I have decided to end the Paid Memberships Program and just go with the Points Program. If you are a paid member, you signed up for a lifetime membership and are no longer paying for memberships. I am not really making any money from new memberships so it does not make sense to keep that part of my business going. Instead, membership is going to be point based. I do not plan to change this again. My income will be from sales of Paper Bead Rollers, downloads for people who don't want to be a member, books I publish in the future on Amazon, templates and template bundles, ads on the site and YouTube revenue.
All downloads, that cost points, no matter what level you are at, will now cost 20,000 points each unless otherwise noted on the individual pages.

Pre-Cut Paper Bead Strips
Pre Cut Paper Bead Strips. One size for now. More information soon. I am waiting on a new machine for the die I bought. The electric one does not like my new die. So one with a crank, The Accuquilt Go will work for the paper bead die I got custom made for me. I wasted quite a few sheets of paper and cardstock trying to get the electric one to accept my new die. It kept spitting it out backwards. So I have ordered a new crank machine so it will have no choice but to let it go through. I cannot wait to start offering Pre-cut strips.
All of the Pre-cut strips will be one size for now. I have only one die for paper bead strips. 3/8in at the wide end, 1/8in at the narrow end and 8箠n long. If they sell well, I will order another die. Reply to the email or contact me and let me know what you think!
What am I doing?
I have set aside Quilting for a Short While
I need a break from quilting for a short while. I just finished taking care of the diamond drills I bought for designing projects. It took me all week to do it. I am working on a video that shows an unboxing and the stages it takes to get them all stored into their little containers. I hope to post the video by Tuesday, July 5th at the latest. I have more diamond drills coming Wednesday but I want to get started designing the projects. I need at least another week before I get back to the Double Sided Quilt I am working on. Thank You for being patient with me.
This pattern is Free on July 04th Only
I could not resist designing my own version of a pineapple bookmark. I did see one similar to this one but not sure where. So I decided to design my own.
Now the PDF file for patterns that are not normally free are also available for free download for one day only.
Over time, as I feature a pattern each day, when it is no longer free, I will make the HTML page available to anyone who is registered on the site (Not just Gold members.) This will take time, there are over 600 Gold Member patterns on the site. I am changing them to Registered Member patterns one at a time. The PDF file of each pattern will be available for points.
From now on, new patterns, projects and printables I add to the site will still be gold level pages until they are over 2 years old. This keeps things fair to the members who actually paid for membership.
Featured Bead Sheet
This bead sheet is Free on July 04th Only.
This bead sheet would be great made into beads for the spring! Combine beads made with this bead sheet with clear or white round beads for a pretty spring or summer look.
Another use for large scraps of yarn, the type that are long enough to make actual things with, is to give it to your kid who is just learning how to crochet. That way, your child will have a practice ball of yarn to use and he/she can frog it as many times as needed without ruining a new skein of yarn.
