I’m still recovering from #quiltfest last week in Pennsylvania. Here’s a peek at the booth. Thanks for a great show, @quiltfest! We’ll be back!

Hand-stitching on a drawstring project bags made me very happy today. Some days I don’t take enough (or any 😩) time to stitch.

Vintage old stock #dmc pearl cotton....all from an Oregon woman’s collection. #ihavethisthingwiththread Available in my online shop.

Embroidery, yes hand embroidery! The best sellers this past week at #aqsquiltweek were all related to stitching. 😊

My son @porterprojects had fun making a doll quilt at the charity booth at #aqsquiltweek. Thanks #westmichiganquiltersguild, @juki_sewing_machines, @wonderfilspecialtythread, @havels_sewing, #reliableirons and @aqsonline for the opportunity!

That’s a wrap, #aqsgrandrapids! Thanks for the warm welcome, and hope to return next year.

Day 1 of @aqsonline #aqsgrandrapids was fun, but tiring. I’m off to bed. 😴

Block Party yesterday—an awesome NYC tradition to close the street, play games, meet the neighbors, eat BBQ, and of course...embroider!! Here are a couple of the neighbors who asked to join me in some stitching, Cornelius and Ahmed. More pictures from the block party in my stories. #tilderblockassociation #ilovemyneighborhood

Once finished this will be a small purse with a scalloped edge. I’ll be selling the pattern at #aqsquiltweek in Grand Rapids next weekend. @aqsonline

✨NEW EMBROIDERY KITS in my online shop! ✨
I met the founder of this company, Christel, this spring and fell in love with her and her embroidery kits. She has a small shop near Lyon where she designs the patterns, prints the linen/cotton fabric with erasable ink, and assembles all the kits. The designs are beautiful and the diagrams and instructions are thoughtfully produced. Also, she includes DMC (it's made in France, too) floss and a needle in each kit. Some kits also include a wooden embroidery hoop so you have absolutely everything you need to start and finish a project.

This is just the first of her line that I’ll list...there are dozens 😲 more to come! 🤩

NEW Products in Online Shop — wool felt pouches and boxes of old stock DMC pearl cotton thread. My email list subscribers got to them yesterday, but they’ve left you a few 😊! The pouches are something I’ve made for about a year, but I’ve only sold them at shows. I haven’t been able to keep up with making enough...until now because I have an ace ♠️ sewing assistant 🙌🏼! #manyhandsmakelightwork
