Fabric Therapy Anyone?

Quilters are generous with their quilts, their time and their materials - we appreciate hearing about all the great contributions and gifts our customers share with others, and we really enjoy seeing our customers share the gift of learning to sew and quilt with others.  We hope your new year provides lots of opportunities to share and promote the joys of fabric and quilting!  

We want to give a big shout out to all of you who are so generous with your time and materials as you contribute to so many worthy causes and provide quilts to friends and family both in need and in celebration all year long.  Quilts certainly make the world a better place! 

Here is a quick recap of some of the community activities we supported in 2016 with our store projects and quilts:

The La Conner Quilt and Textile MuseumBlaine Fine Arts AssociationThe Firs KidsCampfire Samish and Camp KirbyMoonlight Quilters GuildLove Inc of Whatcom County

We have been adding to the shelves and trying to carve out some time to stitch up some fresh samples, some how with our extra snow days I seem to be further behind than ahead!  We hope you have had a chance to catch up and get organized, meet all those new year's resolutions and move right on to starting something new?!

We know we're quilter's and not photographers - these prints below really are deep black!
Lampblack designed by Kathy Hall for Andover Fabrics
We have been expanding our selection of knits - and there are some amazingly great patterns for both children and women's clothing that you might just want to give it a go!  A simple receiving blanket with a bias trim edge is a very handy gift for summer babies too!

Please stop by soon and show us what you're working on, what you've completed ...or what you have planned for 2017!
