Back From Quilt Market...

We're all back from Quilt Market now, even Beth, who of course brought pictures of beautiful baby Brooke.

And I must say... Market was everything that I'd hoped it would be, and more. All the fabric manufacturers were there, plus pattern companies, with all their samples. In addition, there was a wonderful art quilt display. My favorite quilt was a huge decorative dahlia in peach with white petal tips. It looked so dimensional that I was SURE it was 3-D.

Anyway... we have some exciting new collections coming. I'll post them here, as they are added to our website. The first group of fabrics we've added is "Bear Meadow" by South Sea Imports, a superb new nature/wildlife group. Check out our "arriving soon" page, or type "Bear Meadow" into the search box at

Happy sewing!

Becoming a Grandmother at Quilt Market?

Beth, Ginny, and I attended our first Quilt Market this weekend (in Pittsburgh). While it was a wonderful experience for all, it was particularly wonderful for Beth, because she had to leave early. But wait, it was for a good cause! Beth's daughter Laura phoned to say that she had just gone to the hospital to have her baby. So Beth was able to stay at Market for about four hours, while her husband drive down from Buffalo to pick her up, and then head on to Columbus Ohio to the hospital. She phoned us later to say that Brooke Elizabeth made her entrance into the world around 5 pm, at 8 pounds 9 ounces. Both mother and baby are doing well, as is the first-time grandmother!
