English Paper Piecing

We're excited about English Paper Piecing.  Linda's been working on this Pies and Tarts quilt, from Australian designer Sue Daley.  We'll be having a class March 27 at 1:00.  Called Tea, Pies, and Tarts, you'll enjoy refreshments and learn the techniques for doing English Paper piecing.  We'll have starter kits for you, and show you just the right tools.

First Saturday 2011

For First Saturday 2011, we are once again using a fabulous Lori Smith pattern.  The directions are great, and include construction pictures and pressing arrows.  You can make either the Batik or Reproduction colorway, and choose the appliqued or pieced center with your finishing kit for either colorway.  We'll be constructing a little of the Batik quilt each month, but our Reproduction quilt is almost done. 

More Staff on Hand

Toni and Darlene are ready to cut your fabric at the front cutting table, while Neppie and Kim are at the back table, near the clearance section. Customer service is what we do best!

We made it! We survived a week of snow and ice and got to the shop on First Saturday, amid more snowfall. Here are Marilyn and Charlotte, ready to help you at the register.
