OK Mother Nature.....we have had more than our share of snow and cold temps......we are ready to see spring weather.  The newsletter this week will be a little different than usual because we aren't able to get to the shop to photograph our newest projects.  We thought we'd share photos of projects from one of our favorite designers, Margott Jenek.  Be sure you read all the way to the bottom because we are offering preordering for a new gadget we discovered.  

Margott is a master at combining fabrics with different textures into beautiful creations.  She often uses Diamond Textiles to create her masterpieces.  

The Four Seasons table topper always brings a smile to our face every time we look at it.  Margott clearly explains how to construct it.  Your $54.95 kit includes fabrics to make the quilt top including tabs, wool (the birds and rabbit are wool), backing fabric and binding.  The pattern must be purchased separately and is $22.95.  It finishes 30" in diameter.  
Scraps of my Life was the first Margott quilt Kay made.  At first it may appear daunting; however, Kay suggests making 2-4 blocks at a time.  Before you know it, you'll have all the blocks made.  Your $74.95 kit includes fabrics for the top, tabs, borders and binding.  The pattern is not included and must be purchased separately for $27.95.  
Pillows are a great way to add a fun accent to your decorating.  Margott's "Pillowcase Collection" pattern contains patterns for 4 pillows.  We have made kits for one of the pillows.  Your $39.95 kit includes the pattern, fabrics to make the pillow top, wool for applique, wool & cotton for the tabs and backing fabric.

The pattern includes instructions to make 3 additional pillows; however, materials to make those pillows are not included in this kit.

Finishes 9" x 17 1/2"

If you'd prefer to use your own materials, the pattern is available for $22.95. 

If you start the "Warm Wishes" quilt, you'll have it ready for winter decorating later this year.  We love this quilt so much we plan to keep it hanging all year long.  Your $94 kit includes fabrics to make the quilt top, borders and binding. The pattern is not included and must be purchased separately for $24.95.  

Finishes 55" x 55"

Please visit our website to see all the Margott patterns we have in stock.  If you see a pattern and would like us to put a kit together for you, please let us know.  We are happy to put together custom projects. 

This week in lieu of our "when it's gone, it's gone" section, we are featuring a new very handy gadget.  Have you ever pulled a ball of Valdani out of a tangled mess only to find the color number tag has disappeared.....or maybe your sewing threads are a jumbled mess.  Thread peels will keep your thread spools from unwinding. They are made of rubber that adjust to any spool diameter.  You can write the number on the thread peel so it can be used over and over.  

We have peels on order.  With the inclement weather we expect shipping delays but anticipate we should be able to ship by next Thursday.  Each bag contains 12 assorted colors - $8.76 per bag.  
We aren't sure if we will be able to open this Saturday, Feb 20.  If you're planning a trip to the shop please give us a call before you come.  479-372-7403.
