Hints of Fall

Hello Quilters:

This week we heard the first news reports of Fall color on Vermont Route 100.  It’s hard to believe the Chester Fall Festival is only three weeks away.  If you haven’t seen the gallery of Fall class projects please check the blog postings at  Fall classes start in less than two weeks!

Bargello Class
We posted a photo of the wrong project for the Bargello class to be held on October 5.  Here is the correct project. 
Fabric Just In
New Fabric received includes the too-who cute to believe You Who from Henry Glass, Noah’s Jungle from Northcott, and Lakeside Retreat and Mini-Cabin Series flannels and the glittery Eden, all from Timeless Treasures.

New Kits
We are currently making up kits with Eden and also Hampton Ridge, a BOM kit from Marcus Fabrics.

New Books
Our staff suggests you check out these new books: Cindy Lammon’s “Simply Modern Christmas” and “Set the Table—11 Designer Patterns for Table Runners,” both from That Patchwork Place.

$10 Rebate on any Martingale/Patchwork Place Book
Martingale has announced a $10 rebate on any Martingale/That Patchwork Place book.  Simply purchase any Martingale book of your choice and pick up a copy of the rebate coupon.  Mail the coupon to Martingale with your shop receipt.  How simple is that?  This rebate program runs from September 1 through December 31, 2013.

Retreats at Vermont Quilt Design
Our friend Vermont Quilt Design is leading two quilt retreats next year.  “Bring a Beginner” will be held at the Brandon Inn in Brandon, Vermont on February 7 – 9, 2014.  “Quilting in Vermont” will be held at the Strong House Inn in Vergennes, Vermont on May 2 – 4, 2014.  For more information, please go to or send Kay and Allison an email at or call them at (802) 236-4562.
