It's started! The All Iowa Shop Hop is off and running.
We have done up the fabric in a wave bargello from the book Twist and Turn Bargello. Of course, we have the book and kits. We also have three table runners using the Pieced Tree patterns.

Don't forget to run off your passport from the All Iowa website or pick up a copy of the magazine. For $5, you get an awesome guide to all the shops participating in Iowa and several exclusive patterns. You only need to go to five shops to be eligible for one tier of prizes.

New fabric in this month:
Some new wide back batiks from Timeless Treasures. We still have over 120 wide backs to choose from.
Let Freedom Ring, Nancy Gere's Civil War collection for Windham fabrics
Lakeside Reflections from Elizabeth Studios, fishing panel and several coordinates.

Also just in are the eight newest Tiny Ones from Pieced Tree Patterns.

The Row by Row Experience starts June 21.

Sunday, June 14, is Butterscotch's 10th birthday. Stop in from 1-4 and wish Butterscotch a  happy birthday and get 10% off your purchase.

July 2016

Row by Row began June 21.  Our row is an appliquéd branch with a Robin.  The event starts June 21.  Each shop gives away a pattern and will have the kit available for purchase.  Shops all over the United States, Canada and Europe are participating.  The first person to complete a quilt using eight or more rows and turns it into any participating shop gets 25 free fat quarters.   Row by Row ends September 6. Don't give up too soon, last year there were some shops that didn't get a winner -- you have till October 31 to finish the quilt!

New fabrics that have come in include:
Quiltling Treasures' Turkey and Polar Bear panels.

 Timeless Treasures Roses, a vibrant large print, a stripe, and several coordinates. 

Moda’s Town Square, Holly Taylor’s new Christmas line in pretty blue.

The new Quilters Travel Companion for 2016

The new Quilt Samplers are here also.  We've also got in some new batiks, and a new line of wide backs, grey, black and white, a gold, and a pretty brown  all in a tone-on-tone leaf design.

We are excited for the fun to begin, come join us.
