Dear Customers and Friends,

We’ve been having loads of fun here working on some new projects. Cheri and Nancy picked quilts to make using Jason Yenter’s new Pastiche line and his book Splendiferous Quilts. We showed you the fabrics and book in the October 9 update. Both quilts are ready to go off for quilting so we should have them on display in the shop soon. Susan is working on a sample of Delightful Desert, the new Elizabeth Hartman pattern. She made good progress on it during our Come Sew with Us weekend so I’m guessing we’ll see that one on display soon too.

In case you’re wondering about the new book you’ll see listed below: Knitting Comfortably by Carson Demers. No, we’re not going to start knitting here, but this book has loads of great information on the ergonomics of how to sit and work on our projects. It will surely help us quilters, too. Take a look next time you’re in the shop.

Classes coming soon:
  • Cheri’s Handquilting class meets Tuesdays, November 7, 14 & 21, 6:30–8:30. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn tips and tricks from an experienced hand quilter for finishing your projects.
  • Carole’s Featherweight, Beyond the Basics class is coming up on November 11, 10:00–2:00. This class is a continuation of Carole’s basic Maintaining your Featherweight class.
Coupon book holders: be sure to stop in between November 20–25 (closed Nov 23 for Thanksgiving) with our Thanksgiving Special coupon to receive a discount on stuffing (batt and fiberfil), basting spray, and safety pins for basting your quilt.

If you can't make it into the shop and there is something you are interested in, please call us at (612) 724-1079 and we'll be happy to answer any questions about products and take your order over the phone. Or, visit our website at

There's lots of quilting fun coming along. We hope to see you soon.
