Hello Friends!

Did you get to the Quilting on the Red show last weekend? So much fun, and so many beautiful creations! We were thrilled so many people stopped by our booth, too - thank you to everyone!

We still have some Halloween pillowcase kits - it's not too late to sew up a dual purpose trick-or-treat bag! Here is one of our three designs:

We have some really special things new this week! Like our Liberty of London demitasse pincushions, which manage to be both adorable and elegant!

Charley Harper barkcloth Bears in Birches (not, as I saw elsewhere online, Bears in Britches!)

JEM of the week is the Sip & Snip panel, $7.99 this week (regualrly $8.99)

And we just received several of Stacey Iest Hsu's Cut, Sew, Create panels - if you've been following Stacey's lines for a while you know she excels at these panel projects! This line is for any age, at any skill level, but especially for the next generation of sewists. Sewing Classes for Kids will be scheduled soon!  Here are photos of the finished projects:
