Success Story!

Are you out there in the cyber world and you have wanted to learn to quilt, but are hesitant to start?.  Are you one of the people who are on our database but for whatever reason your not quilting?

Do you say to yourself, I can't do that.

Well, YES YOU CAN!

Want proof?  Here it is.  Meet Maryann.  Maryann is one of our knitters and she has never quilted before.  Under peer pressure she decided to take my mom's Bargello quilt class.  Here is her FIRST attempt at quilting!

Awesome work!!!!!!!!! Yes, we still need to get her borders on the quilt, but she made that in one night with no experience!  So if you are sitting there reading this and saying you can't do it then quit thinking that way!  Keep an eye on the schedule.  There will be more Bargello quilt classes in the next few months if you do not want to take the 4 week 101.

Awesome work Maryann!  We are all proud of you! 

Here are two other success stories from that class.   Great work Nancy and Heather!

Hi!

Here is a success story post!

First we have some older stuff.  I apologize I did not realize mom had been taking pictures and I needed to unload her camera......lol

Yes that says March. See I'm behind!


Yes, May.  I need to take that feature off that darn camera.  It's incriminating me!


Ok Next up are up to date success stories.  This is 2 of the 3 radiant star quilt tops from our latest class.  The second is mom's!  The third I will include as soon as I get a picture of it finished!

What's New @August 12th!

Hi All

Store is filled with alien beings working on their UFO's........lol

If you have been thinking about getting some Sew Line products.  We are restocked!



Here is the Civil War Reunion Fabrics you all voted on.  5 Bolts!


Next we have 12 bolts from P&B called Apple Cider!  Not sure how well you can see these white tonals.  The exciting news is that the fabrics were on sale!    Your Price $8.50/yard!  You know this price range is   rare these days!  Now your going to say Jenn, your an accountant, can't you count.  There are only 11 bolts pictured.  Well one of the neat things about being the owner is when your favorite fabrics come in (which means the Moda's get your butt in here before I steal them!) is that Mom, I and our employees grab things before you all.  Mom has grabbed one of the white bolts for herself........lol  That is why there is only 11 pictured.......lol






The last bolts are Color Spectrum - The three colored bolts are $7.50/yd and the white is $8.50/yd and is a child's fabric.


I would like to thank all of you who have given me compliements on my blog!  Thanks the words mean a lot and keeps me motivated to do it.........lol

Hurry in and get your favorite new fabric!

Remember, the one with the most stash wins!

What's New @August 7th! and Jenn's Success Story

I am soooooo slow!

I admit it!  They say that is the first step admitting you have a problem.  I have a problem!  There is not enough hours in the day and bigger than that I forget to put things on my to do list!

So this post is a few days in coming but here is what new.

This is the Apple cider bolt.  If you like this one come in and check out the price!  You won't see many coming in under $10 and this one is wayy lower than that!



Downtown Line, Harvest Line and some Suedes colors!  I love them all!


Next up is My success story!  You all know how quickly I give up my gifts.  The first I have not downloaded the pic from my smart phone.  Maybe next time.  But stop in and see my placemats that are a birthday gift I made for a friend out of the Magnolia Line!

Now for the success story that I actually took a picture of!  I took Knitting 101 in July and I have caught the knitting bug!  God help me!  Just what I need another craft to do..........lol

Check out my two knitted scarves.  Both are Christmas gifts so they won't be on in display for long! Stop in and pick out the same yarn and make your own gifts!  Scarf #3 will probably be started tonight.  I forget how many I'm making in different color combos.  Then comes some washclothes!  Ugh!  Are you working on your Christmas gifts yet?  Tell me what your doing!  Inspire others and me to get our butts in gear.  Your not working on them yet.  Do you know Christmas is like 5 months away!



Ok off to finish working on the upcoming newletter.  It will be out next weekend!
