    Morning all! I was thinking of making a few fleece tie blankets for gifts this Christmas. My question is..what do you think is a good price for fleece? Do you know if there is ever a deal on Black Friday at JoAnn Fabrics? I have been pricing the fleece and it seems like it is going to cost...

    This is going to be my next project and I think I could sell them for a nice profit. I will make them out of flannel. What do you think? Would you pay 45 for one of these?

    These are so popular I'm sure many of you have made them. I am going to take advantage of some summer fleece sales and stock up. I have never made one, but I do grasp the concept and think it shouldn't be too hard. I was told to buy 2 yards for each side of the blanket, or, 4 yards per...

    Can anyone tell me how to make receiving blankets. I found a pattern on the internet, but my sewing machine doesn't have any fancy stitches. It does have a zigzag stitch. Can I just cut my flannel to size and zigzag around the edges? I don't want to make it double layers, just single. TIA

    We have 2 zone heating in our house (furnace upstairs and one downstairs). The one upstairs keeps cutting off because the latch on the door is broken and it won't stay shut. Our bedroom is freezing! I have sheets, a thermal blanket and 2 comforters on the bed.

    I was invited to a last-minute baby shower over the holidays. With no time to shop, all I could do was give a gift certificate, and, since I didn't want to appear cheap, I spent more than I wanted. I can knit and crochet a bit. About 38 years ago, I crocheted an afghan. And I'm knitting a...

    I haven't had an electric blanket in yrs. I'm wondering if using one to warm things up a bit before bed when I turn my thermostat down would be a happy medium or if it would be a case where any energy saved by turning down the heat would be lost by a few minutes with the electric blanket.
