The Quilter's Kit.

Edit: This post has been modified to reflect a change in posting dates!

We all have certain things we like, don't we?

We wear comfortable grooves in our lives with our favorite things. Favorite cafes, favorite bakers, favorite running routes, favorite worn-out old undies that are probably too feral to wear but you can't throw them out because favorite.

When you get start out quilting and crafting, it can be quite overwhelming. There's so much information out there, and sometimes, not enough. A three hundred word review that may or may not be comped usually isn't enough of a recommendation; if I hear about something, I want to dig in and ask questions. I want to try it, or see someone else use it. I want the deets.

I've been kicking around the idea of taking people through my sewing room, and it seems like a perfect opportunity to start this long-running idea: The Quilter's Kit.

It's everything I use, and why I use it, in (occasionally) exhaustive detail. Hopefully this will serve not only as a personal resource, but a useful place where people who really want a certain seam ripper can have another opinion to weigh their preferences against. We're all so different - this is some of what works (and doesn't work) for me.

Whenever I get the chance, I'll post on each topic and update this list as each post goes up!

If there's anything I've missed, please let me know - I'll be adding to this masterlist as I go. And of course I would LOVE to hear what you love to use and why. :)
