GETTING READY FOR THE HOLIDAYS
For those of us trying to get organized, the holidays are approaching with amazing speed. If you are thinking of making some doable gifts in a timely manner, we have the fabrics and accessories you will need to make those charming tote bags, pot holders, and other goodies to delight your friends and families.
Don't forget our ever popular 5TH SATURDAY BAG SALE coming up on Saturday, December 29th.As the last sale of the year, it will be a perfect opportunity to start the projects that you are interested in for the new year. If you already purchased the 5$ bag, bring it back in with this year's tag on it and get 20% off on any regular priced merchandise that fits in the bag. You will still be able to get a bag on the day of the sale.
Coming in January, Carol Gustafson will have a new Block of the Month called Stargazing. It is made with Marcus Brothers' gorgeous suede like Aged Muslin. Look for the time and dates in the next newsletter.
Everyone is always interested in fabrics and we love that we get to hug the new fabrics, especially if they will help you use some of your existing stash. The new shirting line from Andover, by Max & Louise, called Nicholson Street, is the perfect background fabric for a special quilt. Check out pictures of it on our Facebook page...quilters' corner sac. If you lean in the modern direction you need to know we just got in a bunch of new Grunge in wonderful, new colors. If you are really stretching it, we also received some more fun Aboriginal based fabrics. We're not just your Grandma's quilt shop!

Many of you have already noticed the wonderful antique quilt top we have in the back of the shop. It was made by a remarkably talented quilter, Sarah Simms in 1816. The quilt has embroidery, Broiderie Perse, piecing and applique and has been reproduced by Pearl Perreira and is now available as a pattern and kit in our shop We are very proud of this pattern as the quilt top is owned by our partner, Dawn Licker.
