Fabrics and patterns and books - oh my!  It has now gotten to the point where, when I see a courier drive up, my heart quickens and the mind rushes with ideas for the products they're about to bring in.  Add new notions to that list as well.  I can't believe September is next week.  So much to do - so little time.  (Where have I heard that before!)  Class samples are starting to come in.  The class sample for beginner quilters (those who have never quilted before or who want a refresher in the basics) is here, as well as the Quilt-As-You-Go sample and Fat Quarter Fun sample.  More class samples will be up soon for you to see.  Stay tuned - more info to come.

The front door to the shop is wide open, letting in delectable breezes that just make me want to set a chair outside and do some handwork - either that or curl up under the counter and catch a few zzzzs.  Weather like this is sooooo relaxing.  Hope all of you are enjoying these cooler, less humid days.  I know I am. 

So here's another delectable breeze that just came in this morning.  Moda's Over the Rainbow precuts:  2 colourways of Jelly Rolls and Charm Packs*.  To celebrate this long-awaited arrival, they will be added to the Sale of the Week this week at 20% off, along with Kona solids.  So let the breezes whisk you out to enjoy the day.

*More on the way.

Just arrived from 'Paris':  The Eiffel Tower/Flower along with Tea for Two.  Two bolts of really cool designs featuring the Tower and a delectable tea in Paris theme.  So many possibilities here. 

We are gradually increasing our black and white selection.  So, two new black and white prints, one is white polka dots on black background and the other a small white floral on black have been received today. 

This week:  Kona solid coloured fabrics are 20% off.

I have to apologize for the lack of photos on this site.  Am trying to rectify this.  Hopefully, will be able to find the cable that connects the camera to the computer for uploading the photos.  Or maybe it's time to invest in a better camera.  We'll see, soon enough.  :)

Today and tomorrow, Friday and Saturday, August 17-18, we have a special 5 month anniversary sale going - 30% off everything in the shop.  Can't believe it has been 5 months since we opened on March 17th.  Time flies when you're having fun, they say. 

Check out next week's featured sale!

The Kona Cotton Solid stand just came in the door.  Now we have a distinct display rack that will hold all of our Kona solids, and then some.  Looks fantastic!  Thanks, Dave!
Christmas - I love it.  Can't get enough of Christmas.  Yes, I hear the groans.  Well, for those who groaned, look away from your screen.  We've just received a new collection of Christmas fabrics called 'Away in a Manger'.  Now you can look back at your screen -we also received two winter-themed collections called 'Winter Magic' and 'Frosty Friends'.  Also a new panel called 'Teddy's Christmas Eve' is here - absolutely adorable.  There is nothing wrong in making a winter-themed quilt or wallhanging or table accessories that can be used all winter long.  Hmmm....bottle totes, tea or coffee cozies, egg cozies (yep - eggs deserve cuddling [not curdling], too), silverware caddies in groups of 6-8 or individually, placemats, tablerunners, bedrunners, sofarunners, ornaments, garlands, fireplace mantel covers...endless possibilities.  Some of the above will be offered in upcoming classes.  The class schedule is coming along nicely and will be published soon.

The Stonehenge Woodland collection is here in all 3 colourways!  To check out these wonderful fabrics, go to the Northcott website
http://www.northcott.net -patterns are available as well for this collection.  Then you can check them out in person at the shop.

We are currently setting up our teaching schedule for the Fall season (Sept.-Dec.).  If there is a particular class you would like to take at the shop, let us know.  Many of you have indicated that you would like to take a beginner's how-to-quilt class - it will be offered in September.  Other beginner classes will be offered as well.  And we certainly haven't forgotten everyone else.  We hope you will like our class offerings and have a ton of fun creating in class and making new friends.

For those of you who are looking forward to painting/dyeing classes that were to be offered towards the end of August, hangeth thou in there - we're waiting for our PFD (prepared for dyeing) fabrics to come in from Kona.
