Ideas, bad and good ...
When it comes to the "milk crate challenge" we say, don't participate, it's a bad idea.

Apparently, youngsters are climbing on pyramids of milk crates with the upper-most tier being wobbly enough to nearly ensure a fall and a broken bone or three.

A good idea, if you're able, is to donate your under-used machine.

(pictured at left are the 2 dozen machines YOU purchased to donate!)
Another good idea ...
Is to reduce, reuse and recycle.

Your rotary blades can be turned in at the front desk. Jeremi will resharpen them and we'll put them back out, better than new.

Packs of recycled/sharpened sets of 5 are just $18.54. If you prefer new, we still sell them for just a dollar over wholesale. There's one that's taped shut -- used for the photo at left. Jeremi's resharpened blade is on the left -- note the higher polish versus the "new" blade.

Sharper than new. Watch for upcoming video on the process.

What you hear
is not a test
Originally for embroidery designs for Kimberbell classes, we bought a big batch to bring the price down. If you youngsters need a place to store your infernal bippity boppity music, this will work.

The original "Bippity Boppity" music was from Cinderella. Whether Hip Hop resembles that is up to the listener. The song that purports to give Hip Hop its name is Rapper's Delight by Sugar Hill Gang. (A snip here done by the great Ellen Albertini Dow).

Botanicals is in, featuring birds and plants and more. A muted palette that will lend itself to a project for a nature lover or gardener.

A pressing matter, a hot item
The much-loved felt pressing pads are back in stock. They help speed your pressing. A couple of sizes to choose from. Because of the wool's insulating properties, it's almost like ironing both sides at once.
