It is time to sign up for the next Lizzie Kate A Little Mystery Sampler. It will come out in three pattern parts – Mid July, August and September. There will be an embellishment pack to decorate the sampler. Flosses used include Sampler Threads – Avocado, Holly Berry and Weeks Dye Works – Chickpea, Carrot, Grits, Oscar, Purple Haze, Terrapin, Verdigris plus a few DMC – 437, 3042, 3354, 3768 colors. So check your stash to see what you will need. The models are being worked on 30 count Tea-Dyed linen and 14 count Lambswool Aida would a good substitute for those who prefer to work on Aida. There will be a bonus pattern in each of the parts.

Thanks to all of the All Iowa Shop Hoppers who visited our store. That event ended yesterday. Be sure to mail in your passport to the address on it so that it is postmarked by July 3rd to get in the drawings. Remember you only had to visit a minimum of five shops to get in a drawing. We do still have some of the Iowa fabrics if you want some and didn’t pick it up already, as well as, patterns and fabric kits for the Proud To Be An Iowan wall hanging.

Row By Row Experience is still continuing through September 8th. Each person who stops in may have a complimentary copy of our row pattern. We also have kits or button packs for those who would like them. (The green lily pad strips are even cut the correct width for you!) Remember to use an accurate 1/4″ seam when piecing the lily pad together or the 9″ blue strip may not fit. If you have any doubts, wait until you have assembled the lily pads before cutting the blue spacers and cut them to fit then. We have had lots of Friendly Froggies hopping out the door so watch to be sure you don;t step on one when you come in 😉 After October 31st, these kits will be available to be mailed to you if you can’t get in. Follow each state on their facebook page to see what rows are being designed. We also have our license plates for sale BORN 2 QLT.
