The BIG Wichita quilt
show, that only happens every other year, is happening today through
Saturday! If you enjoy looking at quilts, this is the place for
you. So much local talent!
Yesterday morning I
helped process in entries, and there are a lot of beautiful
quilts! Click here for details:
While we won't be
vending at the show (just too darn much to move!), you are invited to stop in one or both of my
stores. Thursdays we're open until 6:30 downtown, and 6 pm at
the mall store, on the interstate. We have beautiful quilts
showing all the time, and no entry fee! :)
Plan on seeing us July
12th, when we'll be sharing Creative Holiday Decorating & Gift
mini-shop-hop" of sorts with a Winter Holiday Theme and an
opportunity to start on an exclusive MYSTERY QUILT
Hen Feather's Quilt
Material Girls Quilt
Picket Fence Quilt
Each shop will be doing
different demonstrations from 9:30 to 3:30. If you choose to
purchase a mystery package at each shop, you'll receive a FREE pattern
at the end as a "thank you". And you can enter to win
gift certificates to all stores! Hope to see you the 2nd
Saturday in July!

love a good map, and there is a very cool Row By Row Google Map that
shows all the shops in all the regions. You may have to be
registered in Google, but then you can select the area of the map you
are interested in, zoom in until you get to the level of detail you
are interested in and go from there! Very sweet!
As I have 2 shops, I
have two rows. The theme of the Row by Row is SEW A
SEASON. We've chosen two different seasons.
At Charlotte's Sew
Natural, downtown, Summer or Fall? Let's just call it: SEW

parallelograms easy! Not to mention TRAPEZOIDS!
