TO MAY AND BEYOND

Quilt Market was in Salt Lake City Utah this Spring. Sue even took some time to watch and listen to an organ recital at the Mormon Temple.
We are getting new things in every day.  Saturday we received 10 new patterns from the Ribbon Candy Quilt Company. Check out their blog. ribboncandyquilts.blogspot.com


Yesterday we got a beautiful line from Henry Glass called Botanica with big beautiful hydrangeas. Go to www.henryglassfabrics.com
Today so far, a brand new product called Retro Clean. “One Soak and It’s History” A great way to wash your quilts!
We also have the latest 17” square rotating cutting mat. Perfect for class and traveling.
May 31st. Where were we? We are getting new books and patterns in everyday. Two big boxes from Deb Tucker including her new LeMoyne Star template.
Wilmington’s Fall Colors is in. We are kitting up a beautiful quilt.   Till next time   Sue and Staff
