Posted by PicasaMake these delightful potholders in great new patterns and colors. We used fabrics from Authentic and Astor Manor, both from Moda. The patterns are from Cotton Way. Everyone can use a new potholder. . .(not those old things we all have in the drawer!) and what a great gift idea.

Take a class!

Posted by PicasaWe are offering a class for making potholders on Monday, November 30, at 6:00 p.m. These are addicitive and are one of those "old that is new again" patterns. Come to the class and visit while you stitch. We always seem to find some chocolate thrown in there somewhere which just adds to the pleasure.
In the meantime we wish you all a very happy Thanksgiving !

Great New Bags and Fabric

We LOVE this new bag pattern from Thankfully Sew. It is easy to make, versatile and the name implies it all. . . "IT'S ALL ABOUT ME". What a great way to show someone it is all about them!

And how about a darling little doll carrier that will make someone smile big. Great for a Christmas gift or birthday. Ours is made using the newest Me and My Sister line from Moda.

Another great new bag, the handles are made from leather and ready to attach. The are very pretty, we love the flower petals on the ends.

These new bolts are from Riley Blake , they are toooooooo cute. Perfect for a little cowgirl, or a big one, these will be a hit for clothes, bags and quilts.

Wanna talk turkey? Seems early doesn't it . . . but start stitching now and be ready for the month of Thanksgiving. We love this season of the year, a time to count blessings and remember all the good things of life. The dimensional turkey makes one smile and he is very easy to "stuff". The wall hanging sets the mood for a season of celebrating. We love these smaller quilts and projects that add to the festivities and make a home feel so cozy. We have patterns and kits. Hope to see you soon!

Ready for Halloween!

All dressed and ready for Halloween! Is this just toooo cute? Diana made an outfit for her American Girl doll, check out the trick-or-treat bag in her hand. The pattern comes from Little Sassy Skirts. . . make one for a special little girl in your life, and for her doll! The black scarf adds a nice finishing touch. Diana is a wonder at doll clothes and anything Dolly. We love it when she shares her talents with us.

Take a Class

Posted by PicasaWe are excited to be offering a class using Eleanor Burn's new pattern, Day & Night. Join us October 24, at 9:00 a.m. for a fun day and learn this very "do-able" technique. It is strip piecing if you can believe that! Eleanor is the queen of simplicity, making it simple to understand and simple to stitch. Lisa, one of our lovely Kemmerer ladies, will teach the class. She also has a little surprise in store for the last hour of the day, so bring a fat quarter in a color you like. Please call ahead and register as space is limited. We usually serve lunch and have a grand time.
I guess we can officially say that fall is here.............everyone is scrambling to get out the warm clothes as it turned cold so quickly. . . like we didn't know it was coming! But we can always hope for a nice long Indian Summer. There are many things to love about this time of year; apples, gorgeous leaves, pumpkins, football, and cozy quilts to warm our hearts and our toes. Now that doesn't sound like anything to complain about!
Hope to see you soon, in the meantime have a great weekend.

We missed you!

If you were in attendance at our Fabric Fashion Show this evening. . . we thank you! If you missed out on the fun maybe you can join us next time. It was very entertaining to watch our professsional models (?) who did a great job of showing new bags, aprons, quilts, and lots of the goodies from The Bokay. They jetted into Carter International Airport. . . ahem. . . and gave us quite a show! We are sad because during all the excitement we FORGOT to take pictures. We promise to do better next time. . . that is, IF we remember!! Again, thanks to all our friends in attendance, you are the best. If you weren't there, visit the store and ask about the new samples and those things shown "on the runway". See you soon!
Learn to make a simple, quick and cuddly baby quilt using a "sew and flip" technique. Sew the pieces together using this method and you have the quilting done also! Class Sat. Sept 26, 9:00 a.m.
