Small Town Quilt Retreat






I have been talking about this retreat for months and it's finally here.  My sewing room is stacked high with kits, hand-dyed wool, needles, patterns and absolutely wonderful threads.  

Tomorrow I check my list, and get it all packed to set up on Wednesday. Perhaps some of you can identify with me - I've got all my sewing supplies ready but haven't thought about my wardrobe.  Oh well, you want to see my stitches, not my clothes!  

There are new friends and old registered for my class and I'm excited to spend an entire day stitching.  On Friday and Saturday I will be in my booth so if you are attending the retreat please stop in to say "hi".

Dove In Bloom - A New Project

 Spring Quilt Market was sensory overload with threads, fabric, patterns, gadgets, etc.  I was excited to see that Yazzii bag was there and I hurried over to their booth.  This small bag was just what I was looking for.  When zipped closed it is 6" wide, 5" high and about 2 1/2" deep.

I designed the Dove In Bloom cover in hand-dyed wool and velvet embellished with silk and cotton threads.  When the applique and embroidery are complete it is whip-stitched to the bag for the sweetest ever sewing kit.


Inside are 6 zippered pockets with see-through plastic inside so you don't have to hunt to find just what you need.  I've been working on some small blocks which fit perfectly along with threads and notions.  Just grab it and go.

$40.00 Kit
Includes bag, hand-dyed wool and threads.
I'm expecting my shipment of bags soon and will let you know when the kits are available.
