Beautiful Salt Lake City

 This is a really beautiful city. I open the curtains each morning and there are the mountains right in front of me.

 Quilt market is a busy place. Here we are day one all full of anticipation at what we may see within. I have purchased some great things to bring back so everyone can be excited

 The gorgeous Kellie and Jan from "Don't look now" were very busy and below is one of Kellies designs on display at a quilt shop I visited in the Utah Valley

 I also had the pleasure of spending time with my friend Sue, and her stand as always, stood out in the crowd.

 Sue has designed a wonderful new ribbon range, so have a look next time you are in our store as I have ordered the full range.

Thank you Jennifer, Elizabeth, Sue, Kelly, Melissa and Cathy for a scrumptious dinner and fun night in general. I bought a sewing project with me but I have been so busy socialising I haven't done a stitch. It has been a wonderful few days. I am sorry the photos are a little dull but I am working from my baby laptop and I have realised I don't have an editing program I can access

Delilah - Lucy's Journey - Part 1

A fair while ago, when working through the Delilah patterns I thought "yeah... I might just make this".
After a quick brain storm with the Boss Lady/Mum, I decided why not! But it has to be different, we thought because we have no use for 2 quilts that look very similar. So, what could I do? That's when my eyes landed on my always growing stash of Liberty.
March arrived and so did our stock of templates, and off I went...
My, my, my Delilah.

You have brought me to a few firsts so I think some confessions need to me made.

1. I have never pieced a curve.

Nope...  No sir! Not one.
Curves have always scared me. I could never wrap my head around them but the Boss Lady...

She loves them!

I mean... she really LOVES them!

Or maybe she just loves cruel and unusual punishment like this block?!
Just an idea.

Curves conquered.
But wait, there's more (confessions and curves!)

2.  I don't* own an iron.

Ha. Yup!
I managed to get to a few days shy of 30 years old without…

A very lovely, Susan, e-mailed us her version of JKD Green Tea and Sweet Beans.

We love it!
She made it at a shop in USA called Sewing Party. Amazing!


Well, no. Not really! It’s more the truth about Amitie.

We never write on this blog. We want to but it’s always at the bottom of the very long to do list and it gets bumped. Bumped to the next day, next week (maybe even next year going by the last post… eeek!)

So why now? Why this post? We keep hearing things on the quilty grapevine. Things we mostly laugh at amongst ourselves because they’re so silly. But, recently there’s been a few that have made me think that some of these rumours could be a little damaging to our little fabric store so I using this platform to set the record straight.

Here are the three biggies answered straight from the horse’s mouth (neigh!)!
“I heard you’re closing?!”
Never been on the cards.
How this started I do not know. Maybe because the building we are housed in sold, which is the truth but the little rumour that followed is just gossip. We will be moving ag…
