This was my first time making a quilting project using strip and tube piecing. Sew + quilt with me while constructing a fun quilted table runner in Kate Spain’s Paradiso fabric line (jelly roll) by Moda and a shocking pink Kona solid backing.
Do you feel the cost of sewing machines, fabric, notions, and supplies is prohibitive to both novice and experienced sewing enthusiasts?
Do you follow the latest sewing trends in patterns, fabrics, styles? Or do you prefer to stick with more classic/traditional, or offbeat sewing projects?
Whether we like it or not, the sewing community has a bit of a dilemma – we NEED more people sewing (particularly younger people and males) to keep this industry alive and sustainable.
