Hi Quilters!

Well, apparantly Mother Nature isn't done with her Winter Splendidness. As I sit here writing this newsletter, I'm looking out the window at the latest 8" of snow she's blessed us with. And it's still coming down. While I'm the first one to love the snow, this time of year seems all it's good for is to hide the mud and dirty, dingy snow piles that haven't melted yet.

Spring is right around the corner... or is she?

Trees With Ease!

Watch as Kaye demonstrates her techniques!

Combine all your favorite similar color fabrics from your scraps or fat quarters to create this stunning quilt! Separate your dark, medium and lights for greater effect. The darker fabrics become the upright trees, the lighter fabric becomes the background or upside down trees. Easy to sew with no seams to match. Uses the Starmaker 6 tool (sold separately).

Sizes: Placemats, Wallhanging, Small and Large Quilts

Just For Fun....

We were having a little staff meeting today and we decided that it would be a lot of fun to offer all of our customers something to look forward to and ways to save on their purchases. So for a little fun, we are including a little surprise coupon with your order. The prizes have already been designated according to order numbers, and staff members will be stuffing little coupons into every order they fill. There are 25 "winning" coupons per every 100 orders, so you have a 1 in 4 chance of having something arrive that will help out with your next order. It may be a coupon for free shipping, a percentage off (10%, 15%, or 25%), free patterns, etc. Coupons can be redeemed on any order over $25 (Pre-shipping). The coupons will be in with your order, along with instructions for their redemption. We hope it this will be fun for you.

Reader's Hints, Tips and Techniques....

Valerie says: Starch, starch, starch baby. I wash fabrics after purchase due to my skin reaction to the sizing and starching the fabrics helps match points, finger pressed seams, avoiding tucks in backing and the overall dimensional stability of the block.

Rita says: One of the things I like to do is whenever I see something that I'd like to try, but don't have the time for just at the moment, or if I come across a very cool trick in a magazine I bought, or I took a class and REALLY enjoyed it, I will scan the pages on my color scanner, insert those printed out pages into some plastic page protectors and put them in a binder. I have been doing this for over 5 yrs now and I have 2 full binders of things I absolutely love so I can flip through them any time I want for some feel good reading and inspiration. I find this to be a real pick-me-up when I'm feeling a little blah in these dreary January days...
