I've continued to add new products, not just to the website but in the shop too! Please check out the new arrivals online or make an appointment to stop by the shop and ask to see new arrivals. Shipping is free when total purchase exceeds $75. Order ahead and select 'pick up in shop' if you're running tight on time but would like to pick it up in person.



Shop Calendar --I'm doing better at maintaining the online calendar. Haven't seen it?  Check it out here.
Key dates the shop will be closed:
Oct. 17 - Wed.
Oct. 21-26 Sun-Fri @ Retreat
October 31 - Wed.

I am working on several commissions this month, so I may be in town, but not working in the shop. Please call as I'm happy to take a break and meet you at the shop. Still best to make an appointment if you would like to drop off a quilt or pick up resources to make your next quilt or sewing project. Thank you for considering options locally...I can't stock everything but have made an effort to have available commonly needed fabrics, notions, tools and have new inspiration with a variety of books and patterns. I am happy to order on your behalf when possible and will help you find something regionally if that makes the best sense.


NEW monthly event for 2nd Monday of the month - 9am - 10am Show & Share for all quilters/crafters/sewers in the area; optional opportunity to stay and sew if you'd like. If your group has special initiatives at various times of the year, here is an opportunity to share with the community and get additional participants.

November 12 -- Show & Share --Bring what you've been working on; free pattern of a new design for a Quilt of Valor will be shared, stay and sew if you'd like. I'm planning some refreshments too.

Tree SkirtHoliday Tree Skirt -- Week of November 11 -- possible dates are  -Sunday; Tues morning; Wed, Thurs. or Friday - let me know what works best for you.

On request I've designed this and will teach it to all who are interested.

This would make a fun table topper in a variety of colors too.

OTHER CLASS OPTIONS TO CONSIDER --  jelly roll rug; bag; patterns from Barbara Persing, Elizabeth Hartman, Violet Craft (english paper piecing--all by hand or foundation paper piecing), Sew Kind of Wonderful (new book with lots of seasonal wallhangings and curved ruler), Turning Twenty and Strip Therapy. Many options to choose in the shop from these last 6 designers. Make an appointment to come check them out and help me plan a schedule for classes. Check the 'patterns' category on the website for just some of the possibilities --come in for the rest!

If there are any particular techniques or projects that you'd like to have as a class, gather your friends who are interested and we'll schedule a class for this fall/winter/spring that works for you. Costs will be determined based on number of students and time needed for the project.

Aurifil Thread Box Offer

Aurifil Thread Box and spool of thread
Aurifil has extended a great deal and I'm offering it right here in Grand Coulee. $14.99 gets you a spool of white thread and a box to put it in--your own brand new box! Typically here in Grand Coulee, I offer the spools at $12.50/spool and if you buy a whole case (12 spools) at one time, you get the case for $125. This offer will let you buy them at one or more a month until you reach 10, then you'll get the last 2 (to make 12) free. You can do this as often as you'd like, but is available only to the first 30 customers. Stop in and get your numbered box and fill it as many times as you'd like! You must have the box in hand each time you purchase for it to count towards your total case purchase.

My Happy Place - The Beach
I you are not a regular reader of my blog, you might have missed my participation in the "My Happy Place" Blog Hop that is just wrapping up. I still have a few kits left of my row "The Beach" and coordinating fabrics.
