Hi, Everyone
    We are moving right along, selling more inventory every day. I do want to once again, set things straight in your minds—please help us put a stop to all the silly rumors about what is happening at the shop.
   First, on the quilt side we still have over 300 hundred bolts of fabric and it is $6 a yard. Fat quarters are $1.50, patterns and thread are marked down to special prices (see below) and everything else is 50% off. Samples are an additional 35% off the marked price.
   In the bead room all merchandise is 50% off. I have been cleaning out the bead storeroom and we have lots of bead trays and other display items for sale. Boy, this cleaning out the shop is a lot of work! All the fixtures are as marked.

Sulky Blendables, 12 wt and 30 wt cotton, variegated. This heavier, decorative thread is meant to be seen! Use it for top stitching, quilting and more. Use a Topstitch size 90/14 needle in your machine, loosen the top tension a bit and stitch away. $2 each
Mettler, 50wt & 40wt, cotton, solid color. 50 wt (purple top) is your  everyday sewing/piecing thread. 40 wt. (brown top) is a bit heavier—top stitching, quilting and more. Use a size 80/12 universal needle for general sewing. When using for free motion, you many prefer a size 90/12 topstitch, quilting or sharp. Small spools, 164 yds, $1 Large spools, 547 yds: $3
YLI Silk thread, #100 wt. Beautiful, lustrous silk is the #1 choice for applique. It is so fine that it literally disappears in the fabric. For hand or machine work. Use an embroidery needle. $2 each
YLI Machine Quilting thread, 40 wt/3 ply. Meant to be seen! Use when you want to see your quilting stitches, not just leave an impression. Use a Topstitch size 90/14 needle and loosen the top tension. $3 each
YLI Hand Quilting, 500 yds. This glazed thread makes threading needles easier and keeps the thread from tangling. $2 each

Patterns have been bundled up and are being sold as grab bags. Some are 5 patterns for $3 and some are 7 patterns for $3. Yup—you are reading that correctly. It’s time to make them go away!

    For years we have been THE spot to take wonderful classes, share information and resources in the quilting and beading world. Many of you are asking how to reach my staff for classes, quilting, repairs and more once our doors are closed. So, here is the scoop on those who have services to offer. Click here to download it as a file you can print and save. We’ve also posted it on our website and we'll

   This week we have regular hours: Monday through Saturday 10-4. NEXT WEEK we will go down to three days a week: Thursday through Saturday 10-3. PLEASE CALL THE SHOP AND CHECK BEFORE YOU COME. We don’t want anyone disappointed or upset if you come and we are closed.


    Happy creating--
