2020 Cherry Lemonade Block of the Month

It's just around the corner - that 2020...are you looking for a fresh project to start the new year out in the best way possible?  We've got a fun project lined up!  

The Cherry Lemonade Quilt Block of the Month project - pattern designed by Jason Yenter with Cherry Lemonade fabrics for In the Beginning.  

This is a six month project so you'll be done in time to enjoy it this year!  Each month you'll receive a fabric packet and block assignment and sprinkled in will be some of the setting block sewing so you won't be stuck with alot of repetitious sewing at the end.   The quilt finishes at 80 x 101!  You could easily modify this and make a matched set of throw size quilts too  - so if you love these fabrics don't let the size of the quilt slow you down!  The pattern and fabrics for the quilt top and binding are included in the project.  

Pay $30 per month January through June, with a one-time $50 registration fee. Pick up your monthly kit at the shop, or let us know if you would like it shipped. 

You can reserve your spot now! Or put it on your Christmas list!

Holiday Sewing

Are you ready for holiday decorating and gift-making...are you ahead of schedule or woefully behind?  We know there are many ways to get through this hectic season and a bit of sewing therapy is a popular method that we fully embrace!  

We've got some quick gifts, and fun additions that will make gift giving and gift-wrapping that much more fun!  We love reusable fabric gift bags, and the addition of an iron snowflake applique makes these simple ones extra special.

Small Business Saturday

We're excited to show you our Two Thimbles Mug...perfect for a hot cup of coffee or morning oatmeal...or are you a fan of a hot toddy on these chilly evenings?!  It's a one size fits all universal mug, so you can repurpose this cup in your kitchen or sewing room! We've been working on this for some time now, trying to keep it a secret and we're unveiling them on Saturday November 30th for Small Business Saturday.

We'll have Stash Lab Quilts latest designs on display and Tonya will be here for her new pattern book release from 11am - 2pm on Saturday as well.  Hope you find time to get out and support your local quilt shop and other small businesses!

Fabric for the season!

It's almost Turkey Day! Meaning it's time to relax and embrace some loose fitting clothes right?.. 
However, that's still a few days away. For now, we're still enjoying our fall-themed fabrics, both traditional and contemporary! 

We'll be closed to enjoy some time with friends and family on Thursday November 28th.  

We're expecting some chilly weather soon, and it's time to enjoy some holiday baking as we'll soon be engulfed with Christmas shopping and holiday preparations. (For Christmas early-birds keep a look out for our holiday blog post...)

Shop News!

Greetings quilters, sewers and fabric enthusiasts! 

Did you know about all the different fabrics we have? Not only do we specialize in Reproduction and Civil War era fabrics, but we also have hundreds of bolts in a variety of other styles and flavors!  

Batiks, Australians, bold florals from Anna Maria Horner, Kaffe Fasset and Kathy Doughty as well as a mixture of substrates including wool, cotton knits and linen/cotton blend canvas weight fabrics.  In addition to the 4,000 bolts of fabric in stock, we also host classes and allow groups to use our classroom space for their sewing get-togethers! 

We're located in Bellingham, Washington and have loved our home for over 12 years now. Though we primarily serve local quilters from Washington and Oregon and British Columbia, we happily supply quilters traveling from near and far and ship to all states in the lower 48, Alaska, Canada, Australia, France and the UK.   

If you can, come stop by our shop and get to know us! And if you can't, enjoy a virtual tour of our store by visiting our website here!  Happy stitching!
