Maple Leaf Festival is this weekend.  As you travel to and from Baldwin City, stop and shop with us.  Fabric will be on sale, 20% off.  We will be open Saturday, October 15 from 10-5 and Sunday from 1-5.  Hope you take advantage of this special Sunday opening, as we don't have too many of those.

Jane Anderson is teaching an Umbrella Class on October 22, beginning at 10:30.  Bring in an ugly umbrella and leave with a spiffy new, in-style umbrella.  Hope we see you soon!

Well, as usual, it's been a long time since I've blogged. I've been busy going to shows and keeping up with my family.

Jane and I just got back from the AQS show in Des Moines, IA. We had a great time talking to all the quilters in our booth. The three-pocket purses continue to be the biggest hit of all the things we demo. If you haven't gotten yours yet, you are missing out. They make great secret pal and Christmas gifts.

Next in the best seller category were the Pilot Frixion Pens. These pens have a very fine point and the ink disappears with friction or heat. Great for tracing embroidery designs, as the ink disappears when you iron your finished project.

We've begun making plans for next year's $5 quilt block of the month. We will have it on the website soon. The kits will be cut in 5" squares from earthtone batiks. We will be using the pattern, "Five-Square Fanfare" and featuring the "Charming 5 Square" templates. There are six different templates. Be sure and sign up for the email mailing list so you won't miss out on information.

Maple Leaf Festival is October 15-16, so keep an eye on the website for special information coming soon!

Hope you had a great summer!
