Happy New Year!

Happy 2010 to you and yours!

Kay cleaned out one of her closets, so lots of fun fat quarters are being cut!! We are also creating a fat eighth area for the appliquers of the world! It has been wonderful to touch and feel the fabrics! I got to cut some yesterday from a project we did a year ago from 3 Sisters of touch these lovely pastels!

And as usual in my ADD --- I have decided ADD means Adding Duties Disorder! I start a project which means I see things that lead me to other idea (ok, another word for project!) and then I have the entire shop trashed and no energy to put it back together! Besides the computer project I had to work on these past 2 is what else I have gotten into!

Linen! I love it! I want to make something out of it, wool and cotton...but I am not there yet --- so it is time to let the world know we need to sell it! We have a beautiful selection of cross stitch linen that is on sale for 50% off! We will cut you any size you need! We will keep it on sale for you during January - this is for the linen we have in stock only - sorry!

Cutting this fat eights made us realize we need to plan our Super Bowl Sale! We are going to see a 10 cent increase and more in most of our fabrics, so before we go up we must have a fun event for you! We are doing Super Bowl on Saturday the 16th (yes we know we are off 2 weeks!)! We will have Darlene teaching binding techniques, Amanda teaching how to make a cooooool wool flower pin! And our fat quarters will be on sale for $2.25 and when you purchase 3 you get 1 free! So, you could think of it as a sale on fabric at $6.75 a yard! We will have lots of door prizes and we are ready to spoil each one of you!

Re-doing the ribbon display and seeing what colors we needed!

Working on this great pig quilt! Bev Garside redrew the pigs and made them into razorbacks and has graciously allowed us to put those templates in with this pattern! So, I have been playing in homespun land (which I love and cant find nearly enough of them to satisfy me)! It is a wonderfully fun quilt to try and find the right 20 fat quarters!!

Just when I think it is safe to begin working on the computer system again - Kathleen comes in and starts taking care of one of our wonderful customers! While she is taking care of this customer she starts creating the next girl gang from one of the wonderful Red Wagon Books! By the time Kathleen leaves I have a long list of homespuns that are needed!

Have you met Rheba? If you have not, you are missing one talented lady -- look at this piece! Her first rug hooking class from Kathleen! Now, my first class and all pieces afterwards have not been finished nor were they worthy of finishing! I love it when a beginner makes a better sample then the one we use! If you love wool, this is a great class!

Lynette Anderson's trunk show has arrived and others are coming in! We working with Indygo Junction, Pacific Patchwork, Sue Spargo, and others to have trunk shows come in every other month to inspire you!

January will be a fun month! Beginning Quilting, Sewing, Rug Hooking, Applique.... and so much more all kick off this month again! We are also taking names for Jo's Little Women club! Jo is busy and will only have certain times she can mail us the patterns, so call us and let us know!

In case you have not heard it lately, you are wonderful and we do appreciate you!

Please let your friends and family know we are here!

Only Because of His Grace,

Mary E.
