There is always something new around the Shoppe every week! This week, there is seeew much new...I don't even know that I can possibly show and discuss all of it! I'll give it my best shot.
First, Jan has released two new Farm Girl Vintage Block Kits from our version of Lori Holt's Farm Girl Vintage. If you're new around here, for the last 10 months the Shoppe has been holding a Farm Girl Vintage Block of The Month. The blocks have become seeew popular, that Jan has been adding individual block kits available for purchase both in our Shoppe and on our website by clicking here. She just added the Wooly Sheep pictured above. BTW...you will need the book Farm Girl Vintage by Lori Holt to complete these blocks.
Jan also added fabric kits for Barn Cat but just like with Milk Cow & Penny Pig, the pattern is not available in the book for Barn Cat. We have included details on how to obtain the pattern in our fabric kit.
If you missed our Farm Girl Vintage B.O.M. (um...because that was last year and we are on month 10 now) you may want to join us for our Barn Girl Vintage B.O.M. We have already started, but we have created a few more spots and there is still time to catch up! For information and to register, click the image below or click here. You will need to purchase a copy of Farm Girl Vintage by Lori Holt if you don't already have one. We offer Barn Girl Vintage as an on-line only option, or if you're local we meet once a month in-store on Thursday evenings at 6:30pm or Saturday morning at 9am. You select the day you want to come.
It wasn't all Farm Girl Vintage that happened this week....we also received pre-cuts for two new Moda collections with fabric on the way next week! I'm super excited for an all-new holiday season and Sweetwater's Cookie Exchange is just sugary-sweet! I can smell those cookies in the oven! It's already got us thinking about our own workshop, "Homespun & Holly." The workshop is now full on Friday & Saturday, but we have plenty of seats left for Sunday, December 4. I can't rehash the details today, seeew you're going to have to click here for more information, including what it is, who is coming and all that good stuff! Trust me though, you don't want to miss it! This year I'm in more of a holiday mood than ever before with our new workshop space....and now even more seeew with the colors in this new collection! If you don't know the women behind Sweetwater...they are simply some of the sweetest gals in Quilt World. To view and order fabrics from the collection click here or stop into the Shoppe next week (I'm thinking by Wednesday the fabrics should be on the floor. Pre-cuts are already in the Shoppe).
Never to be outdone by a cookie, Little Ruby is also here in the house of Holly. Little Ruby is Moda's new collection by the mom and daughter design duo, Bonnie & Camille. Yes...that Camille. I mean seriously....when your first book tops Martha Stewart on the best seller list, you only have to be known by your first name. As always, this new collection blends perfectly with some of their previous collections including Miss Kate and Vintage Picnic.
In a surprising turn of events, we actually have our sample made before the fabrics arrive! Woo-hoo! It's usually the other way around. This is a new pattern called Patchwork Swoon. It is made with a Jelly Roll. Do you know how many versions of this I can think of for Christmas? Or what about with some red white and blue? I know...I'm a freak about Christmas quilts, but I believe a Christmas quilt is always extra special. Plus, you have to start sewing Christmas quilts in the summer if you haven't already started!
Both Bonnie & Camille design patterns under their individual pattern company names, Cotton Way and Thimble Blossoms. One of our favorite Thimble Blossom patterns is called, Spools. It too can be made with a Moda Jelly Roll and there is also a mini version available. How can you not have something like this in your sewing room? To not have a quilt with a related sewing theme should be a crime.
We have two more kits left of the beautiful Red Letter Day. We have both the pattern and the kit here in the Shoppe and on-line. Click the links. It's important to know that the base shipping price on our website is $5.95. This is for a USPS Flat Rate Envelope, which the majority of our products such as fabric requires. If you are ordering just one pattern we can ship individual patterns for $1.90 - $2.25. The pattern hanging back upon the yellow wall is Sherbert Stars by Cotton Way (Bonnie's pattern company).
The bottom of the quilt in the upper left corner is our kit for Canning Season. Here's what the entire thing looks like. It's an adorable wall hanging and much like the quilt for Spools, if you are not decorating your quilt-y spaces with cuteness like this...well then...we, we just can't be friends. LOL.
Last but not least....can we talk about our row for the 2016 Row by Row Experience for a minute?
Did you see the mass number of likes for this row on our Facebook page? Um...you're all scaring me! LOL. My goodness the reaction has been just...jaw dropping. Last I checked it was at 700 likes. I can see a lot of questions, but I honestly cannot respond to everyone seeew just know that we will be posting all of the details about it as the event approaches. If you're one of those anti-email people, you have other options to follow us including Instagram and Facebook but I will tell you that you'll be the first to know if you receive our daily inspiration email. You can sign up for our daily inspiration email on the front page of our website or you can follow the directions posted below via text.
That's it for today quilt-lings. We are open Memorial Day from 11am-3pm. The row is temporarily on display in the Shoppe before Jan & Christine take it out for more work. They will be adding a few extra details.
Until next time stay seeew-cial! ~ Brian
