I have decided to keep it simple and have eliminated any shipping fees. However, in exchange and because my prices have been the same for over 20 years - I have increased the price of all patterns(by just $1.00). A kit price includes both pattern and fabric, and those have also gone up just the one dollar. That means the fabric price has remained as it was. As you can imagine, the cost of paper, ink and plastic bags has been steadily rising over these 20+ years. It was just time to account for that. However, in choosing to also do free shipping, I feel it's a wash for ya'll! ^_^
Free Applique Tips
For free hand applique' pattern tips see link near bottom of this page. I recently added a second page with some details for actually doing the applique stitch.
One of my favorites!
And Tammy did her magic with dye so I could make them look as real as possible. These were drawn from photos of my tree - which, I'm sad to say, did not make it thru the drought! So - here it is "forever" ^_^ You will find it in "Favorite Flowers"
I could almost call this a miracle. For those who have been in one of my classes, it is the answer to your requests. It is the class in written form and as a kind of 'workbook'. The pattern is included - the same one I use in classes. It is not glitzy or fancy. It is self-published and bound so that you can lay it flat if you want to look at pictures and/or read while you are stitching. If you have not taken the class, I say it is a great tool for anyone - either to learn how, or to improve, with regard to hand, needle turn applique. If you find the tips and blog useful, why not just go for (as Dr. Dyer would say) "The Whole Enchilada" and buy the book?! It's all in there - plus way more!
If you are wanting to take a class:
High Sierra Quilters - that's the place to come for a class from me!! Right here in Placerville! And they have just moved to a lovely and spacious new location! But, don't fret! It's just a little ways from where they were before! Still on the East side of town, (heading East) on Hwy 50, you have 2 choices. You can get off at the Broadway Exit and turn left at the end of the ramp. I find it often a bit tricky to turn left there traffic-wise. So you could still get off at Schnell School Rd., turn right at end of ramp and then right at the 3-way stop just a few yards away. It will then be on your right a short ways back up Broadway - across from Savemart. Sooo, if you have been wanting to take a class from me -we can get that set up!! Send me an email with your phone number and we can pick a date that works for you to take a 'day trip'. Yes, it can definitly be a 'one-on-one'. And the class area is so large, pretty sure we can find a space no matter what else might be going on.
Just to give you something to smile about while you are here
