Beautiful selection of fabrics and supplies. She hosts classes and you are guaranteed a great time shopping and learning at The Quilters Faire.
She also has a blog so check it out while you are there.
It is not a complete listing of every site that has free patterns, just some that have come to my attention. If you know of a good quilt pattern site or one that offers free tutorials let me know and I will get them listed.
I (webmistress) recently received an email from Denise M. thanking me for this page. She volunteers with a youth group, they have started a sewing and fiber arts program and they have found the information really helpful.
One of the kids in the group, Bella found the following resource on sewing and I wanted to give her a shout out because she has started teaching some of the younger kids basic sewing.
You rock Bella, keep up the great work.
