It feels Like Christmas!
It feels just like Christmas at Bear Patch. I have spent hours marking in all our new books and patterns that travelled from International Quilt Market in Portland, Oregon via MH Designs vehicle to the store. I heard it was a fantastic trip! Each day, our "man in brown" brings us even more for your purchasing pleasure. Pam set up a rack in the front of the store with all our new "stuff" so it's not hard to see it all! Last night we had a Bear Patch Teacher's meeting- what fun going through everything to see what would make great classes for you. I was so impressed- there was no fighting over patterns and books! We just got in a new rack of King Tut quilting thread by Superior threads. Lots of great colors. The thread is varigated and changes every inch. Try it out! The new "Dish Towel of the Month" is up- it's really cute! I just got done with Valorie Wells Throw pattern. I made it up using the large florals from Westminster. You may wonder how to use these large florals and may even question if they "really" go together. I always say, "Once the seam is sewn, they go together". I had my quilter use a wool batt in it. I love how soft it is! If you are looking for a new machine, our Bernina Department has some great sale prices as well as extended financing. Come in for a demo and you might just win a $1500 shopping spree at the Sew Center. We still have openings in several classes- we can take registrations until the time of the class. So, if you find some time on your hands- come join us. Friday's have been a lot of fun with our open Sew time. Check out the available dates and join us! We also have an additional 20% on all Sale fabrics every Friday. Stop in for some great prices- these fabrics make great quilt backs and are also great for increasing stash and for making charitable quilts. Until next time- Debbie
