We got in a new kids flannel called "Funny Farm", it is really cute with some neat coordinates.  "Too Many Men" from Red Rooster is here for winter.  New Christmas from Windham, Winter Wonderland and Henry Glass with his collection Oh Holy Night.  Our Halloween collections are : Witcvy Poo from RJR, Halloween Masquerade by Red Rooster and In The Beginnings Halloween.  New is Boyd's Bears in flannel from Sprectrix.    The Timeless Treasures apples with cream and red background is here too.    Some new Civil War additions from Marcus. Our new flannel charms and layer cakes from Holly Taylor Shaded Oaks are here waiting for their companion prints.   We also have Kona Cotton jelly rolls with pastels, brights and creams.  We have the creams in charms and layer cakes too. Several new Farmall prints have come in. RealTree has another set of fantastic wildlife coming out this fall.

We had a busy June with sales reps displaying all their wares from market.  It was impossible to pick our favorites from the new Moda Primitive Gatherings' patriotic grouping so we had to get the whole collection. Bad news, it won't be here till October.  From Red Roster we ordered their BOM "Something to Crow About".  We are going to break it into wallhangings also because it is a nice size that way too.  

We had an exciting All Iowa shop hop.  Met alot of new quilters and everyone seemed to be having a good time.  We are looking forward to doing it again next year, maybe with some special Iowa  fabric.  A quilter from Omaha, Nebraska, was the lucky winner of our in-store drawing..

We took a day off last month and hit several shops to the west.  Had a great time at Debbie's in Osage, Quilted Forest. Country Threads, and Quilters Garden.  We picked up new Tiny Ones from Pieced Tree and some patterns from Country Threads. We love visiting different shops, everyone has a different flavor.

Hope to see you at shop hop!
