Christmas in July Sale

It's July, and if you haven't started thinking about what you're making for the holidays you probably will be soon. Be sure to check out this week's sale. 10% off all Christmas/winter themed fabrics.

Isn't the knitting detail great? We've got more from the Snow Show collection for Benartex here.

Or these lovely trumpeting angels.

And since we love you all so much, ALL of the seasonal/holiday fabrics are on sale this week. From the Halloween prints to the terrific Sturgis speciality print.

Be sure to swing by the shop and let us know what you think.

Looking for something in particular? Just ask, we may have it, but not have it on the website yet.

Feature Friday

Today we are featuring a fun little notion called the Cling-On Magnetic Holder.

These magnetic holders are great for keeping your scissors, pins, nails, etc from getting misplaced. They also fit nicely on your lapel and, because it's magnetic, does not put holes in your shirt. They comes in lots of fun colors & designs like swirls, dragonflies, and flowers.

Be sure to check out yesterday's 10-Minute Table Runner demo (approx. 3 min video) to see the Cling-On in action. :)

*Remember to keep it away from computers & computerized sewing machines.

What's Happening at Lickety Stitch

Sharon has been doing all the blogging so I thought I should add a post today - and show a little of what is happening at the shop.

On Wednesday afternoons we have an ongoing class where quilters can come and work on their current project.  We provide the instruction and guidance they need and they work at their own pace on the project of their choice. If you would like to join us in the following weeks, call and reserve a spot.
Today Terry was working on a Snap It! bag and Jane was binding a quilt.  Both turned out really nice, I might add!

Our fabric sales rep from Troy was through earlier in the week and I ordered a new line that just came out featuring wildlife.  Here are a few pictures of the quilts that were made from this line.  It should be in the store within a couple weeks. 

Until next time,

WIP Wednesday

Our website is a constant Work in Progress, WIP, because we are getting new fabrics in on a weekly (and sometimes daily) basis.  But today I would like to share my (Sharon's) first WIP for the brick & mortar portion of the shop.

Last week I shared this fun & quick lap quilt kit.  Well, I got the opportunity to make a sample.  I have reached a point, where I am very nearly done, but there is a bit of unpicking that needs to happen before I can continue. Oops!

I am piecing them into larger blocks before putting everything together.  I just wish it would cool down enough that I could get back into my sewing room to finish!

Here is one of the completed blocks.

Be sure to check out our sale on all Moda Pre-Cuts!

I have been linking up my personal blog to Freshly Pieced WIP Wednesday for several weeks now.  I really love it so be sure to swing by to say Hi, and tell Lee I sent you.  :)
