Material Rewards Quilt Shop in Dansville, New York

This will get you up to date on what is happening around here. Next on the list are the new items that have been coming into the shop and some that are coming soon - just like the movies!

Let's start with new FABRICS that have come in ... you can click on the links if you want to view the fabrics.

  • Hawthorn Ridge by Jan Patek, Moda fabrics is just adorable. On the last email, we have a new kit called Wednesday's Witch that is made from these fabrics and is one of Jan's designs.

  • Antique Cottons is Pam Buda's newest line and is keeping up her tradition of wonderful tonal, reproduction fabrics. The prints are amazing and the colors are nice and toasty warm.

  • Wool and Needle III is Primitive Gatherings newest line of flannels. We have the complete line and have a cozy quilt made from them, but more ideas are forming as we speak - lounge pants, pajamas, pillowcases .....

  • Needles and Pins by Lynette Anderson for RJR Fabrics. This is a very cute sewing themed line. It has her usual small prints, but the colors are tweaked a little for her. We have precuts of the line.

COMING SOON - We have 3 new lines from familiar designers that will be arriving this fall - Highland by Lynette Anderson (November), Mini Gatherings by Primitive Gatherings (any day now!) and Latimer Farms by Homestead Hearth, which we will be running a block of the month program from



thread tins

Thread Tins

Lynette got us hooked on these tins when she was here. If you embroider and use perle cotton or other balled threads, these tins are wonderful. I know when I stitch at home, my cat loves to play with the balls of thread and much to her dismay, the tin makes it so that I don't have to crawl under the couch to retrieve the thread! The tins also are magnetic, so scissors and needles stick to the tops.

mini light & magnifier

Mini Light & Magnifier

These little lights fold up so small that you can take them with you anywhere. Perfect if you need a little extra help threading needles.

door knob hangers


You can have a lot of fun with these door hangers. They kind of tell it like it is and would make a great Secret Santa gift.

fun buttons for bags

Bag Buttons

We came across these fun buttons when we were looking for a nice large decorative button for bags. There are lots of different designs.

Christmas in the Coop
The Little Red Hen. This book has everything from embroideries to wall quilts, wool projects & more. More on the rustic side, but cute, cute projects!!

Christmas Truffles
Hugs 'n Kisses. If you love embroidering, you'll love this book! The projects can be done individually or you can put them all together into an adorable wall quilt. Then there are all the truffle recipes!!!

Simply Vintage Magazine
This is a publication that comes out quarterly and is beautiful. We got our first copies today and are having a hard time peeling ourselves away from it. It will definitely be going home with me tonight for a lovely perusal!!!

Little Gatherings
Primitive Gatherings. This book will be coming in November and goes along with Lisa's new line from Moda - Mini Gatherings. The book is a collection of small quilts that will fit anywhere.

One last tidbit - we had such a great time with the Row by Row and the water theme this summer. We, and a lot of others, really liked our watermelon theme in the shop. We do have some kits left over ... and you know that watermelon will rot if left sitting around - so all kits are 1/2 off now. There are pictures below of what is still available.


We've gotten you caught up on the new Block of the Month programs that we're coming out with (scroll down on the page to see those), so moving on to what's new in the shop and upcoming events that you can put on your calendar ...

As usual, we have lots of great ideas for Christmas gift giving along with deals for those items on your own Christmas list. This is a perfect time to stock up on the basics, backings to finish up projects, etc. We've also tracked down a wonderful new cookbook from Gooseberry Patch. Not the traditional Christmas book - this one is called Autumn in a Jiffy and has lots of wonderful new recipes. We'll have a few on hand for you to sample and rejuvenate you when you get tired from shopping!!

Hopefully, we'll see you that weekend for a great time!

Please Do Not Disturb - I'm preparing for winter by quilting!

As you have seen previously, we've been sewing furiously and have new projects hung throughout the shop. Anything that is new to the website will have a NEW! sticker on it so that you can quickly see the latest additions. Here are a few and you can click through and take a peek at the rest of them ...

If The Shoe Fits Wall Quilt
We could really identify with this quilt - don't you have those days that the "witch" comes out?

Bringing In The Harvest
This kit is such a great value. You can give the runner and placemats separately, so it counts as 2 gifts, not one!!

Flying Santa Runner
We've had such a great time with Lynette Anderson's designs. You gotta admit that those reindeer are adorable!!

Be Brave, Be Strong
Quilts that honor our service men and women are always special. We have many girls who make the quilts and then donate them to their local VFW or Legion as a fundraiser!

Winter Song
Who doesn't love cardinals?? They work, not only for Christmas decorating, but also go straight through winter!

Wednesday's Witch
For those of you who love the more primitive look, this little witch fits the bill. Nothing scary about her!

Simple Things Flannel
This quilt looks like it would be hard, but the printed flower panel makes it a breeze! Nice rich colors that go in any home and nice and cuddly.

So zip on through the rest of the new kits and see if anything tickles your fancy. Remember that all kits have all the fabrics for the top, binding and instructions. Any kit that includes the backing will be noted.

A couple of months ago, we sent you a teaser on some upcoming BLOCK OF THE MONTH projects that we would be introducing in the near future. Well, the Near Future is finally here - for most of them!!! We thank you for your patience if you've been waiting for more information. As you can see, we've been sewing and stitching furiously to get our models done. It's so much better to see the quilts in real life rather than pictures, so if you come by our neighborhood, stop in and pet the quilts - they love it!!!

If you haven't already seen us embarrass ourselves on Facebook, tune in and enjoy the show! You never know what Teri and I are up to, but we'll keep you updated regularly. Susan, who works with us, keeps our page updated (thank GOD!!!) and is always after a "not so favorable" photo. But we try to play along and be good sports!

We'll show you all the newest cool stuff that has come into the shop and any events that we do, spur of the moment. You can find us at


Marty ... what did you lose?

See you soon!
