Memorial Day Weekend

Come for the Quilt Show and stay for the shopping.
Hill Country Quilt Show May 26th - 28th
  Memorial Day weekend is the start of summer.  No matter what your plans, make time to visit the Hill Country Quilt Show.  This biennial show gives everyone the chance to view beautiful quilts and be inspired by talented quilters.  
  If you have been before, this year there is a new location.  It is the Hill Country Youth Event Center at 3785 Hwy 27, Kerrville, Tx. It is only about a mile from our shop.  From the shop, you will take Main Street that turns into Hwy 27.  It's a straight shot past Schreiner University (previous home of the show), past the VA Hospital and then on your right you will see the Event Center.  In years past, the Texas State Arts and Crafts Fair was held on these grounds.  
   If you are coming from San Antonio, take the Comfort exit off I-10 and follow Hwy 27 about 18 miles and you will see the Event Center on your left.  After the show, we hope you will continue on Hwy 27 to our shop.  
  The hours of the show are Fri. & Sat. 9 - 5 and Sunday 12 - 4.
  We will be open our normal hours (Fri. & Sat 9:30 - 5:30 and Sunday 12:30 - 4pm).  We will be closed on Monday, the 29th in observance of Memorial Day. 
            We are Rayon Rich!!!

              Lots of new bolts of Bali Rayon are in stock now.

    If you enjoy sewing garments and have been to our shop, you have seen all our models using Bali Rayon.  We LOVE this fabric.  It has a great drape and you can put it thru the washing machine AND the dryer.  
    Rayon batik isn't always available and sometimes our selection is a bit limited, but not now!  We have just received two shipments that we have been waiting for.  
   If you have purchased batik rayons from us in the shop, you know what great quality they are.  Hope you can come in and see them, but if not, check out this link   Bali Rayons.  

            Suburban Skies Quilt Kit
   We are excited about our newest quilt kit.  Suburban Skies uses a pattern by Abbey Lane and we combined the background fabric from Urban Artifacts with Grunge from Moda to create our kit.
   The kit includes all the fabrics, pattern, and binding to complete the quilt top.  It finishes approximately 60" x 72". 
  You can order your kit at Suburban Skies .  If you have your own special fabric, you can also get just the pattern at the same link.

Karen Stone will be at The Main House
June 4th - 7th

   Karen Stone combines colors and fabrics like no one else in our industry. We have been so blessed that she has taught for us many times at The Main House.
  Karen has a variety of great techniques she shares as well as how to work with unusual fabrics in a project.  This year will be no exception.  She has created a quilt for us to work on that features many of her techniques. Karen's flexibility will allow you to work on any of her quilts, just try her techniques, or work on an unfinished project from any of her quilts.  It's a wonderful relaxed atmosphere of creativity.  With unlimited sewing time, you will be able to work at your own pace.
  If you are eager to work with color, and fabrics, then this is the class for you.  The quilts pictured belong to Karen. You will have the chance to see these and many more during the class. The quilt she has planned for this retreat is "Wonderful World" and you can see it on the registration page.  Remember, you can work on any of her quilts if you prefer.
  This 3 1/2 day retreat is $595.00 and includes 3 nights stay at The Main House, 9 meals, and the class with Karen. We would also love to have you as a day student which includes all the meals and the class for $445.00.
   You can register for this retreat on line at  Karen Stone  .  You can also give us a call at 830-896-8088, and ask for Julie.  We will be glad to register you on the phone.
Hope you will come for a visit
  We continually get new merchandise, move, tweek, adjust, and try to improve our shop for your inspiration.  We hope you will be able to come and spend some time with us. 
We look forward to seeing you in the shop, or visit us on line. We appreciate your support over our 39 years in business.  Thank you.
