    • Get your works-in-progress under control
      ~~Sherri’s system will help you conquer the start-but-don’t finish problem!
    • Make progress on long-term projects
      ~~Sherri shares how she keeps ongoing projects from being ignored for too long
    • Review your quilting library
      ~~record and refer to your list of  “must-have” books in one place

  10. Book winners and upcoming BOOK SALE NEWS!

    Posted by on February 28, 2021, in quilting & sewing

    Thank you all for following and commenting on the "Scrap School" Instagram hop the last few weeks! Congrats to the following winners of our "Scrap School" book giveaway! Thank you for sharing your comments; we enjoyed reading all of your responses and learning about the people, pets, and things that serve as your support staff.

    Winners of our "Scrap School" giveaways:

    Barb Haakonson for her comment on our Stitch This! blog: When I think of "support staff", I don’t think of just one person. There are many. I belong to several quilt groups and I leave with advice on a project (color, style, etc.), or a sewing tip or maybe even a sewing tip that might pertain to any sewing machine. Great friends, and camaraderie, this is my "support staff" person(s).

    Kim Heger for her comment on Facebook: My husband has been known to turn around and backtrack on a trip in order to take me to a quilt shop we saw in passing!

    @brotherswanda for the comment on Instagram: My two kids are definitely my support staff. I send pictures of fabric to Alaska and NYC to get their input when I can’t decide which works best in a block.

    You may have received a duplicate email of our "Scrap School" Instagram hop announcement late last week. We’re sorry for the duplication! We updated our settings because we’re getting ready to announce our Spring 2021 Book Sale and it triggered a re-send. Ohhhh, exciting! Stay tuned and make sure to check your email for our blog posts, and follow us on Facebook and Instagram to get the link for our book sale that starts on Tuesday, March 2, 2021….Until then, happy stitching! 🙂
