So... As you start this edition we are furiously readying ourselves for a cross-country flight to the Road to California Quilter's Conference. It's going to feel great to be in sunny southern California for a week so if you're somewhere close to this area we'd love to see you at this fun show! We're making a big change to our booth for the first time in over 3 years so stop by and we'll show you! So with that I'll get back to packing while you get started! 

It's a New Year! 
which seems like the purrfect time to join us on a Social Media site or two because its here that we make announcements & conduct flash sales first. As a matter of fact, just this week we posted the initial sketch and inspiration for what will soon be our next design! Check it out HERE
We're currently posting regularly on FaceBook, Instagram, Pinterest and in on our FaceBook Group site, which is a great place to post pictures of your finished bags and even get help or advice when you're in a pinch... no matter what time of day, which is purrfect for you sewers out there who are just getting started on your project until midnight or after!

Ever wondered why the “hair of the dog” is a hangover cure, why a bird in the hand is worth “two in the bush” and who decided “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”? Some sayings are now so commonplace, we’ll utter them with no idea of where they came from. Click HERE to find out more!
