Plans for Lynette Anderson new Button Club

The dog days of summer have definitely arrived with no end of the hot temps in sight.  We are very content to get out during the early mornings or late evenings and stay home during the middle part of the day.  Of course, staying inside means more time to create and stitch. We always try to look for the silver lining in each of our clouds.

We're continuing our Christmas in July with a darling wall hanging.  The pattern, ABC Santa, is by Cricket Street Wool but as we often do, we changed the pattern from finishing each block as a pillow to creating a wall hanging.  Your $34.95 kit includes the pattern with our changes, background cottons, wool for applique, borders and binding.  It finishes 24" x 24". 
Our tea towel of the month, Happy Camper would make a darling addition to your campsite.  Your $11.95 kit includes the pattern and tea towel.  Let us know if you'd like us to put together a thread kit containing Valdani perle cotton size 12.  If you're on auto ship to receive a tea towel kit each month, Debby will be processing your order. 
We have finalized plans for our newest button club block of the month, Peace and Joy by Lynette Anderson.  The quilt is a mystery so we don't know what the finished quilt looks like.  If you're familiar with Lynette's style, you know she does a lot of applique and embroidery with simple piecing.  Judging by the name and the photo she shared on instagram we know the quilt will include a Santa and trees.

The quilt will include 6 of her hand painted buttons.  The finished size is 17" x 23" and the program will run for 6 months beginning Sep 1.

The monthly cost will be $23.95 per month which will include the pattern, hand painted button and fabrics (wool if required).  Lynette has also designed a special project available only to club participants.  Once we receive your confirmation and payment information, we will e-mail you the file containing the special project.  It should keep you busy until the program starts.

Please call 479-372-7403 with payment info (if you haven't ordered from us in the past) or e-mail to reserve your spot.

We are also offering additional items to help you stitch Lynette's block of the month.  Lynette used Valdani 6-ply embroidery floss for her stitching.  We are offering a thread kit containing the 7 threads she used for $24.

Other optional items:
Stitchery stabilizer - 1 yard - $5.25 (to stabilize blocks containing a lot of embroidery)
Apliquick rods - $42.95
Hugs & Kisses applique paper - $23.95
Fabric glue pen - $7.95 (refills $3.95 for two)
Roxanne's glue baste it - $10.95
Sewline duo marking pen - $7.95
Foxglove embroidery needles - $3.60 per tube (size 10 or 11)

We are noticing longer than normal shipping times so are trying to allow plenty of time for items to arrive for the Sep 1 start.  We also are noticing price increases on many items.  If you place your order now, you are guaranteed this pricing for the block of the month.

The photo below shows some of the optional items.  Please note the wooden thread holders are not included with the thread. 
We want to share a couple more fun gift items.  We promise this will be the last newsletter with gift items (for a while).

Please note these are on backorder until early August.

How about a charm bracelet for your special sewing buddy (or for yourself because you're special)?  The bracelet includes 4 charms.  $20
The charm holder would be nice on a garment but we think it would also look nice on your sewing bag.  $15
We also are able to order charms for the charm holder.  The silver charm pack contains 8 charms (2 of each).  $15

We think these charms would also be cute on a pincushion or small quilt. 
Enamel charm pack - 6 charms (1 of each) $20
This week for our "when it's gone, it's gone" section, we are featuring a cute little piece.  It finishes 5" x 7" and can be framed or hung using an Ackfeld hanger.  Your "Kindness Matters" kit includes the pattern and fabric for $9.95.

We have only 1 kit left so don't hesitate to reserve your kit by e-mailing
Hope to see you soon!

Darlene and Debby
