JULY 2011 NOTES FROM NANCY
My store is full of new Fall fabric. It has all found a home at the front of the shop so when you come in you will see wonderful colors of Fall and we are still waiting for nice weather and summer right?
And—the rest of Jo’s Carolina arrived this week. So that line grew from the 18 that you saw to 24 bolts. Now, you will have to come and pick up the rest of the 6 fabrics!
And then a few days ago Happy Jack arrived and I will be kitting that quilt only making it a bit smaller. I even have the wide black rick-rack for it. However, I am still waiting on four more bolts that go with the line. Check out the picture on Whats New on the website.
And it never stops—my out of the box Christmas fabric came with those cool crazy snowmen that we liked several years ago. There is a free pattern you can download from the Andover website for this quilt called Flannel for All Seasons. The fabric I ordered is cotton.
Jo’s Little Women has stopped for the summer and will resume in September as well as the hand piecing classes.
Remember “My Garden Quilt” that I was going to do as a block of the month a long time ago? Well, I have 5 blocks done and on display on the wall and two more ready to stitch. The wool has to be dyed for the kits and by August or September the kits should be ready. At this time I do not know the cost.
I have received the wool for a pumpkin and flag wall hanging kit from Blackberry Primitives. I will get that started when I get back from Primitives.
Saturday Crankers will be sewing on their hand cranks and early machines with tails on Saturday, July 23. Come and check us out, you may want to be a “cranker” yourself.
Remember that Journey to the Past is coming up July 29, and 30. Don’t miss this event.
I am off to my Dad’s for Fathers Day and combining it with a class reunion. Then on Sunday I am off to Primitives of the Midwest—my annual fun trip. I’ll be back in the shop June 27th.
Keep Stitching, Nancy
