Let the holiday festivities begin!
It's time to gather and give thanks and gear up for all the fun weeks ahead. We hope you enjoy time together with loved ones and that you sneak in a few glorious hours of sewing as well. Corn Wagon will close early Wednesday, November 24th so we'll have plenty of time to put the turkey in the oven (and sew). We'll be closed Thursday the 25th for Thanksgiving (and stitching between dinner, pie and leftover midnight snacks) and we will remain closed through Friday the 26th for Black Friday (and more sewing... and probably more pie). We will open our doors again Saturday, November 27th for Small Business Saturday! We look forward to the day after Black Friday as a day to support local small businesses with Holiday shopping and we have an exciting class opportunity for you here at the School House for Small Business Saturday! Heather Dunn will be teaching a 3-hour EasyPiecing Grid Workshop where you can learn to make a Christmas Table Runner (below) and/or a Tree Wall Quilt (above). You choose! Register now ($30) for Saturday, November 27th, 9:00 a.m. - Noon. Optional kits are available in-store to those registered for class for $29.99. You'll get the usual 15% off class supplies and the benefit of 25% off any and all Easy Piecing Grid Panels so it's a great day to learn the grid method and stock up to prepare for future projects! Seats are limited and will fill quickly so don't delay!
You'll also find some great deals at the Quilt Shop and Mercantile for Small Business Saturday! All Christmas yardage will be 20% off! All regular price merchandise at the Quilter's Mercantile will be 20% off (sale excludes locally made artisan goods)! We're also bringing back our free yard of fabric offer with any gift card purchased in-store, valued $50 or more! Whether you include the free yard coupon in your gift card giving or keep it for yourself, we'll never tell! Wink wink. One coupon per customer. Free Yard of Fabric offer begins on Small Business Saturday and runs through December 24, 2021. We have lots of non-quilters stop in looking for the perfect gift for the quilter in their life and a gift card is the best way to let that seasoned sewist pick out exactly what they need for their next project! They're always so excited to discover there's a free yard of fabric involved so don't be afraid to send them a hint!

Will you be putting up the tree over Thanksgiving weekend? Do you already have yours shining in the window or do you trim the tree on Christmas Eve? Are you team fresh or faux? Whatever your tradition, 'Tis the Season to enjoy those evergreen beauties. 'Tis the Season
is also the name of this darling 56.5" x 57.5" quilt by The Pattern Basket! Lynette Christensen pulled a mix of favorite Christmas fabrics to piece her own frosted pine forest. Ever in the giving spirit, Lynette put together kits for you complete with pattern, polka dot background and red plaid binding for $116.99. Dorene Johnson quilted it with the perfect edge-to-edge poinsettia design.
Speaking of trimming the tree... are you over due for a new tree skirt? Look no further than the Holly Jolly Tree Skirt
by Andy Knowlton of A Bright Corner! We are lucky to have her own skirt here on display that she made using a Jelly Roll of Christmas Morning
fabrics by Lella Boutique! This pattern is quick and easy with the option to use 2.5" precut strips or larger strips for a skirt you can have ready right away and enjoy for years to come. Order a pattern now from our website
or pop in and see how cute Andy's Holly Jolly Tree Skirt
is in person and pick your favorite Jelly Roll so you can get right to work!
Back by popular demand! Buttermilk Basin has designed a vintage twill panel as part of her Christmas at Buttermilk Acres
collection with so many gift possibilities! Aprons, tea towels, or how about simple pillows like the set Jen Tanner threw together by adding an easy-as-pie envelope backing made from pre-hemmed toweling. One $7.99 panel includes both designs shown here! Talk about ideal for gifting! It's another item featured on our website
or as always, we'd love to see you in-store!
In last week's newsletter, I shared some traditional style blocks in black and white that I've been working on for our 2nd Wednesday Block of the Month Club. Well, let me introduce you to the red version of this stunning quilt finished by Chris Chamberlain! It's one of those quilts you really need to see in person to fully appreciate. The Gems and Jewels
quilt by American Jane is available in-store as a kit in either red as shown or blue (equally as beautiful -- trust me). We have enjoyed the challenge of learning how to piece the 30 classic block patterns and can't wait to see all three color ways finished by the end of the year (Marsha, we can do this, right?). Only 43 days till the New Year but who's counting?
One more EasyPiecing Grid opportunity before 2021 comes to a close! Monday, December 13th, 6:00 - 9:00 p.m., Heather Dunn will be back to show you how easy and fun it is to layout and piece this large-scale snowflake. Like a favorite winter sweater, when it is time to snuggle up and get cozy, this Snuggly Snowflake
lap quilt will be just right! It's also a great size for gifting! Choose Christmas fabrics for a holiday look or choose other fabrics for a look you can enjoy all winter long. Select a variety of fabrics for depth - the scrappier the better! You also get to choose from 3 different sizes : 58" x 58", 43" x 43", or a 29"x 29" wall quilt depending on which grid size is right for you.
