Every now and again an older project needs a facelift. (Don’t we all!) My kitchen accessories are no exception. I’ve made plenty of potholders in the past, but I’m a messy cook and they get dirty, then stained, maybe even a little burned on the stove and of course washed … Continue reading →
Hi everyone! It’s Jann from Newton Custom Interiors again. I love sewing for my grandchildren, and I especially love sewing something for them when they’re newborns. Today, I’m going to share with you how to make a baby quilt. This is what I made for my newest grandson when he … Continue reading →
Working on quilts has proven to be difficult. The slightest rustle of fabric and Oliver is all over it, whether its at the sewing machine, being layered out on the table, laid out for photographs, or freshly out of the wash. He has truly found his happy place. Except not … Continue reading →

You must be wondering what happened to my serger I got for Christmas? Well, I’m embarrassed but I just never found the time! I enrolled in the Beginner Serging Class on Craftsy and then never found the time to watch it, and was afraid to make a start without knowing … Continue reading →
I did it. And I love it. My second ever quilt is finished. My first one was just a jelly roll strips quilt, but this one was following a proper (beginner) quilting pattern, and I made proper blocks and sashing and I suppose you could say it’s my first ‘real’ … Continue reading →
