Fabric Designer Barb Eikmeier at FAB!

Quilter, author, and fabric designer Barbara Eikmeier gave a mini trunk show in our shop July 14. This special presentation showcased some of her quilts, projects and her new fabric line which is coming in this fall--a wonderful line of fabric, made entirely in America. We will be carrying the entire line, plus Barb's gorgeous "Vintage Sampler" BOM pattern.  


Thank you to all who attended. It was great to see you, and especially wonderful to have you share our enthusiasm for Barb's work. We had a wonderful morning!  We still have room in our "Vintage Sampler" BOM class. If you wanted Barb's book, Back Basting Appliqué, Step by Step, we have a few copies left--signed by Barb!

Row by Row 2015

Are you participating in Row by Row this year?  Stop by our shop to get your free Row by Row pattern, "In the Water with FRIENDS." We also have the kits available and our special license plate: QUILT WTH FRNDS.  


It's Summer Time--Go GREEN

Are you looking for a fun and speedy summer project? Our colorful DENIM and our "farmer's market" fabric make great bags--durable, washable, reusable, and GREEN!  Sew a few quick seams and you will have your own summer bag for the beach, tennis court, market, or just about anywhere!  Smaller versions make adorable bags for giving away produce from your own garden.
