                                                 What's New!
                                            "WE'RE MOVING!!!"

Are you surprised? So were we! After some intense scrambling around, we were fortunate and found a new home in the same general area as our old home.  You will soon find us at:

We will be closing at our old address on Memorial Day, Monday, May 27th, and plan to reopen early in June. We will send out an  email with the opening date as soon as possible. In the mean time, we will be doing  something we think you might enjoy. We will be having a:

                                      "WE DON'T WANT TO MOVE THIS" SALE
                                                 WEDNESDAY, MAY 15TH through SUNDAY, MAY 26TH  
There are benches, wagons and carts full of great, deeply discounted  bolts of fabric from all over the store, 
Additionally, we will have tables of bargain priced items: Kits, Books, Patterns and Notions.
We also have over 4,00 rolled Fat Quarters selling at $2.75 for the event.                   



Have you started any new projects? Or are you like many of us, looking for ways to use up favorite fabrics you have stashed away.  Check out our classes to see ways to satisfy either idea.   

Patty Shaw has a couple of bag/tote projects that will tickle  your fancy.  We have groups and clubs that indulge a plethora of favorites, from outlandish Australian patterns to embroidery and handwork. Don't forget our talented teachers who can instruct you in everything from learning how to quilt to expressing your talents with art quilts.

Check out the classes on our website listing or stop by and see the class samples, and enjoy the camaraderie of fellow quilters!

                                                                     NEW  FABRICS!  
We have received some fabulous fabrics lately.  From Moda, comes the newest French General, aptly named "Vive La France".  It has a wonderful patriotic palette with soft reds, blues and beiges. We have charms, layer cakes and jelly rolls for those fast projects.

Beware of those Australians! They have a large presence in the quilting world these days. Just look at any issue of "Quiltmania" and you will see what I mean. Jen Kingwell is one of the hottest artists on the scene with her new fabric lines, patterns and books.  Her newest line "Remix" has 32 pieces including  "Lollies" which are eight different fabrics on one bolt. These are fantastic to use for piecing and applique.

From RJR we have Victoria Finley Wolfe's newest line, also featured on the cover of Quiltmania last year.  Her  fabrics are wild and wonderful and completely compatible with Jen's.

We all need backgrounds and we have plenty.  We have just received Modern BG Colorbox from Zen Chic. We have an entire choir bench full. There are 55 bolts, perfect for backgrounds on both modern and traditional quilts, especially the popular Laura Heine collages.

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 in our shop  We are very proud of this pattern as the quilt top is owned by our partner, Dawn Licker.
