celebrating 3 years

This past week wrapped up my week long celebration for Sew Katie Jean and our 3 year anniversary!

The party started off with Pat Fryer from Villa Rosa Designs coming in to do a Trunk Show of all her fabulous and fun quilts.

I took down all the tables in our classroom space, and was able to fit in enough chairs for 20 plus customers. I also hung some of our own favorite Villa Rosa quilts on the wall.  Providing lots of inspiration for when Pat shared her quilts.

Being here in Downtown Lincoln for 3 years has meant the world to me.  When I first opened, it was because of my love for the fabric.  Now, I am still here because of my love for my wonderful customers. You always come first for me!  Thank you for your help in making my fabric shop a place where we can come together for inspiration, sewing, quilting, and friendship!

arrowhead quilt

Thank you ladies who came to our class last Saturday! It was a full class with 8 students.  I just love it when that happens!  Everyone is so busy cutting and sewing, seam ripping and sewing again.

Arrowhead Quilt

Isn't it fun to see how different the fabrics are?  This is my favorite part.  Laying out the blocks and deciding what looks best.

Thanks Mary for teaching! We loved it and can't wait for you to visit again.

This is a whole other story....

visiting teacher

Both of my sisters are coming to visit at the end of the month!  I am crazy excited about it.  We have been luckier than most families who live far apart, since I just saw both Mary and Judith in January.

Judith (middle) turned 50 and we were in Massachusetts for her birthday.
I went cross country skiing for the first time!

Now it's their turn to come home to California.  Our mom is celebrating her 80th birthday with a family reunion.

While they are here visiting, I have asked my sister Mary to teach a quilting class!  So if you sign up early to save your seat, she will teach you how to make the Arrowhead Quilt.

Saturday, July 26
11:00 am - 3:00 pm / $30.

We will have a fun time of sewing, snacks, and a few door prizes!
Sign up and pay for your class - you will receive 10% off your class supplies.
Call (916) 209-3930 or come in to register.

pillowcases for soldiers

Every month we meet in the shop to sew Pillowcases for Soldiers.
And I know many of you love to sew, but don't have the time
to come in and sew with us.
Today, I finally took some time and looked up a video tutorial.
This is a great video from Missouri Star Quilt Co.
If you make a pillowcase for a soldier,
we would love for you to drop it off,
you are also welcome to mail it:
