Our online store has new items and many of your favorite patterns, notions, kits and more! We're adding things every week so check back often
Here's a link to our on-line shop.

Good morning everyone!
    Well, I think our weather is finally trying to change. We went from hot to chilly, BAM, just like that! Let’s hope the cool weather sticks around!
    I want to personally thank all the groups that have been coming out from Orange County, the San Diego area and wherever else you all are coming from. I am very thankful for your support during this time. With things so uncertain we’re not sure that our snowbirds from the North will be joining us this year and with no quilt shows in the near future things are just…different. So again, thank you so much for coming to see us. We appreciate it very much.
     Halloween will be here in a few days so I've put all of our Halloween fabric--by the yard (1-yard minimum,) pre-cut, panels, bundles--and kits on sale. Grab them before they are gone, now thru October 31st, at 25% off! Click here to see sale items in our web shop. There's lots more in our Palm Desert store.
     The shop is getting ready for the holiday season. Our 9th Annual Bra and Panty Drive starts November 1st (details below in What's Happening) and I’m get getting ready for the gift giving season. This Thursday at 9:30 during our Live Facebook Event, Mary is going to introduce us to the Free Fuse product that is taking the quilting world by storm. Everyone who tries this product loves it! Please tune in and join us—here’s a link to our Facebook page. In the weeks to come I’ll be showing you some wonderful gift giving ideas for secret pals, creative friends--and yourself, of course. I seem to buy myself a gift when I’m buying someone else a gift. I think it’s only fair. That way I get what I want.
Our flash sale last Thursday was successful-- both of the fabric bundles and one of our pendants sold that day. The beautiful pink druzy/crystal quartz/pearl other pendant is on the website at 30% off. Click here to see it. So tune in this Thursday to see which pendants will go on special at 50% off and which 5-yard bundles we’ll offer for $25.
       Remember, we practice social distancing and other state/local guidelines to keep each other safe in the shop. Sanitize your hands at one of the stations we've set up as you enter the store, wear a face mask and stay six feet away from others. Thank you!
   Read on to see What's Happening and What's New-- Happy quilting and beading, everyone.
