A tutorial for Susie's Magic Binding is available from Aunt Marti's 52 Quilts. This is a back-to-front binding that yields a look of piping at the edge of the binding on the front. Also, try Jean's Genius Binding - it's a front-to-back binding without the flange.  Both are finished with machine stitching - you need a stitch-in-the-ditch foot for your machine. No hand stitching required!

Pride City Library

Our Library has over 150 items.  They are stored on two carts at the church where we meet.  Checkout and return is easy - just write your name and the date on the card in the front of the book, then file the card in the box on the cart (file by title).  If you wish to keep the item more than one month (providing no one else is waiting to borrow the item), just "renew" it by filling in the new date.

When you click below, a .pdf file will open in a new page.  It is currently 8 pages.  This list was updated in September 2018.  It is alphabetical by author, which is the order that items are shelved on the carts.  There are a couple of Keywords to help you locate items by topic.
