New Sitting and Coffee Area

 We now have a new sitting area at the shop.
Bring your husband or your friend along who does not quilt and they can pass the time with a cup of coffee, tea, or water, and enjoy looking at the paper or magazines.

 I purchased the chairs at ReStore a few months back.

 I took the chairs apart and painted and recovered them.

 We moved the Keurig out from the kitchen, and the water cooler has been ordered.

I made a hanging blackboard using the Chalk Cloth we have in stock.

Doesn't this area look inviting?

Show And Tell

Donna made this pillowcase with our Tula Pink Raccoons. 

Patti made this quilt with Acacia by Tula Pink. It features the adorable Raccoons.

Barbara made this quilt and I had the pleasure to quilt it.

The quilting does not show up that well on the front but it really looks great on the white back.

 Mary made this quilt with fabric that is all from Quilt Vine.

 Mary got this Santa panel from Quilt Vine and found the perfect border for it in her stash.

Mary made this for a friend with fabric from Quilt Vine.

Dashing Through the Snow

Today was the last session of a 3 part class for this wall hanging, 
"Dashing Through The Snow."

They all look great and I believe everyone learned something new.

What do you think? Aren't they wonderful!

Who doesn't love and old red pickup with a Christmas Tree in the back?

Chalkboard Fabric

 Believe it or not, I had never heard of Chalkboard Fabric until 2 weeks ago when some customers came in and requested it. So, I ordered a roll of 18 yards and it arrived this week. The customers that requested it came in Friday and purchased 3 yards. Now I have 15 yards of Chalkboard Fabric that I need to sell. I spent last evening on-line searching for things to make with Chalkboard Fabric.

Here are some of the things I found and the link to where I found them.

I feel like this could go on all day. So, as you see there are many things to do with Chalk Cloth.

Show-n-Tell Saturday

On Saturday we held Show-n-Tell. Look at the fabulous quilts we got to view.

 Margaret made this Lightning quilt in a class we held a few weeks ago.

Peggy made this placemat after seeing it demoed at Quilt Vine this Summer. 

Barbara put her own twist on our Monthly Minis.

Participants in Show-n-Tell were entered to win a $20 gift certificate.
Peggy was the winner of that gift certificate.
