Free demo coming soon

Last week many of you e-mailed and asked if Kay would offer a class on how she uses the Hugs & Kisses applique paper.  She checked her calendar and will be offering a free demo on Tues, May 2 at 10:00 and Sat, May 6 at 10:00.  The demo is free; however, we ask you RSVP by e-mailing so we can keep an eye on the numbers and add a second session if needed.  You don't need to bring any supplies - just yourself.

In case you don't follow Kay on Instagram (kayharmon01) or us on Facebook, here's the top border of Scraps of my Life using the Hugs & Kisses paper. 
During our warehouse spring tidying up, we found 3 Black Work Sheep kits.  You may recall this was our $10 block of the month for 2016.  We took an embroidery pattern by Robin Vizonne of Briar Roots Primitives and changed it into a wool applique project.  Your $119.95 kit includes the pattern, background fabric, wool for applique, borders, binding, and buttons.  Quilt finishes 35" x 35".

If you'd like a kit, please e-mail ( or call 479-372-7403 and we'll get it right out to you (or safely tucked in your folder for those who live in the area).
Jon, our Moda man, stopped by the shop Tuesday to share the pre-quilt market fabrics.  We were excited to see Lydia Nelson has a new line coming this summer (Lydia's mother owns Mockingbird Moon yarn shop in downtown Rogers).  "Hushabye Hollow" is a very sweet line featuring Lydia's drawings in colors like cloud, breeze, and moonbeam.  We wish we had room to carry sweet children's prints but we decided to make the best of our space and buy charm packs with a few coordinating fabrics.  Darlene has plans to design a sweet baby quilt with the line.....we'll keep you updated.
While we're on the subject of children and grandchildren, Debby designed a sweet little wall hanging.  Your $14.95 "Twinkle, Twinkle" kit includes the pattern, background fabrics, wool for applique, and binding.  This would be really sweet displayed using an Ackfeld hanger.  It would also look nice framed or simply used as a mat on a dresser.  Finishes 12" x 12"
Jo Morton also has a new line coming in August.  We love the sentiment expressed with her Timeless line:  "Collect Moments, Not Things".  What a great sentiment.  We are taking pre-orders for fat quarter bundles.  40 fat quarters - $136.  Let us know if we can reserve a bundle for you.
If you haven't marked your calendar for the Colors of Stockton MO quilt show April 28 (10:00-6:00) and 29 (9:00-3:00), we hope you'll do so.  Kay will be at the show and have lots to inspire you.  This is our first time to be invited to the Stockton show and we're very excited.  The show will be held at the Zumwalt Expo Center, RB Road, Stockton MO.

......and so you don't have to spend valuable sewing time researching mileage to Stockton we've selected some towns where we know many of you live......Pittsburg 66 miles, Springfield 54 miles, Joplin 78 miles, Tulsa 194 miles, Bartlesville 179 miles, Rogers 112 get the idea......a spring day outing to Stockton sounds like a nice way to spend a Friday or Saturday.
We'll be back next week to share the first block of Lynette Anderson's button club quilt (and a few more goodies).  See you soon.

Darlene and Debby
