Are you ready to come into the warmth of inspiration and glorious colors?

If you are ready to get out into the cold to come into The Rabbit's Lair we are ready for you!

Jo's Banner Day will be here to greet you along with samples from Jo's Little Women clubs of the past! We are gearing up for Jo's Little Women Club #9! Let us know if you are interested in this club for $35!

We have decided we cant wait for Superbowl Sunday to celebrate fabric and fun! This coming Saturday (Jan 16th) we are going to have our Superbowl Sale and we are going to stay home and watch the Superbowl this year (ok, so I am not going to watch it! I am going to hang out with Friends and stitch!). So, on the 16th we are offering the Big or Bitty Bag class for $45! The class includes a great teacher (Lela Gaither!), the pattern and the peltex 2 you need for the class!! We are offering a demo of a really cool flower pin made out of wool! Amanda Gaither will be here to allow you to make one! We will have all the supplies for you to use! We will also have our Fat Quarters and Flat Folds on sale!! It will be a $6.75 day! Purchase 3 (pre-cut) Fat Quarters for $2.25 and get the 4th one free! Flat Folds will be $6.75 a yard - and yes, you can purchase as little has a 1/2 yard of the flat fold! And then, if that is not enough... we will have treats, door prizes and lots of hugs for each one of you!

For you bloggers, we want to offer a special thank you!I will open at 7:30 Saturday morning and you can come and do your shopping first thing! We have lots of great Jo Morton flat folds!

Only Because of His Grace,

Banner Day is here from Jo Morton!
Inspired by a piece of antique bunting, this group features 2 panel prints, 10 coordinating prints, and 4 colors of ticking (16" wide and 44" wide).

Message from Jo Morton!The "free-to-use" quilt (will probably be called "Celebrate") is currently being machine quilted, then will return to Nebraska for binding and sent to Andover's photographer and to the pattern writer. I'm not sure how long this process will take, but wanted you all to know that we are "working on it."

FYI -- One of the delays in my "free-to-use" patterns is the fact that mine are designed and then sewn by our friend Candy Hargrove. Since they are not created in EQ, we have to wait for fabric to arrive to complete the project for you.

In the meantime, if you want some ideas -- go to my blog (use the link in my signature below to access it) -- read my December 30th entry. There is a picture of the antique bunting and how the group came together, plus why I wanted two different widths of the ticking stripe. I hope my ideas on how to use it all will inspire you to come up with even more projects -- Have fun with this great line!

Hope you all enjoyed the Holidays with family and friends! Here's to a great New Year!!
