Sewin’ Saturday

It’s quiet now, but that will change in the morning as Lisa Burgess hosts yet another wonderful “WTF” from 12 noon to midnight. Just what is a “WTF?” Well, it stands for ‘What the food?’ and our Lisa is not just an excellent quilter, her culinary skills are great, too. Lisa provides lunch for the marathon sewing day and the participants settle in with a smile on their face and happy tummy. They also love visitors. So stop by and see what they are working on and pick up a few tips at the same time.

The weather is starting to cool down a bit and usher in the holidays. Halloween is just around the corner and we received some new fabric for you to treat yourself to.

Northcotts “Trick or Treat” by Diane Arthur is so cute. Not only would this make a sweet tablerunner or Spiderweb quilt, you could also work up a 10 minute tablerunner into a purse that would work as a child’s trick or treat bag for the evening!

Then again, your weekend treat could be in the form of these luscious Batavian Batiks. The photo does not do justice to how beautiful these batiks truly are. And since we are talking Halloween – look at our friend Kathy Bucher’s Spiderweb quilt.

Kathy used up a reproduction fat quarter bundle she had and we all fell in love with how this turned out. Here’s a close up of one of the blocks.

Enjoy the weekend and if you get a few minutes stop by the shop, say hello, take a look at the new fabric and bring in a project you are working on so we can all see. Remember, we LOVE show and tell.
