Read this story sent to us by Carol Clasper about how she and some friends were able to give back with quilting and some planning with their EQ6. “I just wanted to share a story with you.

Carol Skrube, from Sheboygan, WI, makes these cute ornaments and holiday momentos for her kids using the EQ Printable Farbics. She writes, “Last Christmas I made snowman ornaments using Debbie Mumm clip art and my family and friends photos. For Easter I used bunnies I had done in EQ and their photos. I use the fabric for labels that I design in EQ and I especially like the cotton lawn, it is so nice to sew in.” We just love how perfect those baby cheeks are on the snow man!
