Fresh Lilacs

These two bolts arrived reminding us that spring is just around the corner. One bolt features little tossed lilacs while the other is actually a swooping stripe. We thought these would make wonderful table runners or whatever else you can come up with.

ArchiTEXTures & Postcards

architexturespostcardsHolly loves anything with words – she doesn’t know why, but she does. Two of these bolts feature ledgers – those books that have somewhat been forgotten because of computers.

The other bolts feature words – oodles and oodles of text. And lastly, etchings of buildings – with what? MORE TEXT!

50+ New Colors

new-thread-caseA newly expanded thread case arrived. One of the thread companies we carry added 50+ new colors!

Poor Liz had to look at all those very teeny-tiny little numbers putting the spools in the right place.

Doesn’t the new one look so pretty.
(Thank you Liz!)

Milk Cow Dust Bunnies

Jennifer Rilea and her mom attended Selby’s Dust Bunnies class a couple of months ago, and here is her quilt, already completed! Thanks for sharing Jennifer, hope to see you soon!image2

Local Quilt Shop Day – Saturday, January 24

local-quilt-shop-daySaturday is Local Quilt Shop day. Why not come to San Juan Bautista and stop by the quilt shop.

If fabric alone isn’t enticing enough (we’re not sure how that’s possible) there are lots of yummy restaurants for lunch and if you take a stroll around town the lunch calories don’t count!

Mention you saw our Local Quilt Shop day blog or Facebook post and receive 15% off Saturday, January 24th’s fabric purchase!! Wahoo!!

Guild Class with Debbie Maddy

debbiemaddy-students

Today at the shop we had a full house!  The Pinnacle Quilt Guild used our classroom to host designer, teacher, founder of Calico Carriage Quilt Designs and 2013 Nominee for Teacher of the Year by the International Association of Quilting Professionals – Debbie Maddy.

Debbie gave demos and tips all along the way. And with her “no y-seams” technique everyone had a grand time.
