Placement of sewing machine by Jane MacDonald
Glacier My husband is making me a sewing table, just a piece of countertop with a hole cut out, in which to set the sewing machine. The problem I have with my present cabinet is that I can't sit directly in front of the needle, but have to "lean to the left" to sew. I also find that the needle...

OT Humour - Written & Spoken English by CATS
If you can pronounce correctly every word in this poem, you will be speaking English better than 90% of the native English speakers in the world. After trying the verses, a Frenchman said he'd prefer six months of hard labour to reading six lines aloud. Try them yourself.

a new development in Scotland by Jack Campin - bogus address
The ban on smoking in public places in Scotland came into force today. I was playing at an afternoon folk session, the difference was amazing (mainly, people talk much more quietly when they're not smoking, so we could hear what we were doing a lot better - more details in a post I made to...

Ethical question about quilt shows by Sunny[_2_]
I was admiring the gorgeous quilt that won the top prizes at this year's local guild quilt show a few weeks back today. It was made by one of the owners of the LQS here. I opined that picking the fabrics must have been really a hoot when she said that she hadn't picked any, it was a kit. OK, I...

OT proposed discussion: How did you learn to be a "woman" rather than a "girl"? by Tricia
No offense to our male readers/quilters, but this topic is weighing on my mind right now and needs discussing AFAIC....Also, right away, let me say, I know there is much more to being a woman than make up and hair styles and such. Those other (and yes, much more important) things AREN'T the things...

What do you like/don't you like about quilting? by \Pussywillow\ Volfie
I was piecing a block today and it occured to me that there are very specific parts of building a quilt that I like and very specific parts I don't like (or don't like as much). I like looking at patterns and designs and dreaming up quilts. I like finding, buying, washing, ironing, cutting the...

Copyright and stealing (ON topic) by Kathy Applebaum
I've been rather bothered over the last few days by the posts indirectly addressing copyright issues here. This is a subject that's been hashed over many times before, and not a lot that's new is ever added to this debate. Still, I feel I need to vent. I've seen several posts advocating the...

ok - the story by Queen of Squishies
I have been pursuaded to make this public for the good of all. I didn't feel too good about it, because I was the main instrument, but heck, it wasn't my fault. I'm just too nice. : ) I got an email, and a follow-up phone conversation, from someone who was around 5 years ago. This woman...

World quilt help by Shona in NZ
Hello all, I have an idea and thought I might get some ideas from your collective wisdom. I have a friend who just loves world maps. He will sit for hours looking at the one hanging on his wall. So I thought it would be fitting to make him a world quilt of sorts. He REALLY likes my NZ critter...

What part of quilting do you enjoy the most? by Lynne Van
We've had this conversation before, but it's been awhile. Really, I have two questions: 1. What technique do you like the best (appliqué, piecing, paper piecing, etc.) Why? 2. What part of the quilting process do you enjoy the most?(design, fabric selection, piecing, quilting, etc.)Why? And...

OT medicine costs killing me by Polly Esther
I am so reluctant to ask this since I know you are getting blasted with spam from drug dealers - but - our prescription bills are just overwhelming. Have any of you dared to order your medicines from Canada? We almost needed to go get a tire tool to unlock my jaws when I wrote a check for the...
