New Amy Butler is here!!!

Okay, I know you have heard it before but this line is so...., you fill it in. It really is a must that you check it out. It is called Daisy Chain and comes in a couple of color ways. It would be perfect for quilts, bags, skirts and so on and so forth...., I know it will go fast so hurry in (before Jeanine snags it all up.)
I also heard from Lila Tueller and our Woodland Bloom is supposed to ship on September 29, (sheesh, nothing like waiting till the last day of the month) This is a much anticipated line from one of Moda's newest up and coming designers. We also have her line of patterns in the shop,
So you have lots of new to come in and check out!!

Late Night Sew and lots of Laughs

For those of you who don't know, Material Girls Quilts host a late night sew the 3rd Saturday of every month, it's open to anyone who wants to come and sew or, in my case laugh a whole lot!! I am usually the least productive at this event because I tend to talk alot, I know thats hard for you to believe but it is true. We had a really great turn out last night and want to tell everyone Thanks for coming! I will be posting my finished project here soon!!! It really is alot of fun and I am inviting all of you out there to stop by and say "HI" (my project would have been done but I had a dull xacto knife) I'll tell you about that later. But I am curious as to how many of you out there carry xacto knives in your car?
Have a great week!
