Do wine and quilting go together?


wine-charmsI am definitely not a wine connoisseur by any  means but I do like a nice White Zinfandel every now and then. And I am probably weird but I like my wine cold, and it doesn’t matter if it’s with a beef or fish dish. I even had a glass of wine last night while watching the Oscars. I didn’t see many of the movies that were nominated, but I do LOVE to see the fashions, and see the stars! One of my favorite movies last year was “Mama Mia”, but then I love musicals. Meryl Streep is such a talented and versatile actress.

I do think that wine and quilting go together quite nicely! My friend, Patti, says she always has a glass of wine before she starts machine quilting to “losen her up a bit” so her quilting will flow more easily. I like that attitude for machine quilting, but not for piecing.  Here’s a new product I just found called Wine Charms that you can purchase on my website. These can be used on a quilting retreat or at a quilting potluck to mark your own glass. Again another clever product that I wish I had thought of.
