 Article Title :: How To Make Mug Rugs
 
It's easy to give your home a country accent with mug rugs. These little 9-patch coasters are just the thing next time neighbors drop by for coffee. Two inch squares of light and dark fabrics are all you need for the top. Three squares across and three rows down. Sew the rows together alternating colours. Cut a piece of batting and a co-ordinating backing the same size as the top. Layer with batting on bottom, backing right side up and top wrong side up. Stitch around entire outside edge leaving an opening to turn. Turn right side out and gently poke out your corners. Then stitch opening closed. A nice gift for someone when it co-ordinates with their kitchen.   (read full article)

 Article Title :: How To Make Satin Pillowcase for Mother's Day
 
This is a super quick easy sewing idea for a last minute Mother's Day gift. It will take about 10 minutes and even the youngest seamstress can make one of these up in no time. A very nice gift too! The satin should be polyester satin (totally washable and throw in the dryer). The satin is smooth, and for those who love to have their hair done, this will allow you to keep the style a little longer. The satin does not ruffle or fight against the "do." Simply measure a pillow case you have on hand. Allow for 5/8" seam allowances and a deep hem at the opening. Cut 2 pces. of satin the size of your pillow case. Put right sides together and stitch around 3 sides. Turn hem at open end and add lace  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Power Tool Safety
 
There are a number of things that every wood worker needs to know when they are working with power tools (to a lessor extent, hand tools). Some things are plainly obvious but others are often overlooked. On the serious side, planning ahead may be what save your life. Some of the power tools available are very powerful and often rotate at extremely high speeds. Hard carbide has very little trouble with soft flesh. I have worked in remote areas where it was several hours to the hospital and safety was an absolute priority. Remember what might be obvious now may become very clouded when injured and you are in shock. The list below (not necessarily in order of importance) will greatly reduc  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Choosing Project Wood
 
General Lumber is available in 2 main categories, hardwood and softwood. Quite simply, hardwood is harvested from any deciduous (leaf bearing) tree. While softwood is from coniferous or needle producing trees. However a wood worker also needs to decide if an engineered wood product like plywood is better suited for the job. We will demystify the these 3 classifications by taking a close look at the 3 main choices a wood worker has to face when buying project wood. Hardwood Looking at hardwoods first, it is important to remember that these classifications really have no bearing on the true hardness of the wood, not all hardwoods are "hard". Species like poplar are much softer then pine e  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Sewing As A Part Time Income
 
Many of us have contemplated sewing for a source of part-time income. I, myself sold children's designs for a few years, along with doing repairs and alterations. I found it very satisfying, but hardly a dependable source of income. Part of the reason for this I think, was the ever present threat of someone else doing the same work for less. Many women find it hard to charge a decent amount for their work. A lady in our community constructed an unlined jacket for someone for ten dollars. I was made to look like a very high priced villain. A simple alteration costs more than that. If you are contemplating sewing for any sort of income, please check around to what others are charging. You   (read full article)

 Article Title :: Preparing Your New Sewing Machine to Sew
 
A few weeks ago I wrote a column on how to choose your sewing machine. If you have made your choice, we will continue on with getting your machine ready to sew. Threading the machine is something that is pretty basic, yet a little different on every machine. It is VERY important to refer to your manual when first learning the procedure. If the threading isn't correct, nothing else will work either. Here is a basic rundown of threading a sewing machine. Remember, each machine is different. This is just the general idea. 1. Put your spool of thread on the spindle on top of the machine. 1a. A vertical spindle or post - position the spool so that the thread runs clockwise as you sew. 1b.   (read full article)

 Article Title :: How To Choose a Sewing Machine
 
You have finally come to the conclusion that you need or want a sewing machine. Now, what is on the market and how do you make the right decision? There are many brands of machines out there and everyone boasts different features. Some machines appeal to quilters, others want you to embroider everything including the toilet seat and the shower curtain. Searching for the right machine is going to take some time. Shopping for a new machine can make your head spin. The girls on my boards discuss which machine is best every time someone needs a new one. We all know the name brands but I am not going to suggest one, that decision is yours. It's a personal one and an important one. I will, how  (read full article)
