Christmas in July~

Well, no, it's not terribly cool inside our shop this week ... the ancient air conditioner is playing possum. But Rick will be setting up the canopies out front for the weekend as we celebrate his annual Christmas in July sale at Wooden Toy and Gift

He has new products to show, and some old favorites. There are still a few pieces of his own 18" doll furniture that are marked down. The wooden ornaments and Christmas Tree centerpieces with wooden packages that can be labeled with your family names will also be available. Carousels with snowmen and reindeer, and trucks of many sizes will be there. He will also put out his winter toy, the "push me pull me" sled, and the favorite rolling rattle for our youngest customers.


  Of course, some of my holiday quilts will be out front on the tables for the weekend.



And we will fill the Little Free Library with holiday books as well.

While Rick will be sharing customers' nostalgic memories of wooden toys, I'll be in the Quilt Shop making more kits for the Row by Row shoppers. We've had more than fifty visitors in the first ten days of July, which is amazing for both of us. I spoke with the fabric warehouse staff today and was told that the Sew a Season fabric may arrive in a few weeks, but beyond current orders, Timeless Treasures will not be filling any more. Glad my order went in early this week, so that at least one bolt of the winter spring summer fall trees will be back in the shop for August kits. I've also re-ordered fabric license plates with our shop motto, Happy Quilter. Those, too, will be back in stock by August 1st, and maybe sooner. Meanwhile, customers who come in can reserve one of the new shipment of plates.

Row by Row has also sent out PDF templates for Journals that will encourage quilters to keep track of their visits to shops.  I'll be printing them out week by week, depending on interest in them. Customers who purchase fabric will receive the journal for free; others will be asked to donate (maybe $2.50?)  to help with the paper and ink costs. I've included pages to record your experience with eight shops; the pages can be copied if you are lucky enough to be visiting more than eight shops this summer. They are meant to be reproduced, without copyright restriction.


Come and see Rick and me this weekend if you can ... you won't be disappointed! Click on any picture to enlarge it for details.


What else is new at Quilters' Quarters?


We're doing "Build a Kit" now, until the new fabric arrives.  I'm able to make Spring, Summer and Autumn kits, but have decided to give customers a choice: make a row of one season, with a seasonal view in the window, or with the dark sky featured in the original Beyond Winter Windows pattern. Or, make a four season row, using one of each season blocks, with a reserved winter tree strip or replacing the winter tree with a spring or summer tree strip.


Here are two options:


The kits include fabrics for four blocks' frames, walls and windowsills; the quilter can choose which window view fabric they want to use in their row. We're calling this "Choose your View" kits. The fabric kits for a four block row  are priced at $9.00. Extra squares of fabric for possible embellishments are included in the spring, summer and autumn sky kits.
