Hello Friends!

As we take another dip into single digits before next weekend's predicted warming trend, this seems like a good time to celebrate the Great Restocking of the Wool Wall! We have new colors, new patterns, and it is all so pretty!

We also have kits for Lori Holt's new Good Morning Mugs runner - it comes in a super cute box, too, making it the perfect gift for a coffee or tea-loving friend! Or for yourself. We don't judge.

Beautiful Leather Look 100% Cotton Oxford Canvas by Lecien now available!  Leather look on one side and plain on the other makes this fabric truly reversible.  Perfect for home accessories, tote bags, pillows, and anyplace you want a leather look accent. 

New in the shop are It's Sew Emma foundation papers for 12" or 6" log cabins and 6" and 12" pineapple blocks. Foundation papers are a great way to ensure super accurate piecing!

Beginning Sewing
!  The next meeting is Saturday, March 21, from 1-4pm.
Machines provided.

The March Pincushion Party Class is Monday, March 9, from 6-9 pm. 
There have been requests to make "teacup" pincushions, so this month we will be learning that technique and making a pincushion in a little ramekin.  You'll be able to use what you learn to make pincushions to fit a teacup of any size, or any other fun vessel that you especially like.  You won't  need your sewing machine this month.  Just bring scissors, polyester thread, and a needle. All the materials to finish your pincushion will be provided.  AND... we will also be making decorative beaded pins, so you will leave with some fun pins to stick into the cute pinnies you've been making!!  Enjoy an evening of coffee, treats, and a fun time visiting with sewing friends!

Learn a fun technique for making quarter log cabin blocks and make a stack of blocks to use as you please! If you are on the waitlist, we'll be running this class Saturday, March 7th from 1pm-5pm. Call soon to register - spots are filling up fast!

Our first month of the Aurifil Color Builder's Thread Club Mystery Quilt block!  Amazing how different they look with different fabrics!

The 2nd month block for Aurifil Color Builder's Thread Club Mystery Quilt helped us to dip a toe into applique and thread work!  I have to admit, it was a lot more fun than I expected!
