Hi all!

Have you heard the news?! 

The Quilt Shop Hop starts October 1st and will run through Saturday October 17th!  Read to the end of this newsletter for a link to all the details, shop hours, etc.

We've extended the shop hop dates.  Hopefully, with 16 days, there won't be tight crowds in the shops, especially with a bit more planning on where and when you start.

Some shops may need to limit the number entering, which means possible wait times.  Need some hand-work to pass the time?  See my LIVE SALE today at 1pm!

PINK GEESE IN THE GARDEN is my unique, modern, queen-size quilt, made with the 10 shop block kits, available Oct 1 - 17 in the participating shops.  Finishing kits will be available.

QAL - Quilt ALongs - Sort of new, lots more appearing online.  With all the "stay at home" orders and tendencies, we're seeing a real boom in these!

I'd like to call your attention to, and direct you towards some I'm interested in doing (but not leading). ;)

Starting this month, SEPTEMBER 14, we have the  TINSEL TREE PATTERNS HERE now!

TINSEL TREE QAL - from Everyday Stitches in KC will be available online.

We always carry, and lots of you already own, the CREATIVE GRIDS 60-DEGREE RULER

Buy the PATTERN & KIT from us, or use up some of your SCRAPS, then follow along on their INSTAGRAM and receive notice of the QAL in your email.

Again, we're here to help in-person, with fabric selection, techniques, etc, and the Quilt Along is all online.


Julie Herman of JAYBIRD QUILTS has a real HIT on her hands.

NEBULA Block Of the Month (BOM), featuring TULA PINK's TRUE COLORS fabrics starts in early 2021.  Interested?  Talk to me. ;)

Meanwhile, she is offering a SKILL BUILDER before Nebula begins, cleverly calling it JOURNEY TO NEBULA!

You will need to purchase her patterns & rulers, but the QAL itself is FREE & online!  If you would like to make these projects in TULA PINK, click here for selection.  (Some is currently on back-order, but we expect to be fully re-stocked before December.)

The goal of JOURNEY 2 NEBULA is to help you familiarize yourself with using the Hex N More & Super Sidekick (or Sidekick) rulers, cutting, & piecing shapes from the rulers.

Online you'll work through small, approachable patterns together with Julie so that when Nebula hits quilt shops in 2021 you are totally ready to get into it. Two weeks will be dedicated to each skill building pattern.

Charlotte's Sew Natural currently has Jaybird's SIDEKICK, HEX N MORE rulers and patterns in stock.

Click here to see the rulers & patterns.  The first one featured is SEASIDE.

As always, we're available to help you right here at the cutting table.  Bring your questions to us, and we'll give you in-person, hands-on help.

NEW Classes

THIRD THURSDAY in September - New QUILT SAMPLER Class - Using a Fig Tree Pattern, which features All Hallows fabric from Moda OR select your own.

We are continuing to take PRE-ORDERS for our EXCLUSIVE FABRIC and to plan the upcoming Central Kansas QUILT SHOP HOP with a spirit of optimism!


Did you know that someone will win a SINGER FEATHERWEIGHT sewing machine again this year?  Last year, the winner was a Charlotte's Sew Natural local customer!  This year, it could be you!  Name will be drawn from the passports with stamps from visiting all 10 stores, but you'll have 16 days to do it this year!  Start planning!

Everyone who visits all 10 shops during Shop Hop will receive a THANK YOU GIFT!  Because we do thank you for all your support, helping us to help you!


We continue to request you wear MASKS while shopping. We're taking care of each other and trying to stay healthy, minimizing our exposures.

We are in the store 5 days a week, Monday through Friday 10 to 5, and on Saturdays 10 to 4.  You can reach us online 24/7! ;)

Have a great weekend.

Hope to see you soon!
