Yarn of the week: 25% off

I posted a link on our Facebook page to this free pattern by Classic Elite Yarn.  Click here to go to their weekly webletter with downloadable instructions for this pattern.  Make sure you scroll down to the bottom of their letter for more free patterns for quick knitted gifts!

The bottle bag is made of Chesapeake by Classic Elite.  We have a good amount in stock so we decided to put it on sale today through Saturday 12/22 for 25% off!  The colors are beautiful and the wool/cotton blend is just right for our climate.

Stop by soon while we have a good selection of colors, and remember that the Quilt Raffle to benefit Samaritan Ministries ends Friday, December 21!!  Details can be found here.

Have a great week and try to find a little time during the hustle and bustle to take a few stitches!

New Fabric Friday

First up today is Madrona Road. by Michael Miller.  These fabrics are from the line selected by the Modern Quilt Guild for their 2012/2013 Quilt Challenge

 My friend Linda made this cute skirt for her granddaughter from the line.

 We've also gotten in two collections from Moda that coordinate:  Simply Color by V & Co. and Cuzco by Kate Spain

Not to rush the season (according to my friend Patsy Easter is March 31!), but today the UPS man brought us this from Aneela Hoey:

Now it's time to finish up my Christmas projects so that I can get sewing.

Hope you can take time to stitch this weekend!

It only takes a penny...

 Our Penny Campaign for Samaritan Ministries is going well!  Each teacher's jar is filling up. Donations are being accepted through December 21st. Kathleen came in first last year with the most votes.  The other teachers and Jandell, Shirley and Susann are trying to unseat her.  

   However, Kathleen has gone above and beyond by donating the gorgeous quilt pictured here.  We are selling raffle tickets for this quilt through December 21 at 6 p.m.  Tickets are $2 each or 3 for $5 with 100% of all monies going to Samaritan Ministries!  Kathleen hand appliqued this quilt and it is beautifully custom quilted by Rosemary Cushman. 

Stop by the shop now through December 21st to by your raffle tickets and vote for your favorite teacher or helper.  Remember, 100% of all money raised goes to Samaritan Ministries.

See you soon,

December Dream Club

The  Dream Club yarn for December is here!  I'll let Veronica from Dream in Color tell you about it:

This month’s yarn base is one of the highest quality, luxury base yarns that we have ever had created just for us.  "Perfectly Posh" fingering is a buttery soft single ply that has amazing loft and bloom. All of the fibers used in this yarn are top quality, especially the mohair, which is the finest, softest mohair available anywhere. The fiber combination of this yarn is 70% wool, 10% cashmere, 10% silk, 10% kid mohair - 360 yards per 100 gram skein.

The exclusive pattern is a cute shoulder wrap and I'm thinking about cowl patterns...

This one will go fast for both knitters and  gifters (my computer says that gifter is not a word, but that is someone who will buy the knitter yarn for a gift --hope you know one) ! 

 See you SOON!
