Hi all!

Happy Holidays!  

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 NEXT WEEK!

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 Christmas!

GIFT 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 

Another great GIFT IDEA, for a "gift that keeps on giving"

Members save 20% off all regularly priced merchandise, on the web and in the downtown store, plus 30% off the week of their birthday.

Details here:





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!

CHRISTMAS FABRIC is now ON SALE in the DOWNTOWN STORE and on the web here:

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:

 Alexander Henry Pin-Ups:

African Animals:

 Starting in January, our SECOND SATURDAY, will be called SATURDAY SOIREE, and features either red/white or blue/white reproduction fabrics.  We'll be announcing details soon!

 Charming sampler quilts, it will be hard to choose which colorway is best!  

FABRICS now in the store, so you can come see how beautiful these colors look for real!

We're looking ahead to more 2013 BLOCK-A-MONTHS. 

Just in! A YEAR TO CROW ABOUT from Red Rooster Fabrics.

The collection and both quilts below start with this cute PANEL:

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

and a BLOCK-A-MONTH option which may be available from us, 

which is a bit more complicated, and we could kit individually, or all at once.  

We're still debating this one, but we have all the FABRICS IN STOCK now.  Soooo, please let us know if you'd like the BOM!


 We'll be offering a new CIVIL WAR-era quilt, also starting January 2013. 

FREEDOM RINGS will be offered as a class or simply as BLOCK-A-MONTH kits without a class, or as an entire kit to be delivered all at once.


Meanwhile, we always stock a great selection of CIVIL WAR fabrics.  Click here:

WING AND A PRAYER DESIGNS has come out with another great QUILT PATTERN!  Available in 3 sizes, King, Queen, and shown below is the THROW size.  Notice the lack of pieced border.


CONTESSA is a beautiful combination of piecing & appliqué.  

The PATTERN & FABRIC is in stock now.

 The fabric is available by the yard and in fabric kits for 3 different size quilts. 

A monthly class will be available.  Please let us know if you are interested and what time/day works best for you.

Click here for more information:

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!

The 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  miles south of downtown Newton.  More than 100 bolts added this week!

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

BARGAINS on the WEB can be found here:

Don't forget, we'll be giving away a FREE PATTERN the entire month of December.  MODERN TWIST can be made smaller, or larger - your choice!  

 Simple 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 FREE PATTERNS.

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 words.

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 quilts were donated this year at our Bargain store for the SRS 2012 Quilts for Foster Children Drive.  Many quilts were also donated and delivered to The Linus Project, Victory In The Valley & Quilts of Valor.  Thank you to all who contributed in so many ways!

Merry Christmas!  Peace be with you and yours.  Shalom.

Hope to see or hear from you soon.
