It was great to see so many customers and friends at the International Quilt Festival. We had so many people tell us how much they missed us being in Spring and we really miss the great friends we made during our time there. We had a GREAT show and can't wait to see everyone again. The booth was busy every day, even with all the construction and rain. I also taught four Knitting classes that week, it was so much fun. Check out our list of shows for 2016, we will be adding more as we get them finalized.
We had some great new projects that we previewed at the International Quilt Festival. This is a picture of the NEW Sundance Poncho made with 11 different Hen House Hand Dyed yarns and it includes the pattern, and speciality yarn, for $79.95. It was a big hit at the show.

We also added a lot of 1 & 2 yard fabric cuts, we had some great new lines that were very popular and we had all the backing fabrics for the quilts kits as well.
