Spring is Here -- Finally!

It's official!  Spring is Here, although in some parts of the country you wouldn't know it!  
We're celebrating with our annual "Spring Fling Shop Hop" starting Friday!  We love seeing our friends come in, excited to find new projects and ideas! 

 We're also happy to see the start of Downtown Restaurant Week -- highlighting the fine restaurants in the historic district!  
 Find the list of participating restaurants at www.mainstreetrogers.com/restaurant-week/ 

Spring also brings new things to the shop!  New books, New yarn, New fabric!  

We're excited to now carry designs from Riley Blake Fabric -- a fun new line called "Treasure" for the young at heart!   This kit will be quick and easy to put together. 

We love the Marcus Brothers Ombre Hand Dyes -- they're perfect for applique AND piecing, and provide beautiful shading, as well as brilliant color in your quilts.  We're now offering fat quarter and half yard collections, as well as yardage!  What does your vision tell you to create with these? 

We love creating kits for you!  We especially like helping you create new decor for your home, like this spring-y design "Modern Flowers Skinny Quilt"!

Since we love embroidery, it's only natural that we dip into the cross stitch area!  We're starting with some kits from Mill Hill to make it easy for you -- 

Keep watching -- we'll bring you more next week!
