What's New and Happy Sunny Week in February!

Hey everyone!

Sick of winter yet? It makes me want to sew, and not do anything else... lol
The shop has been doing well! We were very busy for our super bowl sale and other non sales days have been great too. Thanks to all of our great customers.
I am so fortunate to have KyleAnn Williams helping me with emails, my blog and other marketing stuff... This blogspot just might get updated on a regular basis.

Wow - we are always getting in the greatest books - books you'll really want to add to your "personal library." For example, the "Wearable Arf" book you see in the right column has adorable outfits for your favorite dog - all the way up to a size 22" chest!

Coming soon from C & T publishing is Meeting Adelia by Kathleen Tracy . . . .Meet Adelia, a 19-year-old woman living in northern Illinois on the cusp of the Civil War. Her real-life diary entries record the details of daily life while war advances in the background. Her journal illustrates how central sewing and quilting were in a woman’s life during the nineteenth century. Includes period photos and 14 projects featuring nineteenth-century reproduction fabrics.

Sharon, Kathy and I all love Joanna Figueroa and her cute husband (he looks like he is 10). She has great color choices and her fabric always looks fresh.

Her newest book is coming out . . . Fig Tree Quilts Fresh Vintage Sewing

Bring fresh vintage style to your home with five great quilts and a basketful of unique projects ranging from adorable pin cushions and charming aprons to pillows and journal covers. All feature Fig Tree Quilts’ signature palette of warm, inviting tones.
See how easy it is to personalize each project with the creative use of embellishments such as beads, ribbons, and bows. For wedding showers, birthdays, or special sewing buddies, you'll have the perfect gift every time.

Call us at the shop or come by to reserve your copy today!

Have a great week!
