1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: Unwanted fabric? on: February 21, 2011 03:41:46 PM
All of these are great suggestions.  I donate mine to my favorite thrift shop, they have a crafts section.
  A local 4-H extension might be able to take it too!

I agree!  Buy the biggest one you can fit on your workspace.  Trust me on this (I started with a 6" x 8" and have moved up in size three times after getting frustrated)!
3  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: Best Iron For The Money? on: February 16, 2011 06:01:12 PM
I'm a quilter, and I've found over the last 10 years that it doesn't matter what kind of iron I buy, it starts to leak or die within about 12 months.  After spending a ton of money on a high-end Rowenta and having the same thing happen, I just buy $20 irons and replace them. 
It might be different for other kinds of sewing, though.  When I quilt, my iron is *always* on, for many hours at a time.  I tend to burn out the heating elements.  I'd be interested to hear some garment sewers weigh in!
4  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Anyone tried Oh Fransson's Tokyo Subway Quilt? on: February 16, 2011 05:52:55 PM
Oh, I so want to but I'm afraid I will go nuts referring back to my computer every two seconds to get the layouts right.  That's sometimes how I feel about quilt alongs.
