I know I know, I have let this website get a bit old with out adding new content for three years!

I will confess that I have left Bettiemarie slowly die and I went of and concentrated on other aspects of my life. But I want that to change! Bettiemarie was one of the first projects I started coming out of college and I want to breath life into it. I am thinking I am going to make a slow start with this. Slowly clearing out the cobwebs and wiping of the dust.

I plan to do this by slowly adding to my sew’opedia and continue posting about some sewing adventures. I will have to pull out some of my sewing projects and finish them with you!

A new start is happening! Lets do this

sew’opedia: Quilting hand needle


Also known as betweens, These are a short thin needle with a small, rounded eye for thread. Quilting needles are great for small, detailed stitching, such as quilting, of course. Their thinness and small eye help them pass easily through heavyweight fabrics, like denim or tweed.

sew’opedia: Easy Threading hand needle


These needles have an tiny slit on the side of the needles, or on the top if the eye, so that by sliding the thread against the slit it allows the thread to slide into the eye of the needle. These needles are ideal for partially sighted or people who have difficulty threading needles.
