We have lots here at the shop to help you prepare your gifts and decorations as well as some fun sewing events to celebrate the season. Sew with us on Small Business Saturday! The Saturday after Thanksgiving, we are hosting a unique class at a very special price. November 30th, Janet Hansen will be at our School House teaching you how to piece either this table topper or runner -- you choose! Purchase the kit for only $39, the pattern and class are FREE! We're calling it our Take Two Christmas Class. One kit will make your choice of topper or runner and includes all fabric for the top and binding of one as shown below. Some of the fabrics are even precut! You'll receive your kit in class and be ready to sew the day away from 10am till 5pm with Janet there to guide you. It's a super Small Business Saturday steal and our way of thanking you for supporting small businesses during the holidays. Register on our website or at the shop before this sewing event is full!
Winter is for wool -- or is it vice versa? Either way, the timing is right for this 38" square wall hanging. Aptly named, Deliver Joy is a pattern by Buttermilk Basin we currently have at the shop. We have kits too filled with hand-dyed wool for applique and beautiful cottons for piecing the top and binding.
Using the Winterberry fabric collection from Riley Blake Designs, Janelle Gunderson pieced this quilt dedicated to the most wonderful time of the year. The pattern is Bluegrass by Lella Boutique and it finishes at 60" square. Grab a kit before they're gone!
Although the Christmas Figs block-of-the-month has ended, we have pattern books available! Wouldn't it be lovely out of nearly any fabric? Of course this classic red and green version still holds our hearts. You need to see the stunning custom quilting by Emily Herrick in person. She detailed every block individually and it is pure quilting perfection. Keep in mind all of our machine quilting is done free-hand. No computers on auto-pilot. These ladies are artists and their unique signature style will add to the hand-crafted tradition of your quilts.
It's time to get those quilt tops in for machine quilting for Christmas! Our quilter's are currently less than four weeks out but that will change quickly as the Christmas rush comes in so don't wait until the last minute. Remember to bring both your top and backing ready to hold your place in line. Our Motif-of-the-Month is edge-to-edge wavy lines or channel lock quilting like the cuddly quilt shown to the left. Request one of these motifs before the end of November and receive 20% off the cost of quilting service! HINT: Channel lock quilting on a simple Cuddle throw is PERFECT for gift giving and we can hook you up with both!
