Hi all,

I haven't been on for ages. And frankly, I haven't even done any sewing unless in a class. I'm in the midst of getting my new (larger) sewing room ready, and it's taking longer than expected. As soon as I finish painting the room, which hopefully will be next week, the room will move fast. I'm looking forward to sewing and quilting in the new room.

Actually I don't use cornstarch.

The recipe I found uses cheap vodka, water and essential oils (optional).

I figured the cost for a 18 oz bottle is LESS than $1.00

I never thought about what starch is made of,but now that you mention it,it is only cornstarch and water plus a couple of drops of essence for a nice smell.Very interesting,will have to test it out.I do not purchase cans of starch but buy the large bottles of starch which I then put a small amount in spray bottle and add water,this usually lasts for months,and the cost is only $3.69/

Has anyone tried making their own starch?
I found a recipe online for making my own and LOVE how well
how well it works.
I love the Best Press but just can't afford to buy it. So that is
what prompted to search for a recipe to make my own.

i have wandered in here on occassion, am always surprised by the lack of activity here! there are so many wonderful creative items posted here by various members along w thier beautiful quilted items. potholders, dresses, tote bags, sewing machine covers fill so many pages of members' photo albums here at My Quilt Place. let's see if 2013 can be a year of renewed activity here and at other group sites like the history and gardening sites. we as creative sewers, gardeners, quilters have so many interests and talents...let's share more!

and carolyn...that little dress is amazing and delightful! would have loved a photo of your little treasure modeling it for us here.

I would love to hear what everyone is doing. Right now I'm making summer dresses for my granddaughter.

Hi everybody,  its been awhile since I was on this site,  busy, busy, busy!

I am presently working with leather, making clutches for a client.  It is new to me and I had to read a lot about it on the internet.  Any helpful hints from you all would be appreciated.  I am learning a lot, but sometimes one expert says to do this when another says to do that!  ARGHH!!  Any helpful hints will be appreciated. 

One of these days, Deborah, I will post more pix.  Would love to see what the rest of you are doing, too.

Carolyn, I know how you feel about sewing!  Yesterday was a poopy day for me.  I have 7 totes to make, started working on one of them, and everything seemed to go wrong, couldn't find the color thread I used, made the straps too narrow, so after the 4th booboo,  I walked away for the day.

Andrea, I am sure we would love to see your work,too!  I see that we have 24 members,  where is everybody!  Lets get this going!  Love to hear from all of you!
