Hello to all...well it's a brand new week and we already have something new to show!
The Spring/Summer edition of Mercantile Gatherings came today...woohoo! Great Great Great stuff in this issue...
There's an article on Antique Game Boards,Thigpen Homestead is the featured home, Splinters & Rags (in Vale, NC) is the featured shop,and The Olde Homestead Barn is the featured pattern company! The free patterns in this issue include a great stitchery piece by Glory River Primitives,a pantry keep wall pocket by Piney Creek,a primitive Liberty & Justice doll pattern by Old Homestead Barn, and a primitive angel ornie tuck by Sweetpea's Primitives. Like I said...great stuff!! $8.95 for the issue. If you need one mailed to you, go jump over to our website (link is over on the right hand side of the blog) or you can email me!
It's Tuesday and I am fixing to reorder the Mercantile Gatherings magazine...I hope they make it by the weekend or I might not have any copies for the shop!
A couple of new civil war fabrics came in for this weekend...(it's about time!)...
a great little small pink print...if your doing a brown/pink civil war quilt or just need a nice springtime pink for your projects...this is a good one!
And a fantastic blue floral...I can think of a million things to do with this one! Can't wait to cover a box or two with this! Both are from Marcus Brother's Civil War Tradition line...$7.95 per yard (Reg. price is $9.50/yard) Both will be on the website to order as well.
And now...the coolest book here for the weekend...Wool Crazy by JoAnn Mullaly. The book just came in today, and I think it is going to have possiblities beyond belief for wool applique...not to mention the great quilt project itself! 56 pages...softbound cover...$24.95 I didn't order a ton of these the first time around...so email me if you want one for sure! (It will also be on the website for ordering!)
Here is a picture of the quilt project itself from the book...60"x60"...
Two more new patterns coming in this weekend to the shop...fun little candlemat...takes the guessing out of how to make the pennies fit around a circle and come out even! And a cute wool pincushion pattern....both are great scrap wool projects...$5.95 for the candlemat and $7.95 for the pincushion pattern.....
And it looks like our freshly dried Sweet Annie bundles will be here by the weekend!! I'll have large and small bundles...love the smell! Hang it on your favorite cupboard door..or use it for your crafting projects!
SPRING MAGAZINE AND PATTERN SALE!!
After some careful consideration, we've decided to discontinue selling Create and Decorate Magazine in the shop. Over the past year or so, it just doesn't seem to have the kind of patterns that most of my customers are looking for. I've got back issues that we have not been able to clear out along with the slow sales of the new Spring issue. SO...I'm bringing everything I have in and I'm throwing them on sale for $2 a magazine!
Also, Sharon with Liberty Rose Patterns is doing a little spring cleaning of her own and we are happy to help her out by putting out a whole bunch of her older patterns...$2 each! She gave us a varied assortment from Spring thru Christmas..some are wool applique, others are stitchery patterns!(Most are shown over on her pattern website...www.libertyrosepatterns.com. in her discontinued section) She did give us some more of her current ones as well to sell for $2...some great summer and fall/halloween designs.
We'll be putting some special little sale tags and some of our furniture & small pieces..you'll have to come in though to find out what's on sale! The weather promises to be BEAUTIFUL all weekend long so come play and dig!
Have a great weekend...Lisa
