A visitor to our blog asked what was the basis for the price of the appraisals at the quilt show.
The appraiser sets the rate.  A verbal appraisal is $30 and that can tell you a history and dating etc..  Most people could probably get what they need from that.  The written $50 fee is for an insurance appraisal so that the quilt would be covered at full value if something happened to the quilt. 

Our 2017 program schedule is up and some quilt show dates have been added.  Check out all the wonderful things we have in store for you this year.

Join Our Facebook Group

I am in the process of changing our facebook page to a group. One of the advantages of a group is that members' posts will be more prominent, allowing for better discussion. I hope for lots of activity in this group. It is a forum to ask quilting related questions, show off your projects, and maybe even have a laugh or two. Members will need to join and then I have to approve so it does not happen immediately. I will try to keep checking so people won't have a long wait.
Here is the link to the new group.

Homemade fabric starch

Empty spray bottle
1 pint water
1-2 Tbs corn starch (more will give a stiffer starch)
2 drops essential oil (optional)

Pour the corn starch into the bottle using the funnel. Tap down if needed. Add water and essential oil. Replace bottle lid and give it a good shake. (I have found on my bottle drips just bit during this part from the force of shaking. I simply cover the spray spout with my thumb to minimize drips.)

As with anything new, if you try this, please test first on scraps.
