With our current level of smokey air due to wildfires a bit of new reading material and project inspiration might be what you need?  We can set you up with curbside pick-up, just give us a call at 360 715-1629 ~ Here are a few of our latest arrivals!  



We also have the latest  book from Jo Morton, Tried and True and if you're ready to bring some gardening to the sewing room - Petal + Stem by Amy Friend has some wonderful modern floral blocks for foundation paper piecing.  If it's just some bright and fabulous fabric that you need to see, the New Vintage collection by Kathy Doughty has arrived.  It plays well with several other fabrics on our shelves so there are options to build something fun!  



 And for subdued florals in the 1800's flavor pink and chocolate always works - this collection from Paula Barnes, Madison Square covers the range of dark to light pretty well.  


Let us know if we can help with a bit of fabric enabling!  We are still doing curbside pick up and mailing out daily!  Nothing to do but stay inside and sew right now.  Enjoy!

Here is a little quilt show offering - a few of the projects our customers have been sharing with us - what an amazing variety and so much fun to see these projects come to completion.  What a fun show this would be to see in person right?!!  Thank you for letting us share in your makes - thanks to Rachel, Darene, Caroline, Teresa and Carol for letting us share your photos with everyone.  Keep on stitching!  

Rachel's mountain scene 
Rachel was working from memory and a photo to recreate a familiar scene - pretty special gift completed!

Darene's great granny quilt

Darene put her collection of reproduction fabrics to great use in this rendition of a Great Granny Quilt from the book Great Granny Squared - by Lori Holt (Bee in my Bonnet).  The fat eighth cuts we send out monthly for our Sampler Club were the perfect way to use up some variety and mix and match the fabrics for fun block combinations.  This project or any other that uses 2.5 inch strips is a great option to use up some of your stash of these sampler cuts (just in case you've been stashing these cuts away)!

Caroline's quilt
Here's a spectacular walling hanging - Caroline's 2nd quilt...can you believe that?  Just look what a little quarantine does for someone's creative skills!  

Teresa's book club display
Teresa has time to read and quilt and someone in her book club has a pretty spectacular display fence begging for a quilt show!  These quilts showcase a bit of talent and some fine finishing!

Teresa's quatro quilt


Carol's zen geese quilt

Carol is counting up to 19 for her quarantine efforts - here are a couple of her recent finishes.  The quilt below was inspired by one on an Alex Anderson show - and really offered some practice on quilting.  Carol participated in one of the last classes we offered before COVID hit, and it looks like Tonya Alexander of Stash Lab Quilts has another student off and running! 

Carol's 

Happy Stitching!
