Hi all!

Happy October!  

This is it, THE weekend, as they say.  I imagine today our customers are a lot like these darling OWLS, sitting at home, wide-eyed, filled with love, waiting to descend on our shops!  LOL

See these OWLS and 72 more pages of BRAND NEW FABRICS now listed on our web site!

The theme is SERENDIPITY - and Charlotte's throwing a FIESTA PARTY FOR QUILT SHOP HOP!  October 5th, 6th, & 7th!

 GRAND PRIZE - 11 $50 gift certificates!

2nd PRIZE - 11 $25 gift certificates!

Additionally - dozens of gift baskets!

SILVER CHARMS included with each shop's fabric BLOCK KIT.

11 UNIQUE QUILTS to inspire your own!

List of the 11 shops & other details on the HOP including PICTURES of QUILTS, can be found here:

 For a very limited time, we are now taking pre-orders on SHOP HOP FABRIC.

You may pick up, or we will mail your fabric after Oct. 5, 2012. 

I have finished my EXCLUSIVE QUILT and it is now hanging in the store!  You can pick up a postcard, featuring a picture of the quilt, when you come to the shop during the Shop Hop.

 It is 94-inches square. Original pattern by Deb Madir.  Cool quilting by Kay Clark!

 Meanwhile, the class, VINTAGE ROUGE starts TONIGHT, 6:30 p.m.

It will meet on the FIRST THURSDAY of each month at 6:30 pm, starting OCT. 4, through March, 2013.  This is a great quilt for anyone who has wanted to do some appliqué, some English paper piecing, and learn some new tricks for piecing.  

Complete kits, and monthly kits available now.  
The VINTAGE ROUGE pattern is also available separately.


There is still room in either the daytime, afternoon or evening sessions of MARTI'S SAMPLER - U-TAUPE-IA.  You can choose your own fabrics for this pieced sampler, or purchase our kit in JAPANESE TAUPE prints, just as shown. (Sorry, the pattern alone is not available at this time.)

 Always one of our most popular classes, the PERFECT PATCHWORK TEMPLATE SAMPLER quilt class has two meeting times to choose from.


3rd Thursdays at 10 a.m., 1 p.m. OR 6:30 p.m.  Started September 20, but there is still time to join.  $48 plus materials.

12 monthly meetings thru Aug. 2013.  Lecture/Demo.  12 Sampler blocks using Marti's Perfect Patchwork Template Sets A & C, to make a Queen-size quilt.  

KITS available in the TAUPE fabrics as shown, or let us help you select your own color-way.  

It is always fun to see what fabrics others are using when you come to class.  Taught by Mary.


Another interesting SAMPLER QUILT is shown here in SOLID COLORS.  

 AMISH WITH A TWIST follows the AMISH tradition of simplicity, but creativity bursts from this quilt!

This 6-month class has had one meeting, but you can still join.  

Meetings will be on the 4th Saturday at 1:30pm OR 4th Thursdays at 6:30pm. This class runs through March 2013.

This lecture/demo classes taught by Ruth will feature sampler blocks with appliqué. You will make a queen size quilt.  Complete PATTERN SET & fabric KIT is available for this quilt as shown.

If you don't live close enough to attend our classes, there may be PATTERNS & FABRIC KITS AVAILABLE.  

All of our classes are perfect for confident beginners and those who have progressed beyond this early stage, unless stated otherwise.

 As the temperatures start dropping, I feel more like preparing for the Holiday Season.  

We have an excellent selection of CHRISTMAS, WINTER & HOLIDAY fabrics right now!  

SANTA'S WHIMSY, shown here, is so clever!  See the entire collection by clicking here, or stop in the downtown store soon!

 100s of NEW FABRICS ADDED this week at both stores!

Come check out the newest BARGAINS at our Mall store just 4-1/2 miles south of downtown Newton.

We're only about 25 minutes north of downtown Wichita on I-135.

Mention the highway billboard and receive a FREE quilt block pattern at The Chisholm Trail Mall store!

BARGAINS shown here on the web:

This is one group of fabric I can hardly wait to start working with.  It is such a classic, yet modern, nostalgic, yet fresh group of prints in black, grey & yellow.  Click here to check out Moda's new LITTLE BLACK DRESS.

I hope that you can take advantage of our fun 3-day SERENDIPITY, FIESTA, SHOP HOP event open extended hours.
