    I certainly enjoyed your vidcast with Alex. It’s good to see you supporting each other. We (quilters) certainly enjoy learning from both of you. As women we need that support. I am retired , nearing seventy(my where did the years go) and find our Friday “sewing” group very supportive, fun, and inspiring.
    I also enjoy your sharing of other (philosophical) thoughts with us all.
    I love the name Dream Mountain Studio as I have spent part of my life in northeast Pennsylvania, it is a very appropriate name for that area.
    Do you ever give classes when you are home? Just checking in case I don’t get your class at the NCQ Symposium this spring.( We still visit family and friends in the Honesdale area,)
    Thanks for your time,
    Pat Kern

    Thank you for another informative and interesting vidcast!

    We don’t have Simply Quilts in the UK and so it was interesting to see Alex Anderson! I love the stitching ideas on the binding - thank you!

    Thank you so much! I played this about six times while I was binding my fourth journal quilt. The process was so well explained and my page look so professionally done. A walking foot is a must! I started the final stitching thinking I wouldn’t take the time to change feet… well, of course, I wasted even more time ripping out some stitching.
    Thanks again, I’ll be using these techniques again and again.

    I have so totally loved your vidcast and just can’t wait for them to come out. I wish I could tell you that I have been able to use a lot of the stuff, however, since I am just getting back into sewing again I am litterally having to start from the very beginning.

    When due to reasons really beyond my fault, I was in major depression and got rid of anything and everything that was of sewing and crafting, you literally have to begin collecting all over again. I wouldn’t have a sewing machine if I hadn’t been given Grandmothers when she passed away…….I use to sew on it when I lived with her and Grandpa a lot so know this machine inside and out, problem is I can remember being in grade school when we were all excited that Grandmother had gotten a new Singer Machine, so this one does nothing fancy and literally has to be taken apart and put back together again as far as the tension is concerned.

    One of these days soon I hope to buy me a new one that works without pulling out all the tools to make it so.
    Sorry am not on a major complaining pitty me party, Just somedays ya just keep on wishing and are thankful for what we’ve been givin

    […] Whew! Finally finished it. I just sat down, got the binding strips that my mom and I cut out at ARTCamp, watched the video my mother raved about (over and over and paused it and played and paused it and played it . . . ) and just DID IT! I am very happy with how it turned out. The binding isn’t perfect, but they are better than I have done in the past, it was almost all by machine, and hey, it’s black on black! Don’t inspect it too closely, mom. […]

    […] One more thing before I show you the final quilt. BINDING! I do all my binding by machine. That’s right. Other than the corners and where I begin and end, I don’t hand sew my binding any longer. Bonnie McCaffery had a great podcast on machine binding and that’s where I learned to do my binding by machine. She can explain it better than I—check it out and give it a try. You may find out that you don’t dread binding after all! […]
