Look what we had going on in the shop on Friday and Saturday!

Customer quilt I recently finished!
I did it!!!  Two weeks, two blog posts!  Next week is Super Bowl Sunday, so I'll have to take my laptop to the party...

I will entice you to comment on the blog again this week - maybe no one really wanted a calendar??  Let's see if we can get more than 6 comments this week...  How about a fat quarter pack?  How about a pack of 8 color coordinated fat quarters?  Anyone want to comment now??  I will count any and all comments left up until 12:01 a.m. Saturday morning...  Good luck and I can't wait to read all the comments!

Until next time, hug and stitches,

Woolylady Trunk Show

If you have never tried applique with wool, you are in for a treat!  Even if you have no desire to applique, just touching the wool makes your mouth water.  The colors are so luscious! 

I am actually working on one the Woolylady kits - and you know "hand" is a 4 letter word to me!  I am doing the applique by machine using a 12 wt. wool thread!  Don't believe me?  Come in to the store and I'll show you!

Since I didn't let everyone know about the new blog until now, make sure you go back to the last blog post and read about the giveaway.  I will count any comments on that blog or this one as entered in the contest.  Post your comments no later than 1/27 and I will choose a winner on the 28th.

Until next time hugs and stitches,

Happy New Year!

I know, I’m 10 days late, but better late than never!

Crafty Threads has been open 4 months.  Sometimes it feels like just yesterday and sometimes it feels like 5 years.


We try to take pictures of things happening at the shop and I have collected quite a few photos since we opened.  They take up a lot of room in the newsletter, so I have decided to start this blog to share photos with you.  I will ramble on about various and sundry topics but I’ll try to keep them related to the shop, or quilting, or the weather…

There are those out in blogger land that write something EVERY day – some even write several times a day.  Well, my goal is weekly…  I’m not promising – just making it a goal!!

To gauge the readership of the blog, I’m going to blatantly bribe you!!  Leave a comment letting me know you read this post and you will be entered to win a prize.  What’s the prize?  How about a 2011 “She’s Sew Silly” Calendar?

calendar Until next time,

Hugs and Stitches,
