is the time to really get geared up for the holidays!
We can enjoy the crisp fall weather and a little slower
pace on life (hopefully!) and think towards what needs
to be done for Christmas. Open House is not only a great
opportunity for savings, but we always have kits ready
to go, time-saver projects, gift ideas and if all else
fails - items already finished and ready to go (those
aren't on sale ).
please mark your calendars with the new dates and
stop in for some refreshments and a fun time!
added several new
fall and holiday kits to the website, so
stop and take a look at those. There are some really nice
we are featuring and you know how handy those come in
at this time of the year.
also be adding wool kits to the website in the next
couple of weeks. It seems like our wool "corner"
is expanding regularly! We have some beautiful hand-dyed
wool pieces (both tonal and textures) that are done
by a local (Pennsylvania) artist and lots of textured
wools for the primitive woolies. The kits are the
newest addition. We're packaging them ourselves
to keep the price reasonable. We also have the Valdani
variegated perle cottons for stitching. If you haven't
used them, try 1 spool and tell us you don't love
them! If you haven't tried wool appliqué,
we're also putting together a little tutorial that
we can email you to get a head start.
As usual, we get our daily delivery from UPS and some
wonderful fabric lines have arrived.
a peek at Castlewood from Jan Patek of Moda fabrics
(we are in the middle of a topper kit from this line and
it showcases these fall fabrics so well. It's called Medallion
Star, so keep an eye out for that shortly.
is another beautiful line from Red Rooster from a new
designer - Gail Pan from Australia. We actually had the
pleasure of meeting Gail when she was traveling from Niagara
Falls to Pittsburg for Quilt Market this past spring.
She is absolutely charming and you gotta love the accent!
She also has a new book from Martingale called Patchwork
Loves Embroidery. Anyways, she has very cute stuff and
we have a project in the works for that one also. Stay
tuned for the Baskets
in Bloom project ...
(Gail's the one in the middle)
don't forget the change in date for the Open House. We'll
send out another quick email in a couple of weeks just
as a final reminder. We would hate to have you show up
on the wrong day!
