Greetings!

When I picked my machine up to take it for service several years ago, I found three Clover seam rippers underneath. I love these seam rippers - they are very sharp, long enough to hold comfortably in my hand, and reasonably priced. Of course, if there were three underneath, you realize I own four… While cleaning my sewing space for some Zoom meetings, I found two seam rippers and put them in the drawer where they belong. I went right to the machine to find the other two, but hard to believe, they weren’t underneath... This morning I went to get a basket from the pile of beautiful ones I have on a table in our gameroom. I lifted the basket and found a seam ripper under it! I was in a different room, on a different floor - I am now convinced there are sewing room gremlins! If they would only lead me to the one that remains missing!

Wishing you a week where everything is exactly where it is supposed to be!
See you soon,
Mary Beth
This Saturday, February 27th, you will find packets for our pieced Sampler Sampler, and Simple Whatnots Club ready for pickup. Both programs offer the chance to work on your piecing skills, while making wonderful projects. The 78” x 96” Saturday Sampler, Bright Hopes, offered in two colorways, features twenty pieced blocks and a pieced border. The Simple Whatnots Club shares Kim Diehl patterns for eight petite quilts, the option to create a larger sampler, and a surprise project during the summer (with the option to request kits for the projects). Each program has begun, but because we now do them in this new format you can still join and easily catch up!
A new issue of Block magazine arrived today. This one is packed with patterns and stories! It begins with a short feature - Modern Masters of Quilting: The Gee’s Bend Quilters. If you have never seen the work of these talented quilters from an isolated town in Alabama, this will be a great introduction to their work. From there you move to all the other stories and patterns offered in this issue. The patterns make use of different pre-cuts and different construction techniques. I’m going to start on the “Hourglass Wreath Quilt” as soon as I finish reading all the articles and stories - yes, every one! Magazine $7.99
Nineteen prints from the new Aerial collection arrived on Monday. To quote fabric designer Tamara Kate, this new group features, “Simple things that delight!”. Those little things include butterflies, moths, leafy sprigs, and dots in a range of colors - from plum, to pink, orange, gold, gray, and green. I’ve seen pictures of these pieces used in quilts of different sizes and styles - I can’t wait to cut into them! 
$11.80 per yard
I can’t believe they arrived in time - Shamrock fabrics are here! We have two whimsical shamrock prints featuring a wide range of greens - one with a white background, the other with black. They will look great in small or large projects, and even would make fun face masks. Our “Luck of the Irish” fat quarter stack includes several solids, and a tone-on-tone print that are perfect with the shamrocks! 
$11.50 per yard
I want to say a huge thank you to those in our first virtual Sew Along! I so enjoyed being with everyone, even though it was via Zoom. I can’t wait to see your versions of Deb Heatherly’s Cherokee Star! I brought in my small scale version of the quilt - still working on the full size one! We should have the Cut Loose Press pattern we used for the project back in stock today. You might enjoy making it - lots of half square triangles go together to make the striking 70” x 70” quilt.
Pattern card $3.95
We hope to offer more Zoom events soon - watch the newsletters for details.
