What's New?

We have all kinds of things going on! The fall yarn shipments we ordered in June are starting to trickle in, and already we have our Christmas fabrics! (We ordered those in February!) We have all kinds of nifty stuff to show you, so here's a little tour....

Let's start with our newest thing--beads!

We have an assortment of size 6 (for knitting and quilting embellishment) and size 11 (for quilting embellishment). Plus we have Swarovski crystals in both sew-on and iron-on styles--you pick! We're going to be getting more styles and colors in as the summer goes on, so keep checking back as we expand our selection. We're thrilled with the quality and beauty of the Japanese beads we've selected! Also, we're going to be offering knitting and quilting with bead classes this fall, so look for those in your fall newsletter, coming out at the end of August.

Let the tour continue with some of our new yarns. We're in the middle of replenishing sock yarns, and we have new colors of Mountain Colors Bearfoot:

We also have new colors of Step (this sock yarn has Aloe in it for extra comfort). We have a new cotton yarn from Skacel called Sockina, which is self-striping and very comfortable! Coming soon: Trekking natural, and Cherry Tree Hill hand-dyed.

Along with the Christmas fabrics, we have a new collection from Benartex called Winsome. It is soft and pretty, and great for either baby quilts (the coordinates are beautiful with our Beatrix Potter fabric) or for grown-ups. Be sure to see the darling quilt Kim is making up from these!

We continue to love our Emperor II fabrics from Kona Bay. Only 1,000 shops in the country stock them, and we're one of them!

And we're getting a lot of new patterns in. We're loving our new tablerunners! Cynthia made this one, called Waffle Time:

And Kim made this one (which would also double as a wall hanging), called Kabuki:

We love the tabs on the outside--so interesting!

And guess what? We also have a wonderful, new air conditioner. At the moment, it is our most favorite new thing of all! So come in to our nice, cool store, and enjoy all our new things!
