Goodbye 2016

What a year 2016 was for us (and many of you).  It was filled with both sadness and joy.  We never know what the next day holds but hope 2017 is a year filled with good health and happiness for each of you.  We are going to try our best to make it a great year.
We are taking pre-orders for Kay's newest project featured in the spring issue of Primitive Quilts & Projects magazine.  "Scrap Happy" is a nice way to brighten your home during these often cloudy days.  Kay used Diamond Textiles' Colonial Cloth as the background for the quilt and wool for the applique.  The quilt finishes 42" x 63".  Kits which include the background fabric, wool for the applique, and binding are available for pre-order for $84.95.  The pattern is not included in the kit and is available in the spring issue of the magazine.  Let us know if we can reserve a kit and/or a magazine.
You will need the Spring 2017 issue of Primitive Quilts & Projects magazine to make the Scrap Happy quilt.  We expect the magazines to arrive by the beginning of Feb.  Let us know if we can reserve a copy for you.
While the shop was closed, we took the opportunity to give the floors a good scrubbing and tidied up displays.  We found a few more kits for "Frosty Fellas" designed by our friend Robin from Briar Roots.  Once we sell these kits, we won't be making more as the fabric is out of print.  Your $42.95 kit includes the pattern with our changes, fabrics for the top, wool for applique, and binding.  The quilt finishes 29" x 34".  If you'd prefer to use your own materials, the pattern is available for $10. 
We also found several back issues of Quiltmania, Simple Modern, Simply Vintage, and Primitive Quilts & Projects magazines.  If you're looking for a back issue, please visit our website

Here's just a sampling of the goodies we have.
We are open today and back to our regular hours - Tues, Thurs, and Sat 9:00-3:00.  We very likely won't stay up to see 2017 in so will be open regular hours this Saturday.  See you soon.

Darlene and Debby
