Monday already?

I hope I'm not the only one that thought it should still be last week...where are these fabulous HOT sunny days going? We just got our class list together, so that should be hitting your email soon. There is a copy on the website too, and we're gathering project samples so they'll be finding their way to the store displays soon.

Here is a snapshot of a darling stitchery combined with english paper piecing and applique techniques all in will be off to it's new home soon. I'm pretty sure the bride & groom don't read our blog so no giving away the surprise there. What a great personalized wedding gift to receive! This project is designed by the same artist (Lynette Anderson) that did the neat Magical Christmas piece we have on display. We love her designs!

Have fun stitching!

Haunted Mansion

We love our latest Halloween quilt, quick and fun, green and halloween...pretty much covers all the bases! We have a few kits for this one, and tons of great Halloween fabric to choose from.

Class is scheduled with Alethea Ballard, for The Chair of your Dreams. It will be on Friday August 27th, from 10:00-4:00pm. We still have a few spots left, and her sample quilts are here, and they are fabulous! Stop by to sign up and visit the chair quilts!

If you have any stray 12 inch (finished size) blocks to donate to the collection for Middle Tennessee, we'll be sending in a box at the end of this month. Anna Maria Horner is heading up this drive and we have more details available here at the shop.

Rain makes for great sewing time!

Summer Harvest

The harvest is on, and we've got velvet figs this month! Hand-dyed velvet, a bead or two and you've got a centerpiece for your sewing table...The pattern is called Orchard's Bounty, by Fig Tree Quilts.

We are having fun with new quilt samples...Castle Peeps, Haunted Mansion and Peppermint Swirl kits are all ready to go, and we have some of the new 3 Sisters group Park Avenue, including charm squares and a new sample from the Madeline pattern. Of course we slipped in a few new fabrics too, batiks, novelty prints, and a great new 'pear' solid-colored texture from Robert Kaufman...more colors to follow.

I'm in the process of setting up a class for August 27th - it is in the works, so all the details are not available yet. This will be a class featuring Alethea Ballard and tie into her upcoming book by C&T Dream Chair Quilts that will be published later this year. How cool is that?!

Give us a shout or stop by later this week if you want to know more about the chair class....until then, happy stitching!
