Welcome to my little sewing corner of the Web! My name is Elaine and I live in Michigan. I’ve been writing a food blog, The Italian Dish, since 2008 and I have a knitting blog, Italian Dish Knits. I also love to sew. I love to make things.
I’ve been quilting for many years, since 1992 . I started sewing years ago when my husband bought me my first sewing machine. Back then, you had to buy sewing books and patterns in the store. Now, with the internet, the amount of information, instruction and patterns that is available to anyone is simply amazing. Online fabric shops have absolutely changed how I shop for fabric. It’s a great time to be a sewer!
I traded in my 1992 Elna Diva 9000 for a Janome Skyline 5. It’s a great machine that sews beautiful stitches and I couldn’t be happier with it.
I design all of my quilts myself. I use quality cotton fabrics, 100% cotton batting and cotton thread from Italy. I machine stitch the bindings for extra durability.
If you’d like to see what is in my Shop, you can find it here.
Welcome and I look forward to sharing my sewing with you.
May your bobbin always be full,
