Hi all,

Has this beautiful, mild weather got you in the mood for CHRISTMAS?

Loving "short sleeve weather" in November!! Soak it up!


Retro Santa in Pink! This Vintage Santa caught our eye and we're printing up t-shirts for ourselves! Would you like one too?

Printed on Gilden's 100% cotton charcoal t-shirt, Team Santa will add cheer to your Christmas!

PRE-ORDER here and we'll deliver asap. CLICK HERE for price & size info.

In the store, CHRISTMAS INSPIRATION jumps off the shelves!

Let's start with "free" for our first inspiration of the day.

This pattern is FREE! Click here.

Use Cyndi Hershey's neat pattern with a panel and fabric from the NORTH POLE EXPRESS fabric line, click here.



Check out our KIT. Vintage-look NORTH POLE EXPRESS QUILT KIT, including the free pattern, plus all the fabrics for the top & binding. For details, click here, plus options fora matching back.

And maybe a pillowcase.

This quilt finishes at just 56 inches square, perfect for displaying on the back of the quilt, ready to grab for snuggling!

Looking for something bright & fun to work on this winter?

Check out DESTINATION INDONESIA, GOING TO BALI.
100% cotton, hand-made BATIK & HAND-DYED fabrics are just perfect for this pattern! They are all made in Indonesia after all.

Raise your hand if you want to go to BALI ! !!!



This quilt is bed-size, and perfect to sleep under for anyone who ever dreamed of going to Bali!

Destination Indonesia - Going to Bali quilt kit includes pattern, plus all fabric for the top & binding and finishes at 80 x 93 inches.. Click here.

Maybe you have some boys to sew for this year.

We've got ideas for all ages. Besides the Destination Indonesia quilt for any grown guy, what about a HOT WHEELS playmat?!

What a great quilt to do double duty. A cozy blanket to snuggle under and a race track for your toy cars!



Keep this project simple or embellish the printed panel with borders, and maybe the "driver's" name! Ask us for suggestions on how to do that.

Lynn has sons & grandsons too! HOT WHEELS RACE TRACK, DIGGERS, DUMPERS AND BIG BOY TOYS all would make especially fun pillow cases or quilts!



When you're picking out the fabrics, ask us for a copy of my TREMENDOUSLY TIDY TRAVEL PILLOW CASE. It's the one with the "stay clean" inner lining.

We carry the 12 x 16 inch TRAVEL PILLOW FORMS too! In-stock now!



Kathy's son is all grown up, but she still loves a THOMAS THE TRAIN quit!

Start with astack of 10" pre-cut squares, add a border and voila! you have a quick, fun quilt!

Come on in and we'll help you find the perfect pattern for your project!



Don't forget our FUNKY FRIENDS FACTORY patterns for super instructions on making stuffed animals & dolls.

SHELBY NON-SOCK MONKEY is so simple! I've got tips on turning these arms, legs & tails too. Check out the MONKEY BIZ FABRICS! lol




You can't get simpler than the SILLY SCRAP SNAKE pattern.

The perfect pattern for TULA PINK'S new snake fabric, HISSY FIT, from MOON GARDEN!



Or, maybe start with a pre-printed MERMAID doll panel to stitch up a cuddly "stuffie" toy. Each panel includes 3 dolls, their tails & more!

Maybe . . . could happen . . . are you all ready for Christmas and moving on?

Well, that's what I wonder about? How would that feel?

Yesterday's deliveries included VALENTINE fabric, new for 2023!

So cute, I am inspired! This might be the perfect project to work on in December, and start 2023 off "in step", rather than my usual "running to catch-up"?
