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.
       Happy to be back in the shop! Short and sweet this morning--the year is flying by and I'm flying around, too.
     Because we want to keep everyone safe, I've decided to change our Holiday Party & Sale, to just a sale--but what a sale!! 20% off everything (except books and Lindstrom tools) INCLUDING items already on sale. Yup! I need to move things out and have lots of wonderful kits and things that would normally have been sold when I vend at quilt shows during the year. So, help us get ready for 2021 by getting great deals on things you love.
holiday sale
       You still have time to bring in items for our Bra and Panty Drive. There are more people than ever in need of our help this year. The Coachella Valley Rescue Mission so appreciates everything we donate to them. As a thank you from me, each item you bring in gets you a ticket for our gift certificate drawing. You can see the details below in What's Happening.
     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, What's New and more. Happy quilting and beading, everyone.
