Get ready for cooler weather
School is starting, leaves are changing and the nights are getting cooler.  So let the sewing begin! 
Its that time of year again when we can get out our sewing projects, touch and feel the fabrics and dream of a finished quilt.  So to help you get started, I will be having sales, new fabrics arriving and always the 50% off section.

Stop in to see the fall fabrics!
I have an entire row of 27 bolts of beautiful and fun fall fabrics.  That's not including the bolts of fabric from Real Tree that have fall foliage, white-tail deer, bear, etc. or the fall trees in bright orange splendor.  Stop in and I will show you.
What's New?
I have just received 8 bolts of new fabric, quilter's quality, that is only $7/yard!  I look for deals and pass them onto you.  I also stocked up on Creative Grid rulers for you, as well as patterns to make your fabric fly into a quilt.  My new favorite is the 30 degree triangle ruler with kits/patterns available that make a 54" X 70" throw that will go together quickly.   Come in to see the new tea towels patterns too.
If you purchase any of the new Christmas fabrics with cardinals on, you get a free table runner pattern that is exclusive to my shop.  Want to know what else is exclusive?  Check out this fun sewing table sign!  The kit includes the stand and pattern (exclusive).
One side is for when you're sewing,
the other is for when you need your
fabric fix!
This project includes all you need, including the fusible and stand.  All you need are your sewing machine threads.
