Too much cuteness!

Fall craft fair week has finally arrived.  If you're local you probably have noticed the increased traffic; if you're not local......there's a lot (like thousands) of visitors in the area.  The number will increase this weekend in anticipation of the Razorback game in Fayetteville.

We will have a booth at the John Q Hammons Center in Rogers off I-49 on Friday and Saturday.  We hope we're in the same location (the first room on the left as you enter the convention center).  In addition to lots of great kits at the show, we plan to have a few shop samples for sale.  The shop will be open regular hours Thursday and Saturday (9:00-3:00) and will be closed Friday.

Darlene designed a really adorable table topper using some very darling buttons.  "Snowflakes" finishes 13 1/2" x 29 1/2".  Your $21.95 kit includes the pattern, fabric for the top, wool for applique, and an assortment of buttons.  We're including a closeup photo of one of the snowmen -- notice the carrot button nose and the buttons down his belly -- they're all included as well as snowflake buttons.

If you'd prefer to use your own materials, the pattern is available for $8 and the button pack is $4.95.

We finished "Kitty Corn" as a pillow but it would be equally cute finished as a wall hanging or table mat.  Your $16.95 kit includes the pattern, fabric for the pillow front and back, and wool for applique.  If you'd prefer to use your own supplies, the pattern is available for $10.
We are waiting on our shipment of the winter issue of Primitive Quilts & Projects.  If you haven't reserved your copy and would like to, please call us at 479-372-7403 or e-mail us at and we'll be sure you get a copy.
The magazine contains many great projects including Kay's "Wandering Beauty" table runner.  The fabric should arrive within a week so we are taking pre-orders on the kit.  The table runner finishes 16 1/2" x 40".  Your $24.95 kit includes fabric for the top and binding.  You must have the magazine in order to get the pattern. 
If you're in the Fort Smith area (or would like to escape the crowds up here), why not plan a visit to the Belle Point Quilters Guild show this Friday (9-6) or Saturday (9-3).  The show is held at the Fort Smith Convention Center, 55 South 7th Street.  Admission is only $6 with lots of free parking.  For more info, visit

Mark your calendar for the Country Fare Quilter's Guild show in Claremore OK next Fri (Oct 21 - 9-5) and Saturday (Oct 22 - 9-4).  Their show will be held at the Claremore Community Center, 2301 N Sioux Ave.  We will be a vendor at the show.  For more info, visit

Hope to see you at the John Q Hammons Center or in the shop this weekend.

Darlene and Debby
