We're so glad you're here!
What’s New @ Creekside Quilting?
It’s so much fun receiving boxes of new fabrics or notions! Feels like Christmas every week in the store, and I love it! Always something new to put in the newsletter!
So, sticking with the Christmas in July theme this week, let’s talk stocking stuffers! Over the past week, we received two fun items, that would make a great addition to your stocking stuffers!
First, we have the American Patchwork and Quilting 2019 Calendar, where each month has a pattern for a quilt. The pictures are gorgeous and the directions seem straight forward. Now, there’s a New Year’s Resolution…a quilt a month!
Next are these adorable, yet very sharp, embroidery scissors! They are cute, festive, and fun! I might add these as the bow to a gift for a friend instead of sticking them in a stocking. Just saying, might want to be careful putting your hand in a stocking with that sharp point….OUCH!
We received another order of Quilt Sampler, for those of you who were wanting to purchase one. The Piece Works in Winterset is one of the featured stores in the magazine. Please stop in and pick one up.
