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!
