A Blackbird Gathering

We know you're probably busy with last minute vacation plans and preparations to get the kids and grandkids back into the school routine so will just jump right in with some fun and quick projects that will be perfect for gift giving.

The first, Heart Could Hold, would make the ideal gift for about anyone.....simply change "grandma" to mom or aunt or friend.  Your $12.95 kit includes the fabrics needed to make the piece.  It finishes 5" x 7" so easily fits in a premade frame -- it would also be cute finished as a small wall hanging.  Let us know if we can help you choose a cute Ackfeld hanger if you decide to make a wall hanging.

Please note fabrics in each kit may vary slightly from our sample. 
If you're looking for a whimsical gift, the next kit is for you.  "Your Crazy is Showing" always brings a smile.  Your $18.95 kit includes the pattern which has been preprinted on sandcastle fabric, perle cotton embroidery floss, a needle, and fabrics to finish your piece into a pillow (backing fabric is included).  The embroidery piece is 4" x 6".

Please note the fabrics may vary from the fabrics pictured.

If you'd prefer to use your own finishing materials, the preprinted pattern, embroidery floss and needle are available for $14.

......and just because we know someone will ask......the darling stuffed teddy bear and bicycle are not for sale. 
We've been looking for an easy elegant stocking pattern and think we hit the jackpot.  Darlene said the pattern directions are very easy to follow.  Your $19.95 kit includes fabric for one stocking and the pattern which includes the embroidery patterns for all 4 stocking cuffs.

If you'd prefer to use your own materials, the pattern is available for $10.95.
Since we are slowly moving into the fall season, we wanted to share a book filled with fall inspiration.  Bonnie Sullivan's "All for Fall" includes a variety of finishing options including pillows, table runners and lap quilts. 80 pages $26.99
Kay has finished piecing our 2020 $10 block of the month, A Blackbird Gathering.  We know some of you wanted to see the finished product before committing.  For additional info, please visit

This block of the month will begin January 2020 (and we all know that'll be here waaaaayy too soon!)

To sign up, please call 479-372-7403 or e-mail
This week for our "when it's gone, it's gone" section, we have a couple of Jo Morton layer cakes.  We have only one of each.  $39.95 each or $69.95 if you buy both.
