Christmas Planning...



Do you hear it? Do you see it? Um...did you like my little video? LOL. Woo-hoo! Let's get excited out there!  July 25 is the subtle message in my mind that our 2015 holiday season isn't far away. Do you have your Christmas quilts planned and ready to go? Unless you have super powers, I seriously doubt you can quilt, decorate the house, prepare your holiday meals, take the kids to their Christmas pageants, and watch tree lighting ceremonies all in one month. Quilts take time and if you want them quilted and ready for your holiday's time to get busy! I'll share with you all of the fun we have planned soon, but until then enjoy three of the Mothership's favorite new quilts below. 

Our loyal followers know that registration for our 7th Annual Homespun & Holly is underway. Seeew far we have folks attending from Washington, California, Arizona, Idaho, Utah,  Wyoming, Nebraska, Missouri, Arkansas...and of course our loyal Oregonians! Seating is limited to Sunday, November 15 and we may be able to accommodate you for Saturday, November 14 (depending on your party size). For Saturday, you will need to call us at 503-607-0600. For Sunday, please register here on our website

Do you not have a clue what Homespun & Holly is? Well, take a peak at last year's event by clicking right here

Now, if you will excuse me I am mapping out the Shoppe layout in my head and on paper of where I want my holiday display. This part drives me nuts as I have a vivid imagination and I question how much I can realistically accomplish. The quilt below is called Starry Pines and we literally only have a handful of these quilt kits. Uno, dos, tres, quatro...This one won't last until the holidays seeew if you love it, get it. I'm telling you now. We do however, recommend this quilt for intermediate to advanced quilters. I cover all the information right here. (P.S. for future readers...if the link isn't taking you anywhere, it's because the item is sold out:-) 

Make a wish that will last forever and remember...beeee seeew-cial! ~ Brian



The crisp red and greens of Christmas standout on a winter white background creating a dramatic and dazzling quilt for the holidays in our Yuletide Snowflake Quilt, which was made with the gorgeous Fig Tree pattern. I guess you could say it's when Edyta from Laundry Basket and Joanna from Fig Tree collided. LOL. Kits available here


Rich reds, various shades of holiday greens combined with a natural linen, help create vintage holiday goodness in our La Fete De Noel Quilt. Complete quilt kits are available here and include everything you need to get your holiday sewing into action! 

Golden Dreams



"America, you must keep dreaming now...."

We salute the men and women (along with their families) who have given so much to our country. It is because of them that we remain free and can continue to dream.

Happy 4th of July to all of you! Enjoy your celebrations! ~ Brian
