New Fabric Lines

A few new fabric lines arrived just in time for our move. Here’s a quick peek at what came in. There are many more that we couldn’t fit into the newsletter. Stop in today to see them all!
“Snow Happens” by Fresh Water Designs is a fun group of pre-printed embroidery snowmen. Coordinating patterns from Bird Brain Designs make this an easy project for a winter table runner, pillow or lap quilt.
“Farm Friends” is an adorable cloth book with pigs, sheep, chickens and more coordinating prints.
“Christmas Pure & Simple” by Nancy Halverson is a great book and the matching fabric line features a precious Nativity panel.
Heather took a trip to Madison this weekend and we picked up lots of ideas for new projects and are in the process of ordering supplies to offer more classes. We can’t wait for you too see the new shop!

Happy Quilting!
