New Fabrics & New Quilts & Kits on the Way!

We have some brand-new “shot” cottons in the store. These are Peppered Cottons designed by Pepper Cory for Studio E. These are gorgeous and sturdy and we love them! We  think you will too! We have them in brilliant colors and fabulous neutrals.


We also have new quilts and kits on the way! We’re a vendor at the Brighton Casual Quilters show on Saturday, August 3, so some of these quilts will be going to the show.

This is one of our favorites — it uses one of our 13 fat quarter packs for $39. If you know anyone into bikes or biking, this is the perfect quilt!

Hot Summer Arrivals

It is SWELTERING outside but cool in the store. Today we received tiny gingham, dots, and stripes in hot summer colors. Great to use on their own or to mix with other fabrics. In addition, a fun Christmas group to cool you down. Come and check it out for a refreshing break.
