Project of the Week: A High Calorie Treat

Hi Guys,
It's time for this week's project of the week! And what a sweet project it is. Pictured here is the Cupcake Pincushion by Portabellopixie, the High Calorie size. Included in the pattern is the High Calorie version, as well as the Low Calorie version (smaller in size) and a tutorial for creating Rolled Roses. A quick and easy project (and tasty!), you could whip a few up and display them on a decorative cake plate. Patterns are available in the store, come down and pick out your cupcakes!

It's Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas...

Well, Christmas is starting to sneak up on us, so we thought we'd better get our decorations up!

There are Christmas fabrics out this season to suit every style, from traditional to novelty to bright; we even have a line in the store for all you dog lovers!

We all know what it means when we start to see Christmas popping up in's time to get those Christmas projects finished! To help get that creativity flowing, we're starting a Project of the Week here on the blog. At the beginning of each week, we'll be posting new and fun projects that we're working on here at the store. This week's project is the Wine Gift Bag from Valori Wells' book, Sew Easy Lifestyle. The wine gift bag is quick and easy; perfect for a last-minute gift!

New Block of the Month

Hi friends,
We've been busy bees over here at the shop, doing some fall cleaning and prepping for the start of our new block of the month! The "Blossoms of Friendship" block of the month is starting this month, and runs for a year. We still have a few spots open, so if you're interested come on in or give us a call to sign up!
Lynn is putting this BOM together, and she's set up a blog for those who are working on the quilt. She'll be posting photos of each block as it comes out, as well as helpful hints and words of encouragement. She'll be writing her first post tonight or tomorrow, check it out at

In other news, we just received Verna Mosquera's new line of fabric, Savon Bouquet, which she used in her new pattern, Jardin de Roses. Both are on display, so come take a peek!

Leslie is working on getting our holiday display window set up; it should be up in the next week or two. We'd love to see what kind of fun winter crafts our friends are working on, feel free to bring them in for a show and tell!

See you soon!
