Our 1st Winner

My random number generator chose #2 (out of 6), so congratulations to Cynthia!  Send me an email I will let you know how to claim your prize!

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

Marge L weaving a basket!!

Angie (Rapunzel)

February and March class baskets

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,

  7. Congratulations Barb on another blog entry. Crafty Threads is the best thing happening for us "sewists." If I'm not at my sewing machine, I'd rather be at Crafty Threads checking out all the fun fabrics, patterns, classes and beautiful models (tee hee) and dreaming of the beautiful things I will make (when I get time). Thank you and Karen (and your sweet staff) for bringing this to us!

  8. I took the basket weaving class and cannot wait for the February class! I also love going to Crafty Threads as they always are so helpful for this beginning quilter.

  9. Hey Barb, I finished the little sun dress and hat today. I can't believe it's possible, but it is even cuter than the Winter one. Can't wait to give it to you and Karen (Wednesday at PwP). I'm working on a diaper cover and it is looking pretty sweet, too. All pink and white with the white rick rack and I'm adding little ribbon flowers.

  10. Just had a chance to check your blog which I found very interesting. I was in Fl visiting my sister in Sept 2011 and used my droid app to find shops in the area. She lives in Apollo Beach. We judged your shop to be the best and actually spent the most money there. Then we stopped at the little restaurant and put it on our list of "must visit agains". Keep up the good work. Hope to be back soon. Love that I can shop with you on line.


  11. Wow, absolutely fantastic blog. I am very glad to have such useful information.
