Holiday Gift Items - Part 3

Today definitely feels much more like Christmas than last Thursday.  With just a week left until Christmas, we thought we'd offer some great last minute gifts.  These necklaces are all handmade in the U.S. and are unique -- you won't find them in the big box stores.  We've included a quarter in each photo to give you an idea of the pendant(s) size.

Since they are unique we won't be putting them on the website so we don't have to deal with selling out.  Please give us a call (479-372-7403) or e-mail ( to reserve your choice. 
It's probably too late to get this next project finished in time for the holiday but if you start it now you'll be way ahead of the game for Christmas 2016.  It would also make a great gift for someone who likes the primitive Santa look.  "Slim Santa" finishes 18" so is the perfect size for a small nook in your would also be the perfect size for decorating an RV for those who are brave enough to winter in the north or those who are eager to winter in the south.

Your $24.95 kit includes the pattern, flannel for the background, wool for the applique, and binding.  We chose a Moda flannel by Primitive Gatherings for the background.  If we had gobs of money and room we'd have every single bolt of Moda flannel on our shelves......we love it that much.
Of course, gift certificates make a wonderful gift.  They're available in any denomination and are a nice way to get your loved one something you know they'll adore.
We are having our 2016 planning meeting tomorrow but can't wait to tell you about a couple of blocks of the month we have on the schedule for next year.  Since so many of you asked for it, we couldn't resist so will be offering "Merrie Christmas" by Buttermilk Basin.  We chose Diamond Textiles backgrounds and wool for the applique.  We are waiting on a couple pieces of hand dyed wool and will be ready to start our sample.  The quilt finishes 42" x 42".

Our program will begin February and run for 9 months.  Cost is $19.95 per month for 9 months.  Each month you'll receive pattern with full size templates, background fabric, and wool.  During the 9th month you'll also receive border and binding fabric.  If you'd like to reserve a spot, give a call or e-mail.

If you'd prefer to use your own supplies, the pattern cost is $28.
We listen to you and since many of you asked us to run "Camp Runamuk" again as a block of the month, we are going to do so.  The backgrounds are a combination of Diamond Textiles and Kamla homespun fabrics and the applique is wool.  The quilt finishes 48" x 56"

This program also begins February and will run for 12 months.  Cost is $19.95 per month and includes pattern with full size templates, background fabrics, and wool.  During the 12th month, you'll receive borders and binding fabrics.  Let us know if we can reserve a spot for you.

If you'd prefer to use your own supplies, the pattern is available for $22.
We will be closed Christmas Eve (next Thursday), Christmas Day and the day after Christmas.  With Christmas falling on a Friday, we thought we'd reward ourselves with a long weekend.  We hope you have a nice holiday and that you get to spend some time doing what you most enjoy.

For planning purposes, we will be open regular hours during the New Years holiday.
