Antique Pumpkins table runner


We have a lot to share so are going to jump right in.  First, we want to share news of a road closure that will make getting to our shop a little inconvenient.  Starting June 1st, the intersection of N. Arkansas St. and W. Walnut St will be closed as part of planned improvements.  The closure is scheduled to last approximately 3 months, depending on the weather.  Detour signs are in place.  For more info visit News Flash • Rogers, AR • CivicEngage (  
As promised in our newsletter last week, we want to give an update on our block of the month openings.  Kay will be taking quilts to the show in Kansas City.  At shows we usually see quite a few block of the months sign ups so wanted to be sure to give you an update in case you've been considering one (or more).

For more info about each of these, please visit our website  Click on the Block of the Month tab and you'll be able to get all the info about each program.

Manor House - this is actually a "Row of the Month" program - you'll receive fabric and wool to make one row a month.  Finishes 60" x 75". 5 months - Month 1 is $32.95 plus pattern for $24 - Months 2-5 $32.95 
A Prairie Journey - 12 quilts in 12 months.  Month 1 - $25.99 for the book and $19.95 for the quilt kit. Months 2-12 - $19.95 for the quilt kit.  The quilts vary in size with the smallest being 12 1/2" square and the largest 30" square.  
The Santa, The Tree, The Turkey and Me - an 8 month program - finishes 36 1/2" x 41 1/2" - $24.95 per month
Birdsong - 9 month program - Month 1 $28 ($10 for the block and $18 for the pattern). Months 2-9 are $10 per month - finishes 35" x 35".
Even though we aren't officially into summer, we are already thinking about fall stitching.  Our newest kit, Antique Pumpkins, is the perfect way to get in the fall mood.  Your $45.95 kit includes the book, background cotton, wool for applique and binding.  The runner finishes 12" x 42".  

We are including some close up photos of this beauty as well as a photo of the book which will be included in your kit.  
If we were to ask for a show of hands of those who are like us and love to collect scissors we are betting many hands across the US would raise.  We received our shipment of new scissors and are so pleased with the detail.  

Your $13.75 pair of cat snips is 3.75" and is finished in a primitive black color.  If you look closely you'll see the kitty tail forms the finger hole.  How ingenious is that!
This week for our "when it's gone, it's gone" section, we are featuring our last 2 pairs of primitive sheep scissors.  They're also 3.75".  $13.75 each

Please e-mail to reserve. 
Hope to see you soon.

Just a quick update


Since this is a holiday week and we know many are enjoying time with family and friends, we will keep our newsletter short and sweet this week.  

We have a few kits left for "Window Garden".  Your $26.95 kit includes the pattern with our changes, fabrics for the top, binding and wool for applique.  Please note fabrics and wool will not be exact matches as our sample; however, they will be similar.  Finishes 13" x 23". 

The hanger is sold separately for $19.75.  
This week for our "when it's gone, it's gone" item, we are featuring a kit designed by Sew Graceful.  Your $49.95 "Anticipation" kit includes the pattern, fabrics for the quilt, wool for applique and binding.  $49.95

We have only kit available so don't delay in e-mailing to reserve it.
We will be back next week and share a new sample (or two).  We'll also have an update on our block of the month programs.  

See you soon!
