Hi Everyone! Our Feather Tree class is almost full - room for 1 or 2 more, so call now if you want a space. This tree can be used for Easter, Memorial Day and 4th of July and Christmas. It's very versatile.

The 11th house in the Anniversaries of the Heart series is in from Blackbird Designs. Evergreen Lane is here. The 12th one is to be released next week at the Nashville Market along with A Stitcher's Journey. Packed full of their teaching projects at retreats in 2010, this book weighs in at 52 pages.

Every day we go out searching the web for new designs showing up at Market. We've got quite a list, growing everyday. Designers use this venue to issue new charts. One designer sent me a note, announcing that she would have 10 new designs at market. Of course, this time of year always means new floss overdyed colors- new Weeks, Gentle Arts, Threadworx and Crescent Colours, floss and Belle Soie silks. New fabric colors usually come out at this time. Picture this Plus sent us new color swatches and we've ordered in a couple new overdyed colors from them.

Handblessings did the Piece/Peace Makers Quilt last year. A free pattern each month of quilt patterns. This year she has announced she will be doing the Baltimore Garden Quilt. This is an adaptation of the Baltimore quilt applique designs of the 1840's. It's a block of the month series enhanced with or without charms. I'm quite anxious to see it as I've always been partial to Baltimore style quilts. We will be carrying the free patterns as they are released and charm packs and, of course, the fabric and thread to stitch it. Give us a call or shoot an email if you want to be added to the list for this free series.

Well, time to start checking for new releases. Check back for more news!
