Hope you are well. We
continue to move the fabric out and move the fabric in. Click
here to see the NEWEST ADDITIONS to our web site.
Things around here are working their way towards a "new normal".
In the past two weeks it has
been great to see all your smiling faces, feel your joy and
enthusiasm for being in the presence of the all-holy fabric!
Yes, we are fabriholics getting our
fix, and we know the "Thing" when we see it! ;)
So happy to have been able to reopen our doors.
We are also solemnly aware that
Kansas is fortunate to have had less spread of COVID-19 than many other
We are mindful that some of you are still not comfortable venturing
out. Other parts of the US are still not truly open and maybe
none of us is especially safe, so we continue to monitor the situation
and act as responsibly as possible for ourselves and the more
vulnerable among us.
With that in mind, QUILTERS TREK, 2020 version,
(formerly Row By Row) launches this Sunday, June 21st, world-wide.
Above is my block. You can order the kit starting Sunday.
We are still waiting on the official "airplane" fabric to "land", and
won't mail block kits until we have
it. We expect to be able to start mailing July 1st!
Yes, I said "mail". Yes!
We hope you can travel to see us,
but if you can't, we can mail.
If you can't come in, please set
aside about 3 days (hahaha) and carefully peruse my web site to "see it
all", and then place an order. :) $150 in merchandise mails
for free in the US! ;)

day away. To assist your collecting, we now have a couple of
the cutest small shopping carts on wheels!
