Hi all!

Welcome to April!  Is that snow?  Brrrrrrrr.  Come on April, you can do it!  Warm us up!

Snow or not, we're going to warm you up with a HOT weekend special.

The store's 35th anniversary celebration continues this weekend with a shout out to KANSAS TROUBLES, another Kansas business, which is celebrating 20 years designing patterns & fabric for MODA.  I remember when she started up and have always loved & carried Lynn's designs.

We've got a good selection, but we're limiting this sale to what's on-hand now, so move fast!

35% off


1/2 yard minimum cuts!

There's plenty to LOVE here in the store, and we wish you could come in to play with it in person.

But this week, let's continue to play safe, and you're just going to have to appreciate it on our web site.  So CLICK HERE for KANSAS TROUBLES.




The LOG CABIN QUILT is a classic.  Try this SWEET ESCAPE version from Bonnie & Camille.  It starts with a HONEYBUN, 1-1/2" strips pre-cut from MODA. 

The kit includes the pattern, plus all fabrics for the top & binding.  Click here.

​Want a simple project?  Maybe to do with a beginner, or just a relaxing "no-brainer" for yourself?

Simple, fun, happy new CUT SEW pillow panels - FOREST ANIMALS, moms & babies make great "starter" kits.  Sew fun for kids!


​From EDYTA SITAR and ANDOVER FABRICS, Evergreen and Braveheart have been popular.

In March we started a new SEW ALONG using both these lines.

Next week we'll have Part #2. Not too late to join me.


TANNENBAUM from Edyta's Laundry Basket Quilts. I'm pretty excited about it! This quilt makes me happy. ;)

With such busy lives, more and more people are doing sew alongs "from home" instead of attending a class in a store.

Honestly, there aren't enough hours or even days, for us to offer many classes in the shop.

So we are starting a new online option to reach more of you busy quilters. There isn't a charge for the class, just a cost of the kits. We've got the fabric now.


We're figuring out the best way to do this. YouTube or Facebook, or a combination? We'll tell you more soon! Click here to get your kit now.


If you need help logging on to Instagram or Facebook, (below is a shot of our front page), and you can stop in the store, we're happy to try to help you.


When you get there, just click on "FOLLOW". It will change to "FOLLOWING" and you'll be all set.


And if you didn't make it to 2nd Saturday, Block 3 Marcia, my entire presentation is available here on YouTube along with all our other VIDEOS.  Subscribe!

​We're going to have to do April's 2nd Saturday presentation by video as well.  Stay tuned for details!

​This has been quite a week, our first without customers in the store.  We miss you!!

Thank you to all who keep phoning and placing on-line orders.  It feels good to stay busy, and Kirsten likes the exercise, running out to the parking lot, handing off the packages as you "drive by"!  LOL

​Like many of you, I have been making masks for family members.  Denny & Carla wearing theirs in NY.

I've also been fielding lots of questions about masks.  What's the best pattern, style, material?

There's a lot of info out there.  Some of it contradictory.  Some advice just seems wrong.  Today I read a blog that addressed this situation pretty well, in my opinion.  Like this author, I'm not an expert, but I've done some "homework", and now I'm just doing what feels right to me.  You might have a different opinion and you might enjoy Jo's Country Junction blog by clicking here, Masks & Religion.

Click NEWEST ADDITIONS to see our latest on the web.  Kirsten keeps opening boxes, Gwen keeps adding them to the web, and I keep the pipeline full by continuing to place orders.  It's all good!

Be sure to check out the SALE FABRICS & KITS, as we're adding to those too.

Check out CONFETTI BLOSSOMS, an my suggestion of a good project for this Springy group.

Have a great weekend.  And as always, we really, really, hope to see you soon, but meanwhile we love your calls and comments on Charlotte's Sew Natural Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.

Stay safe, and wishing you all perfect health!
