What's New in April 2018                

Easter:   Closed Easter Sunday April 1
                Open Easter Monday April 2, 10 am to 5 pm

July Shop Hop

We are participating in the July Shop Hop again this year.  Check out the website to see who is participating, the prizes and the map.  http://thejulyshophop.com Like us on Facebook for news at July Shop Hop.  The map is great for planning your route!  The passports are in production and will be available soon.
The theme will be revealed July 3 when we open.  Each of the 15 participating quilt shops will have a quilt made with the free block from each shop.  We have no clue as to what the others are making but I have an idea for our quilt and will work on it in secret: the hardest part!  We are working on making kits for our free block but no hints are available.

New Fabric

Fabric was slow coming in March but there are some you may want to check out on the Facebook page or in the store:

‘Lilac Ridge’ by Jan Patek for Moda in lovely lilac and cream

‘Kelmscott’ by Morris & Co for Free Spirit in William Morris tradition

‘Sunshine Garden’ by Darlene Zimmerman for Robert Kaufman in spring yellow, white and blue.  Watch for our ‘Dottie’ store sample on Facebook.

Ombres of many colours.  We are working on a kit for ‘Gradient Glow’.

Mammoth Flannel by Robert Kaufman.  Perfect plaids for rag and more modern quilts.

New Patterns

Brenda Miller, my friend and fabulous bag designer, has several new patterns.

‘Organizer Duo’       Just in time for travel weather to keep your bits organized

‘Norfolk Bag’            The perfect bag to hold what you need without bringing everything

‘Zip & Flip’                 A shoulder sling bag softly structured exterior bag

Recently I made a ‘Classic Fold-over Clutch’ using William Morris fabric for a classic look.  Now we have some metallic Essex fabric which will make a more formal sparkly clutch. 

Row by Row Experience 2018

We are not participating this year.  Customer interest has declined each year.  This year there are multiple options for store ‘rows’ and I didn’t have an idea to suit the theme.  Maybe we will next year.
