Gift ideas for all the quilters on your list

Yikes!   How can Christmas be less than 2 weeks away??!  We have our holiday decorations up and are looking forward our holiday tradition of baking cookies with the grandkids.  To allow us family time, we will be closed Dec 25-Dec 31.  We will reopen Jan 1 - we know several of you enjoy getting out of the house on New Years' Day so plan to join us then.

The winter issue of Wool Works magazine arrived.  It contains 13 projects and 4 special articles.  If you're on auto ship, Debby is processing your order.  If you're not and would like to be, e-mail ( or call 479-372-7403.  You can also place your order by visiting
A lap app makes a great gift for yourself or a special stitching buddy.  The base measures 8" x 12" to allow it to sit comfortably on your lap.  It includes 3 thread storage spindles and a very strong magnet to hold needles.  It can be adjusted in multiple directions.  The padded cover is 100% cotton and contains a pocket for scissors.  A sewing pattern to make a replacement cover is also included.  $69.95

If you can't make it to the shop, please give us a call at 479-372-7403 and we'll discuss available fabric cover choices.  We're happy to ship your lap app.
If you're been around the quilting world for long you are probably familiar with the name Alex Anderson.  She is personally working with RNK Distributing to create quilting products made specifically for quilters.  We're so excited to be carrying her line of rulers.  These rulers are available only at small Mom & Pop stores.

These are our absolute favorite rulers......those who know us know we won't promote a product we don't believe in.  Each ruler contains a nonslip coating that absolutely, positively keeps the ruler from shifting.  Rulers feature easy to read lines for marking and measuring fabric in 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 and 1" increments.  Rulers also have multiple angles marked and can be read from right to left and vice versa.

We have 5 sizes available:
  • 3" x 12" $16.99
  • 6" x 24" $31.95
  • 8 1/2" x 8 1/2" $27.99
  • 6 1/2" x 6 1/2" $23.99
  • 12 1/2" x 12 1/2" $37.99
Our $10 block of the month for 2019, Fairytale Cottage, is starting in just a few weeks.  The quilt is finished except for quilting (the tabs will be added after quilting -- that's why they're just pinned to the design wall).  Background fabrics are all Diamond Textiles fabrics and the applique is wool.  The quilt finishes 25" x 34".

The pattern is required and is sold separately ($21.95).  Each month for 12 months, you'll receive background fabric and wool.  During the first month, you'll receive stitchery stabilizer for the entire program.  Your borders will be included during the 12th month shipment.  No finishing kit is required.

For more info, visit our website  When you're ready to sign up, give Darlene a call at 479-372-7403.......a block of the month subscription makes a wonderful gift.
Before we close we want to offer one final gift idea for the quilter who has everything....Jane Lury's book "Meanderings of a Quilt Collector" contains over 200 photographs in 320 pages.  It's a hard cover, coffee table type book filled with stories of collecting and historical data.  $56.95
We'll be back next week with a couple more last minute gift ideas.  Until then, we hope you are enjoying this wonderful season.  See you soon!

Darlene and Debby
