Bobbin boxes make a great gift

A quick check of today's date reveals the month of November is over half over.....which causes us to ask did someone steal some days from us......Thanksgiving cannot be next week!  Since the holiday season is right around the corner, we thought we'd share some gift ideas with you during the next few weeks.

Although tea towels have been around for ages, we never tire of looking at them.  It's fun to change them out and brighten the kitchen with a new one.  You have plenty of time to get either (or both) of these tea towels stitched in time for holiday gift giving.  One of the best things about making a tea towel gift is that no quilting is required so once you're done, the gift is ready to be wrapped.

Both "Joy" and "Wool" were designed by Buttermilk Basin.  Each kit includes the pattern, towel, and wool (the Joy kit includes buttons and bells).  Each kit is $16.95.
Perhaps your friend dabbles in wool applique and embroidery.  A set of Sew Graceful's favorite Valdani perle cotton #12 bobbins in light and dark colorways would be a perfect way to help them add to their thread stash.  Each bobbin set includes 12 bobbins and a bobbin case.  $12.95 each

We'd also suggest adding a pack of size 24 chenille needles for $2 per pack. 
Our Quiltmania shipment arrived.  If you're on automatic to receive your magazine Debby is processing your order.  If you're not on automatic and would like to be sure you never miss an issue, send us an e-mail ( or call 479-372-7403 and we'll get you set up.

We're particularly excited about the Simply Vintage magazine.  Erin and Kay have a design in the magazine and it even made the back cover.  We are taking orders for "O Deer" and expect to have kits ready by early next week.  Your $24.95 kit includes the fabric for the quilt top, wool for applique, binding, hand painted reindeer button, and black micro buttons.  You'll need the winter issue of Simply Vintage for the pattern.
Soft Fuse rolls are back in stock.  We've been waiting for our shipment since August and it finally arrived.  Rumors were circulating that the company had gone out of business but those were only rumors.  We'll be happy to hold a roll or two for you if you'd like.  We are also happy to mail -- just let us know how many rolls you'd like.  We received two cases but expect they'll sell out quickly so don't delay if you're in need.  $19.95 per 3 yard x 18" roll.
One other thing before we close.  We understand Cox is upgrading their spam filters.  If you don't receive a newsletter each Thursday please check your spam folder.  You can always visit our blog each week and read the newsletter.

We have lots more to share but this is getting long so we will close for this week.  See you soon.

Darlene and Debby
