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 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 STILL have 30% off about a 1/4 of the inventory and always the 50% off section.
The 30% off a quarter of the inventory is because my shop will be closing for the winter, and will reopen in May.  So from November 1 through April my shop will be closed (for the winter only).  My husband needs to see some specialists so we will be spending the winter in Georgia.  Initially we were going to go to Denver area, but have been redirected!  Life is full of changes.

Stop in to see the fall fabrics!
I have an entire row 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?
There is something totally new - a pre-cut batik kit!  All the cutting has been done for you and is pre-packaged, labeled and ready to go.  All you need is black thread and a sewing machine.  The quilt is of batiks, is called "Crystal Prism" and is 90 X 90 finished.  Just add a black border to make it larger.  Its for Advanced Beginners.  Here is the picture:
I also have a small, pre-cut package of a cute Scarecrow.  I'm working on the sample.

Haven't decided what to do for Christmas?  I have 6 new bolts of fabric called, "Blue Holiday" from Paintbrush Studio with mostly blue, and white with green accents.  They all have some silver metallic in the fabrics to make them sparkle.  There is a border fabric of trees too.  Here is a picture:

Some new patterns are coming:  pick out one yard each of 5 fabrics and pick a pattern.  Coordinate fabrics for a room, a wedding present, a house, anything, then grab whatever pattern you like to make an awesome quilt.  Easy to pick and choose.

Have you recovered those outdoor cushions yet?  Come see the canvas duck cloth (water repellent) canvas that I have in stock.  Before you put away those summer cushions, recover them for next year, or sew new cushions for those uncomfortable chairs.

Coming soon:

The Scarecrow Run Shop Hop will be coming in October.  When the shop hop ends, my shop will be closed for the winter.  So stay tuned for the dates and sales, etc.


With fall comes my shop's anniversary.  This year it will be 6 years!  Thank you all so much for helping my shop stay in business.  I hope to be able to continue for at least another 6 years.
