Wool... Lots of gorgeous wool!!!

They are in a rainbow of beautiful colors and textures, with so many wonderful choices.




     Just arrived in the shop are Primitive Gathering's new Brushed Muslin's. 

     We have Layer Cakes and Charm Squares. Soon to arrive, we'll have the full line on bolts! 

     They are so soft and nice to sew with.


     These pretty little quilts are part of the "Prairie Women's Sewing Circle" by Pam Buda. 
     We still have some room in this great class, taught by Leigh Greer each month. 
The group will be starting with Journey 5.

     The first meeting will be on Saturday, February 7th from 10-12.



Call us crazy... but we had a terrific weekend with "Open House" and three days of Workshops taught by Pam Buda from Heartspun Quilts!!!

I think these faces say it all... Sewing, friendship and great food. 

  


We had many women from out of town and of course our local gals.






You know it's a good workshop when you can sew in your stocking feet!


Back at the shop we were busy handing out the New Class Calendar and sign ups for those new classes.

There was excitement over our new Block of the Months. We've got them ready to go!

"A Prairie Gathering"
"How Does Your Garden Grow?"
"A Patchwork Garden"



We want to thank everyone for coming and making our events a huge success!
