Hello friends!

I think it is time for another sale, and this time, it will be all notions 25% off, including threads, rulers, needles, and more. Also, clearance batiks will be at $8/M, and regular batiks at 25% off.

I’m happy to help you electronically if you are not able to book a visit in person.

You may book a visit on my website for you and up to three friends. Masks are requested.

The sale is on from now until October 31.

And I have some captivating photos to share with you that have come from customers who’ve been doing creative things with their time.

Samples Quilts

Gail Newell completed this quilt that was a winner in a recently held online exhibit in Richmond. She used a free-form curved piecing technique to make the moon in her wall hanging.

Here is the link to the exhibit to see her award-winning quilt:

The applique flowers were enough work that Gail thinks she may never do that again!

This quilt was recently completed by Laura Gates. I love that when Laura makes a quilt, she often starts with a pattern but then makes it her own.

In this case, Laura started with my One House, Two House… pattern, which you can see in my Etsy shop:

One House, Two House… Modern Quilt Kit – Contemporary Quilt Kit – Neutrals Quilt – Japanese Taupes

But, as you can see, she created an even more fascinating design with her variations in size and the addition of lots more colour. So inspiring!

Maureen Kennedy made a larger version of my quilt, Yama to Kawa, which is pictured to the left. She told me that, as she was making it, she found the half-rectangle triangle points didn’t match her satisfaction in one or two places. So Maureen added some embroidery to cover the offending spots. She sent a photo or two, which are shown below.

Well, that’s it for now. I will leave you with the news that I have a new line of Robert Kaufman Essex linen and cottons arriving soon. So, stay tuned for watching some great photos as soon as I have them.

In the meantime, please be well and, if you are ready for a shopping trip, make an appointment and visit me!
