Last minute Christmas gifts and decorations

Everyone loves snowmen because you don’t have to take them down with the Christmas tree.  And, lets face it, when that tree comes down, the house just looses some of its magic!

This latest pattern by Need’l Love will be arriving this week – and is the cutest pattern I have seen in a long time.


Item #LP1  Retail $5.00

Bundle this pattern with some buttons packets for eyes and orange wool for the carrot noses.  And, since the pattern is only $5.00, there is room in the budget for a collection of seasonal fat quarters to get them started!

These Winter Mug Rugs are embroidered in the hoop and make great Christmas presents.  Combine them with a coffee mug and a collection of teas and coffees to create a gift basket that begins and ends with love…


Item #ASD198  Retail $15.00

For those of you who would still like to make some personal ornaments, this pattern includes an even dozen!  They work up so quickly in blue work and are so portable they can travel with you!


Item #BBD699  Retail $10.00

Invited to any weddings this winter?  Why not make the bridal couple a tree skirt or stockings?

These stockings use the LILTWISTER and can be pieced very quickly.  Your customers probably have the tool, but if not, we have more arriving any day…


Item #NM-130  Retail $9.00

This tree skirt can be made in an afternoon with the Creative Grids 30 degree ruler


Item #SGD029  Retail $10.00

All of these are easy to kit as well, and would make great gifts for the quilter in your life.

Fall has Officially arrived!

For those “Twister” fans, Twister Owl has joined the family of delightful designs from Need’l Love just in time for Fall. Change the size of the project by changing the size of the Twister tool.

The animals have personality which makes them hard to resist!

Yes, I know!  You just celebrated Fourth of July and I am going to  talk about Halloween!  But, let’s face it, Halloween is the second biggest holiday – and all of those fabrics are sitting in your shop!  And one of my favorite designers is releasing a new book this month that should be the showcase of your fall display!
