The Quiltzette

November 17, 2014



A big thank you to everyone who came out to our marathon clearance sale Friday before last. See what you helped us do? This box was EMPTY at the beginning of the sale. All these empty bolts mean we're ordering even more new fabric!


Speaking of New Fabric . . .

We're now carrying the Grunge line from MODA. It works well for both traditional and modern quilts and the colors are amazing. These came in last week and we'll be ordering more of the 67 colors soon. 


This elegant cream and dark red collection also arrived last week. 


And for something playful . . . we have cats doing yoga!


This eight-piece patriotic collection came in last Friday. Cream, red, and white. Isn't that paisley print beautiful?

Support for Local Pets

Our very nice customer Marcia Kerans from Durango makes these handy and well-crafted thread caddys. Great when you're doing hand work, the caddy holds your spool of thread, scissors, needles, and thimble with a series of dowels and magnets. Marcia gave us eight of these to offer for anyone who would like to make a donation to For Pet's Sake, our local humane society. We're recommending a donation of $20 for for this very nice made-with-love item. Please bring a check made out directly to For Pet's Sake if you would like to help out. And THANK YOU Marcia for thinking of us and pets who need to find forever homes in Montezuma County!
