New Products........

 Halloween & Christmas fabrics are arriving (oh, yes!)

 Fabric shipments have been so unpredictable recently!  We're getting some fabrics early but most are months late.  I'm sure some of our fabrics were stuck on the ships impacted by the Suez Canal blockage & shut-down (I'm so glad that's been resolved!)  
So among the many fabrics we've received are partial collections of Glow Ghosts (Glow In The Dark fabrics for Halloween) & Holiday - Comfort & Joy including an Advent Calendar panel.  Pictured are 2 of the fabrics we did receive & more of these collections should be arriving soon.

Long-arm Quilting Service
We recently had a machine failure & had to wait for parts to arrive from UT (and Melissa quickly installed them for us - thanks, Melissa!).  So now the HandiQuilter is humming along beautifully. Bonnie & Melissa are busy at work getting us caught up.  If you were impacted - we're so sorry for the delay & we hope to have everything caught up & everyone's quilt ready for pick-up soon.  We are accepting quilt tops again, but we're still on a delayed schedule of about 5 weeks wait time.
