Hi Quilters!

Have you ever seen a pattern and decided you just couldn't live without it?

Well, believe it or not, it happens around here quite often.

Years ago, we used to carry a few of Elisa Wilson's designs (Back Porch Designs), and when her Big Curvy Bag pattern came out, we couldn't live without it!

And while we were perusing her other designs, we decided to pick up her entire line, so this week, you benefit from our lack of willpower! lol

(just today there are still some leftovers from last week's sale..... just sayin'.....)

What's New....

Tips and Humor From Kaye....


I was in the waiting room of my orthopedic surgeon waiting for a checkup after my knee replacement. There was a man waiting to get a cast off his leg. We started to chat and of course we had to find out how each of us had been injured. He said he broke his leg in three places by kicking down the bedroom door.

"Were you trying to get in or get out of the bedroom?" is what I should have asked, but didn't really want to know.

I taught in Denmark shortly after I had my cast removed after breaking my ankle. I was still in a wheelchair some of the time.

Every time I had a question for the clerks at the front desk, they pointed me in the direction of the handicapped conference going on at the same time.

Cast Iron Singers

The original cast iron Singer Sewing Machine was one of the finest machines of any kind ever built. It was virtually indestructible and capable of performing smoothly for decades. The only flaw it had was a pooly designed bobbin. By the early part of the 20th Century, the Singer company feared it had built it's machines TOO well. They were beginning to be passed down to the children and grandchildren of the original owners, still working fine. The company feared they were in danger of saturating the market. So, they designed newer, snazzier, flimsier models with an improved bobbin design and built-in features that were designed to break in a few years. They then instituted a buy-back policy for their original machines. Once the old machines were traded in, they were hauled out to the local dump and smashed with sledgehammers to keep them off the market. That's what it took to destroy a cast iron Singer....Debbie Shinn
