December 2012 Newsletter

 Merry Christmas to all.   We have had Christmas  here too!!   UPS and FedEx have been here every other day, 
but like the rest of you we will see the bills in the mail next month.  It has been fun though.

The new fabrics we have gotten in are a big panel of deer, eagles, and Case and Farmall tractors.  They are 44x36.
The Case one is the new tractor and the Farmall is nostalgic.   There are coordinates to go along.  
The new line of Holly Taylor is here with her usual neat leaves and rich colors.   
Kaufman has come out with a peacock in taupe, gray blue, gold and cream.  It is the same as last year's bright one.  
Moda's Double Chocolate has beautiful rich colors, red, dark brown and teal.  
Thimbleberries Lake Life is a very neat lodge look with large panels. The coordinates are bobbers and a allover print. Metropolitan Fair by Barbara Brackman is gorgeous with that wonderful Moda feel. It has two coordinating wide backs.   
We have gotten in more wide backs,  and many more on order.  We have been trying to find some that are less expensive for the people who do charity quilts.  
Primitive Gathering precuts are here to go with all the prints.   They are so awesome.  The little sheep are adorable.

In the horse line, we have one from Quilting Treasures called Wild Horses.   It has horses with alot blues and the coordinates are creams, sand and browns.  
Wild Wings has a large panel, pillow panels and some coordinates.   Timeless Treasures has a horse by Greg & Co.  
It has some neat allover coordinates, a beautiful stripe and small blocks.  

One of our very first lines we had in the store was Moda's Paris Flea Market. It has been their most requested line to reprint. So they have. The charm packs, layer cakes and jelly rolls will be here next week and the bolts will be in next year. Soft pinks, yellows and greens.
I am saving the best for last.......the new Real Tree deer is here and it did not disappoint.   The colors are very deep and rich browns and golds. We have come up with a queen size quilt using the panel.   It's been a winner.    It's a must have for all wildlife lovers.

We are going to run our gift certificate special this year again.  Buy a $25 gift certificate get a $5 certificate free till Christmas.
