Quilting Bees 101 -- Helpful Hints

>> Monday, March 1, 2010

A collection of all the different hints and tricks we share with each other that don't really fit into any of the other categories. They can be about anything - running a bee, contributing to a bee, organizing your fabrics, etc.

1. Whenever I get a new envelope of fabric in the mail, I immediately write on the outside of it: 1) the bee it's from 2) the month it's for 3) the flickr name of the person it's for. For example: "PTQB / November / stitches&scissors" This has proven to be very valuable as I tend to work on one than one block at a time & don't want the blocks getting mixed up.

2. When I mail fabric or a completed block I put it in a ziploc bag and include the recipient's name and address on an index card inside the bag. That way if the outer envelope is damaged or the fabric baggie becomes separated from the envelope during mailing, the mail service can still deliver with one of those "We're sorry your mail was damaged" messages. -- Marblesbestfriend

3. Be respectful of copyright.  Unless you have permission from the author - it's never OK to print out patterns and send them to your bee members.  Send them a link to their online tutorial instead.

If you have a hint you want to share, post a comment or email me and I'll post it along with a link back to your site/Flickr!
