According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the wearing of cloth face masks along with other preventive measures can help reduce the spread of COVID-19, which continues to be an important consideration. AccuQuilt has developed 10 face mask fabric cutter dies to help quilters and sewists produce these necessary items. AccuQuilt, together with the other companies that are a part of TekBrands, is proud to be donating $100,000 to No Kid Hungry / Share Our Strength from the sale of our mask dies through August of 2020.
Depending on when you read this, Mother's Day is approaching or already here and what better way to honor the women who are a part of and influenced our quilting journey than by telling their stories. We created a Mother's Day Facebook event page where we asked quilters and quilt-lovers to tell us about their introduction to the art of sewing/making and how they are passing their passion on. We received so many amazing pictures and anecdotes of quilt histories and quilting experiences. Warm your heart with these anecdotes while we're safely social distancing.
Mother's Day is nearing and this year will be a little different than most. Social distancing for family safety means we probably won't be able to grab brunch, gather together or follow many of our usual traditions. From new mom to great grandmother, sister to aunt and all those in between, we still want to honor the influential women in our lives. Join our Mother's Day Facebook event to share stories, access special offers and stay connected while we're apart. Meanwhile, read this Mother's Day gift list to help you find the perfect gift for the women you love!
We are loving the chance to provide you with ways to be inspired while practicing safe social distancing habits. At the beginning of the year, we collaborated with Michael Miller Fabrics and their 2020 ambassador team. If you don't know what you want to quilt with your time inside, you have come to the right place. The Peek into Batiks Monthly Quilt Along will help!
