Pretty Petals starts Jan 2017

Cooler weather has finally arrived!  To welcome the cooler weather, we reset the entry area at the shop.  It's full of projects that are perfect for stitching in cooler weather and gift giving during the upcoming holiday season.

If you spy something in the photos you'd like more information about, please let us know ( or 479-372-7403).  Our props aren't for sale......we have a lot of fun finding cute and whimsical pieces at our local shops to use for display.
We are super excited to be able to share our $10 block of the month for 2017, Pretty Petals.  As many of you know, we've offered a $10 block of the month each year since we opened almost 6 years ago.  There's never any sign up fee; nor is a finishing kit required -- you'll get all the fabric and wool you need for top plus the binding. The quilt finishes 43" x 43".

This year we are changing things just a tiny bit.  We based our block of the month on a pattern in a book so the first month will cost $18 and will include fabric and wool for one block plus the book (retail value $25.95).  Months 2-12 are $10 per month.

If you're local and would like to sign up, please stop by, call (479-372-7403), or e-mail ( and we'll get your name on the list.  If you're out of town and have a credit card on file, call or e-mail and we'll include you.  If you haven't ordered from us in the past, we will need your credit card to get you signed up.  Call us at 479-372-7403 and we'll get you signed up. 
We are also offering optional items to help you as you work on your Pretty Petals.  If you'd like any (or all) of these, please let us know when you sign up.

Valdani perle cotton bobbins are $1 each per month.  This project will require 19 bobbins.  We'll include the colors you need with the corresponding block.  The first month requires 8 bobbins so you can do the math.

We recommend Soft Fuse for fusing the wool and size 24 needles for stitching the wool.  Backing fabric is available for $22.
Kay recently finished a really cute table runner.  "In the Meadow" is small enough to be easily quilted on your home sewing machine (ours was quilted on a Bernina).  Your $22.95 kit includes the pattern, wool for applique,  Primitive Gatherings' flannel for the background, borders and binding. 
Sue Spargo is known for her whimsical designs often using very bright wool and lots of beautiful stitches.  We are taking pre-orders for her 2017 wall calendar.  We realize wall calendars may seem a bit old fashioned to many people but we love having a calendar hanging on our wall.  It's a great place to jot down reminders of the grandkids' soccer games, deadlines for paying taxes, or the date the furnace filter needs to be get the idea......wall calendars keep us organized.

"Stitches to Savor" is $22.99.  Let us know if we can reserve one for you and one for a gift for a friend.
Kay is in Bartlesville OK for a couple of days sharing her love of wool.  We are putting together a class schedule for next year.  If there's a class you'd like us to include, please let us know.

See you soon.
