Countdown, top 5 . . .
Friday December 10, 2021

Hi all!

Family & friends still looking for gift ideas for you?

Keeping it "short & sweet", HERE IS MY LIST OF TOP 5 GIFTS, available now, any of which would make a great gift anytime, not just for Christmas!  

Register as a customer on my web site, then be sure to add any or all of these items to your "WISH LIST", and share that link liberally with your friends and family.  LOL  
Tip: When I set mine up, I used my summer birthday as my "event date".

  1. SHOPPER'S CLUB membership - gives the biggest bang for the buck!  Remind them that you'll think of them every time you shop at Charlotte's and save 20%! ;)  And we'll extend your membership by 12 months if you are already a member.
  2. GIFT CERTIFICATEs - easy to order online, flexible: can be spent online or in the store in Newton.
  3. BOHIN Christmas Cracker - a unique idea, I know, a little like a bad Halloween idea, but pins & needles in this cracker are just the thing for a stitcher like you!
  5. MYSTERY GIFT for any Creative!

The MORRIS BUNGALOW fabrics are expected in the store soon, and the blocks will be chosen from this beautiful collection, ORIGINAL MORRIS from Free Spirit, coming soon!

The SHADES OF PURPLE have so many possibilities.  Here's one I'm exploring.  Use a theme fabric as the background?

AMISH SUNSET has been fun to play with.  Kirsten has chosen SUPER BLACK for her background and is playing with turning 12 twelve inch blocks into a king-size quilt!  It is looking SUPER!
