Jo Morton Birthday Celebration

Greetings...we are finally having that blustery fall weather, and since Halloween is just around the corner, that seems about right! We celebrated Jo's birthday (ok, just another excuse for cupcakes from Icing on the Cake - yummy!), with fabric, friends, quilts and good eats! Hope to make this an annual event, so if you couldn't find the time this year, perhaps it will fit your schedule next fall. Here are a few photos from our day!

Hope this fall weather gets you inspired to head into the sewing room and stitch up a few projects!

Creating and Crafting

We are having a fabulous time creating great bags with Agnes. Her latest pattern 'the Paris Crossover Bag' is perfect for a laptop and versatile, as you can see from this class photo!

Can you believe, we still can't get enough of halloween? Of course, the beginnings of halloween candy have arrived, but even more profuse at the moment - Pumpkins! I will admit there has been some competition amongst a few of us, and they just keep multiplying and evolving. These pumpkins won't get yucky sitting on your porch in the rain though - they'll carry through to a harvest table decoration in November. One customer suggested perhaps we'd gone a bit 'crazy' with them...but hey we're working up to a Christmas version so ya never know!

Happy Stitching!

Karin Franzen Workshop

I'm so excited that we've been able to put this workshop together...if you remember her Birdscapes exhibit at La Conner, you won't want to miss this opportunity.

October Birthdays

Happy Birthday to all the October birthdays out there! What a great month to celebrate...birthday cake, halloween...more chocolate, who hoo!

We're serving up petite gateau's as our pin cushion this month, from a pattern by Fig Tree Quilts. These can be whipped up in a quick moment from charm squares and, like any good dessert, you'll want more than one!

We hope you had a chance to take in the La Conner Quilt Fest and participate in the 91-mile yard sale event this past weekend. If not, you'll have to find another opportunity to get out and about and see what's new! We have started taking sign-ups for the Karin Franzen workshop scheduled for next January and it is sure to be an amazing opportunity to absorb some of Karin's techniques.
