Wow…we had a great shop hop!  Because it was our first year we definitely had the jitters.  But quiltists seem to always be of the friendly and nice persuasion as proven again at the shop hop.  We hope to see you on April 30, 2011 with your NIFS bag for the fifth Saturday.  We will be starting our Beginner Quilt of the Month block that day.  It consists of twelve 12 inch classic quilt blocks with templates that can be cut with the rotary cutter or scissors.  The cost for the each block is $6.50.  A sashing, outer border, and binding kit will be available for purchase after January 1, 2012.

“Three Little Pigs” Huff and Puff fabric from Timeless Treasures has arrived into our shop. So now it’s a decision between, Seuss, Spot, Hungry Dinosaur, and Three Little Pigs?  See you soon!

Nebraska State Shop Hop 2011

Nebraska State Shop Hop 2011 is coming to a close.  This is I Love Sewing’s first year in the shop hop and it’s been a blast.  We have made many new sewing and quilting friends and have had the opportunity to learn a lot from everyone who has visited our shop.  The charms from the various stores are great!!! If you have questions about what is a “Shop Hop”, give us a call at 402.727.7869.  It ends on Sunday, April 10th at 5:00 pm.

New fabrics are arriving to our store.  So take a look at the “Fifi & Fido” collection from Anna Griffin.  Andover’s “Spot” and Kaufman’s “All About Seuss” are precious.  New patterns include the “Clothespin” Apron and “Soft Scarf” with Anna Marie Horner’s cotton voile.
