While teaching for a guild in Janesville last year a delightful quilter was kind enough to give me a gift ~ a schnibble bag with a twist.
Cheryl also included her own instructions. As I packed up for my most recent retreat I decided it was time to try to make one myself. So I gathered the supplies,
and I found her instructions to be very good.
When you’re not using the catcher you simply grab the top and bottom, and twist them together so that the padded bottom circle pops up into the ring that had been part of a Pringles container.
Cute, and so useful! If you’d like to make one for yourself ~ I found a video tutorial on YouTube. Click here for the step-by-step instructions!
Also… Connie sent me photos of the “tattoos” she added to her machines – and then I got to see one of them while at retreat together!
And one more thing…
I’ve heard that quite a few of my readers have visited the red barn sale in Johnson Creek over the past two years.
My friends, Lynn and Amy, continue to add new items ~ and the treasures go on and on. Mike and I were there this past weekend and I decided it was time to share their upcoming schedule for anyone interested. You simply take I94 to the Hwy 26 exit (Johnson Creek/Watertown), head south to Hwy Y and continue south to the barn.
I’d also love to remind you that we have many thrift stores and artisan shops in Watertown. And the Connection Cafe (Hwy 19 on the west side of town) has delicious coffees and sandwiches!
