New Quilt Kits

We’ve had lots of quilt-making going on lately!

IMG_7343Christie made this beautiful Flea Market Dash from Jen Kingwell’s Quilt Lovely.  It was quilted by Laura Davies.

IMG_7133Shirley made this gorgeous Homestead by Laundry Basket Quilts.  Also quilted by Laura Davies.

2015_09_13_0188Stop by the shop and ask Shirley to share her machine Dresden tricks. This Dresden, called “Bohemia”,  is a free pattern from Riley Blake.  Quilted by Jill Bowman.

We have patterns and kits for these at the shop.

Come stitch with us!

Mini skeins

2015_09_21_0200New on the shelf:  Wonderland Mini skeins in Cheshire Cat (fingering weight) and Mad Hatter (sport weight).  Love the colors!

After the initial, “ooh, pretty!” everyone wants to know,  “what can we make?”

Here are some suggestions.  I went to Ravelry, typed in “Mad Hatter Mini Skeins”  and here is a tiny sample of what I found.  Clicking on the picture will take you to the Ravelry page for its pattern.  All patterns can be purchased at Knit One Smock Too, which helps us keep helping you!

September Dream Club PLUS a Bonus!

This season’s first Dream Club selection is finally here!

Each month we receive a limited edition yarn and an exclusive pattern designed just for this yarn.  This yarn goes on sale the first day of each month an once it’s gone, it’s gone!  Call or stop by to pick up your skein(s) as soon as possible!

This month’s selection is Jilly, 440 yards of yummy 100% superwash merino.unnamed (1)

The pattern is  Something Autumnal,  a shawl by the wonderful Romi Hill: a beautiful, traditionally German, “Handtuch” shaped shawl with a slight curve to the edges which fits gracefully over the shoulders.

We have two versions of this yarn.  Color A is the tonal shown in the picture of the shawl.  Color B is a multi:

Here’s the bonus— we have 24 skeins of the newest colors in Dream in Color Classy with Cashmere.  These are NOT limited editions, which means you can order as much as you want!  With each purchase you get a free copy of this hat and cowl pattern, great for gifting or keeping yourself warm.  This yarn is SOFT.unnamed (2)

Happy September everyone!
