Summer 2013 Newsletter

 Rain drops keep falling on my head.......but that doesn't stop me from quilting!   Well, maybe it has slowed us up some.  
 As some may have heard we had more than 7 feet of flood water  in the basement.  Luckily, nothing made it into the shop. So we are open, stop in and see us.
We've had wonderful help from friends, family and neighbors these past five days. There wasn't much in the basement but when it is in water logged cardboard boxes and mud it is twice as difficult to handle.   So we are finally down to the power washing with the bleach.  We are moving on to the garage so hopefully by the weekend we can get back to some normality.   

The UPS truck has still made it thru...a new flannel north woods panel and coordinates, some  new batiks and Moda's 3 Sisters Wintergreen line, neat black, greens and reds.   
The new Japanese is Kona Bay's Garden of Dreams.  It has peonies and other rich colors with a panel. 
Icicles Kisses from Kansas Troubles is here in the usual rich KT colors, charms, layer cakes and jelly rolls.  Maywood has a Halloween line done up into a cute little wall hanging and runner and of course it is kitted up. 
Some wide backs have come in, two Holly Taylor batiks in purples and greens, and Moda's Wintergreen has two, one in black and one in olive green.  
I almost forgot that from Print Concepts is the new adult Caterpillar and the children's line of Tonka toys in a sandbox. There is a neat pattern in the new magazine, Quilt It Today, at $3.99,  that we did up for the Caterpillar.  And of course it is kitted up!  
We have a new Halloween runner, the Twister from Pieced Tree, kitted up. 

All we have left of the All Iowa Shop Hop fabric is one twin size kit of the Onyx color and a few runner kits of the other colors.  It seemed like all the hoppers had a good time, especially when you're on the road with friends, doing what you like!  We are looking forward to it next year already.  Put it on your calendar, June 1 thru 20, 2014.  
Speaking of calendars, mark July 5-6 in Williamsburg for a quilt show we will be vending at.  
We will be doing our Two Stop Shop Hop with Country Stitchin'  July 24-27th. You should be able to make it in a couple of hours.

August is the Oelwein quilt show.  
We hope to see you all this summer, you know it is not over yet!
