We have stitching bags

Thanks for all the birthday wishes.  You guys are the greatest!  We had a nice turnout for the party and lots of e-mails wishing us well and continued success for the future.

Hope you were able to stay warm during our recent Arctic blast.  Some of you may remember Erin who helped at the shop and dyed our wool.  She moved to North Dakota last year and loves the winter weather -- even when the high temps don't even reach 0.  So if you're feeling cold during one of our "balmy" 20 degree days, just think of her.

Our project this week is by Bird Brain Designs.  We adore her snowmen designs; Debby couldn't wait to stitch this pattern when she saw it.  Your $26.95 kit for "Yard of Snowmen" includes the pattern, background fabric, binding, backing and a ball of Valdani perle cotton #12.  It comes packaged in a nice zippered storage bag.  Finished size approximately 10" x 36".

To order, visit our website, email or call 479-372-7403.
We now have zippered storage bags.  These are a nice mid-weight plastic with a zippered opening.  Both sizes have gussets which allow the bag to expand.  Exposed edges are covered with binding.

We've included some props in the photos of the bags to give you a perspective of the size -- items are not included in the bag.  The 8" x 10" bag is $3.95.
The 7 1/2" x 7" bag is $2.95.
Our "when it's gone, it's gone" kit this week is by Red Button Company.  "Pinwheel Garden" finishes 11" x 13".  Your $24.95 kit includes the pattern, fabrics for the top, binding and buttons.  Buttons are added to the embroidery in the border.

The first photo below shows the finished wall hanging; the second photo is a close up of the fabrics included in your kit.

If you'd prefer to use your own fabrics, we have a couple of patterns (including buttons) available for $12.95.
We've enjoyed seeing photos from the quilt show in Tokyo this past week.  We thought you might enjoy them also. has a nice grouping of photos.  Once you're at the website, type "Tokyo" in the search box.

We can't imagine being at a show where attendance was 45,000 in one day.......yeah.......45,000 people. 
See you soon!

Darlene and Debby
