Just Keep'n in Touch!

Hi All! Hope you all will stop by and check things out! There is some new flannel in the shop and Susan Freeman was kind enough to make a BQ quilt out of it to show it off. There are several kits made up in the flannel to make decisions easier for you !
I did bring in some more neutral colored spools of Aurifil for those of you that just-gotta-have-it.
Lots of little holiday gift ideas around the store for that special quilter. Please take time to check out the store website at There is a class & event calendar so you can keep up with classes as they are added. You can also sign up for them online and pay any fee that is applicable through PayPal.
Karla Singer is coming to teach Cotton Theory quilting on October 6, Thursday. Hope you can make it. This is a quilt as you go method.
Mona Wynn and her daughter Brenda Smith are teaching a purse class on Sat. Oct. 15th . These ladies are very talented and I am very excited that they decided to teach this class. There are several examples of their work in the store.
Corinne Echols will be teaching a ongoing wedding ring quilt class starting Oct 1st.
Please check the store website for more details.
The shop will be closed Oct. 20th and the 29th so please make a note on your calendar.
This is kinda a mid-way point of the first year of Sewn with Luv and it has grown with leaps & bounds (& with walls coming down!) I am looking forward to going to market (end of Oct.) in Houston for the first time as a quilt shop owner. Hoping to come back with lots of new ideas to share with all of you.
P.S. I just ordered some bolts of two highly requested fabric lines that will come in sometime in the next few months. Not saying which ones, just keep in touch!
