Sew proud....

 This Saturday, June 15th, we are hosting a reception/magazine signing for our friend/customer/designer Tonya Alexander.  That's her cute smiley face you see in the picture.  We are *sew proud* of her....she has three quilts right now in current magazines, with even more coming!  Those are the magazines in the next picture ~ Scrap Quilts and McCalls Quilting.  The last picture is of the quilt that is in the McCalls magazine.  She's letting us hang that Saturday for the reception.  It's called Tickled Pink.  Plus....she's releasing a brand new pattern Saturday called *All I Want For Christmas*.  It is one darling tree skirt pattern.  And, it's quilt as you go, so is super do-able for anyone!  We've got her original sample, plus our Tracey was the *official pattern tester* for this design and we'll have that sample too, along with the fabrics she used, in the shop next week for Shop Hop.  Sew, if you're in the neighborhood Saturday, pop in anytime between 1:30-3:30; have a cookie and coffee/tea/juice; give Tonya a high five; and take a look around at her wonderful work.

Okay....I am doing lots of deep breathing as we try and pull things together for Shop Hop.  I always think I can get waaaay more done than actually comes into fruition.  Have a few bindings to sew and a pattern to get ready and lots of models to move around and passports to print and kits we might get ready and a mug rug to quilt.......okay.....that's enough of that for now!  Today, we got some of the newest Kansas Troubles Christmas line *Icicle Kisses* in the shop.  Oh, and the posters for Shop Hop came yesterday, so today we also have the laminated 8 1/2" x 11" posters with the quilt directions for you.  Large posters are $7.50 + tax and the smaller laminated ones are $3.00 (includes tax).   All right....I am off to work on those bindings now!
