  Happy Holidays Everyone!  My gift to you this holiday season a $100 gift card for someone and I will give you a $25 gift card for yourself!  Happy Holidays!  May your holiday season be filled with joy, love and peace!  karen steggerda

  Creekside Quilting's Community Service Project this holiday season was partnered up with Patrick Lose Studios in providing 7 bolts of fabrics to Western Homes Communities in Cedar Falls, Iowa. They wanted to do a Pillowcase Project, where this holiday season residents would have the opportunity to have a bright new pillowcase to cozy up their winter rooms!  They reached a goal of making 150 pillowcases in the month of October and selling them at their Annual Holiday Show and Sale on November 16th.  Creekside, Patrick, and the residents of Western Home Communities are all thrilled the project was such a great success and that it will bring much happiness to many, many people!

What's New @ Creekside Quilting?

  Barb has created the December Dresden and kits are available HERE!  I have just loved all of these tiny Dresdens, and each month I say, "Oh this one is my favorite!"  I hope no one every really makes me choose just one!

  Back by popular demand, these darling spray bottles will delight every quilter on our upcoming snowy days!  Great gift or stocking stuffer!  Order HERE

  This may be my new favorite book!  Quilting on the Go by Jessica Alexanddrakis has a lot of paper piecing projects in it that really are meant to be taken on the go.  She even explains and has pictures on what she carries with her and how she packs her project holder!  Order HERE

 Seems as though the fad right now is creating quilts that do not have the same block size throughout the quilt....this is another great tool book for finishing off blocks at a certain size!  I like to call these types of quilts "messy quilts" because there is no rhyme or reason to them, but they sure are beautiful, creative, and fun to look at!  This is a great book for all you Clothesline Club members!  :)  Order HERE

 Just a couple of fun fabrics by Jinny Beyer and RJR Fabrics, to add to our blender area.    Order HERE

  Does anyone realize how hard it is to keep the Iowa State fabric in stock!  Crazy!  Order on this page HERE  University of Iowa will be in the store later this's going to fly off the shelves also I have a feeling!  Good luck to both teams and their bowl competitions!

  This is a new kit from Moda called Sarah's Story!  Looks to be a little applique along with the piecing!  Look at all those basket blocks!  I love basket quilts....this would be a fun quilt to make...Order HERE

What's New in Our Wool Department?
