Great new books coming this year

Spring quilt market opens this evening with the wild and crazy Sample Spree event.  While we will miss visiting with our favorite designers, we won't miss the hectic pace of the 3-day market event.  We've spent our time preparing for our open house this Saturday, May 20 9:00-3:00.  We hope you'll plan to join us.  We have several new projects to share including a preview of the work-in-progress newest block of the month.  We will also have some specials throughout the shop.

We're sure many of you remember the fun of anticipating holidays when you were younger.  We've put together a list of books that won't be released until later this year in hopes of bringing back that feeling of anticipation.  If you'd like to reserve any (or all) titles please send an e-mail ( and Debby will get your name on the list.

Kim Diehl has never disappointed us with any book and if the cover is any indication of the contents, we feel sure this will be a great book.  "Simple Harvest" is due out the end of October.  $28.99
We'd know the author of "Stitches from the Heart" even if it wasn't printed on the cover.  Kathy Schmitz' books are always filled with such beautifully photographed projects.  This book is due the end of September.  $24.99
Jen Kingwell has taken the modern quilting world by storm.  Her newest book "Bakers Dozen" is due late July and appears to be filled with all sorts of pieced goodies.  $28
Last but certainly not least is a new booklet by Blackbird Designs.  "A Little Flower" contains those great motifs so common to Blackbird Designs.  It is due out late September.  $12
We can't close without sharing a project.  Our "Little Lamb" pincushion is a great take along on vacation project.  Your $9.95 kit includes the pattern, wool for the front, wool for applique, wool for the back and a button in case you don't want to stitch the flower.  We'll be happy to put together a thread kit if you need threads.

Please note the wool in your kit may vary slightly from the sample.
Hope to see you Saturday.

Darlene and Debby
