We have an empty classroom on Tuesday October 23 and I hate an empty classroom, the store is too quiet! So..... Why not have a pop up shop with lots of fabric bundles, notions, patterns and books that sometimes get overlooked while shopping at the store. What is a Pop Up Shop - well we are about to find out! This is a limited time event where the classroom table will be filled with items you may or may not have seen in the store before, buried treasures, items I have had from previous quilt markets etc. Some fun finds, some nice bargains, some "can't go home without this" items!

Please note the time and date!

Tuesday October 23

9 - 12 only!!!

Northern Threads Patterns

Wilderness Ridge Series

Just Arrived!


If you fell in love with Northern Wilderness or any of the patterns from this talented Alaskan designer, you will want to add this series of patterns to your list of Quilts you want to make!I am hoping to start mine in the next few months so I can happily work on it while the snow falls around us (there is always something uniquely positive about snow falling outside, while we happily sit inside our sewing room!)This will also be on our list of Block of the Month classes in our January schedule. 

They are also available as laser cut, pre-fused pieces, but isn't the cutting and tracing half the fun?!

 Individual patterns $19.95

Complete series $199 (11 patterns)

Please call or email for laser cut pricing.



Soft Fuse


SOFT FUSE PREMIUM Paper backed Fusible web, that is just so soft! Easy to use, place over a design and trace, iron to wrong side of fabric, and cut out design on traced line. Remove paper backing leaving the fusible on the back of the fabric. Position applique, face up, glue side down, and iron again to fuse the applique into place. Finish along edges as desired.I love the soft finish and it doesn't gum up my needle like other fusibles.

18" x 3yd roll $24.95


Just a hint though, if you do find your needle skipping stitches or getting gummed up, use a few drops of Sewer's Aid. It is a miracle cure for so many problems! I also use it on threads that break or shred. Just squeeze some of this miracle liquid onto the spool of thread. It won't stain or discolour your thread, and it will be amazingly cooperative!

$7.95 bottle


A new product allowing those of us who love to applique (who doesn't like to applique???!!) with a non slip surface to place our pattern and pieces on. We have usually recommended a teflon sheet or parchment paper, but those tend to shift a bit everytime we place a piece of material on them. Fusamat stays in place! Now your pattern will stay where you want and won't shift a bit here and there distorting your placement. The mat is easy to see through making it perfect for tracing pieces for hand or machine applique. Fusamat can be rolled or folded for easy storage.


The mat comes in two sizes, Fusamat 1 12 x 12" $49.95and Fusamat 2 12 x 18" $79.95This week, take $5 off the regular price!Here is a video of with the creator of Fusamat showing how easy it is to use.Click here to watch the video

Pineapple Trim Tool

During Shop Hop, Laurie was one of our Daily Demo Divas. She showed us how easy it is to use the Pineapple Trim Tool to make a quilt or a bag. This is a perfect project for scrap lovers, as you just need to have lots of strips ready to sew. Since you trim each time, accuracy is not needed! Just stitch, press and trim.Laurie also used this pattern to make a wonderful tote bag, the pattern is just $5.00 or check out the book with so many projects and inspiration, you'll want to start digging through your stash today!Watch the video to see how easy it is or drop by the store for a demo in the Wed. Oct 17 anytime between 9 -12. We will have lots of samples to try!

Enchanted Forest Flannel - Northcott

You have to feel this fabric to believe how lovely and soft the flannel is! Create a cozy quilt for anyone in the family and they will be wrapped up all winter.

The Enchanted Forest collection features rabbits, deer, fox and owls amid a winter scene. We have kitted two options for you to make a lap size quilt. Choose from Wanda's design with staggered blocks of flying geese surrounding the panels, or an attic window classic approach. This pattern eliminates the mitred seam, making it a simple process to achieve the corner seam! Choose either kit, just $89.95

Add a co-coordinating flannel backing for an additional $49.95
