"Busy Hands ~ Make Happy Hearts"


These women know all about Happy Hearts! They are the "Sit & Stitch" group that meet each Wednesday at The Country Loft. They spend the year collecting quilt tops and blocks to make into those wonderful quilts that you buy at "Sew for the Cure" 
This will be another outstanding year! 
We are still taking your donated projects... And we would really like to fill up our "Sharing Show" in the backyard with all of your wonderful projects that you have made. They can be from a class... a book, or pattern that you have purchased here. Please bring them in to us no later than August 22. "We are so excited see what you have done." We thank you!

The "Outdoor Quilt Show" and "Sew for the Cure Sale" is August 24th, Saturday, 10 to 5

The new Fall 2013 Issue of "Primitive Quilts & Projects" has arrived. It has Fall written all over it! We are so pleased to see one of our favorite teachers in this issue. She's Tonee White, with a beautiful quilt called "Acorns & Reels".

We have another new kit!

It's called "Indian Summer" by The Cottage at Cardiff Farms.

Kit includes all of the fabric for the top, including binding... and of course Kathy's pattern.
We have made it up in the colors of Fall!




Wow! I'm in love with this new line by Judie Rothermel.

It's called "Romantic Olde Charleston" and it is just that...Romantic. The greens and pinks are so soft... and it has a nice stripe too. I know you are going to want some of it... it's already flying off of the shelves.

Before we close today... 
Again, we want to remind you to mark your calendars for August 24th, Saturday from 10 -5 for the "Outdoor Quilt Show and Sew for the Cure Sale"

Thanks for stopping by today...
