We have had a few changes around the shop since Shop Hop! Marilyn retired and has been on several fun trips with her children and grandchildren and has left the shop in the hands of a new owner. Ione VanWagenen is the new owner and her world has revolved around fabric for over 15 years.
We are excited over all of the new changes around the shop. We have been receiving large shipments of fabric on a daily basis and have a fresh new look in the store so if you haven't been in the shop since July, come and see us!
Our Fall Celebration Week is September 6-10, and we will offer our usual 20% discount for class sign-ups during that week, as well as some great specials! We also have a trunk show featuring Ann Hansen, of Pixie Girl Quilts. She has two books coming out soon and we are excited have the privilege of displaying her latest designs! We also have fabulous instructors for our fall class line-up and have an exclusive Block-of-the-Month program to share with you.
We continue to support all of the fabric cards and Sew N' Tell classes that we have had in the past and are receiving all lines of Jo Morton fabrics (see newest quilt above) for all of you Jo lovers!
We have added more to our already large selection of batiks for all of you batik lovers and those of you who want to begin a beautiful new project with batiks. We also have a few new kits that have been very popular; Dr. Seuss Twister and Dem Bones, both of which use the Twister tool.
Last, but not least, we are pleased to announce that we have been chosen as one of the
11 featured shops in the Fall 2011 issue of Quilt Sampler magazine, published by Better Homes and Gardens. Marilyn Cowan and Joyce Weeks designed the quilt and it is a stunning Kaffe Fassett/Amy Butler combination. Kits will be available during Fall Celebration Week.
