More Christmas gift giving ideas

If you live in the midwest, you're likely waking up to freezing temps this morning.  We keep reminding ourselves one of the reasons we love living where we live is that we get to experience all four seasons.....we just prefer a shorter cold season than what we usually get.

We're continuing with gift giving ideas this week.  We are down to the last few bundles of hand dyed velvet.  This velvet is a nice cotton product -- not the slinky, stretchy, always moving velvet your grandma had to deal with.  It's been hand dyed in beautiful primitive colors.  $40.50 for 9 - 8 1/2" x 10" pieces or $81.00 for 9 - 10" x 17 1/2" pieces

One lucky quilter will get a nice spring themed present in her stocking courtesy of her sneaky husband.  Since we need to order the kit, we thought we'd invite you to indulge yourself or a special someone.  "Bunny Town" was designed by The Quilt Company.  They're known for including the cutest preprinted fabrics in their quilts.  Here's the accessory fabric pack which will be included in your kit.
Bunny Town finishes 54 1/2" x 68".  Your $198 kit includes 6 patterns with full size templates, fabrics for the quilt top, the accessory fabric packet, buttons, and binding.  Let us know if we can help make your Christmas merrier by getting a kit for you or someone special.  E-mail us at or call 479-372-7403.

We just checked with the distributor and the kit is currently out of stock; however, they expect more around the third week of your present may not make it under the tree but it'll be something to anticipate a little later. 
We love what Lynette creates for the Christmas season.  Kay recently stitched her "Little Winter Wonderland" piece and we think it's adorable.  Your $39.95 kit includes the pattern, fabric for the top, binding, stitchery fabric, and 2 hand painted reindeer buttons.

Darlene quilted our piece but it would be equally darling if it were hand quilted. 
Another favorite Christmas pattern designer is Robin of Briar Roots.  Her Merry Christmas wall hanging is the perfect size for tucking into a small spot in your home.  Your $38.95 kit includes the pattern, background fabrics, wool for the applique, border, binding, and wool roving for Santa's beard.  Finishes 25" x 25"
A final Christmas gift idea is Bertie's Winter.  While looking for something in our warehouse, we ran across one last kit.  It's yours for $99.95.  The kit includes 4 patterns, background fabric (a very nice flannel from Primitive Gatherings), wool for the applique, binding and buttons.  The photo below shows ours before we added the border.  The border contains half square triangles with red and black flannel.
One administrative note before we sign off.  As you're planning your visit to our shop, please note we will be closed for the Christmas holiday beginning Thurs, Dec 22 through Tuesday, Dec 27.  We will reopen Thurs, Dec 29.

We'll be back next Thursday with more gift giving ideas.  See you soon.

Darlene and Debby
