January 23, 2014

Hi all!

Lily & I enjoyed 3 days full of sewing, fun, food & friendship at the Hyatt SEWING RETREAT this past weekend.  

The 2014 Retreats are full, but we are already planning for 2015.  If you're interested in being alerted when details are available, let me know.  The January's Hyatt Retreat will again fall on the 3rd weekend.

It is funny how such an innocent looking antique butterfly could cause so much trouble.  We had an "orphan block" exchange, and shortly after this photo was snapped, it really came to life!  LOL

Check out our Charlotte's Sew Natural FACEBOOK page for more photos.


 Tonight, Ruth will return to teach from Eleanor Burn's newest book, 


A sampler quilt of 16 blocks, done in 10 months.

Meets every 4th Thursday, starting JANUARY 23, 2014, at 6:30 pm.

Details here:


If you are interested in the quilt as pictured on the cover, and can't take the class, KITS ARE AVAILABLE.

 We hope you are close enough that you will consider us your "local". :)

We'll have special guest designer SONDRA DAVISON of OUT OF THE BLUE DESIGNS here showing the techniques used in her latest pattern, FAT QUARTER PLACEMATS.

Sondra will be here in the 
downtown store

Saturday January 25, 

from 3 to 5 pm only.

We'll have a special drawing for those who attend, giving away a set of TABLE RUNNER PATTERNS!

MOOD SWINGS FABRIC available now from WING & A PRAYER for Timeless Treasures!  

Their BEDROOM BASICS pattern starts out with a great concept!  Make a neutral duvet cover (or basic quilt) plus pillows & pillowcases.


Another fun CLASS opportunity!  Great concept for building a "look", with room to change and adapt to many moods! 

Saturday afternoon, 
February 15th, 
1:30 - 3:30.  Lecture/Demo
$15 class + $15 pattern.  

All the different techniques will be demonstrated by me, Charlotte.  I'll start with the simple blocks, then hour-glass, then curved piecing and finally ruched.  Notice my gathered strips on the right and left of this image!  They are a nice touch!

Tips & shortcuts shown, plus suggested products, will make this versatile, neutral quilt or duvet cover a fun project!


allows you to then accessorize your "basic bed" with different toppers, runners & pillows, depending on your MOOD! :)
