Hopefully you have marked your calendar and plan to join us this Saturday, Nov 14, 9:00-3:00 for our Holiday Open House.  We are so excited to share new projects and gift ideas with you.  It's been very difficult to tuck things away.  It's a good thing the party is soon because we're about to burst with anticipation!
Debby recently finished the "Rolling Star" pincushion from Traditional Primitives.  Missie thoroughly explains her paper piecing method in the pattern.  Your $14.95 kit includes the pattern, paper pieces, and fabrics for the front and back of the pincushion.  We used Kansas Troubles fabric for the star and a nice Buggy Barn neutral for the setting diamonds.  Each kit is different but contains Kansas Troubles and Buggy Barn fabric. 
Update on our Acres of Acorns block of the month -- we have 2 openings left so if you've been thinking about joining but are on the fence, it's time to commit.  This is an 11 month program and includes the pattern with full size templates, all cotton and wool to make the quilt top, and binding.  The quilt finishes 64" x 72".  $29.95 per month

Some of you have inquired about purchasing only the pattern.  We are taking a list of names for just the pattern; however, the quilt is still in Houston with an expected return date of Dec 14.  Once we get it back, we will have it professionally photographed for the pattern......yes......we were wondering the same thing......why does it take 6 weeks to come home......
We can now sell our Row by Row kits.  Kit is $14.95 and includes the pattern, fabrics for the top, and buttons.  This photo was taken before we added our buttons but you'll get a cute yellow duck and kitty in your kit.  Let us know if we can reserve a kit or you can go to our website and order right now.
Quiltmania 110 is on the way and might arrive by party time.  It looks like another great issue.  If you're on automatic to receive it, Debby will be processing your order as soon as it arrives.  If you're not and would like to be on automatic, send us an e-mail or give a call and we'll get you set up.  $13.99
One other thing before we close.  We know several of you are program directors for your quilt guild.  If you're looking for a program or workshop, please feel free to contact us.  We'd also like to recommend Missie Carpenter of Traditional Primitives as a speaker for your guild.  She is a wonderful speaker and has several fun workshops available.  You can get more info by visiting her website.
Hope to see you Saturday!

Darlene and Debby
