If there was ever anyone who totally exudes the love of quilting, it’s Cristy Fincher. This woman is busy. From her blog to her Craftsy class to her online shop to her many teaching engagements (including QuiltCon), on top of all of the sewing she does, Cristy is a huge presence in the quilting industry. Quilting is in her blood, and she’s completely set on keeping it there.
And while the industry is generally a nice place to hang out anyway, Cristy is perhaps the kindest person in it. You know that sweet kindergarten teacher you know? That person is a JERK compared to Cristy Fincher. One look at her blog and you’ll see that she is always willing to share what she knows, and she really wants to inspire creative excellence in other people. So with her wealth of experience in quilting and her generous spirit, I just had to ask her:
What are your top five sewing tools?
- Elmer’s Washable School Glue with a Micro Fine tip is my top sewing tool. I use it to glue baste just about anything that I’m going to sew together. Glue basting is a game changer for piecing: it’s easy, fast, and with the Micro Fine tips it’s very tidy.
