While in Houston for Quilt Festival, I met Rachel Hirsch and we talked about printable fabrics and some great uses for them.

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. I was teaching at the LQS and one of my students, Claire Wenham, had just returned from a trip to Nepal. Whilst there she saw a school for deaf children which was poorly resourced.
