New Arrivals

This dusty blue and off white collection came in recently. Very elegant.


We're working on a sample of this pretty wall hanging (this image is just a photo of the pattern and doesn't do it justice). The finished size is 40 1/2 by 51 1/2. We have kits made up and the panel and companion fabrics are also available.

This nifty pincushion is designed to hold your sewing notions and fits over the top of a sofa or chair arm. Make one of these and you’ll never again lose that needle that you oh-so-carefully stuck into the upholstery! Guest instructor Ila Starks will teach this class.

Beginning Quilting

Master the basics of quilting in this two session class. You’ll choose four fabrics and make a beautiful three-block table runner. Learn how to measure, cut, piece, and press for a polished result. You’ll also learn stitch-in-the-ditch machine quilting and how to put on a binding the professional way. This class will give you the skills and confidence you need to become an accomplished quilter. Class taught by Karen Childress. Students must know the basics of how to use their sewing machine (thread needle, load bobbin, adjust tension and stitch length).
