Civil War Sewing Circle

We just received a new book from Martingale that you quilting history buffs will love. The Civil War Sewing Circle by Kathleen Tracy is a fun book. It is sub-titled Quilts and Sewing Accessories Inspired by the Era. It has 16 easy projects including small and large quilts reminiscent of those made during the Civil War and patterns for a pincushion, sewing box and needle case. Along with the projects, learn a little history about women's efforts during that time. There are also photos and excerpts from letters written to and from soldiers during the Civil War and some interesting historical tidbits. Come in and check it out.

The Show Goes On!

Folks have been enjoying the our staff quilt show of Lone Star Quilts as they've come through the shop this week. Our staff had a great time selecting challenging patterns and planning their quilts. If you haven't gotten in to see the show, we are extending it for a few more days. We'll keep it hanging through the day on Wednesday January 12.
Take a peek at the slide show to see the quilts!
