I want to join since we don't have to do any sewing!

My favorite color is Blue!

And I could really use some hand quilting thread or there is something I have been wondering about and not real sure what it's called. You mark a quilt with a stencil and it uses chalk but it's not the roll pen. It's a pounce something or other. Don't know where can I get one and what is it called, so I could use one of those too!

Looking forward to this one!

SIGN ME UP!!! My favorite color is RED, RED, RED!! ' Any notion will be welcome.

Cindy, you have my info.

Sherry, it's called a Pounce Pad. They are really neat. I made my own using muslin and sidewalk chalk. I used the "fine" grater and grated the chalk then used a funnel to pour it into the muslin bag. I basted the opening so that I could re-open it when I need to fill it again. (It's what I call my "poor mans pounce"!!!!!)

Can I play please?  I'll give ya'all a hundred guesses what color is my fav - first 99 don't count...     I can use about any notion I suppose - can always use bobbins, but they have to be for a Janome machine (they're not expensive - clear plastic). 

So make mine PINK and bobbins or any gadget.

Hi Cindy,

Please sign me up for this one! A no sew swap is perfect for just after Christmas

My favourite colour is blue, but is quickly followed by red if that makes it easier. As for notions, I always need pins and hand sewing needles, so either would be perfect.

Thank you for organizing this and Thank you Gerda for assisting

Sue x 

(I think you have my details, am I right?)
