FAQs

Which sewing machine do you use?

I use a Singer Quantum Stylist 9960. I think it’s perfect for the sewer or quilter who frequently creates a wide variety of projects, but is also on a budget. I’ve used it for bags, quilting, apparel, and many other projects. If you want an excellent souped-up sewing machine that can provide many of the amenities of “luxury” brands, but you can’t dish out $1,000+, I would recommend picking up a Quantum Stylist 9960.

Which electronic cutting machine do you use?

I use a Cricut Maker. It cuts vinyl, paper, wood, and fabric with incredible precision. If you’re a quilter who HATES cutting all those itty bitty pieces for a complex quilt block, the Cricut Maker is your new best friend. I’ve used it to cut the pieces for an entire quilt (besides the binding and backing) recently. You can enter the size and shape of each piece into Cricut’s design software, Design Space, plug in the number of each shape you need, load up your fabric, click a button, and you’re done.

Additionally, the Maker has opened up other crafting avenues for me, such as paper crafting, using iron-on vinyl on fabric projects, and using vinyl for fabulous labels, signs, and decor.

Do you use affiliate links?

Yes, I occasionally place affiliate links in my content, such as the Amazon Affiliate program. If you click on the link and make a purchase, I earn a small commission.
