Hi all!

Happy Spring! New things are popping up and out all over!

In the stores, NEWEST ADDITIONS - See them on the screen, then come in to touch them, we don't mind!  LOL

Sorry I missed last week's e-letter!  The pace around here leaves little room for "catch-up".  :)

So, this week I find I have sooooo much I want to tell you about.  Hope this message gives you a bit of inspiration - for sewing, travelling, learning! :)

First, I want to make sure that everyone puts the following events on their calendars.  Time to plan ahead!  I hate when I hear people saying they missed an event because they heard about it too late!


These can be solved with a little fabric and some creative input!  Even if you've never tried one before, check out these two contests.  Both have money prizes!

WHERE'S SUNNY?  A Viewer's Choice Mini-Quilt Contest sponsored by the Central Kansas Quilt Shop Hop participating shops.

Stop into Charlotte's Sew Natural downtown (or request by mail), and get a registration packet for $2.  This will include the rules and the custom printed fabric image that you'll need to use in your MINI-QUILT.  

The quilts are to finish a maximum of 18 x 22 inches.  These are due by August 30th.  This is a "viewers' choice" contest and prize money will be determined by voting by your friends and other quilt shop hoppers.  
Details here:


 THE CELEBRATING FARM TO FABRIC CHALLENGE features our newest "basics" line at Charlotte's Sew Natural -

American Made Brand is fabric made from cotton grown in the US, woven and dyed in the US.  There are 50 colors (in honor of our 50 states!), all 45 inches wide and color-fast!  I tested the red and didn't have one iota of color movement!

Lots of other NEW PRODUCT was added to our web site & into both stores recently.  See it all here:

 Sometimes callers think we're exaggerating when we say we have "lots of batiks".  Then they come in the store and see for themselves - we do not exaggerate!  LOL

Drawing on our great variety, here are some new BATIK KITS we just put together.

TOES IN THE SAND - using the book & HEX N MORE ruler from Jaybird Quilts to make unique triangular blocks.  The quilt finishes approx. 65 x 80.  Click here for an image of the whole quilt.


FLORAL SPLASH BATIK RUNNER in SPRING COLORS. These fabrics which play together nicely.  The runner from this kit finishes a bit shorter than the pattern is written.  It finishes approx. 19 x 40 inches long.


We just added "many" (translate "dozens of"!) NEW BATIKS too - from several sources, including Hoffman, Island Batiks, Robert Kaufman, Timeless Treasures and RJR.
