Here's What's Happening

It's that time already! Valley of the Sun Shop Hop
passports on Sale beginning Monday August 8th.
Passports are still $5.00 & have the 2011 limited edition quilt block charm.
There are 12 shops participating this year. We have geared up to provide all you hoppers an educational (demos), quilt show (shop hop quilts), & most of all lots of fun. Don't delay in purchasing your passport, you don't want to be left out of the fun.
The delivery of new fabric has kept us busy organizing & moving bolts around. It also means we have moved some fabrics to the 40% Off section. Theses are some bolts that no longer have coordinates or have just been on the shelf a tad bit too long. These will make great backing or several would be wonderful in your next charity quilt. Do not wait on purchasing, these fabrics don't last long at this discounted price.
We also found several bolts that went into our end of bolt basket.
These are discounted by 20% and range in size from 1/4 yd to 1 3/4 yd.

All the Christmas fabrics have finally arrived in the shop. The staff is wondering what I was thinking! There are LOTS, from very traditional Christmas red & green, a soft pastel snowman & angel line, to the bright, fun, & whimsical collection I've featured in the next photo.
We have the cutest wall hanging kit made with Christmas Candy fabric line from Riley Blake designs. The sample quilt top is hanging in the shop; it is bright, fun, & totally whimsical. We have changed the outer border to a white background with cheerful wrapped Christmas presents. We have several kits available. We also have a sample of the Sassy Little Apron pattern made using the Candy on Red & polka dots on white.
There are lots of samples to give you ideas & inspiration. Come in & check them out.
Get started on your holiday projects while the selections are at the best!

The class schedule for August, September, & October is ready.
The teachers have got a wide variety of projects.
There is something for everyone.
We decided to feature a new bag/tote once a month. Each one will teach you a new technique.
We are repeating the basic classes;
paper piecing, fusible machine applique, simple binding, quilt labels.
We have a new teacher;

Sandy machine quilts all her own quilts on her regular home machine, she has lots to share with her students.
