Planning April’s Quilt Retreat

With only a few weeks away, and limited space available, I am starting to plan the Quilt Retreat weekend. I will be working with the catering team at the Quailty Inn on meal plans, and with my staff on coming up with some fun ideas for games.

These last few weeks have been busy for the store. With the large amount of new fabrics that came in, I have finally got everything put away and entered on the website. Now I can step back enjoy all the beautiful fabrics, but not for too long… more items are to come in a couple weeks.

Tabby Road – Tula Pink

My inventory of Tula Pink has been growing so quickly, that I am happy to announce another line available for purchase. Tabby Road, has all the colors you love from Tula Pink plus some adorable looking animals in the prints. I have a portion of the collection up on the website, and the rest should be up shortly.

Last week was QuiltCon, which is a Big festival that Celebrates the modren expression of Quilting. The best line that I saw on Instagram describing Tula Pink Fabric was. “If you look at a piece of Fabric and it makes you Smile it is Tula Pink”. This line could not be any more true. Just loved it.

I told you, big things are happening… so stay tuned.

More Fabric in the Mail!

Great News, we have not one, not two, but THREE new Collections from Art Gallery that are in transit to the store.

The collections that are coming in are: Ethereal Fusion, Lower the Volume and Letters. Each one has their own style and color pallet.

Don’t worry these three collections will also be hitting the website, as soon as they come in.

Now all I have left to do, is find space for these bolts in my wall of fabrics….

It’s getting nicer out-side!

I know this nice weather might not last long, but it feels so nice to see the sun brightly shining and the snow melting away.

With nicer weather along the way it means one thing… road trips with my store. I am busy cutting fabrics, and getting kits ready for all the amazing Quilt Shows I will be attending this year. First on the list is Winnipeg, February 18th (see other posts of mine for more details). I have bins, after bins, of fabric all ready and I am so excited to see you all there. Make sure you let me know what you think of my website, I am always looking for new ideas.

– This quilt is featuring Blithe Fabrics designed by Katarina Roccella from Art Gallery Fabrics, Pattern is by Jay Bird Quilts-

Tula Pink is on my Mind

Ever since I got this quilt up on the wall, and can’t help myself, I always stop and get lost in the beautiful design and colors!

This kit box from Tula Pink was so much fun, and the outcome was worth the wait. This kit gives you so much extra fabric, that if you wanted to get a bit creative you could. If not you will have enough for a scrap blanket afterwards.


February is here, I say it is time to start thinking of warmer weather and bright colours.


This kit is available under Promotions.

Half way Through January

It is only in Manitoba where you will find -40C one week and then -5C the next week. Either way, I like to stay cozy under a nice flannel blanket during the winter months. Currently in the store we have a wide selection of Dear Stella Flannels to pick from. These flannels are high quality, very colorful, and guarantied to brighten-up someone’s day.

The store has been busy, with making room for new fabrics, and kits, as well as  getting ideas for classes and a retreat. We have also been busy getting items ready for our Market in the City come February (more details in the weeks to come).
