Hi all!

Do you feel like you are zooming downhill, out of control?!  

Do you feel like TAKING SHELTER?


Give yourself some relief and plan to
We have just a couple of spots remaining.

January 14, 15, 16, 2011.  Click here for details!


Always a joy to look at, you can see these BUNNIES and other delightful artwork on HOLIDAY CARDS from BBD GREETING CARDS on-line and in the store.  The selection includes QUILT PATTERNS, BOOKMARK CARDS, QUILT CARDS, POSTCARDS & more.  I think the BOOKMARK CARDS make the perfect gift!


 VALENTINE'S DAY is just a bit over 2 months away.  We have a great selection of fabrics, patterns & projects working their way into the store.  Keep track of them in our newest LOVE & VALENTINES department.


Check out my newest THROW QUILT, made from our pre-cut kit, using Moda's GIDDY fabrics full of hearts.

My life may slow down naturally when I start drinking less coffee!

Have you heard about the terrible coffee bean borer loose in Hawaii?  They don't know how it got there, but it is eating up the Kona coffee beans, from the inside out, threatening supplies and of course, driving up the price of coffee world-wide!  Oh no!

 Other natural disasters, like flooding, are affecting supply, and the cost of cotton continues to rise dramatically.  We're definitely seeing higher prices from our suppliers for cotton fabric & batting.

I don't know what to say about the coffee, except don't waste any.

Check out our DEJA BREW and all the Studio e fabrics here:


What I can say about the cost of cotton, is "join my CHARLOTTE'S SHOPPER'S CLUB and save 20% on all regularly priced merchandise for a year, for one low membership".  We'll continue to make this offer.  Our club members are our best customers and we listen to them and pay attention to what they are buying when making our decisions on ordering.  So "Join the Club"!

Another way to reduce stress is relaxing with a HAND-WORK project.

Classes will also be available.  

Wildflower or Tonga Rhapsody - Queen-size sampler quilt with 2 settings available. Class meets 7 p.m. - 2nd Thursdays starting in January.

 As customers have seen the fabric swatches here in the store, they are getting very excited.  The background of the border fabric is a CHOCOLATE BROWN.  The flowers are rose, violet & gold.  


Other new classes and BLOCK-A-MONTH projects starting in January are listed here.  Click on each link for details on costs & meeting times.  You can also complete class enrollment on-line or request kits only which will be mailed monthly starting in January or February 2011.

We will use the Kaleidoscope Symphony book.  I've made all these blocks at least once and they are pretty easy, yet interesting. 

The class enrollment includes the cost of the book, and will be discounted if you previously purchased this book from us.  Monthly mailings will be $7.50 including postage.  Whole quilt kits can also be ordered in their entirety, if you want to work faster than just "a block a month".
