How is Halloween preparation coming in your house? My youngest has already been a zombie and a scary doll for the haunted courtyard, but now the "real" costume needs to be created... She stopped in the shop on Saturday for fabric for her "Queen of Hearts' skirt. She's got a good plan, but the sewing hasn't started. This could be a very "interesting" week! I hope you have your little (or not so little!) costumes completely finished - I can sense some panic sewing in our future!

See you soon - I'll be the one with scraps of playing card fabric stuck to my clothes,

If you have a 2016 QC date book, and you are a Halloween fan, you won't want to miss the October coupon. There are some fantastic pieces still available, even some of the ones Nancy used in her adorable Bunny Hill Halloween quilt. 

Please note ~ On Monday, October 31st, Halloween, Quilters Corner will close at 4:00pm. This will give our staff members time to get home before the monsters come out!
From Our Table
November 5th - 19th

I quilted and bound four table toppers yesterday. That makes me sound rather virtuous, but really it's panic setting in! Our From Our Table event starts in less than two weeks, and Quilt Market is in between. The entire staff is working like crazy to plan and stitch unique displays featuring fun fabrics and items from their personal collections. The push is on because this is our favorite way (with your help!) to support the local food pantry. During the display stop in to vote for your favorites - donations of food pantry items garner you ballots. There are prizes to be won and inspiration to be had - definitely a win, win!!! 

Holiday Open House
November 4th & 5th 

Lots of little gift items have arrived in the shop. They are tucked into fabric displays and featured on the counters. At the beginning of November we will add hand made gifts to the mix, in anticipation of our open house. Stop in on Friday and Saturday to enjoy the displays, nibble on some holiday sweets and to pick up your copy of the 2017 shop date book, which includes information and coupons for the coming year (a free gift during the event - one per guest please - available for $1.99 each after the open house). 
Scrap Gathering
Sunday ~ November 13th ~ 1:00pm

Our Scrap Happening turned into a Scrap Gathering when we realized you didn't actually want to give up any of your scraps, you just want more! So, on Sunday the 13th we will share tips for storing your scrap treasure trove, demonstrate techniques for some of our favorite scrap projects and lay out a mountain of scraps that you can dive right into. By dive we mean, fill a bag with splendid bits and pieces to add to your next projects. Space is limited - please register before November 7th. Fee: $5.00
New fabrics are everywhere - literally! 

Valorie Wells has really made a name for herself (outside of being part of the famous mother/daughter duo) in the fabric industry, and for good reason. Her eye for color, graphics and design are contemporary and fresh, and her newest line is no exception. "Marks" is a stunning, funky yet elegant, nature inspired collection. Bold silhouettes of birds in flight, large spiky ferns and modern mandalas mix with exquisite textural prints in two color ways; indigo and charcoal. We had the chance to see amazing samples created with the prints at Spring Quilt Market... we fell madly in love with the sleek chairs upholstered in the prints that were part of Valorie's booth. Looks like its time to head to the thrift store to find a worthy "rehab" candidate (right after I finish a quilt with the prints, of course!). Fabric $11.30 per yard

While it is always good to have a stack of solids on hand to use as accents in our quilts, sometimes a little more "punch" is called for. "Modern Mixers III" is a fantastic addition to the usual solids, marbles and polka dots. There are four-color ways to snag - brilliant cobalt, bright lime, cheery red and a cool steel. We love the large floral as a mixer or focus fabric, while the small beaded stripe and tone-on-tone dot and dash will add interest to your mix. The clear, bright hues are going to find their way into my future projects - especially that lime green! Fabric $10.20 per yard
