The final installment of Kay's sewing series

What a perfect day for the beginning of the fall craft fair season in NW Arkansas.  Crisp mornings followed by warm afternoons are sure to get many people inspired.  If you're in the area, we hope you'll plan to make a stop at the shop as part of your crafting fun.  We are open today (Thursday), Friday and Saturday from 9:00-3:00.
The winter issue of Primitive Quilts & Projects magazine should arrive soon.  We are taking preorders and will ship yours as soon as we receive our shipment.  $9.99

The final installment of Kay's sewing series is contained in the winter issue.  The first in the series was My Sewing Accessory Case.  The case was followed by My Sewing Box & Scissors Keeper (because we need a box to house the sewing case).  My Thoughts Journal was the third in the series.  The final piece to the puzzle is a bag that will hold the sewing case, the sewing box and the journal (along with stitching, quilting supplies, quilts and about anything else you want to store).

Your $25.95 kit includes a 100% laminated jute bag, wool for the applique and cotton for your name label.  The bag pictured in the magazine is no longer available.  We are substituting a laminated jute bag which measures 13 1/2" high x 17 1/2" wide x 7" deep.  It contains a canvas outer pocket with a velcro closure but does not have an inner pocket.  The bag we are substituting is larger which will allow you to store more stitching and quilting supplies. 
The cooler weather is the perfect time to share our newest project, Checkerboard.  The quilt top is made using Maywood and Moda flannels; binding is a nice Diamond Textile homespun fabric.  Your $56.95 kit includes the pattern, fabrics for the top and binding.  The quilt finishes 47" x 57".  If you need a larger quilt, we recommend purchasing two kits.

If you'd like help choosing a backing fabric, let us know and we'll be happy to help. 
This week for our "when it's gone, it's gone" section, we are featuring our Fairytale Cottages block of the month.  We are down to a handful of spots available so if you've been thinking about joining, now is the time.  Cost is $10 plus shipping each month.  The pattern is sold separately for $21.95.  Please visit our website for more info.

We are happy to offer this as a kit if you'd prefer to have it all at once.  Kit cost is $141.95 which includes the pattern, background cotton fabrics from Diamond Textiles, stitchery stabilizer, wool for the applique, borders and binding.

Please note the photo is an old one before we finished our quilt.  Fabric and wool for the tabs is included (the tabs tuck into the upper and lower binding seams). 
We will have some of our samples for sale during craft fair weekend.  If you're looking for holiday gifts, we may have just the item(s) you're looking for. 
See you soon.
