Last minute gift ideas

It's hard to believe we are approaching the end of 2019.  This will be our last newsletter of the year since Christmas is next week.  We will be closed Dec 22 - Jan 1 to enjoy some time with family and friends.  We also plan to take a day to do some cleaning and reorganizing at the shop.

The first kit we want to share is for those who love to embroider.  "Heart of Christmas" contains patterns for 3 hearts.  Your $12.95 kit includes the pattern for all three hearts, stitchery fabric and backing fabric for one heart and a red star button. 
We had a few extra minutes with nothing to do so did one of our favorite mindless tasks and looked at the Moda website for new products.  We couldn't wait to call Kay and let her know Aurifil now has a gorgeous assortment of 80 weight thread.  She's been using it for hand applique and loves it -- the stitches are almost invisible.  So......if you want to treat yourself to a super special gift, let us know and we'll get an assortment ordered for you.  The Moda warehouse is closed through Christmas but the order will be waiting for them to process upon their return.

45 spools of 100% cotton thread, 306 yards per spool, $360 for the entire set
The next kit, Snow Angels, features one of our favorite winter themes -- snowmen, of course.  The designer designed these cute snowmen as ornaments, each holding a letter to spell out "Joy".  We thought it would be cute to change the pattern and create a wallhanging featuring the little guys spelling out Joy.  Your $32.95 kit includes the pattern with our changes, cotton fabrics by Lynette Anderson, wool for applique and binding.

Quilt finishes 22 1/2" x 22 1/2".
If you need a last minute stocking stuffer how about a cute metal tin with a hinged top?  These little tins are the perfect size to tuck in your stitching bag, purse or pocket.  We keep one in our stitching bag containing a small bottle of Roxanne's glue, a needle and a small pair of scissors.  The one in our purse has M&Ms (of course!).  If you'd like us to help you fill your tin(s) just let us know when you place your order (we even have M&Ms we can include).

2 1/2" x 3", $2.45 each
This week for our "when it's gone, it's gone" section, we are featuring a cute Christmas wallhanging, Merry Christmas.  The kit is regularly priced $16.95 but we are offering it at a 30% discount ($11.87).

Kit includes pattern, fabrics for the top, binding and backing fabric.  It finishes 13 1/2" x 18 1/2".

Only 2 kits are left so don't hesitate if you want this.
As we mentioned, this will be our last newsletter of 2019.  It's been a busy but exciting year.  We are eager to share 2020 with you. 
See you soon!
