Wooly Row by Row - we are SO excited!

This recently taken photo proves fall is just around the corner even though the calendar says it'll arrive in a couple of weeks......we just know it's not going to be long before the mornings are chilly and leaves turn the beautiful rich primitive colors we love.
We had such a great time meeting everyone who stopped by the show during Row by Row, we decided to participate in the Wooly Row by Row Experience.  With our love of wool it seems fitting that we share that love with everyone.

The Wooly program differs from the "regular" Row by Row in that you don't have to visit the shop to participate.  Each participating shop designed an 8" x 8" finished wool block with the theme "Basket of Blossoms".  Our block "Basket of Blossoms" is full of beautiful flowers one might harvest from their flower garden.  The program dates are Oct 16 - Dec 15, 2017.  We'll have more details as time draws closer but wanted to give you a heads up.

Meanwhile, you can pre-order a kit for $16.95 (we can't ship until Oct 16).  We also have a Valdani perle cotton #12 thread kit available for $14.  E-mail (, call 479-372-7403 or visit our website to pre-order.
Several weeks ago we offered Cheri Payne's "Ever Thankful" kit.  At that time, we mentioned Cheri had closed her business because of her battle with cancer.  Before she closed, we were able to buy "Kitty Corn" and now have kits available.  Your $36.95 kit includes the pattern, fabrics for the top, wool for the applique and binding.  This project is paper pieced.  If you're new to paper piecing or haven't used the technique in a while, we recommend making a practice block with scrap fabric before tackling the kit.

If you missed out on Ever Thankful, we still have kits available.  Your $29.95 kit includes the pattern, background fabrics, wool for applique and binding.
Our Quiltmania magazine shipment should arrive any day.  The fall issues seem to sell out quickly so if you're not on automatic to receive any of the Quiltmania magazines and would like to be, please e-mail ( or call 479-372-7403.  You can also order on line by visiting

Simply Vintage features 22 projects $17.99
The regular Quiltmania magazine contains 128 pages of happiness.  It's also the special 20 year edition.  We expect this will sell out quickly.  $13.99
We don't have a photo of the cover of Simply Moderne #10 but are sure it's filled with lots of inspiration.  $17.99

Please let us know if we can reserve a copy of any (or all) of these Quiltmania magazines.

Before we close we want to remind you of the Discovery Quilters of Shell Knob MO show this Sat & Sun (Sep 16-17).  The show is held at the Shell Knob Elementary School (on Hwy 39 in Shell Knob).  Saturday hours are 9:00-5:00 and Sunday 9:00-3:00.  Admission is $5. 
We'll be back next week with more projects to inspire you.  See you soon.
