What’s New? Lots of New Things at Guildcrafters!

We’re not letting the blazing summer heat get us down! We’re still thinking about quilts and fabric and new projects. OH MY! In addition to a fresh and pretty new look inside the store (YOU REALLY NEED TO COME IN AND CHECK OUT WHAT WE’VE DONE TO THE PLACE!), we’re adding new kits and fabrics all the time. Here are some of the latest.

Here are a couple of lovely new quilts that we are kitting up –– still waiting on patterns but we were so excited that we had to share them now!
