Andina_banner

I don't even know where to begin on this blog post because my excitement for today's collection release is more than what I can express in words! As someone who is from Peru, this collection means a lot more to me as it has a lot of prints that represent who I am and where I come from. As soon as I saw “Andina” in the works and why, my heart skipped a beat. Andina was inspired by the Andes culture, which takes a few elements from several countries on the western side of South America like their ...

New Arrivals from Twin Cities Quilting

Hi Everyone,

How Fun!  We had a visit from Rob Appell from Michael Miller Fabrics. Click here to see the video he made while he was touring the shop.

We also now carry Sue Spargo's felted merino wool.  I've been thinking about doing this for a while and decided to take the plunge.  It is comparably priced to our hand dyed selection but the sixty colors are solids.  They make for a more modern look and show off your embroidery stitches a bit more. We are selling them in fat quarters and fat eighths.

Hi Everyone,

I wish you all a wonderful holiday season!  Enjoy your family, eat too much and come in the store to buy your own holiday gift.  We all deserve to treat ourselves to new fabric this time of year.  I even shop the store this time of year.  Last week I took home the new extra-large stripology ruler.  I'm going to test it out this weekend once my 60mg rotary cutter arrives.  One customer told me she cuts up to eight layers and can get everything cut so much faster.  Stop by next week and I will show ...
