“Haberdashery” by Jo Morton has arrived at the THREADS

This 11-piece collection of light colors will work great for background for appliqué and piecing with other Jo fabrics!

Jo says, “I found some beautiful mill engravings that are the basis for this group, and also for the “Melodies” group, shipping next month. I love the soft beige and soft gray tones. I know quilters will love sewing with these and adding them to their fabric collection.”

Simple Whatnot Club debuts at the THREADS

Whatnot club

We are really excited to offer Kim Diehl’s first ever, “Simple Whatnot Club.”  Just wait until you see the fun projects designed for Club members featuring fabric from Kim Diehl’s Vintage Farmhouse Collection.

We’ll laugh, learn and be inspired by creative ideas that go along with each month’s theme. Our Club will feature six “do-able” little quilts (nothing greater in size than 40″ square) with traditional patchwork and a sprinkling of simple applique’ here and there. We’ll demo new techniques and provide you with additional patterns for fun small “Whatnots” that you can whip up in no time in the comfort of your own sewing space! We’ll have snacks, games and door prizes.

Sew, what’snot to like!

Cost of the Club is just $30 for six months of demos, patterns, tips/techniques and exclusive projects just for Club members.
Specially packaged kits will also be available for each month’s project for an additional fee.

The Simple Whatnot Club meets at 10 a.m. on the 4th Saturday of every month beginning August 23 and every 4th Saturday through February 2015. (No December Club). So. if you haven’t already, grab a couple of your friends and register today.
