Norma Whaley quilt and book


As we are writing this we are glancing out the window to see ice covered trees with no sun in sight.  As a reminder, if the Rogers schools are closed the shop is closed.  If you have any questions or concerns about whether we are open, please call us at 479-372-7403.  Of course, you can always shop in your comfy pjs on line 24/7.

If you are participating in Lynette Anderson's Peace and Joy block of the month, once you read this newsletter please pull your Month 6 kit and check it.  Some of the patterns contain templates for Month 4 instead of Month 6.  We know some patterns are correct because Kay randomly pulled a pattern to make the sample and her pattern was correct.  The corrected patterns are on the way from Australia.  Once we receive them, we will mail the corrected copy to anyone who lets us know they need one.  If you have an incorrect pattern, please e-mail  

The first quilt we want to share this week "Stars and Holly Berries" designed by Norma Whaley was made by our friend Jean A for her son Richard.  We love how Jean incorporated wool applique into the borders.  Your $139.95 kit includes the pattern, all fabric and wool for the quilt top and binding.  The vine in the border is cotton.  The berries, leaves in the border and stars in the border are wool.  All other applique is cotton.  The quilt finishes 63" x 80".  

If you'd prefer to use your own materials, patterns are available for $10.
If you can't get enough of Norma Whaley's look, you may be interested in her book by Quiltmania.  "My Quilting Legacy" is filled with 18 fun projects.  $42.95 -- that's $2.39 per pattern.....what a great deal!

We are placing an order soon so please e-mail or call 479-372-7403 to place your pre-order.  
The Songbird Sewing Pocket designed by Rebekah Smith is so much fun to make.  It's not only cute but practical as it contains a pocket in which to tuck scissors and notions.  The little bird holds pins and needles.  Your $24.95 kit includes the pattern and all wool to make the pocket (both front and back).  Please note, the wool in your kit will be similar to the wool pictured but not an exact match.  

If you'd prefer to use your own supplies, we have the pattern available for $9.
This week for our "when it's gone, it's gone" section, we are featuring a kit exclusive to Sew Graceful.  Debby designed "Farm Treats" as a small piece that can tuck in a small area in your home or RV.  The kit includes the pattern, fabrics for the top, wool for applique and binding.  Finishes 10" x 18".  

Please e-mail to reserve.  

We will be back next week with a new project to get you ready for spring decorating.  See you soon!

Darlene and Debby
