This weather in Iowa just won’t quit! But Dani and I got to soak up the sun and hospitality of California at the “Road to California” show the end of January. Thank you to all of you who stopped by our booth – as always, we love meeting all of you! And a big Thank You for making this show a big success for us! Both of us think we can now hang on till Spring arrives! Let’s hope it comes soon!
Many of you have purchased our “Joshua’s Prayer” pattern and panel. Thanks to a nice gentleman in California, we discovered that some of you might be missing a page of the pattern. If you do not have a page 3 in your envelope, please let us know, and we’ll send it right out to you. This page has the directions to make the smaller Bell Pull as seen on the front of the pattern. We are so sorry for this error, and have “fixed” the patterns here at the shop.
I wanted to share some fun products with you. First, I hate burning my finger when I’m pressing, (especially when I’m ironing binding!) so I have 2 notions that should help with this. Dritz has a Thermal Thimble that is a heat resistant finger protector. There are 3 in the package for all finger sizes for only $5.99. Also, Dritz has a Finger Pressing Sleeve. This is a knitted heat resistant “sweater” for your finger. It does not stop the steam like the first one, but will help you with pressing open seams. This also retails for $5.99.
We also have some fun Fat-Quarter Bundles made up for you. We received some bright and fun fabrics from “In The Beginning Fabrics” and made these bundles of 5 just for you. Each bundle is priced at $14.95. Stop in, or give us a call, and we’ll send one your way!
We have received many bolts of fabric. There’s fun spring colors, black/yellow/and white, green batiks, and some lovely light grey batiks. Stop in soon to see these, plus the brights from “In The Beginning Fabrics”.
Check out our Ultimate Quilt Show Tote Bag kit on our web-site. It uses pre-quilted sewing fabric and our “Things Quilters Really Think” panel. We have it on sale this month at 15% off. Order on line, or give us a call!
Please visit our booth, # 1303, at the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival XXV in Hampton, VA. Feb. 27 – March 2nd. Be sure to say Hi to Dani and check out our new products.
