From Northcott, we have Heavy Metal by Linda Ludovico.

Settle into your favorite sewing space with your favorite Zoom-compatible technology for 2 hours of stitching and chatting.  This month, Karey Harriman is the guest speaker, and her topic is “Feedsacks and what Grandma did with them”. It’s a fascinating look into a bit of domestic history.

Kat is once again teaching Scrap Petal Garden!  This popular quilt features fusible applique petals on a traditionally pieced background, and has endless opportunities for fabric use!

We have free pillowcase kits available!  We donate all pillowcases to Ryan's Care for Smiles, who in turn distributes them to children battling serious illness.  Pick one up next time you're in the shop, then complete it and return on your schedule. 

We also have free small kennel quilts available.  These little quilts are sent to shelters who take in pets displaced by natural disaster.  To quilters, they are a great beginner project, a use for leftover fabric, and a place to practice free motion skills.  To use your stash, visit
