Spring is coming! No, really! Someday (hopefully very) soon, it will be warmish and the flowers will be blooming and the bees and butterflies and other bugs will be busy! We’re ready now and have a fresh new display all around our new Bugapalooza quilt. It is sure to be a project to cheer you through the remaining grey days of early spring. We have the quilt kitted (it is approximately 67″ x 77″, $68 and includes all fabrics including the binding and the pattern). We also have bug jar pillow case kits, a small pillow kit and a table runner kit. So cheerful!!

We hope you’ll stop in soon and see Bugapalooza in person!

Pattern Re-print
We are currently having the quilt patterns re-printed for those of you who signed up to receive them after stores ran out. We’ve cross-checked and double-checked and made sure we have what everyone needs from each of the stores. As soon as the patterns are ready, they will be available at the store NEAREST you (which may not be the store you signed up at). If you’re on the list, you’ll get a phone call that the patterns are in. We’ll do our very best to make sure you get all the patterns to complete your set.
