Brown Bear, Brown Bear ... just arrived!

We've just received the three feature prints from Andover's new "Brown Bear, Brown Bear" collection! These feature artwork from the beloved children's book by the same name. There is a panel of squares, an animal toss, and a print with childrens faces. We will have them up on the website in a day or so. Till then, here is a picture of the panel:

Around each square are the words "What do you see?" You could use the panel whole, or cut the blocks apart to incorporate them into a larger quilt. What fun!

Something Old, Something New...

It's a new year... and so we've resolved to shake off our mid-winter lethargy and try something new... a blog!

Our hope is that it will be a way for us to connect with you, our customers, and find out what it is that you would like from us. We hope to get your input, so please DO comment on our posts!

With all the wonderful fabrics that are out there on the market, we have a really hard time making up our minds about what to buy. (Oh, yes, we know you have the same problem too...)

So from time to time we will toss up a post about our fabric dilemmas and ask your help in choosing. We'll also post when new fabric collections have been ordered, so that you can get a "sneak peek", which hopefully will be helpful to you, as you plan your future projects.

For today, for starters... pop in with your comments and just say "hello"!

Happy sewing,
