Third Thursday Demo This Week

Join us on Thursday, February 16 at 12:30 p.m. when Karen will discuss and demonstrate how to avoid common problems when adding borders and cornerstones to your quilts. This will be a good presentation for newer quilters and a refresher for experienced ones. Bring a friend. No RSVP necessary.


A&L Meets Thursday

Immediately following our Third Thursday Demo, the Art & Landscape Quilt Group will meet at the shop. Join anytime. This is a growing group whose members are producing some amazing works of art. No RSVP needed. Come and be inspired!


New Fabric

This collection of traditional southwest fabric arrived last week. Such vivid colors.



And these fun bolts also came in last week . . . wolves, teepees, cactus, and more.


New Kit

We have this kit in stock now. It measures 40" x 40" and the kit includes everything except backing fabric for only $109. The sample is currently hanging in the shop window. Free shipping for our out of town customers this week only!


New Pattern

We love Michelle Watts . . . and her beautiful patterns. This is her latest, Bonita Trails. It's a collection of applique blocks. The finished work of art is 65" x 65". The individual blocks would make beautiful pillows or small wall hangings if you're not up for making the entire quilt.


New Notions

We're always on the lookout for what's new, useful, and interesting for quilters. Here are two of our latest finds, both in stock at the shop.

The newest ruler from Creative Grids is a winner - 8 1/2" x 18 1/2". Perfect for cutting wide borders.

Double-sized fusible, lightweight, and easy-to-sew foam stabilizer. Great for bags, totes, and placemats.

We’re working our way through the year creating these adorable raw-edge applique wall hangings. Make them with or without the month at the bottom. These fit perfectly in the small wire stands. With the month the finished size is 12 x 16; without 12 x 12. These are very fun to make. Join us for the March edition and you can backtrack and do January and February.
