lot of sewing done this week! Consequently, I haven't left a lot
of time for my weekly newsletter, which I'm trying very hard not to
turn into a bi-weekly or monthly. LOL (Both the kitchen
& my sewing room are a real mess too!)
quick reminder, tomorrow is SECOND SATURDAY! We'll start at 9
a.m. sharp, and we'll have show & share (come see all the great
new models & fabrics!) It is FREE and no registration
Of course, if you've
been coming for a while, you'll want to bring your finished block to
get your next kit for FREE!
We're on block 8 of 9
different block patterns found in KALEIDOSCOPE
SYMPHONY. You can see the book here.
We still have a couple
of complete kits featuring LUNA NOTTE fabric by Moda's 3
Sisters. Notice above how the center of the blocks are made with

an order on my web site for 3 to 10 yards any BARGAIN FABRIC.
Specify in the notes that you do not want it shipped to you (we'll
eliminate the shipping charges before charging your credit card), but
