Hi all,

"If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all." Words to live by.

How perfect is this fabric?!
Lots of small projects or large can use these upbeat messages.

Maybe just buy a yard, and then include one saying in every project you do the rest of the year, even if just stitched to the back.

The Time Is Now! Here is BREAKING NEWS from Windham Fabric.

Check out the other fabrics in the collection by CLICKING HERE.

Be sure to read MANIFESTO. I Love it! MAKE IT COUNT, MAKE IT LAST, MAKE IT PRETTY. So many positive applications for makers and non-makers alike.

From designer Janine Vangool, "This collection turns media into positive messages and encouraging words of positive action and self-care."


We're getting closer every day, I know it, but I can hardly wait for FLOWERS to reappear! I miss the color they present on a daily basis.

Shall we turn to flowers on fabric? Why not!?!
Let's start with a flower that is neither easy to pronounce or spell: Chrysanthemum.

A popular flower with artists. So much drama!

When you search Chrysanthemum on my web site, you'll come up with many versions.

The above an original painting by Phillip Jacobs, printed on fabric, from the Kaffe Fasset Collective.

Such a great print, JAPANESE CHRYSANTHEMUM is available in several colors.

What about an entire CHRYSANTHEMUM quilt?

Here's an entire bouquet of WILDFLOWERS from Charley Harper.


Besides the best selection of COTTON PRINTS around, we also carry an excellent selection of SOLID COLOR COTTONS.

KONA COTTONS from Robert Kaufman are some of the best available. You'll find many designers recommend them specifically.

I'm headed off to the MENNONITE RELIEF SALE this evening.

If you're looking for something different to do tonight or tomorrow, with a "can do", "good news" theme, consider the MCC Sale at the Hutchinson Fair Grounds.

226 donated quilts will be auctioned! Details can be found here on their website.

Tomorrow morning we'll have our SECOND SATURDAY class.

Two sessions: 9 am, as usual, plus an 11 am bonus meeting.

If you are enrolled, you should have received a separate email. Please check and let me know if you are still missing those emails.


This April is a weird month where the 2nd Thursday follows the 2nd Saturday. So you have time to put SEWING CLUB at CHARLOTTE'S on your calendar, next Thursday at 10 am.

Mary will be introducing and demonstrating a brand new pattern! Come join the fun with other interesting people who sew!

Click here for details on SEWING CLUB.

Have a great weekend.

Hope to see you soon,

Yes Hal, I'm nearly done, and can soon give you the attention you deserve! xox
