Snow days are Quilting Days

Feb 10, 2014

While the rest of the world is complaining about the snow we have a great opportunity to quilt and watch the world become a scene from Dr. Zhivago. If you are hand quilting you have the extra advantage of using your quilt while working on it.

FedEx and UPS have been very busy delivering new fabrics. If you are attending the shows in Hampton, Virginia, or Somerset, New Jersey know that our booth will once again be overflowing. We always seem to take too much.

Punxsutawney Phil has told us there will be six more weeks of winter but that means spring will be here in a month and a half. We are prepared with some really pretty florals. The youngest junior partner is now president of Penn State Sailing Club (How did that happen she never sailed until her Freshman year?) So there is a selection of sailing related fabrics on our Fabrics-sports page.

The store is still in 'organization' stage but it is open, if the snow didn't prevent you from visiting, but be aware the furnishings are still in the moving van so fabric is everywhere. If you want to be sure we are there call 610-730-5622.

We found this logic and have problem and have added some of our newest fabrics and patterns to the clues. For a 10% off coupon send us your answers. Have Fun and Good Luck.
