Hobbies Up To Here Episode #6

And welcome back! It’s podcast time again! This week we’ve recorded episode #6 and it’s here for your enjoyment!IMG_6544

We’ve got some crafty events coming up! In a few weeks, Dori will be taking a trip to the coast to enjoy the Sawdust Art Festival . Can’t wait to hear all about it and hopefully see some awesome pictures of some of the art works there.Even bigger than the Sawdust Festival is the Row by Row Experience about to start this weekend!!

The Row by Row Experience started in 2011 and has spread across the US and Canada. It starts June 21 and stretches through September. You collect patterns at each shop you visit. If you are so inclined to put together a quilt using the rows you’ve collected, you can enter it to win prize! You have until October 31st to enter your finished row by row quilt.

This year’s theme is H20 which is slightly ironic for us here in Southern California due to our lack of rain hahahaha. Either way we’re excited to participate. Will you be visiting your local quilt shops and playing along?

If you are a Southern California local, there is the Southern California 17th Annual Quilters Run beginning this weekend and ending June 28th. Check the list of shops to see if your quilt shop is having their own block party.

Thanks to Melanie over at Thousand Needles for sharing this with us! Maybe we’ll see ya at a quilt shop next weekend!

Layer cakes, jelly rolls, and charm packs OH MY! My mom shares some of her purchases from The Quilt Cupboard and begins her foray into the world of precuts. Her first attempt using some precut sets will be to make the Five & Dime quilt. Check out our post about our day shopping together.

She has the Ambleside precut packs and some great Christmas packs to play with. 

My first sewing attempt didn’t pan out like I wanted but I’m determined to make something my son can wear. Maybe I’ll skip this pattern and just make my own, ha!

In the end, I made this! It’s not done yet but my son loves it! Time for handles!
