The CRAFTSY winner is….


And the winner of the 50% off coupon and 1/4 yard of my luscious hand dyed fabric is….


My earliest memory of embroidery was with my grandmother when I was about 5 years old. I can remember the room in her house and exactly where I was sitting. She sat beside me and carefully helped me and then left me to continue the stitching while she went to make tea or something. When she returned I proudly held up what I had done and discovered that I had sewed my dress to the project. I was so upset, but what I remember the most was her very calming and soothing voice telling me that it was alright, anything with fabric and a needle could easily be fixed. I don't remember what happened with that piece of embroidery, but I'll never forget that voice telling me, "Don't worry, anything can be fixed with fabric and a needle." It's what carries me through to this day as I work on projects that might not turn out quite the way I want them to and it's the message that I'm passing on to my granddaughter as well. I'm sure it's why I love fabric and sewing so very much. Anything can be fixed!

I love that antidote!!

I wish more girls were learning sewing skills these days along with playing sports, doing math and science and eventually becoming CEO’s.

Deb please send me your snail mail address and I will get the coupon and the 1/4 yard of rainbow gradation in the mail to you so you can start something wonderful during these cold winter months.

Happy Quilting today!!

Thanks for sharing my Craftsy class with the world Frieda. You are a true friend!
And congratulations to the lucky winner. I love her story.
Now all we need is you, Frieda, as a Craftsy teacher!

I'm so thrilled to be the winner and as soon as I receive my coupon I'll be signing up for Laura's class! Can't wait! It looks to be great fun and yes, we've sent letters to Craftsy to get Frieda on there! It's such a great platform and I so much love the no deadline approach and being able to go back and review as much as you want! Frieda, you'd be great!
