Exciting Week!

With the "official" end of summer -- Labor Day -- we look forward to an exciting week!  First, we are participating in the "Jingle Bell Hop" on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.   This will be great fun, and shops will be ready to inspire you for the upcoming seasons and holidays!  Purchase a $5 passport and receive a portion of the fabric from each store to complete the "Smashing" Jingle Bell Hop wall hanging!  Complete passports will qualify for the drawing to win the Grand Prize of a Brother SB3129SM - or a $50 gift certificate from each shop!  All participants will receive goodie bags!  Join the fun!
During the shop hop, we'll have a special trunk show of quilts, wool applique and punchneedle designs by Missie Carpenter of Hallbrook Designs.  Missie will be in the shop to meet you on Saturday, September 7, in the morning, and then teaching her class on "English Paper Piecing 5 Ways!"  Her class is full, but we are taking a waiting list.

You can see a variety of Missie's patterns on our website Here.

Missie's popular quilt "Life in the Midwest"  features LOTS of hexagons -- surrounded by applique -- it's a stunner!
Among her designs for wool applique is "Indian Summer Little Woolie" -- make in time for Fall! 
Combine techniques in "Primitive Pineapple Welcome" -- punchneedle takes the place of applique in this small quilt!

Come see us if you can -- or shop online to enjoy Missie's patterns!

More next week!

Keep stitching!
