Kathryn's Korner is a small thirft store packed with stuff... and you'll never get anything cheaper, items are $1 each.  Plus, all of the money goes to a non-profit helping homeless women and children. 

It's hard to find.  There is a small street called Lawrence between 4th and 5th streets.  The store is on Lawrence just south of  Master (maybe 2 blocks north of Girard).  It is across from the loft apts and has a brown door.  There is a small black and white sign attached to the building since it isn't a normal store front.  Hours are Monday-Friday from 10-2.

It's a hidden gem!

Hello Craftsters,

I'd love a penpal!  I don't think I've had one since I got an address off of the children's menu at a restaurant sometime in first grade.  I've recently moved, so the idea of getting mail addressed to me and not "current resident" is also a plus.

About me:
My name is Nicole.  I've recently moved from a city in Pennsylvania to a very rural area in Pennsylvania.  At first I hated it.  I tried to live city life in the non-city.  Now, I'm certain I won't stay here longer than a year, but I'm going to explore all of the things that make rural life unique.

I've been vegetarian for a little over 10 years (I'm 24 now).
I like snowboarding, rock-n-roll music, hula hooping, diners, making things and helping people. 

Hope to hear from someone soon!

I'm not a far drive from Wilkes-Barre and would totally love to start up a craft circle or S'n'B.  Contact me and we'll get things started.

I love the colors.

If you want an easy way to quilt it, I would do the tie method.  not sure exactly what you call that.

Just lay your batting behing your top.  Lay your backing on top of the quilt top, with right sides facing.  Stitch almost all the way around the outside, leaving a way to turn it out.  Turn it out.  Hand stitch the hole closed.  Use yarn or floss to make little knots in the squares or in the corners of the squares. 

Great first time.  You should try a triangle cut top.

Thank you!  I was a little worried about how to quilt it, but that sounds like something I can handle, even at my newbie stage.

Thanks!  As you can see, the squares don't match up perfectly.  I'm used to the immediate-gratification crafts so I got a little impatient.  But now I can use a machine faster so I'll be better prepaired for round 2.

Behold, my first attempt at sewing! 
It has not achieved quilt status because there is no backing or fluff to it, but I think it adds some cheery color.

Did you use a pattern and if so, what one?
