Stitcher's Priority


Last week we thoroughly enjoyed reading all the comments we received about the shop photos we included in the newsletter.  We are often humbled and overtaken with joy when we hear from you, our loyal friends.  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for supporting us for so many years.

This week we are starting with a project that makes us smile each time we look at it.  A few of you may remember seeing it at a show last year.  Kay took it to the show and sold out of kits in a few hours.  It's taken months to get the supplies needed to make more kits.  

Your $29.95 "Stitcher's Priority" kit includes the pattern, fabrics for the top, buttons, wool and binding.  it finishes 13 3/4" x 17 3/4".  

Probably several can relate to the sentiment stitched on it - the garden's overgrown, my house is untidy, my hair is a mess, but you should see what I've sewn.
We have two kits left for Dawn Heese's "Peace Hope Love" quilt.  Your $111.95 kit includes Simply Vintage #41 which contains the pattern, fabrics for the quilt top and binding.  The quilt finishes 52" x 52".  
As many of you know, Kay is our resident applique expert.  She has used 100 wt silk thread for hand applique for many years.  Recently she was given several spools of Aurifil size 80 thread to try.  We will update you next week with her thoughts on silk versus the Aurifil size 80 thread.  

In the interim, here is a portion of the quilt border.
This week for our "when it's gone, it's gone" section we are featuring our last kit for Merry and Bright.  The kit includes the pattern, fabric for the top and binding.  Finishes 19" x 25".  $19.95

Please e-mail to place your order.

We are back to our normal opening hours Thurs and Sat 9:00-3:00.  Hope to see you soon.
Debby and Darlene
