Kim Diehl fabric bundles


We are super excited to share our newest fabrics from Kim Diehl.  We have been fans of her style since we discovered her years ago and are slowly building our selection of her fabrics.  We are offering bundles of the bolts we have in stock.  Each bundle will contain the 11 prints shown below.

Fat quarter bundle - $30.25
Half yard bundle - $54.75
One yard bundle - $109.45

You can order on line via our website, e-mail us at or call Darlene at 479-372-7403.  We also can cut yardage from any of the bolts.   
In a previous newsletter we mentioned shipping delays.  The tea towel for the October tea towel of the month is on backorder with an anticipated ship date the end of September.  As soon as we receive the towels, we will process your order if you're on auto ship for the tea towels.  If you aren't on auto ship and know you'll want a kit, please send us an email  $11.95 includes the pattern and towel

If you're looking for a practical and fun quilt you need look no further.  Bunnie M recently used a couple of our Diamond Textile jelly rolls to make a Jelly Roll Race quilt.  What a great quilt!  We were able to get enough jelly rolls to make 5 kits.  The pattern can be found on the web by searching for Jelly Roll Race Quilt.  The pattern is quick, easy and versatile.  Bunnie chose to make her quilt 66" x 66" square but you could make yours rectangular if you wish.

Your Jelly Roll Race kit includes 2 Diamond Textile English Garden jelly rolls and binding.  $59.95

The fall issue of Punch Needle and Primitive Stitcher arrived.  It contains 21 fall themed projects.  $9.99

If we had time we'd translate many of the designs to wool applique.  For example, the cross stitched pillow in the upper right hand corner would make an adorable wool applique piece.  It also would be a beautiful punch needle project......let your creativity blossom.....

This week for our "when it's gone, it's gone" section, we are featuring a cute friendship kit.  It finishes 5" x 7".  Your $12.95 kit includes the pattern, fabrics for the top and binding.    

We have only 1 kit left.  Please e-mail if you'd this kit.  

Hope to see you soon!

New Redwork Project


We hope you enjoyed your Labor Day weekend.  We spent a quiet day doing our normal routine.  Maybe it's all in our mind but it seems like the air gets crisper and the leaves start turning right after the holiday.  

We're excited to share one of Debby's newest little quilts.  If you get a chance to visit the shop in person, you must take a few minutes and look at the quality of her stitching.  Several people have commented her stitches are so perfect that it looks like the stitching was done by a machine.  We reworked the pattern for "My Little Year" and your kit will include the changes we made.  Your $24.95 kit includes the pattern, fabrics for the top, binding and backing fabric.  It finishes 16 1/2" x 20 1/2".  

Our friend Jane H recently finished "Stars and Stripes".  This is a quick and easy pattern.  Our kit features a mixture of Moda fabrics including French General fabrics.  Your $56.95 kit includes the pattern, fabrics for the top and binding.  The quilt finishes 56" x 70".  When you place your order, let us know if you'd like us to help you choose backing fabric.  

We are taking pre-orders for "Red and Green Quilts".  The book contains 14 patterns of two color quilts from fourteen designers including Jo Morton, Lisa Bongean, Edyta Sitar and Paula Barnes.  The book is supposed to ship mid-November but we are noticing ship dates are being moved quite often.  We are also noticing many items are out of stock with no projected replacement date.  If you'd like to be on the pre-order list, please e-mail  $28.99

This week for our "when it's gone, it's gone" section, we are featuring Pretty Petals.  The kit includes the book,  background cotton, wool for applique and binding.  It finishes 42" x 42".  $99.95

We have only 1 kit left.  Please e-mail if you'd this kit.  

Update from Kay.  My sister and I had a wonderful experience at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester MN.  The doctor spent a lot of time investigating Donna's case and was able to properly diagnose her condition and prescribe the correct medicine.  Thanks to everyone who sent private messages of support and details of your experience.  
Hope to see you soon!
