Hello Quilters and Crafters,

I love snow. I know most people don’t like to drive and all that. But I still love the snow. Maybe because it makes people slow down. At any rate It’s peaceful. We have a fun filled year planned. A Redwork Club will start meeting in January. I’ll be hosting a Machine Embroidery Club. We’ll have a basic Serger class. We’re ready to teach you to use and then rent our longarm quilting machine.

After Christmas Sale!
In conjunction with Country Crafters our after Christmas Sale starts Friday December 26. 50% off all Christmas fabric and patterns, 25% off everything else.
