Well – - – Winter showed up in a big way here in south central Minnesota. First the snow, then the wind and now the dropping temperatures. Can’t think of a better thing to do than sew. My personal sewing area is well lit and warm with windows through which I can enjoy the beauty of winter. The classroom/sewing area at The Noble Quilter is similar – a great well-lit place to sew with huge windows to enjoy the beauty of the season without actually being in it. Remember for $5.00 you can use the classroom to sew up a “storm”. Call ahead and make sure the classroom is free, then grab a friend or two and come in and get your work done. What a great way to spend a winter day or two (or more).
Of course, it is December. Many of us have sewing in progress for gifts, but if you are looking for just that right something for someone, let me see if I can help:
I am in the process of completing a Blueberry Backroads design and will be done in plenty of time to gift it. Plus I am enjoying doing it. There are several Blueberry Backroads and Red Button Quilt Co. patterns to choose from at the shop.
Do you have a new baby in your life or expecting one soon? Just look at A Frog’s Life panel combined with bean counter Quilts Bouncing Borders pattern. This quilt is kitted and ready for you to start sewing. It could easily be done by Christmas.
Crazy Christmas Flan comes with the panel pictured. You could use the coordinating fabrics and quickly make a soft, cozy quilt by just adding borders. It would certainly be appreciated. My friend chose not to use the panel but used the pattern Turning Twenty and all the coordinating fabric. When she finished it, I was wishing I was the friend who is going to receive it (but, alas, it is for someone else).
There are also lots of notions etc. to want or to give to others.
Gift certificates are available and will come wrapped. The Noble Quilter will also keep a wish list for you, if you would like that. Come into the store and let us know what it is you really want to receive. We will do our very best to pass it along to the right people in your life.
Just a reminder that The Noble Quilter has several boards on Pinterest. You can access it by clicking on the button below. There are some really fun and cute Christmas ideas there also. Take a look.
Let us move forward in our sewing and enjoy.
As Always Here to Serve You,
