Can you believe fall is already in full swing? It feels as though we just released our spring quilt patterns and first batch of new dies last week. Because even we have a hard time keeping up with all the videos, articles and tutorials we've released, for today's post, we thought we would review some of our most popular and helpful resources from the year so far. From organization to technique, we learned a lot about the art of quilting in 2019. Can you remember these highlights?
We do live videos on Facebook all the time. It’s a wonderful way of showing you, our followers and users, all the cool things we’re doing in our Dream Studio. We often cover product announcements and quilting tips as well as live cutting and sewing demonstrations. Even better, viewers can ask our experts questions and get answers in real-time, right then and there. Unfortunately, just “liking” us on Facebook might not be enough to be notified when we go live. Follow this process and you won’t miss AccuQuilt live on Facebook ever again!

Let’s explore the history of Amish quilts!
