It's Fall in NWA!

It's been a busy few months, and we're all settled in our new home!  We love the atmosphere of the high ceilings, wood detailing and being all together in one building!  Our sitting and stitching and classroom areas are awesome and the Yarn Shop upstairs enjoys all the benefits of natural lighting.
We continue to carry a wide variety of fabrics -- Jo Morton, Renee Nanneman, Kaffe Fassett, Amy Butler just to mention a few.  We still love to help friends choose fabrics for quilts and create samples to provide inspiration!
Our wool room is a favorite spot -- right now we have lots of kits for the holidays!  Designs for fall and Christmas are so much fun in wool applique!
This month we began "Freedom Rings" -- a block-of-the-month design from Paula Barnes and Marcus Brothers Fabrics.  Rheba made the incredible quilt hanging in the shop.

Beginning in November will be two more block-of-the-month designs --

 "Baltimore Folk" Quilt designed by Dawn Heese, Linen Closet Designs --
and the "Flower Basket Medallion" quilt -- designed by Kim McLean, created by Brenda from Kaffe Fassett fabrics.  We'll have details posted soon! 

In the Yarn Shop, we're having fun with classes using the "One Skein Wonders" book -- next up is the Baby Gnome Hat -- what a great Christmas gift!
Bring your knitting and crochet projects in every Monday evening from 5:30 to 7:30 pm for "Knit Nite" -- Danielle will be here to help you and other friends will encourage you!
Check out all our Classes posted on the website Here.  Learn some basic machine piecing skills and more in the Technique Tabletoppers Classes. 

We'll be back soon with more new things!
Only Because of His Grace,
