Finish line


That was a crazy last three weeks.

Between the Quilt Show, the in-store clearance sale and the online clearance sale and the craziness that is August in Maine I am wiped out.

Bert, Ollie and I wanted to wish you all a happy end of summer and hope you take some time to enjoy it all, even if things are a bit hectic.

I'll be back soon!

Online Midsummer Clearance Sale has begun!

The fabric store at the end of the rainbow!

Head over to all online orders 20% off through tomorrow, Sunday August 11th.  Sale ends at midnight EST.  Discount does not apply to shipping charges and won't show up in your final order or confirmation e-mail, but we will manually change the price on our end, you can count on that!

If you're local you can place your order online and leave us a note saying you'd like to pick your fabric up in person... we'll give you a call when your order is ready.

Have fun, dearies!

Heard and seen at Maine Quilts 2013

I feel like a gossip columnist! 

I snapped a very few photos at Maine Quilts this year: nothing that will get me sued, I hope. 

Of particular interest was this lovely Tidal Tote handbag made with a Tula Pink "Saltwater" print, paired with batiks, made by a customer of ours.

 I also loved this straw handbag embellished with fabric strips.  Got my wheels turnin'.

On the fashion front, we have Miss MaryBeth in theWashi Dress she made in my class.

She's rockin' this look and literally left a trail of inspired onlookers in her wake, whom she promptly sent to our booth to purchase the pattern.

Thanks, MaryBeth... I'll give you your commission later!

And we wanted to make a "splash" with our booth this year, so we brought some vintage garden fixtures including a little free standing fountain.



It was also Bert's first Quilt Show.
He was our best helper at set-up time, but Baba had the best job of all, don't you think?
