Where Creativity is Just Plain Fun

Membership is Free!

I have decided to end the Paid Memberships Program and just go with the Points Program. If you are a paid member, you signed up for a lifetime membership and are no longer paying for memberships. I am not really making any money from new memberships so it does not make sense to keep that part of my business going. Instead, membership is going to be point based. I do not plan to change this again. My income will be from sales of Paper Bead Rollers, downloads for people who don't want to be a member, books I publish in the future on Amazon, templates and template bundles, ads on the site and YouTube revenue.

All downloads, that cost points, no matter what level you are at, will now cost 20,000 points each unless otherwise noted on the individual pages.

Pre-Cut Paper Bead Strips

Pre Cut Paper Bead Strips. One size for now. Starting today, for every order over $35.00, I will include a small packet of paper bead strips that are 3/8" at the wide end, 1/8" at the narrow end and 8-1/2" long. Orders have to be for items that I actually will send you through the postal mail myself. Items such as Slotted paper bead rollers, adjustable paper bead rollers, double hole paper bead rollers, eyelet setters and laminated templates.

In the future, I hope to find a source of paper I can use to offer you for sale at a reasonable price and so you can pick and choose which print you want.

What am I doing?

I have set aside Quilting for a Short While

I need a break from quilting for a short while. I just finished taking care of the diamond drills I bought for designing projects. It took me all week to do it. I am working on a video that shows an unboxing and the stages it takes to get them all stored into their little containers. I hope to post the video by Tuesday, July 5th at the latest. I have more diamond drills coming Wednesday but I want to get started designing the projects. I need at least another week before I get back to the Double Sided Quilt I am working on. Thank You for being patient with me.

Today's Featured Pattern

This pattern is Free on July 15th Only

The dress on this bear can be made with any color you choose to go great in any season. But what a cute look it is for the Holidays! The last 4 rounds of the skirt are worked in such a manner as to make them look woven but they are not. It is just the way the stitches are done.

Teddy Bear Christmas Dress

Now the PDF file for patterns that are not normally free are also available for free download for one day only.

Over time, as I feature a pattern each day, when it is no longer free, I will make the HTML page available to anyone who is registered on the site (Not just Gold members.) This will take time, there are over 600 Gold Member patterns on the site. I am changing them to Registered Member patterns one at a time. The PDF file of each pattern will be available for points.

From now on, new patterns, projects and printables I add to the site will still be gold level pages until they are over 2 years old. This keeps things fair to the members who actually paid for membership.
