Memorial Day Weekend / Sea to Ski events

We hope everyone has some time to relax and enjoy the long weekend ahead.  Maybe even find some time for sewing!

Good luck to all the Sea to Ski race participants!!

Due to the parade that closes Cornwall Ave and that our parking lot becomes the center of activity we are closed on Saturday May 23rd until parade traffic clears up, approximately 2:00pm we will open.  We will also be closed on Monday, May 24th in observance of Memorial Day.

This is our last open Sunday for a bit, we usually close Sundays during summer, Memorial Day through Labor Day.  So starting Sunday 5/31 we will be closed on Sundays!

MORE? new fabric and quilts oh my...

It seems that the UPS delivery has Two Thimbles on some kind of automatic delivery system....who did this?!  We have sew much new fabric, and each delivery seems better than the last!  Got to find some time for sewing a few projects and quilts... 

More Hearty Good Wishes by Janet Clare for Moda
We have jelly rolls, and charms and mini-charms of this latest edition by Janet Clare - we still have a few fabrics left from the original Hearty Good Wishes collection and these are playing together perfectly.  Remember this great quilt that Shannon stitched up for us?  Well - it has recently found a new home via a fundraising for the Nooksack Salmon Enhancement Association.


The group below from Moda is quickly disappearing - the variety of colors and motifs in the prints is great, and we still have a few charm packs left for a full variety of the line.
Nomad by Urban Chiks for Moda
Our latest edition to the Modern Mini collection - is actually a large hexagon, these are some of the Marcia Derse fabrics which are fun to combine and mix and match.  The background we chose is a very light silver grey, gives it just enough color but not too much we thought.  These two pillows are 16 inches, a perfect update for spring decorating?!  The pattern is from Jaybird Quilts, called Candy Dish.  


This zig zag quilt is a fun variation from all the horizontal chevrons and zig zag patterns we've seen - it's called Zenith, and uses fabrics from Clothworks Beatrice collection.  


And then some odds and ends to fill in the 1800's color wall and some special border stripes for fussy cutting or using to make a bold statement in a strippy quilt or final border.

Dressing Gown by Judie Rothermel for Marcus

The Palampore is here!!

Well the goods are pouring in, you can tell I had too much fun back in October at Quilt Market in Houston!  The very special Palampore panel has arrived, which coordinates with the Tree of Life fabric collection.  All are designed by Mary Koval for Windham fabrics.  The Palampore is quite large, and pretty unique.  We are working on plans for a quilt, but haven't got one whipped up just yet...The amazing toile print comes in red, blue and brown and is pretty spectacular along with the Palampore panel.  We have it posted on the website so you can take a look at it there, the colors are much better in person so stop by soon to see the one we have hanging up in the classroom.

And of course, we wouldn't just stop at a little bit of new fabric...we have lots of new collections including more australian prints to add to our initial shipment.
