Machine Tying your quilt
Mitred Corners with Valerie Nesbitt

Today, we have the last part of the quilting series that we’ve enjoyed with Paula Doyle – Machine Tying your quilt. It’s a great idea for everyone, but if you are one of those lucky people to have a machine with lots of different stitches on it, you might like to think about using a single motive – such as a flower or star –  in the same way that Paula has; and think about how brilliant this would be in the centre square of a log cabin ; and then think about using a variegated thread ! How exciting could that be – and possibly quicker too Watch Now+

And Val shows you her own simple way of creating mitred corners for quilts and borders  with the help of an iron. (and you know how Val loves easy!!) Watch Now+

iPad / iPhone Update

If your iPad or iPhone is affected by the Apple bug from the latest update (iOS9.3) (you’ll get a message that tells you that your privacy settings are stopping you from viewing the video), then we have some good news.

Whilst Apple are working on a fix for the problem (iOS9.3.2), we have found that you can use the PUFFIN Browser, which you can download from the App store on your iPad or iPhone. It works just like your normal browser,  but if you need help using it, please do contact us.

Otherwise, we recommend: If you do experience this difficulty, if you have another device eg a computer or other phone / tablet please use this to view our videos until the Apple update comes through.

Happy Sewing
