Barbara Haworth-Attard and Judy Ann Sadler
When we first met through the writing community, we quickly discovered that, along with a love for books, we shared a passion for anything made by our hands. As our friendship grew, we spent many wonderful hours over tea and treats, sharing our latest quilting, knitting and embroidery creations. We’ve watched each other’s family grow, celebrated successes and comforted each other in difficult times. Now we’ve combined our creative energies to form babs ‘n’ jas designs so we can share our passions with you.

Brenda Miller - Among Brenda's Quilts

Categories: .Canada, fibre art, quilting

I am seldom between quilts, as I am seldom between books; I often begin to cast about for new projects or things to read before the last one is complete. But once in awhile, before a particularly large quilting project, as before an epic read, I do tend to pause and try to collect my strength. It is like a great inspiration of breath, prior to a dive. It is a delicious feeling, wondering what pearls one might find 'down there.'

Catherine Goetz - Distinctive Sewing ...

Categories: .Canada, sewing

Welcome to my blog. My name is Catherine, I'm 57 years old and I live in Oakvlle, Ontario. I began sewing at an early age. In fact, when I learned to sew, it was considered very cool and creative. I continue to pursue this craft because all the reasons that people have given it up for don't appear to apply to me:  (a) not enough time, (b) it's cheaper to buy than to sew and (c) fitting garments is too difficult.Most posts relate to fashion and sewing. But you will find that some are about current events. I hope you will sign up to follow my blog and add to the conversation with your comments.

Quilting thoroughly satisfies the soul, it is a means of communication, a spiritual and psychological bonding between makers. it is a means of story telling, a chronicling of histories, a series of tales of human love and sadness, triumphs and sorrows. it is an art. we can learn a great deal about quilts and their making by studying those that were made by generations before.
