Quite alot of work has been going on I see. I just got home today from 11 days on the road without good internet access. Now it is time to get to work again. On the way home this weekend we spent a night in Grand Rivers, Kentucky. While there we visited the Canal campground, a COE park on Lake Barkley. Very pretty, and right on the lake. It is very popular and fills quickly. reservations can be made up to 6 months before, so we could figure what day that is and all make them at the same time.

Hancocks of Paducah is closed on Sunday. We were back there a year ago April on a Sunday and had big plans to spend some time at Hancocks after lunch. Drove to their store and learned that it's not open on Sunday.

Definitely plan to go back -- on a weekday or a Saturday.

I do order from them online all the time . . .

Yum... Patti's! I love their pies, strawberry butter, and pork chops... and the homemade potato chips.

I love going through the end bolt remnant bin at Hancock's. Always best place to get current fabrics at a really great price. Also great source for stash building.

Have b een doing the same thing. recently unloaded several hundred yards of fabric from the family/sewing room. Hubby assured me that if I needed to buy more for a current project all I had to do was go to the store and get what I needed. It was very stressful to get rid of "good" fabric, but must admit that it is much easier to see what I have. But the room is much more clutter free.

I just unloaded a bag of precut squares i've had for 6 years. After awhile I just had to admit that I wasn't actually going to use them. It was painful.....

For anyone "unloading" excess stash, many quilting guilds and churches have groups that quilt for charitable causes such as for veterans, children in foster care or hospitals, seniors in care facilities and so on. Gifts of fabric are gold to these groups, providing the goods for their projects. Just a suggestion...~G

I just happen to have a Singer 221 Featherweight with all the bells and whistles, hard case with handle, lots of attachments like hemmer, binder, ruffler and more. I even have the complete instruction manual too. Had it serviced a few years back at the Singer shop so it runs great.

Send me a PM and best offer with shipping gets it.........

There are several ladies at the Washington Land Yacht Harbor in Olympia (Lacey) that sew/quilt for charities and are also on the lookout for fabrics. They also knit hats for charity. PM me for info

Jexibels - cool tree skirt! Well done.

Maybe we should have a special section for us quilters/sewers in the forums classifieds - then we could offer our tools plus tasty stashes!

Did you make that one out of scraps or buy more for it? I like that it's square instead of round. I also like the fabric choices.
