Don't forget our ever popular 5TH SATURDAY BAG SALE coming up on Saturday, September 29th and December 29th. 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. If you haven't already purchased one of these special bags, you can get one this month and use it again in December.
Pacific International Quilt Festival is coming up on October 11-14 and we will be taking our usual bus load of ladies on Saturday the 13th down to Santa Clara. The cost is $75 and includes the entrance fee and treats on the bus. There are only a few seats still available, so sign up soon.
Everyone is always interested in fabrics and we love that we get to hug the new fabrics, especially if they are cute and huggable. This year's seasonal fabrics fit that bill. We've got cats, ghosts and witches for Halloween and snowmen and Santas for Christmas. We also have the new French General line, La vie en Rouge, and many more.

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.
