Tip of the month - Pat
Pat did an experiment starching fabric before cutting. She showed samples of fabric using 1/3 liquid starch & 2/3 water and 1/2 starch & 1/2 water. The 1/2 water had a much nicer outcome when cutting.
She also showed off using and empty parmesan cheese container to put yarn or ribbon in for couching. The yarn/ribbon would come up through one of the holes in the shaker container.
Rachel M showed off a diy portable design wall that she hangs using cup hooks on the wall.
New Charity Block & Demo:
Rachel demo'ed how to do a disappearing 9 patch block which will be the new charity block of the month.
