The recording of the new two-part Sewing With Nancy mini-series, Tried and True Sewing & Quilting Tips, took place during Nancy’s Notions annual Sewing Weekend event in Beaver Dam WI. This yearly event takes place in May. Over 3,000 people flock to our small community for the 3-day sewing extravaganza. My guess is that during this weekend there are more sewists and quilters per capita than any other place in the country! During this exciting weekend, I invited my friends and associates to share one or two of their favorite tried and true sewing & quilting tips. I know you’ll enjoy learning tips from these specialists, as you watch the show.
Jill Repp, from June Tailor, shares her Quick Block Cutting Tricks:
Eileen Roche, from Designs in Machine Embroidery, shares her Reversible Piecing Hints:
Jenny Doan, from Missouri Star Quilting Co., shares her tips for making ½-square triangles:
Pam Damour, Interior Designer, shares here Painless/Pinless Zipper Techniques:
Mary Mulari, Designer and Author, shares her tips for Quick Aprons with Fat Quarters:
