This cookie cutter collection #CNCCS is great this time of year when everyone is making sugar cookies – but are great year round for all of those quilting events.
These gift items designed by Lori Holt are adorable. Start dreaming – and organizing your next quilt project. This calendar #ST-4150 starts whenever you want it to! Or, decorate your fridge or machine with this magnet set #ST-4150.
This beautiful scarf #SCARFVICT can add a touch of class to any quilter.
Go through your store and pull out other items that should be placed center stage for those seeking last minute gifts. Your customers may be surprised that you have more than fabric!
I love it when one of our babies – in this case the Creative Grids Circle Savvy ruler – takes on a life of its own. When the designers came to us, we were blown away by the possibilities. But, in this case, once they had a chance to play with it, the true potential of this tool emerged! Karla Alexander of Saginaw St Quilts has a vision and a style that has become instantly recognizable.
My circles never looked like this!!!!
Who would have thought that both quilts were made with the same tool????
These quilts are much easier than you think! Piecing large curves is a piece of cake – especially when you have the right tools and patterns! Moon Shadow and Polka Box have a more traditional look – and may be the perfect transition class to move your customers toward more artsy, free form quilts.
Why not challenge your students in the new year – and offer classes that will challenge them to try techniques that they may not be comfortable with. For our industry to continue to grow, we must continue to learn! And these quilts appeal to everyone – and bridge the gap between tradition and art!

These projects can still be done in time for Christmas so check out these popular choices. For those of you who have a furry member of the family…
What seamstress wouldn’t like this work of art in her sewing room?
Or bring back memories of Old Blue…
Why not start your New Year’s resolution today – and throw that box out! Add some classes to the schedule that will expand techniques for your current customers – and may actually introduce a new audience to quilting. After all, no perfect seam allowance is required!
