The pattern includes the instructions for either a 60” X 60” or 84” X 84” quilt.Linda Humphreys will be leading this class. An organizational meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, May 15th at 2:00. The plan is to meet the first Wednesday of each month for six months, starting in June. Linda will give a tutorial for that month’s blocks, then participants will go home to stitch out the designs. If you are unable to make the organizational meeting, but wish to have further info, please call us at 970-565-7541.

Designer Jane Alison gives us a warm and festive red, white and blue collection.  America The Beautiful  depicts some of the best parts of summer; watermelon, flowers, Memorial Day and 4th of July!

Our sample for this collection are these bright and festive place mats. You still have time to whip these up to decorate your Memorial Day table.


New Australian bolts arrived last week to tempt you... better add these to your stash!


"Live The Simple Life" depicts the goodness of living on the farm. By the way, this panel above... we sold ten of them today alone. We only have a couple left, so if you are interested, you better run in or call to get yours now!


Our Farmstead sample. We also have kits available for this beautiful and nostalgic quilt.


Just a spritz of these pretty perfume fabrics is enough to make a scent-sational project! Retro whimsy and exquisite color combine for a collection sure to star in a playful purse, swanky skirt or fabulous quilt!


Look how fun our samples are! A cosmetic bag, dresser scarf, and tissue box cover will sure dress up your bedroom. Tissue Box CoverUps are great to make for boutiques, or a gift. Just be sure to make at least one for yourself!
