Let's Go Quilting!!


Greetings from Designer Fabrics

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. But, I just want to share everything with you!! Hope to see you soon! In fact, stop into see me at the show and bring in a coupon found HERE and get 15% off one item!

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!

New into the shop...
Limoncello
New in... A lovely group from Benartex! They have a bit of pearl shimmer to them also for an added bonus! Also in are a few pieces of Dragonfly Dance from Benartex! 

A few new bolts of Later Alligator from Sandy Gervais for Moda. 

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. 

I'm in the mood to do a bit of Spring Cleaning! At home and at the shop... Maybe this week will be your lucky week to find new treasures in the clearance at the shop. I need to make room for the NEW arriving!! Stop in and check it out!
