I'm excited that the sun is shining bright today and it is not very cold. Maybe the ground will start warming significantly enough that our favorite spring bulbs will begin to show their pretty heads!
Meanwhile, check out our newest EMBROIDERY KITS. Many FLOWERS! Kits come complete with hoops & floss & fabric. These shown are $24 each.
Great selection in the store and soon to be added online. Or place a PHONE ORDER. Call the store! 316-284-2547
New books too! Get in on this latest craze for embroidery, even if you've never dabbled before. This is a great book! FRESHLY STITCHED.
My nephew got the brilliant idea to "work from home" from HAWAII for the entire month of February. Inspired by his fun, "shot from the balcony as he "worked" photos", I started working on a quilt using lots of our TROPICAL FRUIT & FLOWER fabrics.
This new pattern book, VINTAGE BEAUTY, from Lavender Lime.
So, I spent those sub-zero days focused on dragon fruit, pineapples, people on the beach & sailboats, yes!
I love the way it turned out. I backed it in soft, loopy FIRESIDE FLEECE. It will make a great summer quilt, or extra layer for the next sub-zero weather that calls for serious distraction! ;)
Here are some of the fabrics. And some others to choose from. Check out this style. WATERCOLOR is super-trendy!
Speaking of WATERCOLOR style, here is more. Mary's new bag made with HOFFMAN of California's current challenge fabric, a WATERCOLOR FLORAL!
Kirsten has been climbing the ladder, and hanging new MODELS, including new PANELS!
Enter the front door of the store and you are greeted by BIG BURSTS of color. FLOWERS! WATERCOLOR! POW!
This winter has been so severe!
We love these IGUANAS, and hate when we hear they are falling from trees in Florida! Kirsten is inspired to make them a quilt!
Come check out her progress, and all these great linen-weave prints from NORTHCOTT. DUBLIN - 100% cotton that feels like silk and looks like linen! We have 30+ colors in stock now and more on the way.
Now that I've mentioned the trending style of watercolor painting, you must see this homage to BOB ROSS, the ultimate painting teacher!
This beautiful panel is available. Comes complete with LABELS.
Here's a close-up for detail. Gotta love BOB!
Speaking of close-up, don't miss our FACEBOOK LIVE SALE at 1 pm CST, today, FRIDAY.
And be sure to watch Kirsten's UNBOXINGS on FACEBOOK! We're looking for many deliveries today. Between the weather and the delays in global shipping, I feel like a damn broke somewhere, and now fabric is flowing fast! At least 5 of these boxes were intended as January deliveries.
So, lots of new stuff in the store. As hard as we pedal, we can't seem to keep up with getting it all online. So, bear with us, keep checking, and don't be shy, pick up the phone and call if you can't make it in and you don't find it yet on our website. ;) 316-284-2547.
Mark your calendars for SPRING SCHOOLHOUSE March 19 & 20. We'll be demonstrating from 10 to 4 both days, and have special fat quarter bundles and quilts on display. 4 stores include CHARLOTTE'S SEW NATURAL in Newton, NEEDLE IN A HAYSTACK in Severy, HEN FEATHERS in east Wichita, and PICKET FENCE in west Wichita.
Have a great weekend and hope to see you soon!
