Today is March 1, and it’s going to be a month of celebrations and fun. With new and different show casings of crafts.
It’s pretty obvious, I am a quilter, but, before I was a quilter, I was also into a sewing, and crafts. I have even taught classes in sewing and crafting when we lived in Cumberland, MD at So-Fro Fabrics. I really loved it. My first experience with crafting was when I was a young teen, and went to a 4-H meeting where they were doing pottery on the wheel. From that day, and to this, I still love pottery. While I’ve never purchased a potters wheel and kiln, I’ve had the opportunity to dabble with them over the years. Many crafts are done with fabric, and this is where a quilter draws on that knowledge. Probably the first “craft” type items we have seen were done in quilting are Crazy Quilts. Crazy Quilts are the epitomy of a craft type item, which also happens to be a quilt. With Crazy Quilts, you can use charms, buttons, embroidery, cross stitch, netting, lace, just about any type of texture and embellishment and have so much fun with it. As time passed, it also came into more of the “art” type quilts we see today along with wearables. Terial Magic is perfect for these types of projects.
