It’s been a year since I Love Sewing, LLC has opened its doors to anyone who loves fabric.  WE have been overwhelmed with all of the community support for our store.  Thank you… Thank you.

College World Series is in full swing, kids are at sports camps, and 4-H Country Fairs are on our calendars.  Bring in 4-H identification until July 18th and receive 10% all items in our store.  We just saw a great quilt made by a 4-H’er ready for the fair.  Youth equates to creativity!  And genetics is a big factor too.  Thank you to all grandmothers and mothers who help the children sew and quilt.

TGIF is on Friday, July 8, 2011 from 5-9pm.  It’s a lot of fun to paper piece so join us for “Christmas Star” wall hanging from Kate Mitchell Quilts.  We will precut this 36”x36” quilt with Stonehenge Holiday fabrics.
Hope to see you soon,

Dee and Marcia

Spring has slipped by and Summer is coming in with thunderstorms, humidity and some heat.  Dee and I spent Memorial Day in Minden, Nebraska just like all of our Memorial Days.  The story of honoring all of the armed force veterans is never old and all of us are truly grateful for the servicemen and women who guard and protect our freedoms.  The U.S Flag waved proudly in the various cemeteries and on the city streets!!!

New fabrics and patterns are arriving into our shop.  The May Spring Market was a treasure chest of great ideas.  Creativity has no limits…maybe only a shortage of time.  It is difficult to determine a trend but there is definitely a return to solids in quilts.

We are having a BARN BURNER event next week.  We hope to see you soon!
