Creekside Quilting Newsletter 06/04/2019

HELLLOOOOO All Shop Hoppers!  We have had a wonderful kickoff to the All Iowa Shop Hop and are thankful for each and everyone of you who have stopped in to say "hello"!  It has been a great treat to meet each of you, to hear about your travels, why you are shop hopping, where you have been, best stories and (hate to say this) but some unhappy experiences along the way also!  So is life, I guess!  But when you come to Creekside Quilting, we hope you find us a happy, fun, and welcoming place to visit!!!  I use to love to shop hop and see what all the stores are offering!  Each quilt store is so different and offers their own flavors!  I actually am going shop hopping next weekend with my daughter, I won't tell you what part of the state, because I am going "incognito!"  

What's New @ Creekside Quilting!
We have a lot of new things to talk about this week, so let's get started right away!

  We received this amazing Halloween Fabric in this past week!  I personally love the witches and think it would go well in our BQ4 pattern, which allows a large space for these great pictures!  Order BQ4 Pattern Order here  Order Timeless Treasures Grey Halloween Pumpkins C7020 here   Order Timeless Treasures Grey Wicked C7020 here

  We also took our new Halloween fabrics and created a few bundles of 12 fat quarters.  I used this bundle in creating our store sample from the pattern Yellow Brick Road   Order Yellow Brick Road Pattern here.  Order Halloween Fat Quarter Bundle Order Here

  Hometown Harvest is the pattern and the quilt is on loan to Creekside from The Quilt Company!  I met the mother/daughter design team down at the KC Market, and they agreed to send us the quilt for display!  It is made out of flannels and is hanging in our Wool Department.  Oder Hometown Harvest Pattern here

  We have a couple new bag patterns for the store.  This one Karen M is making a sample using RJR Wildwood Garden Party Canvas.  Order RJR Wildwood Garden Party Canvas here   Order Show Off Pattern here

  For all of you improvisational quilters or want-to-be's, this book is great in helping you get started with improvisational designs!  Order Intuitive Color and Design here

  Another new bag pattern...Jangles Anchor Bag...this purse is a little more classic than some of the other purse patterns we have in the store.  Searching for a new challenge or learning curve, I think this pattern would be just the pattern to satisfy your search.  Order Jangles Anchor Bag here
