How Quilt Fabric Gets to the LQS

So far on this educational journey in the life of quilt fabric we have learned how fabric designs are picked and how those quilt fabrics are marketed to us.  Today, we are going to look at how all those fabrics are organized and ultimately shipped to our favorite local quilt shops.  I can't keep my stash organized and I don't have thousands of yards of fabric no matter what Paul tells you.  Plus if it wasn't for the folks in the warehouse making sure the right fabrics shipped we wouldn't have any quilt fabric to buy.  I don't even want to think about the horror of that.

Fiber Tuesday 149

Welcome back to Fiber Tuesday!  How was everyone's week? It has been a very busy time here in The Quilting Room.  We've had a birthday party, a two-night sleepover, and I got a new computer.  I may have created a future designer in the middle grandson.  He spent two days drawing plans and placing furniture in homes.  He even drew little quilts on the beds.  My heart may have exploded a little.

Singer 24-62 - Review

Hello everyone today we are going to add another level to our sewing experiences. Today we are highlighting one of the Singer Automatic Chain Stitch sewing machines also known as the Model 24. It differs from our other vintage sewing machines because it was designed as an Industrial sewing machine and found itself serving dual duty as a residential or domestic sewing machine with little or no special modifications. It served both markets with hand crank sewing machines as well as treadle sewing machines and electric sewing machines.

Fiber Tuesday 148

Welcome back to Fiber Tuesday!  How was everyone's week? So I'm not talking about how great the weather is again!  The next day Mother Nature reminded us that it was still winter.  It dropped 40 degrees overnight.  I blame myself for bragging about how nice it had been.  Never again!  If I do someone send me a message quick to remind me what happened the last time.

Fiber Tuesday 147

Welcome back to Fiber Tuesday!  How was everyone's week? Well winter appears to have left with February.  We went from so much ice we couldn't leave the house to mid sixties.  I'm loving the weather.  The sun helps to chase away those winter blues that were starting to set in with the storms.
