Fabric and Kits and Quilts, Oh My!

Thanks to all who attended and helped make the 2013 Pumpkin Patch Shop Hop a fun event! We had a great time and hope you did too!

An event at Guildcrafters means we pull out all the stops to bring you new quilts to enjoy. Here are the highlights of what’s new at our store.

First, we have the entire Acacia collection from Tula Pink.

Next is the lovely Barcelona from Zen Chic for Moda Fabrics (we have yardage of many prints and charm packs).

We’ve been having a blast with a fun little book on potholders! Think of the gifts you can mark off your list! We currently have kits for the apron and the tree. We’ll have snowman kits shortly.
