Anne said she loves her trolley needle. I'd never heard of it so wrote her back and asked her to tell me more. Here's what she said...
"It is indeed a stiletto, but rather than having to hold it, it is simply and extension of one of your fingers. That means all your fingers and thumb are completely free to move and help manipulate the fabric"
This is what it looks like. She said that she uses it when doing the starch method of applique. I think I see one in my future.
Since the wool in the giveaway came from Blackberry Primitives, I thought you might like to see a bit of their booth. I wasn't able to get back over there to take pictures until the last day and most of their wool was gone, but here's a look. And....no..., it wasn't me who bought it all!!!
Another booth with fabulous wool was Weeks Dye Works.
Just look at these wonderful samples.
Oh my....floss and more floss.
And here's what's left at the Valdani booth. I wish I had gotten pictures the first day because it was so beautiful with all the colors lined up and filling the racks.
There's still more to come. It may take me until next quilt market to finally show you everything. I also have another giveaway, so there's still a chance to win.
