Don't miss the S.A.B.L.E. Sale next Saturday 09/28/19!
Let's sell some S.A.B.L.E.s! My best quilty cousin gave me a sign that reads, "A lady never discusses the size of her fabric stash." So, in an effort to remain lady-like, I will simply say my stash is... sizable. I can't say it's modest (what would that even look like?). Indeed, the size of my stash is a subject I'm reluctant to evaluate. I have decided that there are a few things that I am willing to part with simply because I'm unsure I will ever be able to finish ALL the projects in this lifetime and I would LOVE to see them happily sewn by another quilter instead of remaining on my shelf. That's why you'll find me and nearly 30 other quilters in the Corn Wagon parking lot next Saturday, with all sorts of quilty goodness to share! That's right! We're setting up shop - - a sort of collaborative quilters yard sale, if you will, on September 28th from 8am till 5pm. We're calling it our S.A.B.L.E. Sale because we admit we have a Stash Accumulated Beyond Life Expectancy and we need your help! We have rented out parking spaces for fellow S.A.B.L.E. owners to sell fabric, kits, patterns, notions and other sewing items from their stash. Sellers will set their own prices and handle transactions for their goods so come prepared to buy with cash or Venmo. You may find that fabric that was discontinued long ago but wish you had bought more of! Or a kit from a favorite collection you regret not having picked up! Maybe you'll catch a great bargain on some scraps to use in a charity project you've had in mind! Whatever treasures you seek at the S.A.B.L.E. Sale, we can guarantee a fun day with fellow fabric hoarders... I mean collectors... I prefer to think of my accumulations as "material assets"... Now, doesn't that sound better? We've opened 6 more parking spaces!
Word has it, there are more S.A.B.L.E. owners out there who would like to set up shop at the S.A.B.L.E. Sale! We've opened six more parking stalls! Reserve one now online for $25 and come sell some S.A.B.L.E.s! You can even share your space with friends! Bring your own tables or simply pop your trunk to sell any sewing related goods you are ready to part with. You set your own prices and handle transactions for your items (we suggest accepting cash or Venmo). Set up begins at 7am. Sale runs 8am-5pm Saturday, September 28th in the parking lot behind Corn Wagon Quilt Co.
We all want one! Shannon White came to work one day wearing tiny flying geese around her neck! It was the cutest lanyard you've ever seen. Wherever did she get it? Her good friend Kayde Dexter made it for her. Well, we all have to have one. So, Kayde has graciously agreed to teach a class! They may look intimidating but Kayde knows all the tricks to making these tiny flying geese using The Tiny Geese PDF Pattern by Michael Ann Made from www.mybluprint.com and she's ready to teach you, Thurs, Oct 10th, 6-9pm here at the Corn Wagon Too School House. Register now online or at the shop. Wouldn't these make the cutest gifts for your best quilty friends this Christmas? Perfect for beginning paper piecers or someone who loves to have a statement piece, you can create your own Tiny Flying Geese Lanyard or multiple key fobs in Kayde's fun class!
Speaking of Flying Geese, Kylie Swenson recently finished this darling modern baby quilt using one of our favorite new children's fabric collections, May the Forest Be With You by Dear Stella Designs. Happy little hedgehogs and other forest friends play on shades of blue, rust, green and gold. We have kits! This Flying Geese Wall Hanging pattern is free from www.simplicity.com Emily Herrick added an energetic, angular edge-to-edge quilting design to this cute quilt for kids. And look how fun the Cuddle backing is! Perfect!
