The top of Mt. Mansfield is white...
That's our clear sign that Fall is soon to be in the rear view mirror. It's really a lovely sight, though, and one that many of us have looked at as inspiration for a landscape quilt. Heading east on Route 15 at sunset, you see the white peaks against a pink/purple/blue evening sky - it's just gorgeous. We might have to dye our own fabric, though, to get that sky just right. Do you have a special spot on your daily drive, one that's begging to be made into a quilt? Take a moment, pull over, and take a photo with your phone (or your camera). That's the first step. Take that photo to your stash, and then to the quilt shop, and match fabrics to the colors in your photo. Depending on your preferred method of construction, you can piece, or applique, or fuse, or paint your way to making that memory permanent. Are your fingers itching to get started? Great!
We continue to receive fabric, most in small amounts. Our batiks are coming at a quicker pace, and in greater number. Check out the photos below for what's arrived in the past two weeks. And more is on the way!
A reminder if you are coming to see us:
*Masks are mandatory, for both customers and staff.
*Please sanitize at the door when you come in. Your hands must be completely dry before you can touch the fabric.
*Store capacity is 4 customers at once.
*We will remain closed on Sundays until further notice.
We are still processing orders to ship, and Store Pickups, so feel free to shop online if you're not comfortable coming in. Cindy has put more than 2,100 bolts of our inventory on the website, and Marti has added thread, books, and patterns. We're doing our very best to make your Yankee Pride experience a good one, whether you're walking among the bolts or shopping from your couch.
