I package product, like note cards, mini quilts and extra wide fabric sample squares.
I set it all up on the dinning room table and organize it kind of like an assembly line, but it is just me to do each step. I had pressed and rotary cut all the 5 inch squares days before. I did not do it all in one day. I am a multi-tasker, so when I need a break from quilting, I press a few pieces of extra wide fabric and then rotary cut them into the squares. Once all the squares are cut, I am ready to package them.
Remember everyone can order fabric, you don't have to be one of my quilting customers.
I carry in stock 30 extra wide fabrics and I even sell to other long arm quilters.
Some of my customers order the extra wide fabrics for borders too, so they don't have to piece the sides for a long border.
Each sample package of 30 squares sells for only $5.00 plus $2.00 shipping.
I have discontinued the 30 packs, but you can order five 5 inch squares for $1.25. That way you choose the fabrics that you want samples of. Click here to go to the fabric page.
It is a great way to see if it matches your quilt top.
They are packaged and ready to go.
One night I packaged Mini Comfort Quilts for my online store.
Wow ! I really have some exciting evenings!
These are the $4.50 Mini Comfort Quilts - available in 4 patch and 9 patch. Email me if you are interested in ordering a Mini Quilt.

Why do I write a blog?
Monday's Post about wiggle line quilting inspired Jeannie from Quilting by Jeannie . She is also a long arm quilter and she tried the wiggle line quilting and posted it on Thursday! Hop over and see it. It's great!
And that is exactly why I write a blog. I love what I do so much, I really want to inspire others to create!
Thanks for the questions... keep them coming... Marcia@craftysewing.com
Have a great weekend!
