Let's Go Quilting!!


Greetings from Designer Fabrics

Hello, Everyone!

How is everyone's Winter wonderland today? Yesterday we had North Dakota's version of a snow globe! It was pretty at the time. Our yard was blown out this afternoon, so I'm good to go once again. This morning was a bit of a shocker with the negative temps... I guess it is Winter and North Dakota. Quite the combination! So indoors it is... That's quite alright as I have several quilting projects in progress and patterns to write... I've been having a bit of fun baking cookies and plan on making some goodies tonight for tomorrow and the shop! I'm hoping to accumulate enough that I have a tray of goodies for Christmas, and the majority get eaten at the shop. So far, I'm 0 for 2 for the goodie tray. Somehow they get eaten here as fast as I pull them out of the oven. That's okay, as I don't often take the time to bake multiples. Give me a single pan of bars any day and I'm good!

Stop on in for some coffee, cider, hot cocoa and some goodies! And if you need a gift, we have several to chose from for quilters or non-quilters alike! Our retired sample rack is always available (and very full). Keep in mind most of them are lap-size and smaller... (Usually the larger ones are kept by those who made them.) I might even add to the samples available when I get a chance! We also gift wrap your purchase upon request!

Upcoming events...December 10th~ Top Your Table Club- Grand Finale! Meeting to begin at 5:30pm. Must be present to win the Grand Door Prize!

December 12th~ Jim/Luke from Sewing Machines Plus will be here for machine service!

Greetings from Designer Fabrics

Hello, Everyone!

Home once again!! I'm thankful retreat season is taking a break until mid-January. But, that means I need to catch up on events and happenings in-store! And keep up with all of the new fabrics and freight that have been streaming into the shop... There is so much good stuff out there lately and I can't seem to help myself "share" everything I find! Or maybe I have just too many squirrel moments, as I wish I could make one of everything these days. Focus. Paint my kitchen? Bind a tree skirt? Bake cookies? Put up the tree? Sew a Cuddle blanket for my Grandma Jean? Embroider some towels for gifts? Laundry? Clean the garage? Too many options and time has a way of vanishing. So tonight I'm here with you, getting all excited once again to go into the shop and find more goodies to make the season sparkle!!

Upcoming events...November 26th-29th~ Thanksgiving Week Specials all week long! See store for posted details during the sale...

November 26th~ Designer Quilt Club- Meetings to begin at 6:00pm the LAST Tuesday of each month. "Cook's Choice" theme for this year... It could be a little bit of this, or a little bit of that... But mostly a whole lot of fun!!

November 28th~ Happy Thanksgiving! We will be CLOSED.

December 3rd~ Embroidery Club with Kathy- We will be working on our Christmas/Ginger projects.

New into the shop...
Blush and Blue
OMG! These gorgeous beauties are calling my name! Sorry, I might need more than the yard of each I nabbed... The free pattern download on Henry Glass's website was cute, but not near big enough for me- bed size. Shucks! So, I'm thinking I need to come up with something wonderful... Did you hear the cogs kick into overdrive? Me too.


Stiletto
Finally! The long awaited group from Basic Grey is in the house!! And they don't disappoint! I don't know how they keep getting better!?! Fabulous as always and are sure to fly off the shelves...


Love Is...
And last but not least, sweet kits in from Maywood Studios featuring Hannah Dale's Love Is... line! Such adorable little critters wonderful for anyone! The kit includes the fabrics and pattern to make a crib size quilt.



Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! We are very grateful for your patronage over the years! Stop in and check out our Thanksgiving Week Specials!! Coffee & goodies are always available while you shop... (or cider and hot cocoa!)




Have a great week!!

Until next time, Happy Quilting!!

Hello, Everyone!

The boys finished soybeans on Friday!! Yay! The corn is still out there, but they aren't too anxious to get out in the cold to get it. So there's a bit of thanksgiving spreading around here already!

So how is everyone's Christmas project lists coming? Mine, not so good. I am packing and heading to our last retreat of the year in Crystal Springs this weekend and am hoping the weather cooperates with everyone's travel plans! I will be working on several shop samples, and maybe pack a few Christmas projects just in case I blow through the others...

We've also added a few tone-on-tone blacks from Timeless Treasures! Why should the white fabrics have all the fun? Great textures to add to any project!


























































Tonga 106" Wide Batik
It's hard to find just the right backings at times... I have a few now that may work for the last block-of-the-month (Mineral Matrix) quilt we featured! So if you're in the market for wide backings, we have several to choose from!!






























Cuddle Prints
And last but not least, more new Shannon Cuddle, with more on the way- bold prints, soft textures, and a bit of glitter thrown in there!! What will they think of next??? I can't wait! Oh, and the Seal is even softer than the softest Luxe we have had!!

Hello, Everyone!

I've been a bit distracted this morning to the sights and sounds of combines running outside next to my house today! Yay! It's been a few weeks since the boys have been able to get anything off the fields. It was in the teens this morning when I heard them fire up and it has rebounded into the lower 30's. Let's hope they don't find themselves in the mud troubles everyone else has been having around here... I feel like I should be out there getting my last mowing in that I never had a chance to do. Leaves continue to fall and the snowbanks are still shrinking. Then I am reminded of how cold it is outside and decide the inside work will continue. That's alright. I need to stay on task today...

I wasn't able to make it to the Badlands Retreat due to the weather, but did manage to get out to Richardton to vend for a group of ladies a week ago. We had a great time and managed to get quite a bit done! I'm gearing up for a full house at Crystal Springs in a few weeks and need to organize my projects to work on. We have had several new samples and piles of fabric/notions/patterns make their way into the shop in the last couple of weeks. Stop on in and check it out if you're in the area!!

Upcoming events...October 29th~ Designer Quilt Club- Meetings to begin at 6:00pm the LAST Tuesday of each month. Cost for the year is $19.00. "Cook's Choice" theme for this year... It could be a little bit of this, or a little bit of that... But mostly a whole lot of fun!!

Hello, Everyone!

Well, sounds like this will be our Indian Summer through Tuesday, then the Winter weather advisories are to begin... Please keep your local farmers in your thoughts as there is a lot of crops left out there to come off. So, perfect quilting weather, right? Time to stock up and get your projects cut out! I'm getting ready to attend the Badlands Quilt Retreat in Medora this weekend, and cutting my projects out is on my to-do list. I am quite excited to partake in a retreat and having mixed feelings of not having to haul a trailer load to set up... I have picked out 2 of the 3 projects for the classes I am taking, getting my bags packed, and feel like I am already forgetting something. Maybe when I haul as much as I do, I bring more than I need because I may be the one needing something! I won't have my safety net with me, so I may be bringing more than I actually need- just in case. I'm hoping it all fits in the Outback. My husband will be surprised that I'm not bringing a packed trailer, or maybe I should put all of my stuff in it... ;-) He knows I'm going to Medora, just not as a participant... I left that little nugget out. I love going to retreats. I get the chance to actually sew. The bonus is all of the wonderful people with similar creative passions who get to be there with you! The sharing of completely diverse but similar projects giving you a glimpse into each and every person creating them. And being able to visit with each one there. The common ground ties us each together and makes everything that much brighter! If you haven't participated in a retreat, I highly recommend them!

4-H
At long last, new in from Riley Blake Designs are a few 4-H pieces! Our family has been involved in 4-H for many years, and I was so happy to come upon this fabric!!


Shimmer & Radiance
New Shimmer and Radiance Artisan Spirit from Northcott just in... I am in love with the project that this group is getting made into! This is so much better in person with a touch of silver metallic! Can't wait to show you the finished quilt!! Stay tuned...


Wildflower Bouquet
New in from Heather Mulder Peterson from Anka's Treasures! So far we managed to get the FQ bundles and a couple of the pieces. I'm hoping the rest of the order will be delivered in November... they must have underestimated the popularity of this line. We also have her latest book with many of the projects using her fabrics!


Tonga Batiks
And last but not least, we have a shelf full of new batiks from Timeless Treasures! They are gorgeous!! My mind keeps trying to find new projects to feature them in...







Have a great week!!

Until next time, Happy Quilting!!

Hello, Everyone!

Happy Fall!! A bit of good news... Last Friday Megan let me go wedding dress shopping with her! And we were in luck and I made it home safely! A bit of bad news, we ended up getting close to 6" of rain that washed out the highway and submerged my gravel road to Carrington. So I have been somewhat stranded on a deserted island... as Rett says... but we have been with electricity and the fridge is stocked, so it hasn't been too bad here. Our sump pump is still running every 8 minutes and we live on a hill, but it's better than the ever minute 8 seconds it was on Saturday! I did hear that my gravel road is now above water, hence the traffic going by my house, and the pickup is getting pulled out so the road crews can rebuild the wash out. The culvert was most likely blocked by a round bale so that made the water find an alternate route taking the road with it. Oh such excitement around here! I will be back in action tomorrow in time for Club. I hope everyone had the chance to sew a Jelly Roll this weekend!! As for me, I'm on the road again this week! Stop in and see me at Crystal Springs if you are in the area Thursday-Sunday!

Hello, Everyone! 

Well, Fall is upon us and a few special blooms have been cheering up my spent gardens. Kind of a last hurrah. Sad, but I know the season changes bring on new challenges for me. Retreat season is here with our first beginning this Thursday! I am in need of a few more days to prepare myself, and that doesn't include tomorrow or Wednesday... But that seems to be the case every event we take part in. That's just part of the game I play. Time to get busy and jump in with both feet! Ready or not, here I come! 

Fall is a great time to revamp my sewing room. Time to pause and take a true inventory of what I can work on at retreats, or just simply needs to get finished for a Guild UFO. The closets are full, and have been for years, but sometimes I just forget what treasures I have behind closed doors! Maybe this year, I can make a list of projects set aside that haven't made it to my UFO lists. Challenge accepted, maybe after I get this first retreat under my belt!

Hello, Everyone! 

Well, where do I begin... Sorry this email is getting out a week later than anticipated... My Alex ended up with a partially collapsed lung a week ago Saturday and I met him at the hospital in Fargo as I was at mom's for my class reunion since Friday. Since then I have been sitting in the hospital with him, or fetching food for us, and staying in a hotel almost every night. We are hopefully turning a corner and getting sprung tomorrow morning after the x-ray gets read and the doctors make their rounds. Thankfully, Todd brought my laptop down so I could try to get some work done when things were quiet, of which didn't happen until today after his chest tube was pulled. He is resting comfortably and I can be pretty quiet. Poor kid... Good thing I didn't know what I wanted to wear to the reunion as I packed extra clothes... I did manage to go to mom's one night and wash clothes so I could last the rest of the duration, but I'm running out once again. It will be good to get home. Todd has been holding down the fort, when he hasn't been down here, with picking an overabundance of veggies for me to tackle when I get home. So, if you are in need of slicing cucumbers and can pick them up at the shop, let me know... he's been picking a 5 gallon bucket every couple of days! He's getting the beans ready for me to can maybe on Wednesday if time allows... And don't get me started on the zucchini! 

Thank you to everyone who picked up all my slack at the shop and didn't skip a beat so I could be here... I owe you all!! 

Upcoming events... August 6th~ Stop in and pick up your #12 Block of the Month step! Bev would like to have a demo/talk about the remaining steps of the quilt at 4:30.*********Note Time Change!!! and ***Designer Quilt Club will be meeting at 6:00

Hello, Everyone! 

Figured I'd better get this going this morning early as I have a trip to the vet in store for me after dinner... Finn can't get up as easily as she used to. So it's time to take her in and see what's up. Just last week she was acting a bit peculiar when I would go out for walks. She would lay down on the road at the beginning of the walk and be there when I came back. The week before she went for walks and one in particular, came home and dropped two duck eggs at the end of the driveway. Who knows how far she carried them! They were in tact until she scooped them up and dropped them on the gravel the second time. "Look what I found!!" staring me in the face with her tail a wagging... 

Jake still goes with me sniffing out everything along the way, but I see him looking back wondering if Finn is catching up. Today she doesn't even want to stand. Poor thing. I called the vet and they thought maybe the start of arthritis. I can so relate. Let's hope that it is something treatable. The pups will be 8 years old July 13th and are brother/sister. Oh, and speaking of birthdays... my Alex turns 26 today!! Bah humbug!! I'm getting old...

Hello, Everyone! 

Hope everyone is having a great Memorial Day! Remembering the reason for the season today & every day. Thank you to all those who gave up their lives to keep us safe and let us live our everyday lives! You are not forgotten. 

With Summer nipping at the heels of Spring, hopefully the weather can make up it's mind soon. So far anything outdoors for me has been on hold, and my time has been spent quilting or planning for this Summer's events! Which isn't all bad. I did manage to finish a couple of projects for my niece's graduation and crammed in a quilt club project recently... It's only going to be downhill from here (Ya right), maybe for May. As the calendar gets ready to turn another page, the roller coaster begins for another month, and I've been trying to incorporate some "Special Days" into our lineup.

Kringle & Claus
Ready for it... Christmas is in full swing! Let's just hope the weather doesn't get the memo... New in are pieces of Basic Grey's latest group Kringle & Claus! (The precuts have yet to arrive...) 





























Cuddle Digital Print
And last but not least, this beautiful piece from Shannon Fabrics trickled in! We are planning on pairing it with the gorgeous cardinal panel we have in stock! They have come a long way from when cuddle/minkee first hit the stores! Now they are digitally printing on cuddle! And the result is just stunning! 



Have a great week!! 

Until next time, Happy Quilting!! Jackie

Hello, Everyone! 

Back from Fargo... what a great show! We had a little hiccup with the laptop crashing before Saturday's opening, so I am behind the eight ball trying to get my old laptop up and running and equipped with everything I need to run this ship. Today has been a bit frustrating and rewarding... All of my new to come pics I saved once upon a time didn't get transferred to the USB stick so I have had to redo everything that has come into the shop the last couple of weeks. On the other hand, I was able to retrieve all of Friday's transactions from the Fargo Show! Whew! I was beginning to have the girls start to do inventory on each department so we could get them up to date in the shop. Ugh! I am very thankful for my computer minded son of mine for having the knowledge and capability of getting my hard drive information off the crashed laptop! I am not tech savvy, and am challenged severely when things don't work. I still have several things to get back up and running, but I'll tackle them as they are needed. For now, we will concentrate on keeping up with the fabrics that are flowing into the shop over the next month or so... If you didn't get a chance to check out our latest samples/kits at the Fargo Show, stop in as it may be a bit until I get them uploaded to the website. I first need to find/retake all of the pictures. Wish me luck! 

All the NEW items into the shop & the Events reminders are being posted so you can keep track of us on Facebook! Just in case you don't have extra time to peruse the website & want a general overview of what has been happening!! I'll try & post pictures of our whereabouts when possible!!

Hello, Everyone! 

April Fools!! Let's hope this will be the finale of late Winter for 2019... 

On a better note... we have been busy bees at the shop readying ourselves for the Fargo Show this weekend!! New samples are getting crossed off my list every day! I would love to finish at least two more samples before I head out, but I haven't even started them. And with Quilt Club tomorrow, the chances are getting slim. I have a feeling our booth will be overflowing with projects hot off the press and new to the shop! So I apologize now for it being slightly more that full.

Hello, Everyone! 

Sounds like Spring is in a holding pattern for this week... So out for a walk a couple of times I went today. I was hoping the colors of the sky would be as awesome as I saw them in real life! What a difference a week makes. We still have some huge snow mounds in the yard and tree rows, but they are shrinking. Yay! Now if the weather stays south of us. I may need to go somewhere there is better weather if it gets close... Richardton, you'd better have good weather!! 

With a couple of retreats taking up my time away from the shop, I did a bit of Spring cleaning as promised and there is a bigger collection in the clearance! Tomorrow or Wednesday I have plans to add more bolts back there too! We have tons of new fabric coming in and I need more empty shelves to accommodate them!

And we just can't seem to have enough basics... so new in are a few bolts of Concrete also from Moda. 



Vibrant Garden
A couple of pieces that caught my eye were from this group by Lynnea Washburn for Robert Kaufman. Whether you keep the panel whole, or pick up several and make yourself a stunning stack & whack quilt, you can't go wrong!! 

Also from Robert Kaufman, new batiks


Little One 2
This sweet group of nostalgia is sure to make a child's favorite quilt! Odd story on this group as I was entering it online... In elementary school, I had a classmate- Rebecca Baer. I remember her well as we were a couple of the youngest in the class with Summer birthdays. She moved somewhere in the years before junior high and we lost contact. Fast forward to a few years ago, through Facebook, I was in touch with her once again. Sadly, she had a tragic accident and is gone. The designer of this Little One 2 group is also Rebecca Baer. I'm grateful for the reminder of the memories of her that I keep. 


Fat Quarter Bundles
And last but not least, bundles and pre-cuts of all kinds!! 




Have a great week!! 

Until next time, Happy Quilting!! Jackie

Hello, Everyone! 

Well, vacation is over... Time to get back into the real world and retreat-mode! Paperwork and bindings have been on my counter for the last week and I'm tackling as much as I can. New samples are in the shop, taxes are done, pattern is written for tomorrow, the sun is shining... It's going to be one get-r-done kind of a week! It's amazing what a little sunshine can do for the soul.

And we will be taking up Food Pantry donations this month. Remember your dues for the year (if you haven't paid them), UFO's for show & tell, and (4) items to play our game... We will be meeting around 6:15ish at the shop!

April 30th~ Designer Quilt Club 

New into the shop...







































Sweet Violet
New in from Jan Patek for Moda are these lovelies!! Makes me want to get out in the gardens and grow some new blooms! For now I will just piece them... Precuts are available!! 









































Sweet Pea & Lily
Another stunning group from one of my all-time favorite designers, Robin Pickens for Moda. I am a huge fan of her fabrics and designs!! Get ready for Summer projects! 


Puppy Pals Flannel
This sweet group of flannels is happy and full of energy!! The panel is a full yard and can easily be paired with one or two borders, or left alone for a self-binding receiving blanket! 





























 
Cuddle Luxe
And last but not least, more Cuddle!! This one reminds me of Easter eggs!! It isn't difficult to understand why the wall is ever-growing with the vast selection Shannon Cuddle offers! 


Stay warm and have a great week!! Bring on Spring! 

Until next time, Happy Quilting!! Jackie
