Lots of new things
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
"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 heart......you 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
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
