A very Happy New Year to everyone! It is always nice to start fresh after a busy holiday season! I look forward to January because I think life should slow down and I will be able to enjoy a nice long quiet month to contemplate new ideas for quilts I see on Pinterest. However, it actually means that I should be catching up on the 2015 (and beyond) projects I never finished, but so far neither has happened yet! Really January, slow down!!
So weather you are planning new projects or finishing up old ones I hope your 2016 cooperates for you and this is your best productive year yet! I always have hope for me!
Happy Quilting, Pam
Introducing an innovative new product!
kraft-tex Paper Fabric
Tough, touchable new paper combines the best of leather and fabric
Wait until you get your hands on this rugged paper that looks, feels, and wears like leather, but sews, cuts, and washes just like fabric. kraft·tex™ is supple, yet strong enough to use for projects that get tough wear. Use it to bring an exciting new texture to your craft-sewing projects, mixed-media arts, and bookmaking.
• Play with it! Sew it, stamp it, draw on it, fold it, inkjet print it
• Durable enough for totes, belts, wallets, book covers, luggage tags, and more
• The fiber-based texture softens and crinkles with handling and washing
