The leaves are almost gone and now it is time to store up fabric for a long winter!!! We hope it will be a short snow season.
Our events this fall include our local Northeast Iowa Quilt Guild Northern Lights show at the Decorah Middle School on Saturday, Oct. 20 (10-5) and Sunday, Oct. 21 (10-4)
We will be in Manchester for their show Quilting Treasures at the Delaware County Fairgrounds Pavilion on Saturday, Nov. 3 (9-5) and Sunday, Nov. 4 (10-4) and The North Iowa Quilters One-stop Shopping Spree on Friday, Nov. 9 (10-5) and Saturday, Nov. 10 (10-4), The spree is held at the Best Western Holiday Lodge ( I-35/US18 exit 194 west). It is like a big shop hop you can walk to, about 13 vendors around the room, nice weather inside too!
Our new favorite pattern " Bricks" from Mountainpeek Creations is great for horizontal panels but also works for focus fabrics. We have done it up in Dr. Seuss, Christmas, fall, Star Wars and race cars.
We just got in some new patterns and books for charm packs and jelly rolls, already have big ideas for them.
The pattern Divided by Three is a really neat table runner that can be made into a big quilt too. Hopefully by show time we will have our new black and gold line made up into the throw size.
New fabrics in are Kansas Troubles' Harvest Moon, with its precuts. Other new ones is a Japanese line called Imperial 8 by Kaufman in bronze and blue. We have it done up with the pattern Spotlight. We've did another pattern Sidelines with the Stephanie Brandenburg new line. We have received some new batik bolts too. Barbara Brackman's Metropolitan Fair is a new charm we have in.
We are excitedly waiting for, and trying to figure out where we are going to put it, the complete line of Primitive Gatherings, and the half collection of Double Chocolate and Holly Taylor's new line and of course all their friends: jelly roll, layer cakes and charms.
Until the end of the month Halloween fabric will be 25% off.
Watch for our coupon in the new Country Register from Iowa and Wisconsin.
Hope to see you in Decorah.
