From Moda - Star and Stripe Gatherings is a patriotic collection of small scale vintage inspired prints by Lisa Bongean. 
True Americana colors sparkle to remind us of summer days with backyard parties, picnics on the lawn 
and parades down main street. Check out her new book.
From Robert Kaufman - Charlotte Circa 1860 - This is a reproduction line from Carrie Quinn a new designer for Kaufman. Have been anxiously awaiting this line. I LOVE the blues and browns.

From Robert Kaufman - Goose Pond - This is a really cute flannel line and we have kits available for a cute quilt. See below.
From Robert Kaufman - Mammoth - flannel, manly, and cozy...this double sided flannel is just what the current weather requires!

From Robert Kaufman - Aunt Ella's Butterflies - Sorry, no butterflies in this 30's reproduction line...instead use these lovely prints to make butterflies. Just what we needed to fill in some empty spaces in our 30's reproduction fabric. Also Precuts - Layer cakes, charms, and jelly rolls.

From Moda Sweet Tea by Sweetwater - 
Ah... sweet summertime! It's a time to relax on a porch swing while sipping a cold glass of freshly brewed "sweet tea". No matter what your drink of choice is, let this Sweet Tea fabric collection inspire you to relax a bit and create a beautiful quilt to sit beside you.
Star and Stripe Gatherings by Lisa Bongean This book is a collection of 19 projects, quilts, runners, pillow, pincushions and wool mats, all done to decorate our homes and show our American pride. All the projects use her newest fabric line Star and Stripe Gatherings. This is a wonderful book full of traditional patterns that will remind you why you love quilting.
Turnabout Patchwork - (Back in Stock) Start with a simple block. Slice, turn and sew slices back together. Then watch the magic happen! It's hard to believe such complex looking blocks can cone from such easy to sew blocks. Turnabout techniques transform even the most basic blocks into show-stopping quilts. 24 quilt patterns included in this book.
Wooly Wonder Pincushions in three neutral colors. Just love these and they match the wooly pressing mats! Perfect gift for your Valentine.
Heat Erase Marking Pens - These are like the heat erase pens we are all used to, but thought it was nice to have the variety of colors in a set. Also it says the ink can be completely removed with water. I didn't think that was an option before.
Gingher Designer Series Eleanor scissors 8",5" 4". Every year Gingher comes out with a new designer series and lots of people collect them. This years design is so feminine and softly colored they remind me of Spring and Mother's Day.
Rail Run by Mountain Peak Creations - This pattern is a great way to use those panels that run crosswise or even fabric with a large repeat.

Dino Party kits are now available. Come in and see Ranette's new sample.
Baker Street Goose Pond kits are now available. This is a fast and fun quilt to make!
