Hi all!

If you are reading this early Saturday morning, I want to remind you that Newton's "TASTE OF CHRISTMAS" continues today.  So does the mild weather and so it is a perfect day to come to downtown Newton!  30 stores in the downtown area are participating and we have a passport with map for you here at the store.   When you visit just 25 of the stores in the next week, you will be entered in the GRAND PRIZE DRAWING - more than $700 in gift certificates from the participating merchants!  We are also sampling "treats" and handing out recipes TODAY.  Come visit!

Again, more new things are in the store and on the web!

 In the "WEARABLES" department, there are several new patterns, including this EASY SILHOUETTE vest pattern from INDYGO JUNCTION:


 CUDDLE UP and SNUGGLE UP, textured fabrics from Michael Miller in yummy colors are on-line now! 



Today is also SECOND SATURDAY and I will be presenting the pieced block GRANDMOTHER'S FAN at 9 a.m.  

 Later in the day I will be showing QUILTSMART products, including the EASY LONESTAR.  Plus a great idea for making a quick MANTEL COVER.  Stop in any time!


Have a great weekend.  I hope you can stop in and visit us soon!

Hi all!

My parents arrive tonight, so I have lots of clean-up to do in this house!

But I just wanted to drop you a quick note reminding you to take a look at the What's New section of the web store or better yet, stop into the store in Newton!  

Newest Additions link:

We have lots of fabric that hasn't made it onto the web yet.  Including the newest CUDDLE UP and SNUGGLE UP textured fabrics from Michael Miller in yummy colors! Great new MODA BABY FLANNELS and PRINTED FLEECE too.

Lily (my 17 year old daughter) and I had a great time at Quilt Market in Houston.  She quickly fell into step and grasped our task of seeing as  much as possible, getting a feel for all that is available and making some big decisions!  And she LOVED it!  yea!

I tried to look at everything through her "younger" eyes before I pronounced judgments.  She made lots of good observations and sound suggestions.  I was most interested to see that she also likes the great variety of styles and fabrics that we carry in the store.

Of course, I knew she'd like Michael Miller's, Free Spirit's and Alexander Henry's bright, CONTEMPORARY fabrics.  And we ordered lots more of these!  GREAT COLORS -  pinks, aqua, lime green, corals, misty blue and chocolate brown!

Over the past 20+ years I've noticed the subtle changes in the store's product mix as our own life-stages have changed.  Well, ask a 17 year old to help buy and you'll notice the great new PILLOW PATTERNS and SCRAP BOOK COVER pattern book. Lily is planning her Senior Exit Portfolio (with decorative pages and cover) and her college dorm room for next year too!  :)



Lily also likes "tradition" and we agreed on much of the REPRODUCTION fabrics, especially the 17th & 18th century lines.  There are some great recent discoveries of old quilts which are being used as inspirations for new fabric lines.  More on that later.

 Meanwhile, this is one of my most favorite weeks of the year!  The dozen Maple trees which surround our house are on fire!  The glow in the house during the day is fabulous, even when it is slightly overcast!  And this year my Floridian parents are going to get to enjoy it too. 

Thimbleberries fabric often capture the wonderful feeling of Fall.  We've got a new kit, featuring a printed panel that looks just like appliqué.  Use THIMBLEBERRIES "FALL FOLK ART" pattern and fabrics to create this great wall quilt or large throw.


NEXT WEEKEND we participate in Newton's annual TASTE OF CHRISTMAS.  You can win prizes, gift certificates, and snack on lots of yummy treats when you visit many of our fine Newton businesses.  

THURSDAY November 10th I'll be presenting an OVERVIEW OF QUILT MARKET.  I'll introduce as many of the new products, patterns, books and fabrics as time allows!  This happens at 10 a.m., during our usual SEWING CLUB meeting time.  But all are welcome to attend this once for FREE, so come if you can!

FRIDAY AND SATURDAY the 11th and 12th we'll be demonstrating a variety of NEW PATTERNS, NEW PRODUCTS and techniques including WOOL NEEDLE-FELTING, QUICK LONE STAR, NEW- EASY TABLE RUNNER, & MORE.  Watch your emails for a specific schedule.

And as all quilters love to belong to groups and GATHER, we think that this wonderful ArtQuilt from  McKenna Ryan, "THE GATHERING" will make a perfect decoration for the entire winter or even all year!  Kay has made our model and put together the kits - 100% BATIKS.  Come take a look or click here:


Yes, they're selling, but we've been busy re-cutting kits for these darling wall hangings from Patch Abilities.  Be sure to take a look.  They are quick and easy to make and just might be the perfect gift!




 My unique kit using Moda's WUTHERING HEIGHTS fabrics is still available.  The kit includes a CHARM PACK of 5" squares, fabric for binding & backing, batting and of course, my EXCLUSIVE PATTERN for a "Ribbon Runner" for just $19.99.  
Check it out here:


As space becomes more and more of an issue, with NEW ARRIVALS, more fabric has been moved to the back SALE ROOM.  

Please check out our SALES department on line for some new, extra special fabric bargains:

Well, I'd better stop procrastinating and go clean a bathroom or two and make a bed!  Then I have to finish planning my Thimbleberries project for tonight's class.  AND I just noticed that I haven't posted any of those projects to the web site since August - horrors!  I'll search for those images, pockets on a jacket and a "Welcome" wall quilt, get those posted and send another email to those of you who are doing my OTHER QUILT CLUB.

Have a great weekend and hope you can stop in an visit us soon!

I still can't believe it's been nearly two weeks since the Central Kansas Quilt Shop Hop!  We had a FABULOUS weekend!  It is always fun to pack the store with happy quilters!  The shop owners met the following Tuesday and drew names of prize winners.  One of the two sewing machines was won by a woman from Washington who comes every year to do this Hop with her mother.  Congratulations!  How neat!  Planning for the 2007, 8th Annual Central Kansas Quilt Shop Hop has already begun, so mark your calendars now - October 6, 7, 8, 2006.


I do have my unique SHOP HOP QUILT hanging in the store and my pattern is available.  It is called "MIDNIGHT IN A GARDEN OF SUNFLOWERS".  Whether you bought block kits from the other shops or if you need the entire kit, we have a bundle for you!  Click here for details:


The exclusive batik is still available as well.  It was very well received and we have reordered all 3 colors.  I do still have some of the Amethyst available now and the Autumn coming early December and the Harvest should arrive in January, if not sooner.  So please feel free place orders now and we'll be sure to cut and send yours as soon as it arrives.



We have many wonderful new kits available, like OCTOBER JACK another Jack-o-Lantern made by Judy!



We got so excited before Shop Hop that lots of new models were made and kits cut.  Please check out all these darling wall hangings from Patch Abilities on my WHAT'S NEW page now!  




 Have you taken a look at my new kit from Moda's WUTHERING HEIGHTS fabrics?  
The kit includes a CHARM PACK of 5" squares, fabric for binding & backing, batting and of course, my EXCLUSIVE PATTERN for a "Ribbon Runner" for just $19.99.  
Check it out here:


And my SPECIAL OFFER, in honor of the on-line FabShopHop happening this month, continues. EVERY ORDER placed on-line (for a limited time) will receive a FREE PATTERN for "Charlotte's Ribbon Runner".


On Saturday Lily (my 17 year old daughter) and I are heading to QUILT MARKET in Houston.  This is a first for Lily and she is excited.  I'm anxious to see her reaction to ALL of the fabrics!  I'll include a full report next time!

Until then, have a great rest of the week and weekend.  I hope we see you soon!
