  • Hi, I am a newbie

    Hello........... I am new here, I am a quilter but also make personalised ring /keepsake pillows. A friend advised me to start selling them, to date I have only made them for friends and family.

    I cannot afford to do wedding fairs, being retired my income is limited and £130 for a stall is a bit steep when you are just starting out. I thought about doing a few local craft fairs and visiting some locak bridal shops as a starter. I make the pillows to order they take about 3 days to do each one.........embroidered with the couples names, date and place of the marriage and the ring pillows have one or two ribbons for the rings to be tied on. I can post a picute id anyone is interested, comments would be appreciated. The edge of the pillow is self material with a scalloped edge, this is time consuming, I am looking at using lace instead, although oif someone requested the scalloped edge I would do it.

    Thanks for reading..............

                          Hello and Welcome. I am a new member also.
                          I do quitling and patchwork. I have just started a new wall hanging tonight. It's taken me all night to the back ground, it's a brick wall. It will have flowers and bird's on soon I hope.
                          Your things sound lovely. Like you I will try and post some pictures when I can. do you belong any groups for your quilting.
                          Bye Pandylou
