Lots of new things

What an unseasonably cool start to the week.....made us glad we still had the winter quilts on the bed.  It was also good staying at home and stitching weather.  Since Mother's Day is just around the corner (like Sunday, May 8), we were reminded to share a fun piece that is all about family.

"Precious Threads" combines our love of family and needlework into one piece.  The stitched wording "Family Ties are Precious Threads" says it all.  The applique is wool but we would be happy to swap out cotton if you'd prefer cotton.  Your $36.95 kit includes the pattern, fabrics for the top, wool for applique, and binding.  It finishes 33" x 33".
If you stitch quickly, you'll have this finished in time for Mother's Day this year.  Your $12.95 kit includes the pattern and fabrics for the top.  Of course, we think this would also be equally sweet with another relative stitched in place of mother:  An aunt's heart is a patchwork of love; A grandma's heart; A niece's heart; A friend's get the idea.
We are very excited Quiltmania has decided to publish another book by Yoko Saito.  If the cover quilt is any indication of what's inside, we are in for a treat.  "Scrap Valley" is on the way to us and should arrive mid-week next week. If you'd like us to reserve a copy for you, let us know.   
We are also taking pre-orders on Quiltmania #113.  It also should arrive mid-week next week.  If you're on automatic to receive the magazine, Debby will process your order.  If not, let us know if we can reserve a copy for you.  As always, the magazine is only $13.99.
If you're familiar with Lynette Anderson you know she often carries her stitching supplies in cute totes.  We were able to get some of the totes she uses and are offering them for $26.95.  The outer cover is red or blue......
.....once the case is covered, the red (or blue) portion is no longer visible.  We have Winter Moon and The Sewing Case patterns both available.  Each pattern is $16. 
Kay has created a wool covering.  Pattern for "My Stitching Tote" is $9.  We will be happy to put together a wool kit for you.

Let us know what we can reserve for you.  Please note the totes are out of production so it is doubtful we will be able to reorder them.
Don't forget about the Eureka Quilters Guild show May 6 & 7 at the Inn of the Ozarks Convention Center in Eureka Springs (hours 9-4).  Also, the Airing of the Quilts May 6 & 7 at Bell Park, 1050 Bell Park Road in Greenwood (hours 9-5).  The weather looks lovely for both events. 
This turned out to be longer than we anticipated but we had a lot to share.  Spring quilt market is just around the corner.  Kay will be heading to Salt Lake City and will be happy to keep an eye out for any special request you might have.   See you soon.

Darlene and Debby
