Feather Runner Feather Runner
By: Joy Voltenburg,
Illinois, USA

This was a test of thread and fabric. I’d received a cone of Glide thread from the manufacturer and was asked to give feedback on how it performed. I used a crepe-backed satin fabric – using the shiny side up on the top and the crepe side down on the back. The thread performed wonderfully.

    We do not have this tradition but we do Yule Log, Christmas Cake and Breudher (a dutch origin cross between a bread and cake!). I love reading about the cookie bakathons though!

  2. Chantal L says:

    For some (funny) reason, the page is not downloading properly and doesn’t let me vote. All I can see is the results after 324 voters. I would have voted for Winter Wonderland too, because it is so different and it can stay on the table the entire winter. Thanks.

    Still waiting for the winners to be announced. Should I just give up?
