Where Creativity is Just Plain Fun

Membership is Free!

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 am English Paper Piecing!

I am still working on a big English Paper Piecing Project, more information coming. When I post the pattern, it will not have a photo of the finished quilt, but it will have a picture of what I am making. I am stitching it by hand and I plan to post progress updates as I make it. I will let you know more when I have enough done so you can really see what I am doing.

Featured Pattern

Today's Featured Pattern

This pattern is Free on June 10th Only

This lustrous bag is great for any semi formal occasion. If you made one in white, it can be used as a wedding reception bag for the bride. And this is quick enough to make a one, for each brides maid, in the color that would match their gowns. It is made in 3 sections. The main part of the bag is made first, then the bottom is made and stitched on, then the casing and top are made last on the first round that is made.

Shell Stitch Drawstring Bag

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

Today's Featured Bead Sheet

This bead sheet is Free on June 10th Only.

This bead sheet was made with my cell phone, then imported into Paint Shop Pro to be cropped, then imported into Microsoft Publisher 365 to be made into a bead sheet. Beads made with this bead sheet would be pretty combined with any color bead with gold or silver findings in a necklace or bracelet.

Now the PDF file is also available for free download for one day only.

This Week's Tip

New Pencil Cup

Use an empty plastic juice concentrate container to make a pencil cup. Just cover it with crochet, fabric or leather! I have a couple of pencil cup patterns on the site that use a Crystal Lite container which is just about the same size as a frozen juice container.
