The Embroidery Corner

We did some re-arranging and made changes in our embroidery section recently. Hopefully it makes the threads a little easier to view and choose. We hung some new dish towel samples to show off some of the great patterns available for towels or any other purpose you might be interested in. Both of the samples shown here are from Aunt Martha's patterns and can purchased or ordered at the store.

The beautiful block below is one of the series of blocks to be taught in the Patriots in Petticoats class that will start in February. It is really a beautiful quilt and you will learn some perfect piecing techniques from Laurel. A great way to start out 2011! Call us to register, but don't hesitate!

New Things for the New Year

We have been just had a big turnover of quilt samples throughout the store to make room for all the new class samples. Here are a couple of things that are not included in the classes, but are fresh samples and fun projects.
This is Tipsy Snowman, I think he was celebrating a little bit too much on New Year's Eve! The pattern from Patchabilities includes the cute buttons to accesorize his snowy outfit. The pattern is $8.99 and the fabric kit is $9.95.
This quilt is called Basically Shirtings. The fabric and pattern were designed by Kaye England for Wilmington Fabrics. They are great reproductions of civil war-era fabrics. The quilt is not real big (48"x60") and the kit costs $65. Pattern is included in the kit or on their website as a free download.
Even though our website is not set up with a shopping cart (yet), we will gladly take a phone or email order to be shipped. What fun to find a quilt in your mailbox!
