Jazz Jam by Jane Dixon for Andover
Do you have a musician in the family that needs a quilt?  Of course, you could make a piano cover, like they did in the victorian days of crazy quilts - they have a special display at La Conner you should check out.  Sue Spargo has an amazing collection of quilts on display in La Conner as well  - from the fun fabric combinations and embellishing all the way through to some amazing quilting.  The display ends March 23rd so don't miss it!

New Batiks
Saint Patrick's Day ALERT:  we will be closed for a few hours on Saturday March 15th, while the parade crowd takes over Cornwall Avenue.
St Pat is coming!

We hope the snow has left for the season and we can get back to the routine of wet weather and quality sewing time!!
