S is for Sew


It's hard to believe the first month of 2021 is coming to a close soon.  It's been a busy month for us for several reasons one of which we can finally share.  Late last year we were invited to participate in a FB group to create a super fun project.  We worked with 8 other shops to create a wonderful make believe wool village.  

Starting March 1, 2021 and ending April 30, 2021, each shop will offer a kit and a pattern for a piece of this village.  We are working on the pricing but our pricing will include FREE shipping for the kit.  But that’s not all, you can choose from different settings to complete your own personal village.  Several shops, including us, will offer finishing kits.

To follow along on FB search for It Takes A Village Wool Project Group.  Click the request to join group button.  On Instagram the hashtag is #ittakesavillagewool.  It's going to be so much fun to make this village with you!

Below is a snippet of our block.
"S is for Sew" is our newest kit.  Your $28.95 kit includes the pattern, fabrics for the quilt top, binding and a darling bee button (it looks like we forgot to sew the button on our sample LOL).  Quilt finishes 17 1/4" x 20 1/2".  

If you'd like a thread kit containing Valdani perle cotton #12 please let us know when you place your order.  Debby will be happy to pull threads for you.  
As promised last week, we have fat quarter bundles of a selection of fabrics from Kim Diehl's newest line "Gratitude and Grace".  Each bundle contains 8 fat quarters.  $22 

If you'd like yardage of any of the fabrics, please e-mail or call 479-372-7403.
We received our shipment of Quiltmania magazines.  Carol has made some changes to the magazine and we think it's even better than before.  This issue contains 6 projects as well as the first part of Nathalie Meance's mystery quilt "Pour Helene".  $14.99
We also received our shipment of the Spring issue of Primitive Quilts & Projects magazine.  This issue contains Kay's "Through the Barn Door" quilt pattern.  We are waiting on one fabric to complete our first cutting of kits.  We have an order in for more fabric for a second cutting and are disappointed that the main fabric is is very limited supply until April.  So.....if you know you absolutely must have a kit before May please get your order in quickly.  

You may order Through the Barn Door by visiting our website, e-mail or calling 479-372-7403.
This week for our "when it's gone, it's gone" section, we are featuring a wonderful book published by Quiltmania, "Meanderings of a Quilt Collector" by Jane Lury.  She has travelled  widely and acquired many fabulous quilts including early English and American chintz pieces, French Boutis and quilted Indian floor-spreads. This book has more than 200 wonderful photos, and its author tells delightful stories both of collecting adventures, and fascinating historical research into the sources of quilts, and the amazing materials, cotton, silk, wool from which they were created.  The book also has patterns for 3 quilts.  Hardbound coffee table style book containing 320 pages.  Regularly $56.95 -- now $49.95.  

Please e-mail to reserve.  
See you soon!

Darlene and Debby
