  1. This is an amazingly generous thing to do! Happy World Wide Quilting Day to one of the BEST stores in America for Quilting. I downloaded both of the Sewcialites, although I loved downloading them when they were originally released as part of the fun sew-a-long. You are amazing and so is your staff

  2. Thank you so much for all the freebies. You taught me how to quilt with the entire Beginners series and I haven’t looked back since. I am so grateful to have learned so much from you, Kimberly. Thank you!

  3. First thing in the morning, I sign on to my emails and pull yours up! Today was extra special because of the freebies, especially the flag table runner. There are several patterns that I printed out and will be busy sorting thru all my fabrics today. Thanks for your great tutorials and newsletter. I have learned so much from you and appreciate all the hard work in producing the videos.
