On our recent trip to NYC, Mere, Lupine and I visited The City Quilter, Meredith’s store that she managed before she moved to Portland. We all picked up some fun fabric that we hadn’t seen locally, and we found this gem that had only a couple of yards left on it. Of course we all … Continued
Hemmer feet are remarkable little inventions. If you’ve ever tried to take the time pressing and turning a hem as small as 1/8″, these feet will be a revelation.
It has been a chilly summer here in PDX. Except for yesterday! Finally the temps are climbing, and with it brings the urge for perfect summer clothing. Complete with comfort, style, and ease. Luckily, I have been eyeballing the Wiksten Tank for some time, since last summer I think. And after our little trip out … Continued
Every other week, we profile one of our customers to find out a little bit about their sewing life. This week the MD Sewist Spotlight is on Toni Carmean.
I had the supreme privilege of attending Denyse Schmidt’s workshop at PNCA this past weekend. After she graciously stopped by MD for the book signing and trunk show Friday night, she was prepared bright and early Saturday to lead us breaking down and reimagining a traditional quilt block.

We are also about to wrap up our Trade-In Event, so don’t miss the chance to get out … Continued

Way back last spring, Michelle and I were filmed for an online TV production featuring Ricky Tims and Alex Anderson. It was such a while back that we nearly forgot all about it, until a few weeks ago we heard from the producer letting us know our episode was available to view!
Every summer, BERNINA hosts a “convention” of sorts–part training session, part new product release, part networking, part fun times. BERNINA University 2012 (or as I like to call it–Camp BU) was held last week in Washington DC. Lupine, Michelle, and I trekked all the way across the country while fearless Erica stayed here holding down … Continued
