Here are the details...

Each month, Moda will release a new "Frivols".....small fun quilt kits designed by Carrie Nelson (Miss Rosies Quilt Co.) using new lines from all of the designers in the Moda family.

Each kit comes in a great little specialty tin that coodinates with the project inside and will include 42 - 7" squares of fabric, an alternate block pattern to make a different project, a quote that has special meaning to that designer and a "frivols" surprise!

Pick and choose price (subject to availability)...$44.95
wow price...$40.45

Club member price (4 month commitment, beginning December 2015 - March 2016)...$36.95

Here is a peek at the first four projects:
(Months 1 - 4 are sold out)

You'll be able to see our models at the shop! If additional fabric is required, we'll have kits available!

We haven't seen the projects for December through March yet, but the designers will be:

December - French General (using Petite Prints Deux)
January - Strawberry Fields Revisited
February - Primitive Gatherings (using Songbird Gatherings)
March - American Jane (using Bread n' Butter)

We'll also be hosting "Frivilous Fridays"!!
 From time to time, we'll host a Friday night sewing session where you can bring any Frivols project you may be working on and sit n' sew from 6pm til midnight...dinner, drinks and dessert will be served!

Come join in on this fun new club!
