Very true!   I did ask  my sister for a Quilter's Planner 2020 for Christmas.   I hope I get one as I use planners all the time!  I got my main Christmas present in June when hubby bought me the Jazz II sewing machine, so I'm very happy!  It sews  like a dream!

wool ironing mat..its supposed to make pressing seams easier..and if you use steam it really sets the seam..

have not tried it yet! But I have watched videos...and it looks like it will be marvelous.

I have the first Jazz. No needle up/down. Took a long time to get used to using my foot pedal to put the needle down before I move a quilt template.  I’m happy with it now! I have a Viking Platium for piecing.

I love my Jazz II.  Funny thing is that I was used to just pushing the button on my Brother and not using the pedal as it hurt my leg.  I take my Brother for class and now that I use the Jazz at home I have to remind myself that I don't need the pedal.  I just have to remember to put my bobbin in correctly or I will have problems later on.  

That's so cool! Congrats!


If you don't get the Quilter's Planner, consider a Bullet Journal...they're all the rage now :)

Quilter’s Planner??? Are you talking about a daily/weekly scheduling planner with a quilty cover? Or a planner that records your quilty projects??  Is there a particular company that makes what you’re looking for?

Just curious

This is what I'm talking about.  It's a daily-weekly planner that records your quilty projects.  Here is a link:   They are really pricey but you can find them at Hobby Lobby for under $30.  

I like having a planner so I can keep track of what I'm doing plus it's a calendar.   Very handy.  Once I find my calendar, I'll post a picture.
