As we wind down the summer with picnics and the bridge walk over Labor Day weekend, we look forward to pumpkins, apples, and all the colors of Fall. I am looking at a wool pattern of a pumpkin and owl that I am going to make and kit soon as this newsletter is written.
The Cal-Co Quilt Show in Marshall is the 8th and 9th of September and I am looking forward to being a vendor. I hope you saved a little money back after the AQS show in Grand Rapids.
I have a trunk show of Maggie’s Wool Bed Runner for display for a couple of weeks. Be sure and stop in to check it out.
Leesburg fabric by Jo Morton is flying out the door and we continue to make more fat quarter and fat eighth bundles. The Red Button Mini Quilt kits are doing very well. Just got in more patterns. Looking forward to a large order of Marcus Fabrics that was placed yesterday. I will be pulling a variety of fabrics for the new Block of the Month “Legacy Sampler”. This pattern is only available as a BOM to shops who did the “Vendor Hop” at Spring Market. We will start the sample in September so you can get an idea of fabrics being used in the quilt.
Debby has a few more months of Jo Morton’s Little Women Club and then she will be starting the 3rd session of Prairie Women’s Sewing Circle. If you want to learn techniques and only spend 2 hours each month at the shop, this is the Club for you. There will be more details on this later.
Here are a few pictures of the new patterns and magazines that have been arriving this past week.
