We have new dates for Sew With Jo, so be sure to read to the end of this email. Okay?
Greetings from The Christmas Crab!
I hope that you are all enjoying “high quilting season” as much as I am. I have been keeping snuggled in (or shall I say Hunkerd Down) to the shop and my sewing room at home really enjoying the snow and cold weather as I sit and sip tea and sew. LOL
This quilt is called All Aboard and I made it with Riley Blake’s Scoot fabric. The backing is a minky print the same as the outside border. It was quilted by Shelley at Graceful Stitches. I intended to give it to Noah for Christmas but he is still sleeping in a crib and this quilt measures 71 1/2″ by 91 1/2″. Maybe next year. LOL Anyway, he and Gramma like to play with his toy train for now.
This is the You’ve Got Mail quilt that Jenny from Misssouri Star shows on Utube. We have the exact fabrics in stock and Gwenda at Gwenda Quilts did a wonderful all over geometric design just like I wanted! Several of the girls here are enjoying making this quilt. It is fun.
We have received some wonderful Cuddle Comfort Flannels in yummy colours that will make great “go with” or blenders from Northcott. I made Noah a sheet set and Karen has been busily making receiving blankets for her hope chest. These are only $8.95 per yard and are so thick and cozy.
Last week we finally received our new Moda fabrics, Sweet Pea from Kansas Troubles and Floral Gatherings from Primitive Gatherings. I had to start something right away!!!!You can go to my blog to check it out.
Vin du Jour by 3Sisters for Moda came in before Christmas and these are a few things we have made.

One of the Neat Things About The Christmas Crab Quiltery
We have a great customer rewards program, The Sew Savvy Quilters Club. Free to join. Members receive a card with symbols all along the edge representing dollar amounts i.e. sewing machine=$20 purchase, Scissors=$10 purchase and needle and thread=$5 purchase. For every dollar that you spend on regularly priced items you get the equal amount punched from your card. When all the symbols are punched out…you get a $25 Gift Certificate that you can spend whenever on whatever. How great is that?
