Hi all!

Another busy week, but at least the weather, all across the country, seems to have moderated.  Yea!

Now, don't get antsy!  It is TOO EARLY to garden here in Kansas!  There is still time to sew! :)

Today, Thursday Feb. 17th, there are 3 sessions of our 

I am thrilled with Mary's version of Marti Michell's GOOD NEIGHBORS pattern, this month's feature.  Mary, an avid gardener, created a darling quilt of BRIGHT BIRDHOUSES! 

In today's class, Mary will demonstrate how to make these great HOUSE BLOCKS, as well as cover the latest sampler block in the AMERICAN BEAUTY QUILT, and several more FARMER'S WIFE blocks.  Yes, it is a bargain of a class! 

Each month Marti Michell features a different TEMPLATE SET or RULER for a new FROM MARTI & ME pattern.  This month's project features SMALL HOUSE TEMPLATE SET J.

 Check it all out here, and please, come to class if you can!  Visit and if you decide to join, we'll prorate this year's class fee!  There are lots of advantages, including special offers for CLUB MEMBERS ONLY.  Come join the fun!

This CLUB/CLASS meets at 10 a.m., 1:30 & 7 p.m.

See details on the QUILT KIT here:


Last week I introduced another new quilt kit, 


These are entirely different types of birds than those who would inhabit Mary's bright little birdhouses!

Artist Rod Frederick has captured the wild beauty of these birds and their natural setting.  The fabric is printed with beautiful detail, and our featured quilt, using these fabrics, is charming.  

Click here for details on our 
MAJESTIC WINGS quilt kit which starts with a PANEL & coordinating fabrics:


And watching all those birds from the safety of the house window are FIFI & FIDO!  

Check out ANNA GRIFFIN'S newest, cutest, cat & dog fabric.

Great features & coordinates for a total of 12 fabrics.


Very popular!  

We had to cut more, but you can still order Mary's small LITTLE CLOVER quilt kit.  Her own design, you can only get it here at Charlotte's Sew Natural!  

The instructions are included in the kit featuring gorgeous Hoffman fabrics.  

Celebrating SPRING and St. Patrick's Day, this little quilt fits perfectly on the wire TABLE STANDS, or lays flat on a table or can be pinned to the wall.  Or slip a pillow in and cheer up a chair!

You can join the class, receive the kits by mail or just pick them up in the store.

In class, Mary will teach a variety of appliqué methods, hand and machine.  The class meets 1st Thursdays at 10 a.m. & 7 p.m.  Second class will meet March 3.

So much happening in the news lately.  One line in a story on the economy caught my attention today.  

The news analyst said "While the cost of many commodities is going up, including cotton, the consumer isn't paying more  for cotton socks or cotton sweaters".  What store has he been in?!

If you've noticed that the price of QUALITY QUILT FABRICS has been rising, and you've wondered why, it is because of cotton's short supply & high demand.  

If you would like to know more, many different fabric company owners & officers have contributed with detailed explanations in this most informative article.

 Here at CHARLOTTE'S SEW NATURAL, we continue to offer you the BEST SELECTION of COTTON FABRIC available.  

You can still SAVE 20% EVERY DAY off all regularly priced merchandise when you join CHARLOTTE'S SHOPPER'S CLUB.  Details on this annual club can be found here:


Looking forward to seeing you soon!
