We Have the BEST Customers!

I just wanted to take the time to share a couple of the gifts we received from two of our wonderful customers this week. These antique spools and shuttle were given to us by an out of town customer who thought we could use them more than she had. They are really neat pieces!!
We also got this adorable Christmas collar for our dog, Gracie, from our customer Tamami Stump. She is so talented!!
These aren't the best pictures, but my dad was cooking while I was trying to photograph her, and she was WAY more interested in the food than smiling for the camera.

Thank you so much to both of these ladies and to all of you! We really do have the best customers!! Happy Thanksgiving : )
Until next time...

Some Holiday News

First off, we will be closed on Wednesday, November 24th and Thursday, November 25th in observance of Thanksgiving. We always do Thanksgiving at our house and my mom does ALL of the cooking. This year we'll have about 30 people over, so she definitely needs that extra day off!! We will resume regular store hours on Friday, November 26th.

Second, we have added a new club to our post holiday schedule! The Liberty Star Club will begin on January 19th, 2011. Renee Plains, a local, but internationally known designer, will meet with club members quarterly to work on a special project from her vintage collection of patterns. In those months that the club does not meet, club members will receive a kit for one of Renee's patters. The fabrics in each kit will be personally selected by Renee. For more about the club, check out the class schedule or come by the Shoppe!
Speaking of Renee, be sure to visit her blog before Friday in order to be entered into her giveaway. She was part of the Home for the Holidays Buttermilk Basin Blog Hop, and has included a free pattern for an adorable angel in her latest post. If you leave her a comment before Friday afternoon, you will have a chance to win a kit for the angel!!

Finally, if I don't blog again before next week, we want to wish you all a safe and happy holiday weekend!! We are very thankful for your continued support and wouldn't be here without you! Happy Thanksgiving : )

Until next time...

Lily and Will

Not only does Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs create the most adorable patterns, now she has created the most adorable fabric collection called 'Lily and Will.' This collection has everything you need to decorate a nursery for either a boy, girl or one of those "we don't want to know until it's born" scenarios. The line has everything from regular cottons to pre-quilted fabrics, waffle cloths and trim. Here are some ideas of what to do with this cute collection:

Until next time...

It's Here!

We've been waiting for months now, and it's finally here! Our friend, Carrie Nelson, of Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. is now officially a fabric designer, and we are the proud owners of her new line, 'Fresh Palette.' It's bright, fun, cheerful and a must buy! To show off her new line, the talented Miss Nelson designed a new pattern as well (pictured below). As soon as we receive the pattern, kits will be available at the Shoppe or on our website.

The winners of October's fat quarter drawing were Sigrid Wilcox, Linda McDermott, and Nancy Day. Congratulations to all three!

Finally, we are now offering 3 new blocks of the month: 'Paris in the Fall' by This and That, using fabrics from French General's new line, 'Maison De Garance,' 'House and Garden' by Jan Patek, using her fabrics from the 'Remembrance' collection and 'Civil War Chronicles' by Homestead Hearth, using Judie Rothermel's collection 'Civil War Chronicles.' Details about these programs can be found here.

Until next time...
