Lunch Hour Projects in Wool

I know when a book is in the top 50 at Checker – and isn’t due to arrive until March, we have a winner. And, in this case, the reputation of the author and designer speaks volumes!





Kathy Brown of Teacher’s Pet has created fourteen of the most adorable projects that really can be completed in a lunch hour or two. Look at these charming examples:






































We all need that little something throughout the year to let people know we care. Why not teach a wool class – and kit these projects for a register display. These are the type of projects that everyone will make in quantities. After all, who could resist making journals for everyone in their book club? You get the idea! The book arrives in March – just when customers are looking for handwork for vacation travels. Stock up on wool now!

The Critters have entered the Building!

The Teacher’s Pet booth at Quilt Market was the hit of the show!  Kathy Brown was in one of our school houses and stole the stage with her Alligator Tales fabric line and the quilts she designed around it.

The foundation of these quilts is created by sewing strips together.  The pattern includes the alphabet so they can be personalized for the “critter lover” in your life.  Let them play peek-a-boo with their favorite animal.
