Fall! My Favorite Time of Year

I just LOVE Fall!!! The colors always make me feel good. Even on a rainy, yucky, windy day. Watching the leaves fly just brightens my day. This is out the back window here at the shop. Don't you just want to keep this season going for a while? Well you can! Why not make a project to bring the color inside?

This is a fun class that Donna Holthusen is teaching Saturday, November 15th. It uses the popular Book "9 Patch Pizzaz". Just pick a great fabric that you have a hard time cutting and add a few more fabrics for making 9 patches to scatter through, and TA DA!! You have a fantastic quilt.

Here are some of the great fall fabrics in stock now for putting some great color in your house! We have several small projects using fall colors that you can get done in just one day.

Bags Gallore

Friday's Class "Bags Gallore" was a big sucsess! Donna Holthusen taught the girls how to make these fun totes. They can be used for all kinds of things. Groceries, Diaper bags, Lunch bags or just tote around your junk bags. The bags are sooo much fun to make with great fabric.
Many of the girls want to make these bags for everyone the know for the hollidays. It's fun to match up the fabric to the person.

Such fun to have a finished project when the class is over! These bags look so fun for fall! Maybe we can talk Donna into teaching it again?

Tiny Tots From Red Rooster

We just got in a great line from Red Rooster. It's called "Tiny Tots". It is soooooo cute! It reminds me of when I was a kid. (a long time ago!) The Panel makes a cloth book, however you can cut the blocks out and just go to town, making your own design. There are eight different great coordinates that go with it. I will be making fat quarter packs soon.

This is a free pattern with any purchase of the fabric. It's a very cute project. I can have a kit specially made for you.

Movie Night

DON'T MISS OUT ON MOVIE NIGHT! This has been such a fun event! From noon to midnight, we sew, play games, win prizes, eat popcorn and pizza, watch movies and just have a fun time with each other. The cost is $35. Dinner and other goodies are provided. If you were your PJ's you get 15% off in the shop for the event. We still have some space so give me a call or stop by and sign up.

Have you ever wondered what we do with the popcorn machine in the classroom? Well, We brought it in for movie night two years ago and It has been fun to make popcorn for events like movie night, the Christmas Club, shop hop and any other time it sounds good. We will be making fresh popcorn all day on movie night. So even if you didn't join us for the day, stop by for some popcorn and enjoy some fun while you are here.
