A Few of Our Favourite Things

At the September Meeting of the Keswick Ridge Quilters the theme was, A Few of My Favourite Things.  Our program committee asked some of its members what some of their favourite things were for sewing and quilting.  See the minutes for a list of all 19 favourite things.  Here are a few from the list that needed some additional information.

1.  A Prairie Point Ruler . For a neat prairie point project go to
            or this one

2. Self-threading needles. For a look at how these cheater needles can be used go to

3. A 20% discount from October 3rd to 6th at Rather B Quilting, 224 B Road, Houlton, Maine and at Joanne's Christmas Crab Quiltery in Woodstock,

5. Susan demonstrated the Twister Ruler and you can find a tutorial and project ideas for that ruler at
or on Cheryl's site

6. Nancy demonstrated how to make an extension for your ironing board.  Here is a video to watch if you are thinking of trying this project:

6. The recipe for the Skor Bars can be found under the Minute Highlights

7.  And FINALLY,  don't forget the A Quilt-Makers' Cottage Day on Saturday September 29, from 9am to midnight.  Everyone is invited to attend.  Members need to sign up, bring a lunch and there will be pizza for supper.
