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.

Hello, everyone!
      So much is happening at the store. With fabrics coming in daily and beads being restocked the store is looking fabulous. Not to mention the way we’ve been cleaning out that store room--it is simply amazing. We put out a rack of sample purses for sale--we no longer have the fabrics and we’ve made new samples, so it’s time to let them go. And for those of you who don’t live here I will be having Mary put some of them up on the website--we might even put some sample quilts up there for you, too. But that’s for another day—where does the time go?
     Mary has figured out how to offer our Mystery Quilt through the website. We are working out the details and decided to make 4 different kits available so we moved the date back a week—we’ll start on February 26. You will be able to download the steps right from your computer and will have access to a private YouTube demonstration video. You must purchase the Mystery Quilt in order to participate in this fun filled event.
     This Thursday morning at 9:30 during our live Facebook Event, Rosemary will be showing her fabulous Masquerade Ballgown Quilt pattern that she designed for one of the Quilt Runs a few years ago. She’ll give you tips on all the different stitches she used to applique the images.
      The following Thursday I will be showing you lots and lots of quilts from six different books that only need 3 one-yard pieces. We’ve put together bundles of 3 coordinating prints that would be smashing in any one of the patterns from the books. They are priced to sell--just $30 for 3 yards. You can see a selection of them below in What’s New and we will share them with you live a week from Thursday.
     Our pendants are still 30% off through the weekend. Many of you have called the store so that you can view them—there are just too many to put up on the website. I am more than happy to get to the store early so that we’re not disturbed during the day when you’re making your selections. Just call and make an appointment!
     We’ve had to be creative to keep the store going and we do appreciate all the support that you continue to show us during these times. Once again I can’t thank you all enough.
     Happy quilting and beading, everyone--Hope to see you soon. 


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!
