Creekside Newsletter 09/04/2018
Welcome to Creekside Quilting Newsletter!
What's New @ Creekside?
Well, Labor Day has come and gone and I hope everyone had a great weekend! Here at Creekside, we are starting to think fall and just in time, comes the 101 Maple Street fabric line from Bunny Hill Designs. The fabric line has more of the muted fall colors and the accompanying patterns are darling for fall. There are 9 blocks in the main pattern, and there is the potential to at least have the quilt top done by Thanksgiving. What a festive decoration to add to your fall collection.
When these fabrics came in, Barb said, "Kitties, Hot Dogs, and Dino's...Oh My!"
You will find them in our novelty section towards the back of the store.
Mixing things up a little, we received new scents from Best Press!
Caribean Beach and Citrus Green. Of course, you can always request a bottle of the old favorite, lavender!
Christine Hobbs has a new pattern called Red Barn Buddies.
