Helping Hand


A guide to helping with your sewing, patchwork, craft, knitting and crochet projects. From the history of patchwork to helpful hints and tips.

     
Beginner or a seasoned expert we are sure you will find something of interest for you about quilting here.  Such as, beautiful work from our customers! And Up-Coming Events and Classes or Local Craft Groups.

We value special tips that are useful for members of our community. We encourage members to send us their tips so they can be published here and shared with your fellow 'crafties'.

Patchwork has its beginnings in the dawn of time dating back to when clothing was first considered a good idea. Animal skins were stitched together to make clothing, with patches applied to worn garments to extend their life or even for decoration.

A good starting point for people interested in the quilting community is the Guild in your state.

If you are a member of any of these guilds and wish to share information through our website with members of The Blue Box community, then we welcome your email.

Our wool gallery will fill up as our community grows, offering you tips and articles of interest about wool and knitting. We encourage our members to email us any tips or articles they have written that will be of interest to other enthusiasts.

Members of The Blue Box community who are also members of wool associations are welcome to share information about those associations with us. Send us an email in our Contact Us section.
