It is soooo cold here! Not too cold to bundle up (wear a hat) and come on in to Charlotte's where we'll WARM YOU UP with our exciting FABRIC SELECTION!
Lucky for you and us, this Saturday is LOCAL QUILT SHOP DAY! It is easy to get here. Here are two more reasons to be here this Saturday!
- Support your local quilt shop so we are around for a long, long time!
- Saturday from 10 - 4, spend $25 and we'll give you a THANK YOU GIFT - while supplies last! ;)
Spend $25 on Saturday and get a FREE FLIRT MINI-CHARM, while supplies last!
Check out our VALENTINE appropriate fabrics, actually appropriate any time! LOVE is the answer!
Here are some awesome BLACK/WHITE options, great to blend with lots of fabrics!
Textured, "weathered" and distressed-look fabrics are popular. Checkout this CHECKMATE quilt made using TIM HOLTZ' fabrics!
CHECKMATE is a modern beginner quilt pattern using foundation paper piecing to create flowers across a checkerboard background.
Interested in learning how to FOUNDATION PAPER PIECE? Email or message us with a suggested time, and we'll see about setting up a CLASS!
I've been sewing alot lately, and suddenly ALL my BASIC COLOR THREADS were at the end. I mean END! "WHAT?!" asks Thistle. LOL
Luckily, we have LOTS of THREAD at the store, and so I picked up a new supply.
For piecing I only use COTTON THREAD. I like PRESENCIA & AURIFIL.
Both are fine, which makes sewing a perfect scant 1/4" seam easier.
We also carry METTLER cotton thread.
These are pretty much the only color threads I use for piecing: NEARLY WHITE, OFF WHITE & MEDIUM GRAYISH
Cher used lots of thread to FINISH her 2021 2nd Saturday quilt. Beautiful!

It is easy to be like Buddy, and just nap on the radiator, (behind my desk) but get up, put on that coat and come on in to Charlotte's now! You know you'll go home enthused and ready to sew!
Even if your family is settling in for a "long winters nap", we have lots of cute & clever fabric, perfect for PILLOWCASES too!
Have a great weekend, and hope to see you soon!
