Want to whip up a quick and easy handmade gift? Try my stenciled and stitched business card holders! The directions are in today’s Cloth Paper Scissors Today e-mail newsletter. The project will be featured in the upcoming season of Quilting Arts TV (series 700).

The 700 series of Quilting Arts TV is now available for pre-order, and is expected to be available at the end of the year, so if your public TV station doesn’t carry it, you can still see all the great episodes by ordering the DVD. I’m featured in three episodes.
