Do a puzzle of Janna Thomas' quilt, Love's Labyrinth.
The QTM 2022 fundraiser marks the 10th event in the Alliance's Quilters Take Manhattan series and will be held virtually September 13-18, 2022, featuring a 3-day Main Event with optional Add-On sessions like workshops and demonstrations.
Beginning today, we will begin featuring a series of Quilters' Save Our Stories interviews, or QSOS for short. What are Quilters' Save Our Stories interviews you ask? "Quilters’ S.O.S. – Save Our Stories (QSOS) is a project of the non-profit Quilt Alliance. The project creates, through recorded interviews, a broadly accessible body of information concerning quiltmaking, both present-day and in living memory. Our archive for the original audio recordings and photographs is the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress. QSOS volunteers from across the country conduct and transcribe these interviews. We appreciate their generosity of time and dedication to the project!" First up, TQS friend and guest Susan Shie!

Why not start the season off right with both a fun project and a fashion statement. Jessica Abbott over at WeAllSew has a tutorial for making a Men's or Women's Visor to shield your smiling face and keep cool in the process. It also can make a great Father's Day gift!
