Last blog post


10 years of anything is a long time. And 2018 was my tenth year writing this blog.

It’s time to say goodbye. I have enjoyed writing here and reading your comments and I want to thank my readers for all of their kind words.

You can still see quilt and weaving photos on instagram – https://www.instagram.com/threadtalesqw/?hl=en

And my Facebook business page – https://www.facebook.com/threadtalesqw/

I am considering creating a separate FB page for showing and selling my handwovens, but haven’t sorted that all out yet.

I will leave the blog up and check in to make sure I answer any questions that may come up on the posts.

Thanks for reading all these years!


Weaving post…

I have been busy with gifts – wraps, scarves, shawls, shrugs, etc. Several people have asked if I sell my projects so I am considering building a small inventory of items after the first of the year.

Quilting by day, weaving by night. Not a bad life 😉
