After such a long, warm fall it is hard to believe that December has arrived!
We are celebrating with specials to help you get prepared for the holidays: Christmas fabrics will be 25% off Dec. 1 – 16. As a bonus we are offering gift cards with purchases. Spend $100, before tax and receive a $10 gift certificate. Spend
$250, before tax and receive a $30 gift certificate to be used in the New Year.
Bundles of new fat quarters have arrived and will be 3/$10. Just think what fun stocking stuffers these would make, especially in your own stocking!!
Gift certificates are always a good choice for your favourite quilter. They may beordered by phone and we will mail them. 613 838 5541.
The Touch Quilt workshop has several places available on Dec 6; on Dec 7 there is one place still available. Quilts made in these workshops will be given to autistic children. There has been a request for the quilts, as they help to calm children in times of stress. The workshop is free and all supplies are provided. Consider donating your time to help with this worthwhile project in the spirit of giving.
Classes and clubs will resume in January 2023. We are planning some new ones to motivate you to sew during those winter days.
We hope you will come and take advantage of our specials during the first two weeks of December as we will be closed Dec. 17 until Jan. 3 so that our staff can prepare for the holidays and relax with their families (and sewing machines!). Don’t forget to also stock up on things like Steam a Seam and basting spray for your projects.
Looking forward to seeing everyone to wish you happy holidays!

Needed: Touch Quilts!

And you can help!


The Christmas season is approaching and in the spirit of giving, we are asking you to donate a few hours of your time to make a touch quilt for an autistic child.  These quilts are very easy to sew, you don’t need to be a quilter. The quilts help to ease the anxiety often felt by autistic children especially during stressful times.

We have had a request for these quilts.

All supplies and directions are provided, just bring along your sewing machine, thread and scissors, as well as your willingness to help with this worthwhile project. It will be a fun day, bring a friend. Goodies are included!

Dec 6 and/or Dec 7, 10 – 1. The class is free if you donate a quilt to this cause. Call the shop at 613 838-5541 to sign up!
