Hunter's Design Studio Back to School Blog Hop
Hello! I'm so happy that you stopped by!
My wonderful friend, Sam Hunter, is hosting a fabulous Back to School Blog Hop, which is kicking off today. As all of our kiddos, and grand-kiddos, are heading back to school, Sam thought it would be great fun for us to head back too and brush up on some of our quilting skills as well as learn some new tips and tricks. Sam has put together a pretty fabulous line up of sewing and quilting pros to share their favorite and most helpful techniques and methods to empower you keep creating what you love. I'll be a guest blogger on September 27th, when I'll share "The Power of Glue Basting" (one of my favorite topics). Between now and then, I'll be hopping around to brush up on my own skills.
