New Kit and Yarn, Yarn and More Yarn!

Hilma finished up a new mini kit for us...this one features all sorts of trucks and tractors and would make a great little gift for a boy.

Here is the link to buy it online for only $7.99: Trucks Mini Kit

Did you know that all of our kits contain all the fabric including the backing and binding?

We had a fun day in the shop today with a group of ladies...including one all the way from Wales ... working on a puzzle quilt with Irene Dewar. They made tremendous progress and the quilts were absolutely adorable.

While they were working on the puzzle quilts I was busy trying to display all the yarn. We tried the shelves, baskets, even some modified sono tubes but in the end it was Fred (he's our Dad) to the rescue and he is going to build us a great set of cubby holes to house the yarn to its best advantage. While he works on that it will have to be yarn chaos for a bit longer!

In the meantime let me introduce Stomp from Lana Gatto!

Stomp is a classic superwash sock yarn that is made in Italy. It is soft enough for a baby's skin yet has the durability necessary to function as an everyday work sock. It has a broad and wonderful color range--and the best news? It is only $10.99 per skein (large enough to do a pair of socks). It is in stock and ready to ship ... I will get it (and the other yarn) up on the website ASAP.
