On Sale This Week....
We're featuring one of Kaye's beloved View & Do Shapes - The Circles, and....all of the books and patterns using this shape.

Regularly priced at $19.95, this week, Kaye's Circle Shape is only $12.00.

Kaye's View & Do Circle Shape featured 4 removable templates that nest together to make this a must have tool for your sewing/craft room. Made of hard plastic suitable for rotary cutting, you can make 2, 4, 6, or 8 inch circle shapes. Great for sewing, quilting, scrapbooking or any craft.

And now, with a brand new pattern using the View & Do Circle, life gets even better.

All of the books and patterns using Kaye's Circle Shape are half off!

Roman Fountains

Imagine looking down into a formal Roman Garden with its hedges, tile floors, and its center fountain. The circles are layered on top of a background square, cut in square quarters and triangle quarters. The raw edge circles are appliqued with decorative stitches.


Imagine yourself lost in a flower garden surrounded by the riots of smells and colors from every flower imaginable. This is what this pattern will evoke as you sew it up.

Pond Lilies

Many different scrap fabrics were used in this quilt made from circles. Mix and match colors as three circles are layered on each background square creating the unique rippled 3-D look. Kaye Wood has created a technique for this design which eliminates curved piecing, so it is now easy enough for beginners.

Drunkard's Path

This traditional design is made even easier with appliqued circles for no curved piecing. Simple enough for a beginner, challenging enough for the more advanced.

Circles Made Simple

These fun quilts and wallhangings begin with layered circles on top of a square. And, they are all easy enough for a beginner

Don't forget we have 2 pages of sale items, clearance markdowns, seasonal discounts and HURT items.

Tips From Our Readers....

Try to sew everyday even if its 15 minutes and have a goal in mind.....and before you know it you have plenty of quilts made.

This sounds silly and I am a beginning quilter but I lay out my entire quilt and then number my pieces using fabric chalk--that way when I start up again after 3 months I'm not lost---even though my fabric has been moved a dozen times. Once my daughter borrowed a few small squares to make doll clothes not knowing they were cut for a quilt--I wasn't numbered--didn't realize until it was too late and I had to undo several days worth of work....Darcy

Quilting For Charity....

    Do you have unwanted fabrics or UFO's or PIGS? You can help supply quilts for the opening of the VA Hospital in Las Vegas. They need 300 quilts by the hospital opening.
    As a special outreach of Quilts 4 Cancer, this group is making quilts for the opening of the new VA hospital. They are all volunteer with no sponsors. They need quilts 50"x 70" or larger and are looking for lots of Military and Red, White and Blue but will take ANYTHING in a quilt, top or blocks. They have many volunteers that can sew up your "UFO's" and "PIGS" as well as use up any unwanted fabrics.
    If anyone wants to donate money (tax deductible), make the checks payable to Q4C and mail to P.O. Box 4702, Pahrump, NV 89041. More information about this event and for mailing supplies can be found on the Quilts 4 Cancer website.
    I hope that you are able to help with this worthy cause for our veterans.

I think that's all for this week!

Have a great week, stay warm if you're in the northern hemisphere....
