Hi all!

Hope you are enjoying these first few days of Fall. Lovely here in Kansas, so far.

For me this week was particularly fast. I almost forgot to write this newsletter!

Our annual CENTRAL KANSAS QUILT SHOP HOP starts in 6 days! Next week Thursday through Saturday, we'll be open 9 am to 8 pm, and on SUNDAY Oct 3 we'll be here 11 am to 4 pm. This is rare, so even if you aren't "hopping", you might want to take advantage of a quiet afternoon to browse the fabrics, etc.

First time HOPPING? Be sure to ask for your special button at the first shop, when you pick up your passport!

After the first weekend, the Shop Hop continues for 6 more days, wrapping up Saturday afternoon Oct 9. You'll be eligible for the GRAND PRIZE DRAWING of more than $500 in Martelli goodies when you visit all 9 shops. But you'll be eligible for our store GIFT BASKET if you enter just once. So don't forget to stop in and see us during this time.

Wondering where all these shops are? Click here for a MAP.

Block kits are cut, and ready for next week. Just $7.99 this year. You'll need all 9 to complete my quilt. Included in our FINISHING KIT, are all the fabrics for 3 more blocks, the sashing, border & binding. Click here to pre-order and pick up at the store. We'll refund the postage charged on any web orders.

So much fun to see the web store "filling in", starting to be more reflective of what's available here at 710 N. Main Street.

Click here to check out some of the BY ANNIE patterns. We also carry all the stuff needed to make each pattern, the interfacings, the zippers, the strap hooks, etc. You can always make a note in the COMMENTS section of your order, saying that you want all the extras. We can pull those and send you an extra invoice, shipping together and making it easier for you to get started!

We have a fabulous selection of BATIK COTTONS, and more on the way from ISLAND BATIK. Check out this classy version of BY ANNIE'S SWITCHBACK, convertible backpack/shoulder bag.

We also have a fabulous selection of KAFFE COLLECTIVE and more has just arrived and been updated on our web. Click here to see. PERFECT for BAGS!

And we have QUILT KITS, including the ever-popular EXPLODING HEART!Click here to see kits.

Kirsten did a great job with her EXPLODING HEART!

Speaking of Kirsten, I need to finish this newsletter and get down to the store, as we have FACEBOOK LIVE at 1pm!! (Central time.)

Don't miss us, I have no idea what we are doing, and so it will be a surprise to all of us! LOL

Click here for FACEBOOK LIVE, follow us to get notifications (although my own phone often misses this! ;<).

As I said earlier, we have had a fast week, with lots of NEW PRODUCT in the store. Including PRE-CUTS & YARDAGE of DIAMOND DOTS by Wilmington. This stuff is quite fun. It is a print, yet will blend well with batik too. For some reason, I keep thinking about T-SHIRT QUILTS when I look at this fabric. Just because of all the colors?

We also received the entire collection of KAFFE'S SHOT COTTON, but that's for another newsletter. Stay tuned. ;)

Come check it all out. We're here to help you get that project going. We love to TEACH FROM THE CUTTING TABLE, so don't be afraid to ask your questions!

Have a great weekend. Hope to see you soon.
