Thanks to everyone who stopped by Saturday for our Holiday Open House.  We had a great time and were excited to see so many of you inspired by our creations.  We enjoy putting together projects to make you smile......speaking of smile......this project is sure to bring a smile to your face.

It finishes 6" x 6" so is the perfect size for the Ackfeld table stand.  Your $18.95 Happy Snowman kit includes the pattern with our changes, all wool for the front, cotton backing, the gold star and the darling rusty bell above the door.  The stand is sold separately for $19.95.  If you live out of the area and would like a stand, please call or email us.  The stands do not fold so we have to figure postage manually so we keep them off our website.
We are calling the piece above Happy Snowman.  The pattern is actually called Stitched Ornament Set but since we didn't make the ornaments we thought it would be confusing to call the piece an ornament.  Here's the pattern you'll receive.  As you can see, you'll get patterns for 6 darling ornaments.  We'll be happy to put together kits for those.  Just let us know.

If you'd prefer to use your own materials, the patterns are available for $10.
Another new piece is our Angels Gather Here pillow.  Debby stitched it and changed the pattern (bet you're surprised by that).  Your $21.95 kit includes the pattern and all fabrics needed to make the pillow.  The pillow finishes 18" x 18".

Both the Happy Snowman and Angels Gather Here pillow could be made in time for Christmas gift giving.  If you're already finished with gifts for this year, why not start thinking about next year?  Ordering is easy -- just click on this link
We are very excited to share news about Jo Morton.  If you're not familiar with her, she is not only a wonderfully nice person but also a very talented quilter.  She worked with Martingale publishing to put together 13 patterns from past Jo's Little Women Clubs into a beautifully photographed book.  It contains instructions for making all the projects as well as tips on using small quilts in your home.  80 pages $24.99

"Jo's Little Favorites" will be available mid-January.  We are taking pre-orders now.  Let us know if we can reserve a copy for you. 
If you love snowmen as much as us, you won't want to miss Snowmen in the Coop.  It contains 14 projects featuring snowmen.  At only $22 for the book, that's only $1.57 per project.  You can't beat that especially if you love snowmen.  52 pages

If you'd like to reserve a copy, give us a call or e-mail.  If you'd like to place an order, follow the link and click on the New tab.
We will be open regular hours next Tuesday and Saturday.  Closed Thanksgiving day.  See you soon.

Darlene and Debby
