New Holiday Items

We have made a change to the Holiday Workshop schedules in order to accommodate everyone who is interested. You will now have the choice of coming on any of the listed days & can pick the project you are interested in. We have also added a few open days that you can also come and work on your own projects. For the Holiday and workshops and the scheduled Work on your own project days, we will provide treats and drinks.

Here are projects that you can come in and pick up and still get done in time for Christmas, or they would make great friendship gifts.

Finally Feels like Fall

Now that the weather is finally cooling down, we can start to think about fall and Christmas. I made this tumbler quilt while hanging out at the store Saturday. Using our tumbler ruler template, it was fast to cut out and even quicker to sew together. We cut some kits so you could make one too.

 

 
 

Christmas fabric arrived in May and June, but we still have some kits that can easily get done before December.

 

How about a small fabric and wool project? We have some left over kits from our wool club and Live Simply Block of the Month program. Each are sold separately and while supplies last. There are more months than what's pictured, so come down and take a look.

 

Mill Works block of the month starts in October. This program is features fabrics from Marcus Brothers. We have some blocks up on the wall. It's coming together beautifully. Call or come in to sign up.

 

We are planning some quick and easy classes featuring projects you can make before Christmas. Stay tuned for more information in our posts.

See you at the shop!
