editor’s note a stitch in time

My grandmothers were both prolific quilters, but quilting skipped my mother’s generation. When she started sewing, quilting was considered old-fashioned. So, my friends and I had to teach ourselves when we decided to take up quilting at a young age. YouTube videos didn’t exist in those days, but quilting was gaining in popularity again, and we figured we’d find someone to help us if we got stuck. The public library had a great how-to book for beginners, so we plunged in at Chapter 1. We drew names to decide who got the first quilt. I was the lucky winner, and chose a traditional geometric pattern by the name of Sherman’s March, or Double Monkey Wrench. (You can find instructions to make this block on Page 44.) Seven of us started meeting once a…

Stained Glass Snowflake Kimberly Giuffrida, via email I’ve been doing stained glass for nearly two years now, and for me the best way to learn is to find pictures of designs I like, and then figure out how they were made. Being a graphic designer, I’m able to look at a design and draw up a pattern. At this point, I consider myself a craftsman rather than an artist. For this particular piece, I drew up a pattern based on one I saw online, modifying the design a bit. From there, I cut 120 pieces by cutting each shape six times. After that, I used a glass grinder to smooth and tweak each piece to fit. To assemble the snowflake, I used the copper foil method and foiled around each piece so that…

Ballew Clark County, Arkansas THE FARM will yield a good living and more to everyone who will give it a chance. No able-bodied farmer should ever have grocery bills that “p’s” will not pay. By “p’s” I mean potatoes, peanuts, popcorn, pumpkins, peppers, poultry, pigs, peaches, plums, pears, and peas. Of course, there are exceptions to this rule when “bad luck” hits a fellow. But no honest-to-goodness farmer will…
