New Kits

We have two beautiful new kits available. This teal/brown and just slightly modern quilt (or wall hanging) measures 57" x 77" and has exactly the right amount of metallic. Gorgeous and only $119.

This is a Jacqueline deJonge pattern. Judy just finished making the sample at the shop. It measures 30" square.The pattern includes printed foundation paper.

Our fabrics are not these exact ones, but just as colorful and stunning. We'll be adding hot-fix crystals to the sample once it's been quilted. This project is for intermediate and advanced paper piecers.

Get your kit now for only $79. Phone orders welcome for our out of town customers.


New Australian Prints

We received the latest Australian collection last week. There are some amazing bolts in this group. In silence, as there are no adequate words, are just three of them . . .

Saturday, July 22, 2017

Guest teacher Caroline Spurgeon will teach a full-day class in twining on Saturday, July 22. Twining is an ancient technique that is quick and easy to do. Twining is suitable for a variety of projects and adaptable to many materials. Twined bags have many uses depending on the size and material used. They may be simple and durable bags for shopping, knitting or book bags, or elaborate bags made with fine yarns and intricate in design. Students will be working on their own adjustable loom. We will begin with the warping process and continue with the basic techniques and complete with finishing ideas. Students will leave class with a finished bag and ideas for twining more of these useful bags. Supplies: scissors and heavy or bulky yarn (we have this in stock). Looms will be available to borrow for class and you may purchase one from Caroline if you wish. She will furnish warp yarn and items to accessorize your bag. Ages 14 up.

BERNINA Club: Couching
Tuesday, July 11, 2017
1:30 – 4:30 p.m.
Free, RSVP required

Couching, the process of adding yarn or other embellishments to a fabric surface, is a great way to add texture, color and dimension to any project. Learn to create couched flat braid, raised twisted cords, corded hem-stitching, and free-motion couching. We’ll experiment with several different presser feet used with couching. A variety of yarn sizes paired with the appropriate foot can work wonders for just the right amount of embellishment. Please bring show and tell items for additional chances at the door prize. Bring a friend. Owners of all brands of machines are welcome. To register please call 970-565-7541 or email Cindy.
