Have you been by the Store since we have moved? Just in case you didn’t know we moved, our New Location is just on the other side of the freeway at 9500 Micron, Suite 110. The store is much bigger and brighter and much more beautiful! It has a larger classroom to accommodate the influx of anxious patrons that are discovering us for the first time and those of you who have been frequenting the store forever.
Come and check us out, if you haven’t already.
SEPTEMBER 29TH noon-4PM is our next OPEN HOUSE. Come meet the Teachers, see the new samples and grab a bite.
Some wonderful classes will be coming in the months ahead. There are new quilt projects by Sharon Alves called Sea Glass and Donna called SCRAP CRAZY 8 that uses a great new ruler set by Creative Grids. Paula is offering a Beginner’s class on ENGLISH PAPER PIECING. There are returning favorites like FEATHERWEIGHT MAINTENANCE, and BEGINNING QUILTING. If you are interested in bags, Patty has the Project Bag, the Brooke Wristlet, and the Totably tote. For those of you who love the Laura Heine Patterns, Ingrid will be teaching Laura’s popular technique class. Pat is again teaching Sashiko and Boro stitching.Check out the class listings for dates, etc.
New fabrics are coming in daily. Just yesterday we received the entire new line from French General called “Chafarcani” reminiscent of 17th century Turkey. This collection embodies the classic reds, pearls, and neutrals with just a touch of black. It is perfect to add to your collection of French General, or to start a new one.
Something new we haven’t purchased in a while is the latest Minnick and Simpson fabric line called “Northport”. It brings back memories of summers at the beach with a soft faded palette of red, white and blues in vintage florals with plaids and stripes.
Think “Safari Life”. It’s a new line, also by Moda, designed by Stacy Lesy Hsu inspired by life in Africa. It is full of warm colors of burnt orange, yellow grays and browns with scenery reflecting the culture and wildlife of the savanna. Also, there is a cut and sew panel of safari animals to cut and stuff.
Not to ignore the 1800 aficionados, we will be receiving Jo Morton’s “Shelbyville.” It’s a collection of basics and blenders that can stand on their own or work with other collections. It was inspired by Jo’s antique quilt collection. Perfect for any scrap quilt.
Also, American Jane is back. It has been awhile since we have carried Sandy’s fabrics, but we couldn’t pass on this collection. It’s called “Bubble Pop”. The colors are bright reds and greens with navy blues and yellows. Primary colors galore, with black and white ribbons, polka dots and florals in multiple sizes. There is one fabric that comes in four different colorways that is printed in four different patterns on one bolt. Buy it and try it!
Remember Gingiber? Well, the latest woodland creatures are trendy looking raccoons, squirrels and hedgehogs! Of course, they are gender neutral, so they are perfect for anyone’s quilt. The collection comes with your favorite blenders and background fabrics to combine with the illustrated panels.
Last, but not least, we ordered a follow up to the last shabby chic line. It is a Brenda Riddle Design also, called “Finnegan”. It is soft and sweet with a slight vintage air. It has warm linen hues of greys, yellow, sprout, lilac, pinks, sky blues and eggshell and makes the perfect quilt for a granddaughter.
Anyone interested in going to Pacific International Quilt Festival we have a bus going on October 19th. Cost $80.00 includes admission.
Look forward to seeing you!!!
