First of all, The Long Valley Quilters would like to thank all of you who participated in our "For the Love of Mom" quilt show on May 7th. We were lucky with the weather and those who came really seemed to appreciate the endless hours that friends and relatives put into the keepsakes that span generations. It just proves how much love is out there if we just take the time to look for it.
Right after Mother's Day, Annie and I drove to Salt Lake City to attend Spring Quilt Market. Once again we were in awe of all the talented people that are producing exceptional new patterns, books, and fabrics. Just when we thought we had seen it all, there was more. Now I have many of those new books and patterns in the store so you can share in the excitement. I also have a new fabric collection by Riley Blake. It is called Sew Cherry and is billed as "Retro with a Twist". It is bright and cheery and I just finished making a little girl's dress, and a table runner using the collection. I think you will see how versatile the fabric can be. Patterns, books and embellishments are all waiting for you to check out.
For those of you who like batiks, I now have a few long awaited orders in and on the shelf. Now you have 300 bolts of batiks to choose from! I brought back quite a few new bag patterns and new leather bag handles that really make a purse look unique.
There are still some things that haven't arrived yet, so there will be new items arriving throughout the summer. I really encourage you to come in and see all the new, exciting ideas for yourself.
If you haven't already, take a peek at my classes page to see what's coming up this month!
