Need a Long Arm Quilter? Here's a link of LongArmers in PPQG!
Want to make an ironing board? Here are three links that have directions. This first one is the original link and the other two use the wild onion directions but made it better (screws instead of nails, more pictures).
These two sites use the wild onion site above as a reference:
Go to the Washington Post for an interesting article on Quilts of Valor and click on gallery. If that link doesn't work for you, go directly to the Washington Post and search for "U.S. strategy for treating troops wounded in Afghanistan, Iraq: keep them moving." (Susan Smith and Bonnie Timm submitted this link. It is awesome.)

Artist Paula Dean changes all the rules of fabric art with unexpected combinations of paint, dye and fiber. Paula’s sense of artistic freedom hails from a rich heritage and legacy of creators in Eastern Virginia and her artworks often yield surprising and captivating results! Paula’s inventive process incorporates layers of fabric, paper, paint, dye and even found objects marrying her two passions: mixed media and fiber. Her creative approach to each new piece begins with a simple plan that quickly takes its own path of originality and emotions stirred. Everything she creates carries intuition moving the piece in its own direction instead of following rules. Paula thrives on pushing design elements to the edge, adding excitement, energy, and flavor to her art. More information on Paula's art work and future workshop opportunities can be found on her new website: www.studioonthebluff.com.
