Brother PQ1500SL – a review of sorts

I realised that I have actually bought three sewing machines whilst I’ve been over in Canada, and not reviewed any of them. I find the review posts have been some of my most popular, so I guess I’d better do something about that. My first purchase was a Brother Innovis NQ700. This is known as […]

The Quilty Math Workbook

Carrie of Carrie Actually asked for reviewers for her Quilty Math Workbook much earlier in the month, and I’m only just getting round to doing so because I am a rubbish person! This book has lots of useful tools within its 25 pages. It might not seem like a lot, but they are mostly sheets […]

Husqvarna Viking Sapphire 875Q Review

I think it’s fair to say this machine has had a thorough testing since I have now had it for 6 months, so I thought I’d summarise good points and bad, then go into a bit more detail. PROS Great price for the harp space size and features Can wind the bobbin from the needle […]

Book Review: Blanket Stitch Quilts

Firstly thank you for the emails of support for the magazine I’ve been getting. I’ve made a contender for the worlds biggest spreadsheet working out the schedule and costs and I’m hoping to launch the Kickstarter campaign in just a couple of weeks after I’ve had a meeting with the distributor and finished writing up […]
