What's black and small and full of ....turkey?

Yep, that's us, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and soon to be stuffed from Turkey Thursday!  We have been watching the deluge of advertisements and enticements about all these calendar events and we really aren't ready to get up early and compete with big box stores for some combat consumption. 

Instead, we just want to say Thank-you for your business and friendship!  We have many things to be grateful for including our wonderful customers - Happy Thanksgiving!

We are closed Thursday and are open regular hours Friday and Saturday 10am-6pm.

In store special Friday, Saturday and Sunday ~ we're offering all of our SALE fabric at $5.00 per yard, one yard minimum cut. 

We hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend and that you have the opportunity to enjoy some quality time with family and friends and safe travels!

Fresh Ideas and Fall Leaves

Check out the latest patterns from our local talent Stash Lab Quilts!  Congratulations Tonya on the logo update and new pattern release ~ we love the pressed leaves table runner at this time of year - and we even have a kit ready to go, so you really could get this done for an upcoming dinner celebration or hostess gift if you're lucky and have an invitation out!

Tonya and I met up last week for a quick quilt market recap and update on what's on her sewing table - we even hatched up a plan for something fun in 2018 so watch for news soon!

Ooooohhhh this is the new Liberty of London quilting cotton weight - not the typical london lawns but the familiar small florals!  Perfect for combining with some chambray or art gallery denim! 

Of course a few bold batiks could brighten up your sewing table too - the photo below shows just a few of what we added to the shelves.   

This Owl panel "Majestic Woods" from Hoffman Fabrics - has so much detail included you might be fooled into thinking it is one of their digitail prints - but it is regular screen printing.  Anyone needing a quilt for a woodsy cabin or something that pairs well with flannels - this combination would be perfect!

Happy Stitching -

And these great books have just landed on the shelves as well - a fun variety and sure to get you inspired for a new project.

Quick Change

Well - what a difference a few days makes...we still have some residual snow from Friday, and I guess that means a changeover in the holiday decor and closet too.  We think this lovely faux fur infinity scarf is purrrfect for transitioning the seasons in style.  We've got a kit with instructions so you can grab and go - ready for the next round of blustery weather!

This new publication, Curated Quilts has alot of great photos, inspiration and perfect to snuggle up with for a lesiurely read when it's too cold and dark to go outside.  This will be a quarterly publication and would make a great gift for someone on your shopping list.

New yardage with some fresh florals will make it easy to start a new quilty project and the first two pictures below feature Alison Glass prints - a couple of lawns and a linen/cotton blend that would stitch up nicely into wearables.

And there is a bit of progress to share on the Pies & Tarts quilt - it has been under construction for so long now that maybe you thought it was a 2nd quilt...but slowly it is growing and I am a bit behind with the tarts, but I think the end is in sight.  Goal for 2017!

Pies and Tarts Update

This english paper pieced project designed by Sue Daley is a great project for travel and certainly has a wow factor that is hard to beat.  You can shop online for the paper pieces and starter fabric bundles if you want to whip one out just like ours!  Fat eighths and Starter Kits available here

Sloth Quilt
This fun jungle print features the latest animal of the moment - a lovely grey sloth!  There are a few other hidden creatures and the tiger and zebra  offer a brighter pop of color - great for a young animal lover!  

Stop by soon for  some fresh inspiration and a new fall sewing project.  Stay warm and Happy Stitching!
