Carol Needabo


Carol Needabo was in to long arm her gorgeous queen size quilt this week. Using greys, aquas and coral colours she really pulled off a fabulous quilt!

Carol is sending this one off to Eastern Canada  and I am sure she is going to make someone very very happy!

Carol used Carpet of Leaves panto and glide thread for fast and perfect results every time!

Thank you to Carol for sharing with us all!

Maureen Connelly


Maureen Connelly was in to long arm quilt her gorgeous scrappy quilt yesterday. I couldn't believe this is from her scraps. The chances of me having enough scraps that actually looked this good together is pretty darn slim. And I am afraid Slim has left town.

Maureen found a gorgeous shade of pastel yellow to quilt with and it was just beautiful! 

Thank you to Maureen for sharing your day with us and all the giggles and smiles you bring each and every time you come in!

Leigh Beech was in to long arm quilt her gorgeous Fractured Star quilt by Judy Neimeyer. This quilt was made for her granddaughter and she is going to just love it!

Leigh used a quilt panto called P.S. I Love You and Glide thread for perfect results. This one really is a show stopper and we were all just so thrilled to see Leigh work her way through. The quilting took her from 10 in the morning until about 3pm. Now to get the binding and the label on and she is done!

Thank you to Leigh for sharing with everyone! We had so much fun with you in the shop.


Vintage Christmas

It seems a bit early to be thinking Christmas but why not be a quilting keener and have these ready early!

One panel makes 4 placemats. The placemats are quite large so you may want to size them down. the finished size is 13" x 22".

We have the matching plaid for your binding as well as the all over print for the backing. Panels are priced at $13.99. 

Check it out in the store or on line at


Anne Hall and Heather have joined again to offer a quilting cruise next fall. Of course it will be contingent on the Covid situation but I am thinking positive and in the meantime I can have tons of fun planning new outfits and new projects! More about projects coming in an upcoming newsletter!

The Sad Case of Rising Costs

rising costs  

Due to increase costs in running our long arm program we are sadly forced  to raise the price a little itty bitty bit.
Effective July 1st , long arm  rental will no longer include thread  at no charge. There will be a $5 charge for using our thread. You can bring bring your own Glide thread if you like. 
We are working hard to keep the cost down as much as possible. This is just so hard for me to do and I hope you all can understand what we are up against. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Now I am ready to have a bit of a cry.

Is this not the cutest quilt for the summer? With vintage bathing suits, bicycles and more this is a real trip down memory lane! 

Quilt finishes at 60" x 74" so a nice size for the beach [ when we get to go to the beach and when it stops raining ] or on your couch for that summer feel.

Well this is Exciting!!


It is a Saturday afternoon and guess what happened? The Delivery fellow came with 5 boxes!!

It was wildly exciting with much gasping, oohing and aahing and  fondling . The delivery man had left immediately before all that started, so he was definitely not involved. Just being clear.

The fabrics are gorgeous and we have everything from strip packs, flannels and cottons. We even have the Creative Grids template for making the masks in 3 different sizes! 

Check out in the shop on Monday or on line....everything new is up and under the NEW section!
