One Seam Scarf – Brilliant

I just finished re-reading Alice in Wonderland and these pictures are soooo appropriate – Off With Her Head!

Nan wouldn’t let us take a picture with her pretty face.  She even checked the camera before she approved.  It’s our loss – Nan is a cutie pie.

But the scarves are the topic.

ONE SEAM!  These are scarf kits from Minkee – 1/3 yard and one seam.

The kits have the minkee pre cut and short instructions.

They are done in a blink of an eye.  Be sure to use lots of pins so the minkee stays in place.

Click on any picture to see all the different kits.

My fav is the Chinchilla.  It’s a little more expensive but it’s slam gorgeous.




New Quickie Winter Kits.

Good Saint Nick

Identity Crisis

Three Wise Guys

Aren’t these the cutest!  I can’t decide which is my favorite.

The last one is called Three Wise Guys and it just might be my fav.  The center guy is the leader.  The one on the left is the instigator and the one on the right is the happy follower.

We offer all three as kits and as separate patterns.

The one in the middle is called Identity Crisis.  A sheep in snowman’s clothing!

These designs are from Bigfork Bay Cotton Company and the designer is J. Blake.

UFO Day with Carol

Merry Go Round

UFO Day with Carol

Tuesday, Dec. 28, 2010 from 9:30 am until 4:30 pm or 4:30 pm until 9 pm

Got some UFO’S?  (unfinished objects)

I (Carol) certainly have plenty and I really want to finish my Merry Go Round quilt made with our Springtime Batik jelly roll.  Lots of fun to do!

The picture shows it in pieces but the top is ready for the last two borders.

Hmmmm.  Maybe I better bring in another UFO in case I finish that one too fast.  HA HA!!!

Pick a UFO or two and come spend the day and/or evening sewing in our beautiful classroom with Carol.  No charge

Paintstiks Play Class

A new year is coming – time to try something new and different.

Paintstiks can add a new dimension to your quilts, purses, and accessories.  It’s not JUST art quilts – but that sounds like fun, too!

Join us for Paintstiks Play Class on Monday, December 27, 1pm – 5 pm.

I’ve got it on my calendar.  I just have to try it!

You will be able to try stencils, rubbing plates, and more effects.  There is a materials fee so you can use our stuff without investing a fortune before you try it out.  Decide what you want to buy to take home for more fun.

Students get a discount on supplies at Batiks Etcetera & Sew What Fabrics!

This class will be during our pre inventory sale so come early and shop!

Oh, and that great wall quilt shown above is also available as just a pattern.  If you click on the picture you will see the complete kit.

Think Spring (even if it isn’t even winter yet!)

It’s cold, there is snow on the ground, more is coming.

ARGH – give me some Vitamin D!

Instead I’ll give myself some spring batik.

These are all from the Lunn’s, Artisan Batik, by Kaufman.

I love the scale of these and the colors.  Click on any picture to see more about it online.

Deep breath – winter can be beautiful too.  But spring stirs my heart!

Pantie Raid Final Report

Wow!  Quilters are the most caring people!  I’m so glad I get to spend my days with such wonderful people.

Our final count for the Pantie Raid is 102 packs with 561 pairs.  We collected a chunk of cash too.  The Family Resource Center, Inc. which serves our area is thrilled.  We will be delivering the panties, cash, and a bunch of pillowcases this week.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
