                                    SHARYNN'S QUILT BOX

Isn’t spring wonderful? All the beautiful colors of nature just inspire us with new ideas for sewing and quilting. We have lots of new fabric coming in every day in beautiful shades of pink, green, blue, purple, and yellow. We are in heaven coming up with projects for all these beautiful fabrics.

Down on the Farm from Blank Textile features farm scenes and tractors. This fabric is perfect for that man in your life or son or grandson. This also has coordinating fabric to enhance your quilt, throw or blanket.        

Poseidon’s Playground is also from Blank Textiles and is just perfect of that child on your list. It too comes with coordinating fabric. These fabrics would make a wonderful “rag” quilt for that special grandchild or new baby.    

New this week from Robert Kaufman –Lumina 2 collection. Ladies, this is an awesome collection of fabrics in purples, blues, golds and teal. These have to be seen. Come in soon. We think these will go fast.

UPDATE on New Location

A larger store “front” with lots more space for more fabric, notions, patterns, and of course our wonderful Janome sewing machines and Handi Quilter’s.
