Fall Stitching is Almost Here

End of Summer / Fall Stitching:

Can you believe it?  It is the middle of August already. Some schools are already open for classes and soon, very soon Halloween decorations will be going up.  Summer has flown by so quickly this year.

Are you ready for Fall stitching?  In a couple of weeks the JCS Halloween Magazine will be here and stitchers will be showing their WIPS and ornies for all to see.  That for me is the best part.  Seeing the designs come to life and the creativity in finishing techniques.

Quilting and Sewing Notions

Our passion for quilting and accessories has only grown the past few months.  Accuquilt is creating quite a stir with their Accuquilt Go! Baby and for a stitcher who can't cut a straight line with a rotary cutter (that's me!) the Accuquilt is very enticing.

So, what do you think about the Accuquilt Go! Baby and their line of dies?  Please let us know. 
We may decide to pick up a few of them for the shop, but want to hear UNBIASED reviews from stitchers / quilters like you.


If you haven't pre-ordered your JCS Magazines yet, the PRE-ORDER sale is still on for a few more days!

Thanks for dropping by!
