Giving Thanks With Aprons - Celebrating Acts of KindnessCQC participated in the Tie One On project in 2018 & 2019, and what a wonderful endeavor it was both years!

What we need is homemade aprons (and right before Thanksgiving baked goods).
The more aprons we gather, the more people we can bring a dose of cheer to!

Please join us on Wednesdays (except the 3rd Wednesday of the month) on our
Open Sewing Days ~ Happy Stitcher's Club to work on aprons together.

Additionally, we challenged Quilted Corners' to see who could come up with the most aprons. Whichever store wins will have major bragging rights, along with a pizza party!

Hey Quilted Corners, we are catching up!



"Kimberbell’s Sweet as Pie Bench Pillow is a feast for the eyes! Create pie filling with fabric and iron-on vinyl, then top with a lattice crust. Silver Embroidery Leather adds metallic shine to the mixer and pie tins, while Flexi Foam gives puffy dimension to dollops of cream! With interchangeable ribbons, a cork rolling pin, and so much more, our Sweet as Pie Bench Pillow is warm decor to be thankful for."

We have the machine embroidery designs, embellishment kits and fabric kits in stock now!
