Notions and Batiks Sale!
posted Oct 7, 2020, 10:00 PM by Lorna Shapiro
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.
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:
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!
