New season brings new hand dyed wool
Nature has quite a sense of humor......we have a relatively balmy
winter with days into the 60s and 70s and then the first day of spring
is very windy and chilly with snow in some parts of the country. It
probably won't be long before she catches up with herself and every day
feels like spring.
We had a terrifically absolutely fun Wednesday afternoon. We bought new hand dyed wool.......
.....and more hand dyed wool.......
......and decided to buy hand dyed velvet
because you've asked for it. We have patterns that we can't wait to try
with our new selection.
We changed out our fabric display that faces
the front door and thought it would make a pretty backdrop for
photographing some spring projects. "Spring has Sprung" is a quick and
fun project designed by Staci of Buttermilk Basin. We finished ours as a
pillow but it would be equally sweet as a wall hanging or the center of
a larger quilt. Your $10.95 kit includes the pattern, background
fabrics, wool for applique, and backing fabric.
Our shipment of Quiltmania magazines
arrived. Issue 112 is packed full of projects to please everyone. If
you're a new newsletter subscriber, you may not realize we offer an
automatic program for all our magazines. Signing up is a sure way to
make sure you don't miss an issue -- we'll reserve your copy so you
don't have to worry about whether you'll be able to get a copy. E-mail

As always, the magazine is $13.99.
Have you heard of Quilt Dots? If not, don't
feel like you're alone. We hadn't heard of them until our fabric rep
stopped by recently. Each 1" Dot has a secure magnetic back. The set
comes in a nice hinged metal box. We plan to add to our collection but
for the time being have Jo Morton designs. Set of 9 magnets (including
the box) is $18.
We sold out of Treasures from the Barn and
Ratsburg Road Quilts but have more on the way. Let us know if we can
reserve a copy for you.
As we learn about quilt events, we love to
share them with you. Last week we shared info about the Eureka!
Quilters Guild show May 6 & 7. This week we'd like to share info
about the Ozark Country Quilters' show Friday, April 1, 9-6 and Sat,
April 2, 9-3. The show theme "A Quilt Makes Your Nest a Home" sounds
very appropriate for this time of year. The show will be held at
Crowder College, 4020 N Main, Cassville MO. Admission is only $5 and
children under 12 are admitted free. If you'd like more info, please
contact Karen Mainar at 417-271-1053.
