Hello Friends!

Do you have a friend who loves your quilts and projects, always sighs and wishes they could sew cool things too?

Well, here comes the perfect storm of opportunities to share with that person! We have fabulous entry-level Bernina machines and a beginning sewing class for adults, as well as one for kids. This is a great time to get a friend started in a hobby you both can share and love! (More details on both below.)

Turtle Bay from Maywood is a exciting new line of fabric featuring gorgeous colors and lovely prints!

We have new kits for the Art Gallery Bear Hug panel in your choice of a pink or blue version.

There are lots of fun projects for the Moda's Printworks Sampler panel as well as a great way to use the Amazing Grace panel!

There's still time to book your year-long virtual Italian vacation!
The only vacation that actually builds your thread library!
