November is already here
– are you ready for it? We've been working like crazy trying to
get samples done for you on all our new lines that have come
in. Come in and see if you can get inspired from what we have
done. This is the month when it's time to start making gifts
for the holidays. Thanksgiving will be here before we know it
and right after that on Sat. the 28th it will be
“Small Business Saturday” and lots of small
businesses in Superior will be doing this. We will be having
new “demo's” going on all day, goodies, drawings for prizes and
who knows what else!! We will also be open from 9-4 on that
The Frivols Tins from Moda are Here– these are small wall
hangings with everything you need except backing in a tin. We
now have 3 of the 4 and the 4th is on its way. They
are already becoming collector items before they are even
displayed! They are cute just in their tins! They retail for
$44.95, but I lowered my price on them to $35 as I thought the
price was a bit high.....come and get them. What great gifts for
Ann Hazelwood's Novels-the series has ended with this last book.
If you haven't started that series – get those books now...it
is a really good series and you will love the ghost that is
involved in all the books. This is a great gift for anyone who
loves a good novel. I will miss those great characters and the
books. Hopefully she will start another one.
Swing Coat is done
….Mo did most of the work on this great looking coat that just
happens to be in my size. The pattern has it in all sizes and
it will fit anyone. Duck fabric was used in this one and it has
that “modern” look even though swing coats have been around for
many, many years – they just made a comeback. This is for
sewers with some experience.
What Can I Make for Gifts for Family and Friends??
This is the question I am asking and I know a lot of you are
too. Luckily, we have some answers for you and some great
samples for you to see that will help you decide what will
work. I've been looking at the new patterns out since Quilt
Market and will be going to Tri-State Market this weekend. I
just came back from a Quilt Retreat and got a few ideas there
also. I just need more time to get those all together for you.
10 – minute Table runners – Can do one for about $12
Microwave Bowl Holders – make sets of these from your
scraps or get a whole layer cake and
make 20 sets of them!
Scarfs – we have them precut and they will be out
tomorrow! Cost $7.95 for infinity kind.
Small Bags – we have a couple new patterns – one
from This n' That which we have sample for and a new one
from Atkinson which we will have shortly.
Throw quilts – we have a lot of kits for these – take
your pick – kids, baby, adults- for both males and
Aprons – make a whole set with matching hot pads,
Pillowcases – these are always big with everyone and
can be made from some fun fabrics.
Table Runners, Place mats, Napkins, Casserole Carriers,
18” Doll Clothes – what grandchild or child wouldn't
love a wardrobe of these! I'd like them for my doll. Did
I mention the great sleeping bags too.
And I will have many more for you each week...........................
