It’s Time for Me to Say Goodbye.

You may have noticed that things have come to a screeching halt around here. I made the decision a few months ago that I had to close down True Up. I’m sorry for trailing off without saying anything, but it’s been difficult to come up with the right farewell post, and to finally pull the [...]

Apologies for the Slowness.

Just a quick note to let you all know that I have been overloaded lately and have had almost no time to attend to the site. If you are waiting for an email, I apologize, please bear with me! I really thought I would be able to get the Quilt Market posts done in less [...]

In Case You Missed It …

The recording of my live video chat on is here. We talked a lot about digital fabric printing (especially about the importance of color charts), I made a few embarrassing confessions, and showed how to use Illustrator’s Recolor Artwork tool.

See You Next Week.

It has been quite a week. We’re moving, which is chaotic enough. On top of it we’re treating one of our dogs for heartworm, so we have to make sure he gets no excitement through all the movers and doors opening and closing and leashes being brandished.
