Hello, everyone. I Hope all is well with you and yours.
     Life’s a Beach! That’s the theme for this year’s Spring Fling. Each shop is handing out beach theme blocks patterns and a fat quarter of Riley Blake’s Kisses. If you’ve visited us on a run then you know I love to go all out with the theme. We hope to see all of you this Thursday through Saturday from 9 to 6. Come straight on back to our classroom where I’ll greet you and stamp your passport. Remember to bring non-perishable food items for a coupon to use during May. You must wear your mask, sanitize your hands as you come into the store and stay 6 feet apart from each other unless you’re with your own party. Thank you so much--together we can keep each other safe.
     Our flash sale this week is 40% off two fabulous kits--you can see both of them in What's Happening below. Quantities limited to stock on hand so grab them while you can.
    Oh! And at the last minute I had Mary come back to the shop before sending this newsletter out--27 new bolts of Kaffe Fassett fabrics came in! They were just too pretty and I couldn't wait to share them with you. Check them out in What's New below. Fabric off the bolt is only available by coming in or ordering over the phone, but the 2 Designer Rolls of pre-cut strips are also available through the website.
     The Mystery Quilt is going super well. Everyone (including me!) is so excited. If you missed your chance to register, we hope you will sign up for the next Mystery. Wonder what I’m gonna do
     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!

Many of you know how much Mary likes to make "Swiss Cheese" out of her fabrics creating quilted collages. Here's what she said while photographing the new Kaffes for this newsletter: "Oh! Wow! I guess I'm going shopping when I'm finished photographing." She especially loves the feather prints--says they make wonderful underwater critters and plants. Look here--she often uses the back side, too. Helps create depth and texture. Huh. Who knew? There is always a new way to look at fabric!

More treasures from the Festival collection came in. These fabrics will add that "wow' factor to any quilt.

Here are the 3 fabrics in the collection that we shared with you last week.
And, more colors of Kisses from Riley Blake arrived--this is the official print for the Spring Fling Quilt Run. Fabric houses are scrambling to fill orders as shipments are finally arriving at their warehouses!
