You asked for it.....

Over the years, a lot of folks have come in and asked if we carry any Kaffe Fassett fabrics.  Well.....I think we've had 2 bolts in 17+ years.  Here in Whatcom County, we try to *play nicely with others* as far as fabric stores go.  We always answered the *Kaffe question* with, "They carry lots of it over at Fourth Corner Quilts....would you like a map on how to get there?"  When the local Kaffe-lovers heard about the closure of Fourth Corner last month, we were immediately begged asked to carry some of his fabrics by a lot of our customers ~ in person, over the phone and by e-mail!!   After some long and careful deliberation, we asked for help from a few Kaffe aficionados and placed an order or two.  Well, the day has arrived and we now have 20-30 bolts of Kaffe Fassett fabrics with more on their way.  (Actually, 4 more bolts came this afternoon after I had already taken this picture!)  We also brought in a few of his books, including the newest *Quilts in Morocco* that just arrived.  Several customers have offered use of their projects using some of his fabrics and we will have those to display shortly as well.  The fabrics are beautiful and colorful, so even if you don't think of yourself as a fan, I think you'll be surprised at how well they can complement your projects.

What else is new?  I took three days in a row off!!  How about that?  We had our annual Stewart family camp out at Bay View State Park....it was tons of fun.  Maybe I'll put up a picture soon for you to see.  I even made *camping pillowcases* for the four grandkids from some *end of the bolt* camping fabrics ~ the boys' had outhouses on them, among other things  =)  Hope you've been enjoying the glorious summer weather.....more later!
