Back issues of Quiltmania & new books

Last week we were surprised at the response to the new desk lamps we featured.  We received our shipment yesterday and have plenty to fill all orders plus some left over in case you missed out on one.  Let us know how many we can reserve for you or you can jump over to our website and place your order now.

Rather than retype all the lamp specifics, we invite you to our blog to read all about them.
With a new year comes inventory and taxes.  As we did our inventory, we noticed we have several back issues of Quiltmania magazines.  If you're not familiar with Quiltmania magazines, you are missing one of the best magazines on the market.  We hesitate to call them magazines -- they're more like beautiful soft cover coffee books.  We have them on our website or you can give us a call or e-mail to place your order.

Quiltmania #104, #106, #107  (we have only one copy of #104 so aren't putting it on the website)  $13.99 each
Quiltmania #108, #109 (we have only 1 copy of #109 so aren't putting it on the website)  $13.99 each
Simply Vintage Winter 2014, Summer 2015, Autumn 2015 (we have only one Winter 2014 so aren't putting it on the website)  $17.99 each
Simply Moderne #1, #2, #3  $17.99 each
Simply Vintage Winter 2015 and Quiltmania #105 are both out of print.  We have only one copy of #105.
Simply Vintage $17.99 and #105 $13.99
We received a couple of new books we'd like to share.  The first book is by one of our friends, Jennifer Gaston.  She's one of the three sisters who publish Primitive Quilts & Projects magazine.  Her book, Primitive Style, contains 15 projects including a folk art sampler, hooked rug, penny rug, table topper, pincushion, journal cover, and quilts.  The book includes pullout pattern sheets with full size templates.

We are particularly proud of the project on page 40 of the book.......because Darlene quilted the quilt.  The editor even made a special note of the beautiful quilting.  How neat is that?!
If you're like us, you have lots of precuts.  After all, they're soooo much fun to collect.  The "Quilter's Precut Companion" will help you decide what to do with them.  It contains 25 pre-cut friendly blocks using squares, half-square triangles, and strips.  The book also contains information about cutting borders, backings, and bindings.  It's full of easy-to-use charts, tables, and illustrations in a handy spiral binding.  Best of all, it's only $9.95.
One other note before we close this very long newsletter.  Since we are moving into the time of year when we may receive inclement weather.....if Rogers public schools are closed, we are closed.  If you have any doubt about whether we're open, please give a quick call. 
See you soon.

Darlene and Debby
