Hey, guys!

Just for fun, I created and ordered a TTMT t-shirt for myself! It’s been a while since I had a new one and I didn’t feel up to cutting out a stencil. I put this together using Zazzle’s clip art & text tools. I thought some fo you might enjoy having one, too. 🙂
I *think* they send a coupon for your first order if you sign up for their emails.
Anyway, just for fun…a Talk to Me Tuesday printed T-Shirt!
Full disclaimer: I do receive an affiliate fee for purchases. That’s how I bought my own shirt. I don’t want anyone thinking I’m trying to be sneaky here! ♥

TTMT for Charity!

Hello, TTMTers!

Watching our various videos this week, I couldn’t but notice that most if not all of us make quilts, hats, baby clothing, and a variety of other things to donate to various charities.

I’d like to make a list of links for each of our respective organizations so we can share here on the TTMT blog. I think it would be a great way to share what we do and it will give our viewers an easy way to connect to the charities we support.

If you’ll leave links in comments, I’ll figure out the best way to share them here on the blog. Thanks!

Thank you all for being awesome!


EDITED to add: page in progress here! Thank you for your responses. ♥

TTMT 2019 Swap/Challenge

Thank you for your feedback! This post has been edited with final swap details!

Hello, friends!

For the 2019 Swap, I want to try something completely different.

Let’s swap 2 1/2″ strips and make TTMT Jelly Rolls!

The number of 2 1/2″ strips sent to each person will depend on how many people sign up. The goal is for each person to send and receive 40 unique strips. This will be a stash buster using fabric that reflects who you are or something you like. With that in mind, I am asking that swappers not use pre-cut jelly rolls. Also, I kind of detest the pinked edges those have! 😉

Swappers will send their strips to me and I will make and ship jelly rolls. Your strips are due by the week of February 28, 2019. Jelly rolls (or possibly jelly sandwiches!) will ship no later than March.

Detailed instructions will be sent to each swapper at the beginning of January. Please don’t send ANYTHING until then. We need to know how many swappers we have first. 

  • If you are in the U.S. – please send return postage for a flat rate envelope. This can be a postage paid address label, a stamp, cash, check, or PayPal. I’m flexible. 😉 I prefer padded Flat Rate envelopes for shipping fabric, but this is your choice. I can also ship in a regular flat rate envelope.
  • If you are not in the U.S. – please send your strips and I’ll figure out the shipping on this end.
  • If shipping costs are prohibitive for you, please email me and we’ll work something out. ♥

Once all strips/jelly rolls are received by our TTMT Swappers, I challenge you to make a project with your 2 1/2″ strips by the end of 2019!  The Challenge is optional, but I think it would make for some very fun future videos! 😀

The 2019 TTMT Jelly Roll Swap & Challenge is open to anyone who has made a TTMT video and posted to the WordPress site in the last six months. TTMTers who have previously posted videos but have been absent for a while have until the end of December 2018 to share a video in order to participate in the swap. Just to reiterate, this swap/challenge is ONLY for TTMT video contributors.

Sign-ups are Closed! 🙂

The deadline to sign up is December 31, 2018.

Questions, etc, always welcome.
