A CHANGE OF SEASON MEAN NEW REASONS TO SEW!
Hands up if you agree that this was the longest winter ever.
It may have been a long one but it does make us appreciate even more the birds singing, the sun shining, and the comforting hum of a tuned-up sewing machine! There’s nothing like a change of season to get those creative juices flowing and we’re excited for the possibilities: quilt a picnic blanket, make a messenger bag for road trips, or simply create new placemats to make your patio table stand out at your next BBQ. There’s no limit to what you can make to make the most of the warm weather ahead.
Now if only we could bring our entire sewing room outdoors…

So easy to be so connected!
If you've never made one before, a word of explanation: These are small baby quilts that are placed in the neonatal incubators and bassinets, so the size is restricted to between 22" x 22" and 24" x 24". Their small size also makes them perfect for testing block patterns, busting your stash, and practicing free-motion quilting.
Keeping in mind the intended recipients are newborns, please aim for cute and cheerful, using only 100% cotton or flannel in the top and backing, and 100% cotton thread for the construction and quilting. Cuddle quilts are typically sent home with the babies who use them, so there is a constant demand for them.
Thanks very much. Your donations will be gratefully appreciated!
We can special-order products for you!
It happens all the time: You're reading someone's blog and they recommend a pattern, book, notion, or other item that you'd really like to have. Only trouble is, either they don't sell it or you don't want to order it from them because of the exchange rate, shipping costs, Customs issues, whatever.
Let us deal with it! We can usually order these products from our suppliers, and all of the hassles are taken care of. No fuss, no muss, and your order comes right to the store and into your hands.
