That left room in the downstairs workshop for the Wooden Toys and Gifts shop to move into newer quarters. And that move created more open space in the front of the barn for Quilters' Quarters to expand ... and so it is!
|Ann's Fat Quarters and Bundles of Eighths|
|Ann Lainhart's Fussy Cut Fabric note cards|
Ann Lainhart has restocked our special fat quarters and "bundles of eighths" color family selections from her own collection of beautiful quilt-quality fabrics. Ann has also added to her collection of quilted note cards, including some Christmas designs for kids. Remember, these cards include actual hand done "fussy-cut" kaleidoscopic designs worked by Ann herself. Catalogs of Ann's work, including her jackets, vests, tile trivets and more are in the shop; remember to ask for yours if you don't see them while meandering through the cabinets full of fabric, the trunk of orphan offerings (remember: you set the price) and the new Wooden Toy and Gift showroom in the back of the barn.
|Lynne Schulte LaValley's art cards|
And our local painter, Lynne Schulte LaValley, is also offering a selection of cards representing some of her favorite holiday images for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, New Years and, if you're really planning ahead, Valentine's Day! Each of her cards contains a high quality print of one of her paintings.

As the shop's spacial changes occur, more room will exist for workshops, lessons and eventually classes. One such workshop is being planned for mid to late January: it is my goal to have the two Red-Eye Singer Treadle Sewing Machines in good working condition, and then offer a workshop on how to clean and maintain those old treasures that might be hiding in your family's favorite hidey-hole!
