For those who celebrated Hanukkah, I hope you experienced many special blessings and successful spins of the dreidel!
For those getting ready to celebrate Christmas, may your days be merry &
bright and full of Joy!
To all, watch for our SPECIAL 12 Days of Christmas, STARTING
We'll start December 26 and go through to the first day of Epiphany, Jan. 6th. Tradition says "3 Magi" bearing gifts. But I like the theory that it was likely a whole host of ethnic Hebrew Rabbis and their entourage! So, we'll have LOTS of GIFTS
& ideas with specials attached! You'll be able to order
something each day and we'll ship everything together on January
7th! Or you can save postage by picking them up here at the
store. Watch for emails from me. ;)
Plan to treat yourself after the holidays.
Possibly, you'll have lots of
GIFT CERTIFICATES in hand! Especially if you ASK
for them! :)
We are still making
daily trips to the post office, and as great as they are, I am unsure
as to what the USPS will still deliver by Monday. Sooooo . . .
order it now, you'll still get it, but it may be into the 12 Days of
CERTIFICATES, on the other hand, can travel by email and are very
fast! LOL I will even check my email at 2 pm (Central
time) on Christmas Eve, as I am closing at the downtown store, to see
if there are any last minute orders! :)
Here is the link for you
to send to your family as a suggestion for
GIFT CERTIFICATE purchases!
Another great GIFT IDEA,
for a "gift that keeps on giving" -
SHOPPER'S CLUB MEMBERSHIP!
Members save 20% off
all regularly priced merchandise, on the web and in the downtown
store, plus 30% off the week of their birthday.
SPECIAL COLLECTION OF BOOKS

We have a table full of
BARGAINS! Too many single titles to put on the web for now, but
we'll try to add some soon!
FABRIC is now ON SALE in the DOWNTOWN STORE and on the web
NEW FABRIC continues to arrive!
I guess we're just going to have to count it! :)
And, I'm always inspired to make a
pillow case or two! LOL
Need any "last minute
gifts" for young (or old) men?! :) We just got some great
new BBQ fabric in too.
This time I figured out an efficient
bundle with enough fabric so you can make both a FULL SIZE PILLOW CASE
& a TRAVEL SIZE PILLOW CASE.
We've got two new bundles.
Check them out here:
Starting in January, our SECOND SATURDAY, will be
called SATURDAY SOIREE, and features either red/white or blue/white

There is a FREE PATTERN from Red
Rooster's web site,

I am working on my quilt right now.
I am doing a cross between the THROW size and the KING size. I'm
making it square (unlike the QUEEN size) and piecing the middle section,
but stopping after that. It fits very nicely on the back of my couch
this way, and looks very festive!
pattern is well written making simple work of a complicated looking quilt!
Marked down 25%, limited to stock on
hand. These fabrics are still at the Charlotte's Sew Natural, in
Historic Downtown Newton and on the web!
Stop in soon to see the newest
BARGAINS at our Mall store just 4-1/2

MODERN TWIST can be made smaller, or larger - your choice!
20-inch square pinwheel quilt, called MODERN TWIST, has a MODERN look
which can also go more traditional - it all depends on the fabric
choices, of course.
We'd love to see
pictures of all your projects, but especially any you do with these
What hard times we are
living in. Like so many, we've shed tears for the Newtown, CT
victims and their families. Our hearts ache. There are no
We must learn to count
our blessings when we are confused and even frightened.
Meanwhile, we are proud
to live & work in such a generous community. More than 115
