It’s been a busy week prepping and packing for the first show of the new year. We’ve been busy making fabric bundles, kits, processing new shipments, organizing quilts etc. in preparation for The Creative Stitches & Crafting Alive Show in Abbotsford, BC which begins this Friday.
The Truck is nearly full and the trailer has some space that will be quickly filled.
There will be lots of new quilts & fabric as well we have some brand new Cantik Batiks kits that haven’t even made it the store shelves.
If you plan to attend don’t forget to print your 2 for 1 coupon and bring a friend along for double the fun.
We hope to seem many of you there
Last week in the pouring rain arrived a pile of new fabrics. And waaaaay in the back under piles of fabric bolts were plenty of new precuts. Watch for all of these to start popping up on the website this week.
We also have a sneak peek of a new jelly roll quilt kit made with Serenity by Amy Ellis which will be available soon.
Wishing you all a happy Monday!
Did you know that we have three floors here at the shop? If you’ve visited the store you are fully aware of the two floors of shopping space but there is a third place we jokingly refer to as The Dungeon. The Dungeon is the basement which is mostly comprised of a little bit of office space and a whole lot of storage…for kits, block of the month programs, fabric precuts and more. I thought it might be kind of fun to show you a few snapshots of what is down there.
Thread, thread & more thread!
The Dungeon could easily be a quilter’s dream prison
Last week Brenda brought in her latest “work in progress”. After laying out and placing all her wool appliqué pieces for this Kim Diehl pillow pattern she brought in her block to select a border. This piece is so pretty I couldn’t wait for it to be finished to show you. And just look at those gorgeous coordinating Valdani threads.
We’ll be sure to have her bring it in when it’s complete for “Sew and Tell”.
If you’ve been into the shop there is a good chance you’ve met Scout and Jersey. They really are not so fierce. Just leave the fabric alone….
Jersey making her presence known
Scout looks very serious
What pet owner/quilter wouldn’t love a dog that guards fabric?
