The shop has been busy and productive. Stop in and see all the fabric and notions in the saleroom. Yes, there is $4.00 a yard fabric, scrap bags, books and patterns. We need to clear out some shelves to make room for new fabric and patterns due in soon. Great time to pick up fabric for backings! Each week between now and the end of December there will be instore specials. 
Here is your chance to win a bundle of Fat Quarters of the Downton Abbey line of fabric. Each time you make a purchase of $10.00or more (one per visit) you get a chance on the bag containing the Downton Abbey fabric. The bag is cute and could be used as a gift! 
I am a member of the Midwest Fabric Study Group. Last Weekend we met in Kokomo. The meeting was well  attended (50 members). Presentations were made on Chintz, log cabin and red and white quilts. Show and tell was varied and inspiring. We got a long list of books about fabric dies. A special guest arrived--Arnold of Arnolds Attic fame. Barbara Brackman produced a line of fabric based on Arnold's collection of antique fabrics. A spry 88 years young and still so enthusiastic about fabric and quilting. He shared a small sample of his collection. Look for him in July at the Quilter's Hall of Fame. Due to the threat of sever weather we adjorned the meeting early. I am pleased to say we all made it home safely.
Please keep Deb in your thoughts and prayers. She will be having back surgery in December.
