Basic Granny Square

Starting February 1st, 2021, every single pattern I feature will be free. If they are already free, they will stay free. If they are currently for Gold Members Only, they will be free for one day only.  Use the blue button that says "Go to HTML Version Here" to get to the pattern page. You will be able to print out the page but the PDF file is not available for free.

The Gold Members Only patterns will then be available for either $1.99 or for 20,000 points for those who have a free points account. They will always be available to Gold Members without having to redeem points. The members only pdf files for the crochet patterns will never be available for free for non Gold Members.

Laminated Cutting Guides! Learn about the brand new paper bead templates! These templates are designed for use with Guillotine cutters! They are laminated so they will last a very long time and you tape them down to the bed of the cutter and you lay your paper on top of them and move the paper down the template as you cut each strip.

Tuesday's Tip

Easy Does it Hand Sewing  If you use a needle and thread for allot of hand sewing and it seems to twist and knot on you allot. You can rub the thread onto a piece of bees wax. The wax coats the thread nicely and lets the thread glide through the fabric easily. If you are in a pinch and do not have bees wax, you can use an old stump from a candle or a matching color crayon. Bee's wax is best though cause it is all natural and will not break down your cotton thread.
