We had our Fall Open House party this past Saturday, which is always a fun day for us.  Thank you to all who came in!

If you couldn't make it, we wanted to share some of our projects and photos of the samples we made with you, to give you ideas for the fall and for the holidays. 

Is it a Table Topper, a Table Runner, or a Placemat?   YES!
We had so much fun with these...   Create pumpkins or cups of your favorite hot beverage..   Make one and it's a placemat.   Sew 4 together in a line, it's a runner.   Sew 4 together in a 'circle' and it's a table topper.  Options for decorating included as templates.

We made this Folded Star Table Topper in beautiful metallic cotton prints featuring winter birds.   Kit includes fabrics for front and back, plus instructions.  Measures 26" across at farthest points.   
We were smitten by the fabric line, "Snow Delightful", so we made placemats using our "Pick Your Placemat" pattern.   One pattern creates 4 types of placemats.   Shown below, right, is the Silverware Pocket/ Bound version.  They sew up quick enough that you'll want them for each season.  They make great gifts.

We also made a 10-Minute Table Runner featuring Snow Delightful.
Pattern is free in-store with fabric purchase to make project.
Who can resist critters with knit hats? 
Another very popular project in our shop is the "Gemini" table runner kit from Doug Leko's "Winterlude" book.   We made the kit, featuring "Forever Green" fabrics by Holly Taylor for Moda Fabrics.    Also makes a great wall hanging.

It's Fall Y'All is an easy fusible applique 

Here in Maine, we love moose.  The Topsy Turvy Moose is such a cute table runner..  Makes a nice wall hanging too.    Great way to use your scraps!
