Happy Halloween week to all!
I had to share this new project with you first thing this week....all of the girls are just giddy over this new Block of the Month that we'll be starting in December!

New from Bonnie Sullivan...."Berties Year"
A 12 block project...each block is 11" x 17"....and can be used individually or made into this quilt at the end of 2014.
We'll be kitting it exactly the way you see it, using Maywood Studio's "Woolie Flannels" line of fabric! (100% cotton flannels that look and feel like wool)
We'll have a set of the patterns in the shop for everyone to look at in about a week.....and we'll have pricing on the kits figured here soon!
We've already started the sign up sheet!!

(Tuesday afternoon....)

Hello to all on this beautiful Tuesday! After 8 days of clouds and rain, the sunshine has finally returned and it is turning out to be a wonderful fall day!

When I got up this morning, I realized that at some point earlier today, our AOL account had been hacked and  a SPAM email was sent out to numerous email accounts within our address book. If you were one of the unlucky recipients, I do apologize and I believe we have the situation handled. But, what a mess in the meantime! If you receive an email from us with no subject in the heading, please delete the email immediately!

(Monday afternoon.....)

Starting off early this week with our update....I think it's going to turn out to be a busy week and I better keep up!

In the shop now!


From the "Josephine" line by French General for Moda
Bee fabric...$9.95 per yard...wow price is $8.95

Now the reason I'm mentioning this one piece of fabric is...
A while back we got this really great bee fabric in from Andover...similar to this...and it lasted about 2 hours in the shop before the entire bolt was gone and we could not get our hands on anymore. Then we saw this piece in an upcoming line and ordered it.  Several 
gals put their order in for some of this fabric already, so I know it's going to go fast!
(I'm pulling rank with this bolt and getting my piece cut first this time!)
If you need some...let us know!

(1 yard left as of Friday)

********************

DON'T FORGET!!
We have 3 of our Christmas lines on sale right now through Sunday, Oct. 13th!

If you missed out the first time....

We were able to get another bolt of this patch sewn fabric from the new "Collections for a Cause line - Love" by Howard Marcus for Moda 
(lots of girls were buying for quilt backs and to make pillows that would coordinate with a quilt)

$9.95 per yard...wow price is $8.95

New Cross Stitch series starting mid-November!!



"Frosty Forest" will be a 9 part series of small cross stitch projects (similar to Little Sheep Virtues) that will start in November and run through June, 2014.

All 9 projects will be worked on 32 count linen.
We're starting a sign up sheet now...let us know if you'd like to join in!
Pattern only will run $6.00 / Pattern with linen will cost $8.00
As soon as we have more information...we'll let you know!

********************

The answer is....

YES!! WE WILL!!

And the question is...

Will we have a new Civil War Block of the Month program for 2014??

Sabrina has picked a great new book to base the 2014 Civil War BOM on!
(Actually, the quilt blocks are from the 1920's, based on the book, "The Farmer's Wife"...but we'll be using all civil war and reproduction fabrics)
This project will be very scrappy, using all of the new Civil War and reproduction fabrics as they come into the shop during the year.
The block size remains the same...6"
and the kit price will remain the same...$5 each month for two blocks

We will be adding a week day group for this new project...
Meetings each month will be on the 2nd Tuesday and the 2nd Saturday from 10:30am to 11:30am, and you can pick which meeting you'd like to attend!

We'll have a sneek peek preview of the first two blocks coming soon!

A sign up list has already been started, so if you'd like to participate, just let us know!
