Cube Quilt - Custom Machine Quilting by Natalia Bonner from Piece N Quilt

Over the years I've machine quilted several quilts for Paula and I've shared several of them here with you. I've loved quilting her darling quilts. She has made a quilt special for each of her grand-children and now that they've started getting married she's making quilts for their spouses. I really love that Paula lets the grand-kids pick out the patterns and fabrics, so you know they'll love and cherish the quilts that she's made for them forever!

Why I love and hate YouTube from QUilting By-You

I love internet research.  I really do.  There is so much stuff out there that is easily accessible!  Patterns everywhere!  Quilt designers self-publishing patterns that you can purchase right from their website!  It’s amazing and super convenient!

Then there is YouTube and I’m loving that as well.  Not sure how to do something?  Look it up on YouTube.  We have fixed our dishwasher that way as well as our camera.  So much information!  There are quilters on YouTube as well.  Tours of quilting studios, videos of shopping hauls,  and how-to’s for just about anything you can think ...

Channel Trailer from Pebble Creek Arts

I got in the front of the camera for the first time! Talk about excruciating! It took several tries and several blunders, but I finally felt like it was good enough for posting.

I had a trailer for my YouTube channel, but it was not very interesting and I decided that I needed to emulate my favorite channels a little closer. Since my favorites are the ones with tutorials, I thought I would give it a shot. Since I am going to start doing tutorials, my first step was to create a new channel trailer that would represent that a ...

Butterick 6214- Video Sew Along with Crafty Gemini from Crafty Gemini

 

butterick 6214 pattern video sew along with crafty gemini

The time has come! I started a new video sew along using Butterick 6214. I chose this pattern because it has a simple loose-fitting silhouette, no closures, very few pattern pieces and can be sewn up in both a woven and a stretch knit fabric.  All that combined seemed to fit the bill of what I was looking for to teach as a beginner friendly project!

If you have struggled with choosing the right size sewing pattern from a commercial envelope this sew along is just for you! In this new FREE series of videos I’ll be walking you ...

sparkle bee from Charm About You

tula pink wonky star quilt blocks

I got to play with some Tula Pink All Stars fabric this week and I adore the bee print! Wonky stars are a fun quick sew and it's nice to mix up the points, using different prints and solids. I made the bees the star of the show by fussy cutting them for the centre of the wonky star blocks.

For those of you who have a YouTube channel, you know that the change is coming up quickly and those who don't have enough subscribers will lose their partnership agreement.

I have plans to share quilting, crafting and stamping videos on my channel.

The Future of the Craftcore YouTube Channel #YouTubePartnerProgram from Craftcore

I started my YouTube channel in November of 2016, posting craft tutorials, craft room tours, and sewing machine reviews.  I’ve loved having a way to show you guys even more sides of my crafty life.  Sometimes it’s easier to show you a tutorial in video format rather than in static images and text.

Eligibility Changes for the YouTube Partner Program

Like many content creators, I support this blog with advertising.  The advertising helps cover my server costs and costs of supplies.  It does not cover all my costs, but that’s okay.  This is my hobby, not a ...
