting Circle from Terificreations's Weblog

I don’t quite remember how I met Linda, it’s one of those relationships where I’m not quite sure that matters. Linda and I talked on the phone a few times about quilterly business stuff and have simply connected. Linda is a key behind the scenes person and a fab quilter. How did you start quilting? … Continue reading An Interview With: Linda Pearl of One Quilting Circle

Boo, J.D. (for Juvenile Delinquent) from Art and Quilting in Camden

Boo, J.D. by Sarah Ann Smith, 2019

Boo’s portrait is the third part of this trio of quilts. I had considered doing a self portrait, Sarah and her muses, with the selfie for my local Coastal Quilters challenge due next May. But then hubby, who has never ever asked me to make an art quilt, said when he saw the ones of Yoda and Widgeon, “you should make one of Boo, too.” Boo, you see, is his Very Special Cat. So I did that instead. Much nicer than a selfie! And it turns out the portrait challenge doesn ...

I Love, Therefore I Am (Widgeon’s quilt) from Art and Quilting in Camden

“I Love, Therefore I Am” is the perfect title for this quilt of our beloved pug, Pigwidgeon.

Earlier this summer I made three quilts for Janome America to share at the upcoming dealer conference in Florida this week. Janome has generously sponsored me with a machine and included me in their Artisan program for over 15 years!!!! THANK YOU (yes I’m shouting)! I was delighted to make these in appreciation. Here is the blurb I wrote to go with Widgeon’s quilt.

Yoda, the love of my life, tells me that Mom has done ...

New England World Quilt Show Exhibit! from Art and Quilting in Camden

In a rather astonishing development last May, an earlier inquiry about teaching and exhibiting turned into an invitation to have a solo exhibit, The Art of Sarah Ann Smith … so far, at the Mancuso Brothers World Quilt New England Show tin Springfield, Massachusetts (this is the one that used to be in Manchester, NH). I hope you’ll enjoy this preview peek, if you’re in the vicinity can visit, and on Saturday I hope to post a Facebook Live or other video of the exhibit. I should arrive about noon (it’s a long drive from Maine). Click on ...

Hot off the press! from Quilting with Kimberly

Recently I added something new to my quilting tool arsenal which has literally changed my quilting life. And when I find a new product that works so well it literally changes the process of how I create and my quilting results for the better, I have to share. 

Let me introduce you to a the Elna Press 850. 

Presses aren’t new; they’ve been around for decades but were mostly used for pressing clothes and linens. The first time I was introduced to this press was earlier this year when John Ryan, Director of Business Development for Janome-America, Inc ...

The Big Reveal from Quilting with Kimberly

For the past five years or so, I’ve had an idea in my mind for a quilt I wanted to design and make for no other purpose than the thought of it simply made me happy. 

But there was never enough time. 

I keep myself so busy making quilts for publications, quilt samples, or step-outs and demos for the classes I teach there is never time to make quilts “just because.” Don’t get me wrong; I’m not complaining. I love to design and make quilts no matter what the end purpose may be. But the idea of ...

Drop-in Janome Shop Stop #5 from Quilting with Kimberly

The first workshop at the Greater Houston Quilt Guild; the Lone Starburst class!

I had the privilege of traveling to Houston, Texas, last week to spend several days with two area guilds, the Greater Houston Quilt Guild and the West Houston Quilt Guild. They were such nice ladies and I enjoyed my time with both guilds immensely! 

Even though the schedule was pretty tightly packed with guild activities including two lectures and two full-day workshops, my sweet and obliging driver, Julie, managed to squeeze in a side trip for me to visit a wonderful Janome dealer and full-service quilt shop ...

A rare opportunity from Quilting with Kimberly

This a personal invitation to join me for a trunk show!

It’s not often I present an extensive trunk show of my quilts. Sometimes less than once a year — or for a very special event such as a national quilt show — do I pull out my most interesting and meaningful quilts. So when I do, it’s a rare treat indeed! As you know, I’m very proud to be the National Spokesperson for Janome and I’m excited to announce I’ll be sharing about 40 of my quilts during a very special evening on March 22, 2019 ...

Quilters beware. from Quilting with Kimberly

Quality matters.

As quilters we strive to use the best materials, tools and products so our quilts will be beautiful and stand the test of time. Sometimes though, a product which might appear to be high-quality might not be at all. Recently, I found this out the hard way.

I’ve been working on a new sampler quilt comprised of various blocks constructed using different techniques and stitching methods. I had planned to do fusible machine applique on some of the blocks. But since I don’t store fusible web for any length of time (because it has a short ...
