Hello, everyone.
     It was so nice to be at the shop during the Reindeer Dash greeting all of my wonderful, wonderful customers. The event was a great success--over 620 quilters came through our doors! All of the winners will be announced on the Reindeer Dash website and I’ll list my shop winners next week in this message. Thank you all so much for the love and support that you show us. I can’t tell you how much we appreciate it.
     So, for all my customers up in the East Bay, Letty and I are heading to the fabulous Pacific International Quilt Festival in Santa Clara on Tuesday. It will be my last PIQF as a vendor. I can’t believe I’ve done it for over 30 years. Maybe next year I’ll just go as a participant. Please stop by our booth and say hello.
    The shop is full of fun and exciting new things. We shared two wonderful Southwest collections with you last week—this week we put the panels & kits made from them up on the website and the samples are at the shop. You can see them in What’s New below. These fabric lines were supposed to be delivered in May/June in time for the So Cal Quilters Run because we chose the cactus garden theme, but with things the way they are I never know when we’re going to get stuff. Kaye made the sample quilt with the wagon wheels and cowboy boots--I am so in love with it that I’m going to keep it for the home that Patric and I will be building. I’m going to put it outside in my hippy shack patio studio. I’ve got actual wagon wheels to go with the quilt. (lol) I think it will be just perfect.

     Remember, come into the shop to buy your Mystery Quilt backing/batting and we’ll give you 15% off! Please send pictures of your finished quilts to We can’t wait to see your quilts and share them on the website. If you didn’t join us for this mystery, the pattern will be available in a couple weeks on our website.
     Beaders, remember that you have until October 31st to pick up your finishing charm or participation gifts from the Bead Hop. If you can’t make it into the shop, please give us a call and we’ll make arrangements to ship them.
     Rose Mary finished some darling adult PJ's to go with our new Slumber Party PJ's pattern--take a look at What's New below to see them plus more new items.
     Happy quilting and beading!

 Theresa and Rose Mary are now teaching limited classes in person at the shop. Here's how it works: to schedule with Rose Mary, give the shop a call. Theresa's classes are from 10 to 1 most Tuesdays and Thursdays. Class dates are listed on the website. The first 3 students to register on a given day determine what will be taught. There are links to Theresa's catalogs of 1 and 2 session classes below and on the website class pages. Theresa will contact you by phone to confirm your choice, talk about supplies, answer questions and schedule other sessions, if needed.
