Hello, hello! Thanks for all your sweet comments about Henry’s arrival. We’re enjoying lots of snuggles and trying to sneak in naps when we can (easier said than done, what with the two older ones who seem to always know the exact moment I’ve closed my eyes!)

Today I have a giveaway for you thanks to my local quilt shop, Nido. Nido is owned by Phiona, who is now a great friend (another reason to love your local quilt shop!). While I don’t get to town to visit the shop as often as I’d like, I love knowing that Phiona’s shop is there. It’s really nice to be able to see fabrics in person (though that also often causes me to buy more than I intended!), and it’s also fun to have a chance to chat with others who love fabrics. This Saturday happens to be Visit Your Local Quilt Shop Day, too, so if you’re local, I’d urge you to stop in to Nido (or take a visit to your own local quilt shop!). Nido will be offering an extra 20% off all bundles, and all purchases over $75 will also receive a great Nido tote bag.
Phiona has recently reduced the per yard pricing on her quilting fabrics too, so you’ll find it won’t cost more to shop in person. All quilting cottons are now $8.25/yard, both in the shop and online.
In addition to a great fabric (and yarn!) selection, Phiona also offers a number of great classes and has also organized some really special workshops (most recent workshops included one with Anna Graham and also one with April Rhodes).
Next month Heather Jones will be in town to offer her Improvisational Linework and Design Workshop. There are a couple spaces left in this February 6th workshop, so be sure to contact Nido if you’d like more information or to sign up.
In July, Carolyn Friedlander will offer two workshops – Ebb and Outhouse: Beginner Hand Appliqué + Beginner Paper Piecing Full-Day Workshop on July 16th and Everglade: Full-Day Advanced Hand Appliqué Workshop on July 17th. Sign up for one or both!
