Pops, Rolls, Cakes and Pack - It ON

Hi everyone!

I sure hope this email works better than last time. I have a new theory on how to send it out., so we'll see....
We've gotten lots of new things in the shop, with lots more to come. We got a new Accuquilt GO! cutter in, that we'll be able to play with and make kits, etc, and if you're interested in purchasing one through the shop, we can order one for you. Looks like lots of fun, and a quick and easy way to cut out your quilt!

We got in more Bali Pops, Jelly Rolls, Layer Cakes and Charm Packs; new patterns and books; odds and ends of new fabrics (batiks, butterflies, music, and others) There are a lot of new notions and goodies coming, too!

Oh, and if you haven't seen them, Willowbend Creations has come up with some awesome precuts! The main fabric is laser cut for you, so if you don't like to cut out those intricate patterns, or you have some reason that it's difficult for you, here's your ticket! These were made for their retail sales, but we were able to get some to sell to our retail customers. Four different patterns available in different fabrics, all you have to do is choose your background and borders to compliment the precut main fabric, and iron it on!

Party with Patrick is October 20th. If you didn't get the last email, Patrick didn't come to Alaska, so we'll have to be content partying without Patrick. I emailed him asking him for a life sized cardboard cutout, or wall poster, and he didn't respond, so maybe he doesn't share our sense of humor (?)

November 7 is a fun new class taught by Judy Thomson. It's a quilt as you go class, so when you're done, you're done!! You have to see it to understand it, I guess, so come in and check out the sample. We'll have the patterns in soon, and it is beginner-friendly.

I think that's all the classes we have scheduled for now, October is pretty busy with the FMKQ guild craft day (Amish wallhangings and hand quilting by Lonnie) and the guild retreat in the middle of the month.

So come in and enjoy our fun fabrics, etc. Remember we are open until 9:00 on Friday nights, and you're welcome to come and join us for sewing Friday nights, too, for just $5.
As always, if you'd like to be removed from the list, just send us an email and let us know.

Thanks, and happy quilting!
Maribeth and Jackie

P.S. Did you know we just had our 6th anniversary? Wow! Time flies when you're having fun!
