Linda's News

Peachland Quilt Guild

First of all.....A BIG Thank You to the members of the Peachland Quilt Guild for sponsoring the one­-day “Live With Linda “ event in June. By all reports.... It was a smashing success with attendees coming from far and wide......even from the U.S.

As a result, I'll be doing a full day of “Jackets with Linda”......a hand's ­on sewing day Aug 17 in Peachland, where I provide the kits and 15 participants can sew and create their own Masterpieces. Cost is 20.00 for members and 25 for non members. Let me know if you want to join as the info has gone out to all the members and if there is room and you're not a member, come join us!!


Summer is a tough time to do much sewing, but there have been a lot of rainy days in this part of the woods. Perfect time for some playing with metals! This picture is of my grandaughter decorating her previously painted rocks. She got very excited about the possibilities of metals and everything to which they could be applied!! We have decorated books, boxes (jewellry boxes), Jeans, wall hangings, T shirts, shoes, phones, iPad covers, and yes even quilts!! 

There's nothing that couldn't use a bit of BLING!

Metals are so easy to apply as they are hot fix.... which means that they have glue on the underside of them and once heat is applied, it is almost an instant bond (that stays through  washing!). You can apply them with an iron or mini iron, but the simplest and most accurate is with the crystallizer (as seen in the picture ) as it concentrates the heat to exactly where you need it and leaves no iron marks on your project.
Here's more pictures of how we've used them...... and by the way check out many 
ready made t-shirts/garments in the stores and see our same metals!


To CELEBRATE this new found FUN, we are offering a SUPER SUMMER SPECIAL SALE ON METALS !!
