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.

Daily Update - March 6, 2022
I am still working on Inventory. I want to make enough inventory ahead so that I can concentrate more on making quilt blocks, quilts, videos and other projects, over the spring and summer.
I have just ordered a specially made custom die to make Pre-Cut Strips! The size of these strips is the same size I use to make the stabilizer beads for the adjustable length paper bead rollers. 3/8" at the wide end, 1/8" at the narrow end and 8.5" long. I will be using this die to cut the stabilizer beads and also paper bead strips you can purchase! Just think, the strips will be die cut so all of them in the package will be exactly the same size. I plan to not only offer them in different types of paper but also stiffened cotton fabric! If they sell well, I may order another die for another size Pre-Cut strip. Are you interested? Let me know what size you would like. Please use the Contact Us button at the top of the page. Do not be afraid to send me an email. It will generate an email you can send to me from your own email account. It will not have a form on the page like it used to have.
What am I Doing?
I am working on a series of Quilt Block Videos done in the Quilt as You Piece method. When I am done, there should be 30 quilt blocks that I will then put together with sashing in between the blocks. I do plan to make a video of putting the quilt together. This is the primary way I make quilts.
The quilt in the photo is the front of the quilt block, the back is the same pattern, just different fabrics. The patterns and materials list are on the site as well, the same day I post the video I make for each block. The very first block, Five Strip Rail Fence is free for everyone, no points needed and no membership needed. Most of the rest of the blocks for this quilt will be for Members. You can get them with points or for $1.99 each or as a Gold member, you will not need to redeem points or pay anything for the PDF files.

This serving tray mat is designed to fit the serving trays found at fast food restaurants. The trays can be purchased on Amazon.com. The pattern stitch is based on the Wheatsheaf stitch in the 1986-1992 version of the "Harmony Guide to Crocheting" pg 51. The red tray in the photo is from The Schuss Cafe restaurant located at Sugarloaf, a ski resort, in Maine, from the 1950s! By the way, my grandparents used to own the restaurant until the mid 1970's. I also worked there, at the restaurant, in February 1983.
