Life's About To Get Good With New Fabric!

 

Seeew...

Life is about to get good because not only am I going to share with you the new fabrics coming to the Shoppe....but guess who is making a comeback?!

Shania Twain!!!!

I stumbled across her new song the other night and I have purchased the first three songs available! I'm hooked! It's the perfect video to celebrate the end of Summer and the perfect song to move on from betrayal. If you haven't ever had that in your life, be thankful. Apparently it has taken her a decade to get over it...from what I've read. She's not calling me nightly or anything. 

Her husband was such a dog, wasn't he? Note to self: Never get involved with anyone named Mutt.

Be on the lookout for her two iconic looks from "Man I Feel Like A Woman" and "Any Man Of Mine."

Mods-Pineapple-Quilt-Kit (1)

Anyhoo....life is truly about joy! Right? 

Do you know what else brings me joy?

Our Mod Pineapple Quilt Kit. This popular pattern by Sew Kind of Wonderful is simply enchanting.

Did you know the pineapple has long had a tradition of being the symbol for friendship and hospitality? A pineapple on display within social gatherings reassures the guest that no expense has been spared in creating an enjoyable time. Add the pineapple to a quilt and you've got an extra dose of enchantment! The color selection by the Mothership for our quilt is spot-on! The woman knows color and she takes pride in ensuring that everything we make here at the Shoppe has a fabulous outcome!

I mentioned above that I would show you new fabrics coming to the Shoppe! Well...if life is about to get good...then it's going to get really good because the "Mothership" has ordered several collections that are due to arrive in the Shoppe between now and December! I can't show you them all in one post but here are some of our favorites!

As I have said for many years, the only way to ensure that there is always something new here in the Shoppe, is to support the Shoppe. If you don't live locally we have a website to shop from. When you shop from our website you ensure that the doors to our brick and mortar remain open for when you do decide to visit. Can't say that about an on-line only source now can ya???

Our New Mystery Club featuring Moda's Authentic Etc. by Sweetwater! Starts September 28

Authentic-Fabrics-3

Seeew...

There are two upcoming club-like programs you may want to consider getting signed up for as soon as possible. They are, as the headline suggests...our new Border Creek Station Mystery Club featuring Authentic Etc. and our new session of the very popular Farm Girl Vintage B.O.M. which I have covered in full detail here. Both clubs have an in-store and on-line option to participate. 

You may recall waaaay back in 2009 or 2010 the talented women behind Moda's Sweetwater released one of their first collections called, "Authentic." It was an absolute hit and sold out immediately. I can see why! The colors are always current and the designs are fresh! Eight years later they have revisited that iconic color palette and are bringing us their all-new Authentic Etc. Here's a peak at the fabrics....

Authentic-Fabrics

There are (as I shared above) two ways to participate: With Membership (in-store) or Without Membership (on-line).
I received an email the other day wanting to know what the quilt looks like seeew I must emphasize that a Mystery Quilt...IS A MYSTERY! I can tell you that we will be making the lap size and the "Mothership", Christine and I have all seen it. It's a fabulous quilt.

"With Membership" includes all eight monthly in-store meetings with clues, snacks (wine and cheese anyone?) and prize giveaways. The meeting dates are one Thursday a month from 6:30pm-7:30pm: September 28, October 26, November 16, January 25 2018, February 22 2018, March 29 2018, April 26 2018, & May 24 2018. * Please note there is not a meeting in December. The kit will be handed out at the first meeting with the first installment of the pattern. You will receive an installment of the pattern at each meeting thereafter seeew you want to make sure you attend! 

"Without Membership" is the on-line version of the program and is available for those who want to complete the program on their own. The first mailing will include the fabric kit with the the first pattern installment. The remaining pattern installments will be shipped once a month after the in-store meetings have taken place.

The "Mothership" (a.k.a. Jan for the newbies) is providing two kit colorways to select from, Black/Cream or Green/Cream (refer to the picture of the fabrics above).

Below are the links to the different options. Remember..."With Membership" is the in-store sign up and "Without Membership" is for those of you who want to do the program on-line.
