Fall is in the air

Kathy Schmitz' book "Stitches from the Harvest" arrived yesterday.....just in time for the start of fall.  Now if Mother Nature would cooperate and drop our temps just a few degrees and scoot the humidity away.....the weather would feel like fall.  Kathy's book is 80 pages filled with the most charming fall themed projects.  We want to do them all -- now!  If you're not a fan of embroidery, most projects could easily be transformed into wool or cotton applique.  $24.95

Let us know if we can reserve a copy for you ( or 479-372-7403.  You can also order on line by visiting
"The Crow Quilt" is a perfect seasonal wall hanging.  Your $32.95 kit includes the pattern, fabric for the top and binding.  The quilt does not contain any wool.  In addition to the pattern for the crow quilt, the pattern also contains a cardinal and an eagle quilt.
We have one of our favorite quilt kits back in stock.  "Butternut" has a timeless look.  Your $99.95 kit includes the pattern, fabric to make the quilt top and binding.  If you'd like help in choosing a backing fabric, we're happy to assist with that.

The quilt finishes 60" x 74"

Please note a couple of the fabrics used in the original quilt are out of print but Kay chose substitutes that are close matches.
Hopefully you have your calendars marked and are planning to visit Kay at the Town and Country Quilters Guild show Sep 22 or 23 (9:00-5:00).  The show will be held in a new location in the Joplin (MO) Memorial Hall, 212 W 8th Street.  She will have all the items in this newsletter plus tons more to inspire and tempt you.  For more info visit

We also invite you to visit the Pryor (OK) Patchers Quilt Guild show Sep 22 or 23 (9:00 - 4:00).  Their show will be held at the Mid America Expo Center in Pryor.  For more info visit

Perhaps you can plan to visit Joplin on Friday and plan a road trip to Pryor on Saturday. 
We'll be back next week with more to inspire you.  See you soon.
