Then you are the winner.  Email me your address so I can send it right away.  jill@jillilystudio.com

I picked up a few magazines last week.  These are two of my favorites.  The Stitch magazine is awesome.  This issue has lots of tips on working with wool and some wonderful projects.  And we all know and love McCalls Quilting, it's awesome, too.


 The best part for me was the nice little spot about my Poke-A-Dots in each issue:

 Isn't that great!  I am happy to get the publicity!  Earlier this summer, Beth Hayes, the editor of McCalls Quilting took a quilting tour to Ireland.  They all had a wonderful time, and Beth gave each traveler some of my Poke-A-Dots so they could do their hand stitching.  She said they loved them, so they did a little feature in the next issue of her magazine.

Are you using the Poke-A-Dots to do your hand stitching?  What do you use them for?

I love them...I use them most when I'm hand stitching binding down. They're wonderful!

I just got them after listening to your podcast with APQ! I am beginning to handstitch a large quilt and really liked it when I tried it.

In teaching my daughter to sew, the thimbles were too big. So I gave her a poke-a-dot. Works perfectly and she feels authentic.
