Sewing Sewcial FUN

In a land far far away a group of friends (who just happen to be local quilt shop owners) got together and designed an event that will leave quilters hopping from one fantasy place to another.

Sewing Sewcial is out of this world.

  • 12 Shops
  • 12 blocks - all precut and ready to sew when you receive them in the mail
  • $6.99 includes shipping within the United States
  • 12 different quilt patterns
  • Prizes
We each came up with a "fantasy" name for our blocks and because I'm a big fan of the Avenger's movies our blocks name is Asgard.

Each shop made 12 of their blocks and passed them around so that each quilt contains everyone's block. I think I'm the luckiest owner cause Angie made our blocks and did an amazing job. 

So why not pop over to the Sewing Sewcial website and check out the rest of the blocks...the quilts will be loaded soon and we can't wait to reveal them to everyone.

Until Next Time

Weather Alert

Normally in the winter we close the shop for snow or ice and this year we've not had to close for either...


WIND...who closes for wind??? Well we do...

We're getting some pretty high sustained winds today. The electricity is off and on so earlier this morning I made the decision to close the shop, to keep the employees and customers safe. There are trees down over roads, power lines are snapping, it really is better to be safe.

So...I'm thinking I can work on a block of the month and get the top done..then BAM...just like that our electricity went out. 

Here are my choices on what I can do without electricity:

  • Wool hand work
  • Hand embroidery
  • Pet Bodhi & Stella (she is a nervous nelly with the wind)
  • Take a nap
What I won't be doing:

  • Using my sewing machine, iron or GO! Cutter
  • Doing a live video
  • Watching Fixer Upper or any other HGTV Show
  • Cleaning the house
SO...if you are stuck home today because of the weather, what will you be doing???

Stay Safe
Stay Warm
Until Next Time
Be Kind

Lots of puppy dog pictures

Customers quilts

KAQ Bag on travels

We have had a wonderful 13 years in business and I'm looking forward to what the future will friendships, new travels, new quilts, new techniques..and maybe a few throwback memories, because after all, memories shape who we are today.

THANK YOU to everyone that has joined us on this journey and sticking with us and we hope that you stick with us because we have some rockin' things planned for 2018.

If you live local plan to join us on Saturday March 17, 2018 as we celebrate our Lucky 13 event at KAQ.

Until Next Time

A Dream

Warning...this blog post may cause some tears, but believe me, that are happy ones. I had a dream last night, and my father was in it. No...
