Congrats to Jim K. for solving the puzzle,

In Between Stitches has been chosen to be in
American Patchwork and Quilting Spring Quilt Sampler Issue.

Quilt Sampler will hit newsstands on May 11, 2010! Last September American Patchwork and Quilting sent a photographer and a designer out to take photos of the store. The plan was they would photograph the store and we would be open for business. Oh did I mention we couldn't share with anyone about the magazine. It was such a difficult secret to keep, especially from those of you who were in the shop during photographing. Andy and Jan made the day very fun and they took pictures of almost every nook and cranny in the shop. To begin their Livermore experience we took them to Casa Orozco, a visit to Livermore wouldn't be complete otherwise. The next day the photography began, even our shop dog Harley was in on the action. He was brought to the store by special request of the editor of American Patchwork and Quilting. We can't wait to see what the article looks like and says.

This great honor of being one of the Top Ten Quilt Stores in the country, would not be possible without our great staff. Each of them have made the store what it is today. We are grateful to all of you, our customers, for allowing us the opportunity to do what we do each day! It is very exciting to be able to share your quilt store with the country. Not only are they showcasing the store, they are also showcasing Livermore. They planned to drive around and take some photos of attractions in town...that may have been clever photographer talk for going wine tasting but we won't know. All in all we are very excited and hope that this brings a whole new group of quilters to our area. We have been getting lots of emails from our friends across the country, they want to see what Leslie has done in the front they are.

Remember we are having our Monster of a Pillowcase Challenge....bring in a standard size pillowcase made from novelty fabrics. We are donating the first batch to the George Mark Children's House in San Leandro.

In Stitches,
Leslie and Melissa
