November News

331 6TH AVE SW

NEW HOURS:  Monday-Saturday 10am-5pm
Open later for scheduled classes.


We have relocated to 331 6th Ave SW in Chisholm.  We are halfway between the Iron Man and the water tower right next to Central Liquor and two doors away from Iron Kettle.  Easy to find, easy to park!!!!!!  We are very happy with our "new digs".  Below are some pictures if you haven't had a chance to drop by and see the new shop.  The main word people use when they see it is "cozy"  and "light and bright". 

Stars of the North Quilt, Old Savannah Quilt and Granny Squares Quilt

So now that you have had the grand tour, come in and see all the great new samples we are finishing up.  We're still the same shop, just "cozier"!!!!!

I have some really cute last minute holiday stuff for teacher gifts that you can whip up in no time flat!  There is a pretty Braided Diamond Table runner in fall colors that would be perfect for Thanksgiving and I'm working on a Christmas version now.  The 10-minute table runner is always a hit!  Let me help you pick out some fabrics for the people on your list.  And we have kits for cute kid's throw quilts featuring pink cats and blue puppies!!!  Very fast and easy. 

THE NEEDLERS' CLUB - Doris Smith is going to teach a hand embroidery class starting in January on Friday mornings.  The first project will be Crab-apple Hill pattern "Embroidery Envelope" made from wool.  Complete Kits will be available for the class.  This is a class where you will learn the intricate embroidery stitches that make heirlooms and have fun with other women at the same time.  Doris is a wonderful teacher.  She won't slap you or anything if you make a mistake.  At least not hard.  Ha!  She's the best hand embroiderer I know and a very patient teacher.  The second project will be another Crab-apple Hill pattern called "Winter Sampler".  The hand embroidery will be done in class and if you wish to complete the wall hanging on the pattern we can easily help you do so, but the kit will include your pattern, threads and fabric for the center of quilt embroidery square.  Go to to see these patterns and all the other wonderful patterns they have.  I would imagine that the third project will be chosen by the class and how many times a month you will meet will be decided at the first meeting.  The first meeting will be Friday, January 11, 2013 at 10am.  The cost of the class is $10.00 and the cost of the kit for the embroidery envelope (which will include wools, floss, pattern and beads will be around $35.00.   Call me to sign up, since I have a feeling this will be very popular!
