New Fabric, Patterns and a New Guest Blogger!

Hello everyone! It’s looking like it’s going to be a nice weather weekend with temperatures in the mid 80’s to low 90’s and sunshine. A good time to get out for a little while, stop by the shop and see what’s new, then spend some afternoon time with the windows open sewing away. We received some new patterns this week – Buggy Barn, Take Five (which we kitted), and several other patterns.

These two patterns, Miss Rosie’s Quilt Co. “Raise the Roof” and The Pattern Basket “Butterscotch Pie” are great for creating depth using light and dark fabrics.

Since we are celebrating Christmas in July we fell in love with this small wall hanging or table cover “First Snow” quilt using applique snowflake and tree branch patterns. Love the use of the turquoise, blues and browns in the sample photo. And since we are talking Christmas, which leads to thoughts of gift making, we received a gift ourselves this week, that actually is a gift to you. Many of you may know this face…

Angela Walters is fast becoming one of the premier Modern Quilt quilter’s in the industry. Well, Angela has heard about the new Virginia Beach Modern Quilt Guild and will be a guest blogger for What’s Your Stitch ‘n Stuff on Mondays – starting Monday, July 23. We’ll learn together some of the tips to making the quilting a feature in your quilts and get to see up close what’s happening in Angela’s studio. Right now she has a new book in the works…

“In The Studio” with Angela Walters is due out this November and we are excited to have Angela with us. If you would like to learn more, you can visit Angela’s blog at

New Kona solids are on the way, as is some new Hoffman and a few other surprises. We’ll certainly share with you here on the Heidi-Idy’s Happenings Blog and on the WYSNS Facebook page. We hope the weatherman is right and the temperatures stay cool and the sun shines all weekend. Come by and say hello and remember – we LOVE show and tell!

Happy weekend –



  1. I am just getting into sewing and quilting and want to learn free motion quilting. Looks like great books.
