SALE....SALE....SALE...Begins This Saturday!

Morning Everyone!

Just a quick reminder that the fabric sale at the shop begins this Saturday, August 30th through Saturday, September 7th.  All bolted fabric is 20% off, you get an extra 5% if you finish the bolt.  All patterns, precuts, kits, books, etc, are going to be 10% off.  The only thing not included is the batting and quilting services.  Stop by and see us when you can during our sale and see what you can get at a great price.

If any of ya'll have quilt tops you have been wanting to bring down for Ms. Sandra to quilt, now would be a great time.  Her turnover right now is about 4-6 weeks instead of two months.  If you have quilts or quilted projects you are wanting for the Holidays, now is a great time to bring them by.

Everyone have a safe and fun Labor Day weekend.

Cancelled Class

Morning All:

I want to apologize to the ladies who had signed up, however, there was not enough people definitely signed up for the beginner's quilting class for the class to go ahead.  I will try to reschedule another beginner's quilting class sometime in the spring of 2014.

Hope you all have a great rest of your week!  Take Care!

Morning All:

I found out late last evening that the shop is going to be closed today, Friday, August 16th.  Ms. Margaret has decided to accompany Sandra and Larry to the hospital for Larry's surgery.  The shop will be open tomorrow, Saturday the 17th, so stop by and see us then if you can.  We apologize for such short notice!

Hope you all have a fab weekend!  Take Care!

Beginner's Quilting Class - August 24, 2013 @ 9:00 a.m.

Hey Everyone!

Have ya'll ever had a project that you started that began acting like the Tribbles from the original Star matter how many blocks you completed, it seemed a never ending process?  Well, I had one of those this summer.  I began a quilt made entirely of pinwheel blocks when I went on Vacation the last week of May and I just finished it last Saturday.... 10 weeks.... seemed like a lifetime as I always have a long list of quilts I am dying to try.  In fact, I began three other projects while I was trying to complete the pinwheel quilt.... now I need to finish all those.... I think I am in some sort of never ending cycle, and I guess it must be fun because I just keep going, huh????

I wanted to remind everyone that I have a beginners quilting class scheduled to begin on August 24th.  However, at this moment I only have one lady confirmed to attend.  I have set aside nine Saturdays for this beginner's session.  We need at least two more participants for this class to go ahead.  If you are interested, please email us at or call the shop at (931) 682-3746 and let us know.  The cut off date for signing up is next Wednesday, August 21st.  If we don't have three confirmed participants by that date, the class will be cancelled.  The cost of the nine week session is $95 per person.  I will provide a list of materials required once the class is confirmed.

Another couple of quick reminders for everyone:  we have a sale going on beginning Friday, August 30th and ending Saturday, September 7th.  Stop by and say hello and see what deals you can pick up while you are visiting!  Also, don't forget we have three new Moda lines of precuts on order with coordinating bolts.  These are Midwinter Reds by Minck & Simpson, Wish You Were Here by Holly Taylor and Soho Chic by Sandy Gervais.  We have also ordered new patterns for these.  As soon as they come in, we will start on shop examples and invite everyone down to enjoy!

Hope ya'll have a great week!  Take care and we hope to see you soon!

P.S.  Everyone keep Sandra and Larry in your thoughts and prayers....Larry is having sinus surgery on Friday the 16th.  All good thoughts are appreciated!
