Week of September 10, 2017 – Central Asian Quilts

Today is September 10 and it is my precious little granddaughter’s first birthday!  What fun we will have celebrating.  Speaking of celebrating, last weekend I went with my girlfriend Linda Rhodes to Lincoln, NE for a road trip to see the Edyta Sitar’s exhibit at the Quilt House.  Her quilts were absolutely beautiful but what a surprise when we saw the Central Asian Exhibit.  I had no idea I would admire them as much as I did.  If you have a chance to get there to see them in person before they go down on December 16, I encourage you to do so.

I know I have been accused of loving tiny blocks – either half square triangles or flying geese but the people who made these went beyond my wildest expectation.  If you can enlarge the photo of this stack of pillows you will see the little black and white geese.  They can’t be more than 1/4” wide and 1/8” tall.  The applique and piecing workmanship is incredible.

I love their use of vibrant reds set off with black and white.  It makes such a striking design.  This second photo makes it hard to see but what appears to be red blocks are really itty bitty pineapple blocks.

This third photo shows six small dowry bags which might be filled with soap, needles, thread, thimbles or a hairbrush.  What a lovely item in which to put your things!

This next quilt from Uzbekistan shares a lot of resemblance to a Western or American design.  The biggest difference is  read more...

NEW LACE KNITTING CLASS SERIES:

Master lace knitting one section at a time!




This is the 3rd series of building blocks classes from Michelle “Knit Purl” Hunter.  Legions of knitters have completed projects using her earlier books, Building Blocks and Building in Color. We offered a Building in Color Series of Classes, taught by Jan Malone, and now Jan is excited to be your guide through this series of lace knitting classes.

This book and class series are designed to take the casual or beginning lace knitter to an experienced level.  Beginning with lace basics, you’ll move through the major lace techniques in a sequence that makes sense.

You’ll knit a gorgeous sampler shawl as a wearable showcase of your lace skills.  Each section focuses on a technique to broaden your understanding of this genre, and builds on the skills you’ve learned in prior lessons.  The sections include classic favorites, original designs, and even some beading!

Join in for one or all of the classes.  They are $20 each.  We’ll meet weekly, but there are some catch up skipped weeks built in too:  Classes are Saturday afternoons from 2:30 to 4:30

The first class is on Saturday, September 16th.  Click to see the complete schedule and give us a call to register!

Hi Everyone!

Although the days are still pretty warm, Fall is definitely in the air. Quilting, Knitting and Crocheting are pulling us indoors!  To add to that feeling, we have received so much new yarn and fabric recently that it's downright exciting!  If you follow us on Facebook and/or Instagram, you've seen photos of all the new fabric this past week - and yarn-wise, here are just a few new arrivals:

Regia Pairfect Sock Yarn - designed so you can easily knit two matching, patterned socks...so cool!

Kraemer Perfection Chunky in soft, marled colors
Also, to add to the Kraemer Perfection worsted weight that's been so popular - there is a new collection of "tapas" colors.

Did you know Zauberballs are available in 100% cotton now? They are fabulous! We sold out of a couple already - but more are arriving this week!

Rylie, that fabulous blend of baby alpaca, mulberry silk and linen is just dreamy - and the perfect yarn for this transitional time of year.  It's also the feature yarn for our Building with Lace Series that starts this week. Restock due in this week also!!  

Oh - so what's on sale for Letter S?  Yarn-wise is a SALE ON SALE YARN!  Yes - everything that is already on sale will be discounted another 25%!
