The third Saturday in March is officially designated as the day to celebrate the fabulous fabric designs, though this whole month is dedicated to crafting in general. This special holiday was established in 1991 in Lincoln, Nebraska and has now become titled as a “national” holiday. Quilting is a therapeutic process with a warm and cozy result—which we can all appreciate!
Quilters are skilled artisans and should be appreciated for their incredible talent. If you’re a quilter, have you ever thought about embellishing your pieces with beads? A small touch here or there could make it pop with extra dimension. This little addition is perfect for complementing your desired pattern rather than taking away from it, so why not experiment! Here are some fun ideas we found where people used seed beads, buttons and Swarovski crystal sew-on stones!
