Our Quilters Weekend Retreats continue to be successful with Kim hosting the weekends in April and in November each year. Quilters come with either a project of their own to work on or something that Kim is teaching. In November, Kim taught a collage quilt pattern that was a bit artsy and a lot of fun. This coming May 4th-6th she is hosting a knitting weekend and will invite quilters as well.Read More

We hosted two phenomenal quilting weekends in November. The first weekend was a 3-4 day retreat (Nov 11-14) for open sewing and the completed projects were amazing. We are going to continue this new tradition of a long quilting weekend over Veteran's Day 2017 so mark your calendars!Read More
The History of 'APRONS'
I don't think our kids know what an apron is. The principle use of Grandma's apron was to protect the dress underneath because she only had a few. It was also because it was easier to wash aprons than dresses and aprons used less material. But along with that, it served as a potholder for removing hot pans from the oven.
