Mother of Pearl thread winders make a great gift

We're super excited about our Holiday Open House this Saturday, Dec 1 9:00-3:00.  We'll have refreshments and have these activities planned.
  • Wooly Christmas tree demo - if you purchase a kit to make a wooly tree, we'll give a free demo to help you get started.  With our technique, your tree will be ready for ornaments in less than 2 hours.  9:00-2:00
  • Appliquick demo - Kay will be available to demonstrate the use of the Appliquick tools 9:00-11:00
  • Select kits will be discounted
  • Kay's "Frosty Morning" tablerunner as featured in Primitive Quilts & Projects magazine is back so you'll be first to get to see it up close and personal
Since Christmas is coming quickly, we will be highlighting gift giving ideas the next few weeks.  If you are looking for a unique gift, how about a mother of pearl thread winder?  These mother of pearl winders are no longer being made so once they're gone, they're gone forever.

Each cute sheep in the Ewe Thread Winder collection is 2.25" wide and 1.5" high.  You'll receive 2 winders in each pack - $9.50 per pack.
The Hare Thread Winders are just adorable.  Each hare measures 2.75" wide and .34" high.  You'll receive 2 per pack - $9.50 per pack.
We just couldn't pass on the Blackbird Thread Winders.  Each blackbird measures 2.25" wide and .85" high.  You're receive 3 per pack - $9.50 per pack.
Perhaps you're looking for a special project to keep you busy for a while.  Lynette Anderson's Seaside Town is a combination of cotton applique, piecing, English paper piecing and embroidery.  Your $275 kit includes the patterns, hand painted buttons, fabrics for quilt top and binding. The fabrics in your kit will not be exact matches but will be close to the photo below.

Please don't hesitate too long as we have only 2 kits available.
When we saw these sheep scissors, we knew we absolutely positively must order some.  They're actually much blacker than the photo shows.  They're 3.75" high so are the perfect size for your stitching bag (they're especially darling when paired with the mother of pearl thread winders).  $11.50 each
"Santa' Treats" is the perfect size for a small nook in your home.  The quilt finishes approximately 5" x 12". Your $15.95 kit includes the background flannel (the green fabric), black wool, wool for applique, buttons and binding.

If you'd like to order an Ackfeld hanger to display your quilt, let us know when you place your order.  We'll also be happy to put together a Valdani thread kit for you.
The winter issue of Punch Needle & Primitive Stitcher is filled with 30 projects designed with the punch needle and cross stitch enthusiast in mind.  $14.99
See you Saturday!
