I work part-time for a small 2nd generation family business. My schedule works around my husbands so one of us can always be home with the little ones.
I’m a thrifty New Englander by nature. Add to that the soaring price of quilting cotton….of course I’m rooting around in the scrap bin (mine and others! I can’t believe how exciting it is to get a bag of scrap from someone….may contain little bits for dog bed stuffing, larger scrap, fat quarters or just unloved yardage).
I’ve found working with scrap can be harder & take longer….but it’s cheaper and lends more interest to the piece.
Learning how to manage the scrap pile is an on-going battle. I hope you dive in with me and check it out!
