We mail our gift certificates out on the day they are
ordered, but please give the post office time to get them
delivered. We try to make things simple and easy - give
us a call, the gift certificate is on its way!!!
We also wanted to leave you with a quick
list of things that might work for those last minute gifts,
hostess ideas or ideas for your quilting buddies.
Pincushions - there are a ton of cute and easy pincushions
today. Use cotton or wool and they whip up overnight.
Just remember to use the crushed walnut shells as
your filling so you don't get unwanted critters!
Wine Bottle Bags - you might have seen our Stocking
Bags in the shop. Very quick and easy and even if
your recipient isn't a wine enthusiast, they can fill
it with Christmas greens and have a wonderful arrangement!
Appliquéd Dish Towels - Simple and easy, pair
this with some of your home-made goodies and you have
a winning gift.
Slippers! - I know that it sounds weird, but think
of tucking your toosties into slippers made with flannel
and a nice cushy cotton batt (Dream Cotton Supreme
is fabulous!). We're making up a pair now and can't
wait to slip them on. Lots of nice patterns are available
to go from toddler to grandpa!!! We also have Slipper
Gripper for the bottoms!
Potholders - Everyone has a kitchen in their house
and even if they hang them on the wall for decoration,
everyone uses potholders or oven mitts. Don't forget
to use Insulbright in them to protect against burning!
There's just a few ideas - pretty basic, but quick and
fun to do. Anyone on your list would be thrilled to get
We have a new addition to the website ... basic
tutorials! We've started out with Embroidery 101 and
Wool Appliqué Basics. More will be coming...if

below the BOM on the side menu. We're not sure about this
'star' thing, but we do the best we can. Hope they will
