50 Shades of Grey
Stop by and check out latest window display:  50 Shades of Grey.  Sue has whipped up a sample using the hot new grey fabric line: Grey Skies.

Winter Classes Continue
Quite a winter we are having but our Winter Classes are trooping along.  Still to come are: Log Cabin Bead, Corner Pop, Star Rubies, Battlefield and Northern Neighbors.  For more information about these classes, please call Country Treasures at 802-875-4377 or navigate to our home page at and click on the links near the bottom of the page to find the Winter Newsletter and photos of the class projects on our blog.

100 Modern Blocks
Carolyn’s 100 Modern Blocks class is progressing by leaps and bounds.  Here are a few photos from the most recent class including two quilts by guests Norma and Jim.  Yet another example of how Tula Pink’s modern blocks take on new life when pieced in different fabrics. 

New Fabric Lines
Despite the weather UPS and Fedex are managing to deliver new fabric to Country Treasures.  Recent arrivals include: Bluebell from Windham Fabrics, Claras Garden from Moda, Symphony Rose from Red Rooster, Island Breeze from P&B Textiles, and two lines from Judy Rothermel: Judy’s Album Quilt and the latest Aunt Grace line.  We also have the updated edition of Judy’s book Reproduction Quilts from the civil War Period which features a quilt made using the fabric line Judy’s Album Quilt on the cover.
