'Tis The Season Party
Thursday, September 2nd
6:00-8:00 pm

'Tis the Season for Autumn, Halloween, Winter & Christmas projects, that is!

Please join us as we debut this year's collections, patterns and project ideas for the upcoming seasons and holidays.

As is always the case, you will not want to miss this fun evening... it will be the place to be in the entire Four Corners!  

We will have games, fun, snacks, door prizes, and a goodie bag for you! 

Please RSVP so we know to plan on you!


P.S. Quilted Corners will be having their Tis The Season Party on Saturday, August 28th @ 9:00 am. They will have completely different things to offer... plus all the fun that day! We would love to have you join us there! 



If you are a Dan Morris fan (QT Fabrics), you will enjoy this collection,
A Little Handy. Small-scaled carpenter's tools appear in a decorative stripe and tossed layouts for so many project possibilities. You will definitely want to make your favorite handy person a special project.


You will certainly want to put these fabrics in your stash for your next landscape or art quilt.

Northcott Fabrics has outdone themselves with these panels... they are absolutely stunning. A Great Blue Heron, or a Giant Ibis in a Jacaranda tree... which is your favorite?



Take a class with us during September, and enjoy 20% off your class supplies!
