I am working on finding what customers really want and need from a small quilt shop in a touristy town. I am finding many kits, many fat quarters, and pre-cut yards and half yards are going well.
We also have pillows, candles, wooden signs ( original and never the same ) , old shutters, pin cushions, tea bag holders for your purse, small quilt kits, and so much more AND Warm and Natural batting... whoo hoo. It is my favorite.
And I can't wait for July when Moda has an absolutely awesome flannel grouping coming out with bears, moose, cabins, and all the woodsy feel of Brown County. It will make the perfect quilting gifts for Christmas.
Until then we have some Thimbleberries Christmas and some Marcus Brothers wonderful fall prints. Check back often to see what else we are doing for others. This is our goal.
- to sew and donate padded fabric mats for cat and dog cages for the local animal shelter.
- to create a group of volunteers to make quilts for kids ( we are part of a group in Lafayette the will donate them to Payton Manning Children's Hospital.
- to make and donate pillowcases to hospitals, nursing homes, and the homeless shelters as part of America Patchwork and quilting's One Million Pillowcase project.
Until next time.... happy sewing and quilting and Happy Spring.
