Hi there from shorne in kent

Where do I find the pattern to print off
Chopsticks are great for stuffing pushers. I have those in my sewing room all the time.
Add insul-brite and make it into a trivet.

Hi from Washington State
Hi from snowy Iowa

Fold an 8.5×11″ paper in half, draw half a heart on folded side. Cut that out and symmetrical heart comes out. Waaalaa
Love your hair color
Thanks this was fun and very inspiring – checking in from Vancouver Island BC where it is trying to be sunny.
how do you do the rag edge?
Could you use pinking shears around the edge?
Where did you say the link is to download and print the project?
Hi Bev! You can download the free pattern here: https://go.craftsy.com/for-the-love-of-crafting/
I would like the pattern for the octagon cube coaster to print off.
I love the project but I love the quilt behind Colleen! Can I order the pattern?
I really appreciate your sharing of how much experimentation you took, and the results along the way!
I missed the beginning. Can I access this online later? Thanks

Sometimes I use two pins to mark the start and stop points.
If you are making several heasrts, make a bunch of hook strips all at once in one long strip. then cut it to proper length. Saves time!
I have no sound
Hi Jean, check the bottom left corner of the video player. You might have to click the mute button. Sometimes that button gets clicked!
A cookies cutter can give you a nice heart shape, too.
Great tip! Thank you, Jackie.
Can we save this for later. I am just watching and learning now and would like to come back to it to actually make it.

Hi again from Ocala, FL. Not snowing but cold for us (30’s in morning).
1st time at site
I can see chat but not video. Am I doing something wrong?
Make sure to scroll to the very top of this page. There should be a video player. You might have to click the play button to get the video started.
New to quilting. Very appreciative of your skill.
New to quilting
I’m always interested in learning new techniques.
I had a reminder that said this started in half an hour, but on the video link at the top of this page the ‘set reminder’ button indicates it doesn’t start for 7 hours. Does anyone have any clarification on this time discrepancy?
Thank you for notifying us! I just fixed the “set reminder” time on YouTube. This event starts at 2:00 PM CT.
There are 5 pages of instructions with pics you can download for free to go along with the video.
