Color Therapy

Every morning I open the door to my shop and I am automatically happy and full of smiles, no matter what the weather is like outside.

I am smiling for many reasons:
For all my loyal customers and friends I have gained through the years at the Quilt Shop
Inspiring my customers to try something new in their fabric selection
Finding that perfect machine for your sewing adventures
Seeing people’s reactions to the fabric and Quilts on display

But most of all I am smiling, because I am doing something that I love. I love knowing that everyday in the store is going to be filled with amazing people, bright colors, and inspiration.

I also wanted to let my readers in on a secret… Something new is coming to the store next Month. (but that’s all you are getting for now).

Enjoy the last two days of January, and looking forward to February and all of its surprises.

Cork is the New Leather….

Now available in store only, CORK!

There are multiple different colors to pick from, including the traditional cork look. Cork is the perfect addition to any bag, giving the bag dimension and texture. This product is durable, and very easy to use.

Come on in and see for yourself,

Cork is the hottest thing right now for Bags and I would totally agree.

New Fabrics

New year, New Fabric.

Wow this month my delivery driver has been busy. I have gotten so many fabulous things in, that I have fallen behind. I know.. How could I? I am sorry, but here is the download.

Art Gallery Fabrics:

Received the latest new born collection called Nest. I need to mention that I got both the Quilting Cotton and Knits. Now you can add a cute pair of baby leggings, hat, or even a sleepier outfit to any receiving blanket/quilt you give as a gift. But hurry, the Knits are moving!

Secondly, just in are the Color Master Box Sets! These are only going to be available in store (sorry online shoppers). The box sets are in both Fat Quarter and Half Yard Cuts, with so many different color collections to pick from you might just need to get two or three… they are that beautiful.

Dear Stella Fabric:

FOR FOX SAKE! (love that title) came in and is available online. This collection is the perfect mix of earth tons and fun prints, beautiful for any quilt.

Libs Elliott – WILDSIDE!

The collection title says it all “WILDSIDE”! Bright bold colors, and wild prints this is perfect for your rebel side. Lips and Skulls will bring a punch to your next make-up bag project, or even a quilt. Right now this collection is only available in store, you will not want to miss out on this collection, it is moving FAST. (Who knew Quilters where such Rebels… hehe…)

That’s the update, make sure you check out the Quilt Retreat information posted under Classes, and come by the store and say Hi.


P.S. If you  are by the shop today come in and Wish Me a Happy Birthday! (my Daughter made me write this)

We’re making our list and Checking it twice…
Gonna find out who’s been Quilting a lot
Santa Clause has told us … TO DO A SALE !

That’s right!!

Saturday December 2nd we are doing our Holiday Event. We can’t say what Santa has told us to do for Saturday, but I am sure you will not want to miss it. (Plus you should  do what Santa says, you can’t get on the Naughty list this close to Christmas).

No cost for this event … maybe a gift for the first few guest… maybe a sale… maybe some goodies… maybe some food and beverages… I think I have said too much already.


Come on down December 2nd at 10am for fun and surprises.
