February 2019 Newsletter


It's Friday, friends! Got any exciting plans for the weekend? With the cold temperatures that we've been having here in Ohio, a weekend spent inside sewing or quilting sounds like a good idea to us! 

February means that Valentine's Day is coming up in just a couple short weeks. 
Bunny trail: Is anyone else ready for chocolate covered strawberries, or is that just me?  We have a local chocolate store that sells them on Valentine's Day, Mothers' Day and Sweetest Day (yes, we celebrate that in Ohio) and wow, they are ridiculously good. Anywayyyy you should probably get back to reading the rest of this newsletter. 
To celebrate we thought we'd share an idea that we LOVE. Okay. Full disclosure? This really has nothing to do with Valentine's Day...we just really want to tell you about our recent obsession. 

(it's a small obsession, really.)

So Rachelle, our online manager who adores sewing, recently had a brilliant idea: she's going to fill one of her walls at home with mini quilts...like a mini quilt collage. What a great way to decorate, right? And it just so happens that Thimble Blossoms has 14 ADORABLE mini quilt patterns (pictured below).

So hey, while these frigid winter temperatures invite us to stay indoors, why not create your own mini quilt wall? I'm sure throughout her journey of making these precious minis, you'll see Rachelle post photos on our Facebook & Instagram pages. Why not join in on the fun? And if you do make sure to tag us, so we can see your creations! 

Happy Sewing....and Happy Valentine's Day!


As we mentioned in our email last week...our Block of the Month subscription is available once again, with starter kits for this round being shipped in March. 

Here are the details:

Due to high demand we are offering another limited number of sign up spots to join the Amish with a Twist IV block of the month program. Orders for this round will start shipping in the middle of march and include the first three months kits to be on track with everyone else. Each kit thereafter will be shipped on a monthly basis.
You can either choose: 
A) To pay for the Starter Kit online and then call us to set up monthly payments for the remainder of the kits.  The Starter Kit cost is $65.00  (includes first 3 months' kits + the pattern book + spool of Aurifil) and will ship mid-march and then each remaining month (April-December) will be $10.00 plus $5.00 shipping for a cost of $15

B) To pay for the full year up front online for an overall savings of $30. The cost for this is $170.00. You will still receive the Starter Kit in March and then the rest of the kits on a monthly basis, you're just simply paying it for all up front.

Finished size is 88" x 98".

Shipping on the Starter Pack will be Mid-March. Included in this first shipment is the pattern book, a large spool of Aurifil thread, and the first, second, & third months block kits.

Included in this program is everything that you need to complete the quilt top as well as binding with the option to purchase backing and batting at the end. (We will send out an email about this offer announcing all the details when we near the end of this project.

If you are purchasing the starter kit and not paying for the full year please contact us to set up billing for the remaining months. Call 330-893-9899 Mon-Fri from 9am-5pm EST. Each month will be $10 plus $5 shipping. You are also welcome to pick up your block kits in store each month if you are local. 

This program is online only, discounts do not apply.

The pattern includes instructions for 2 different sizes and 3 versions of closure.

So many possibilities! Meghan Buckanan's quilt pattern, Meadowland, is great for those who are just starting their quilting journey.

Small throw, large throw, and bed size instructions are included. 
Diamond Ripple Quilt Pattern 
Another Meghan Buchanan original, this quilt pattern looks great when done up in shaded solids-giving it a rippled effect. Of course, you can also choose to make it scrappy and/or add prints to your design. 
Love is in the air! We had to include at least one Valentine's themed quilt pattern in our newsletter this month. This pattern looks clean and simple when made using only solids. Why not make one and give it away to someone you love dearly! 
A full year's worth of free motion quilting ideas. Each day features a picture of a new design created by Leah Day. This calendar will help give you some fresh inspiration, just in case you're having "quilter's block". 

New Fabric Collections 

REDiculously in Love
Grab a box of chocolates, turn on some classic love songs, light a few candles and you'll have the perfect atmosphere (and snack) in which to sew these prints. Truly a Valentine's collection, this collection features love birds, kisses, and lots & lots of hearts. As the name suggests, it's decked out in the color red.  
30's Playtime from Moda
We've recently acquired more 30's prints to add to our ever growing collection. These types of prints are fun to use in scrappy quilts and/or baby quilts. They add a dainty, floral, cheerful vibe to any quilt they're a part of. 
Summer Breeze VI
Let this collection transport you to warmer, sunnier weather. It's bursting with a wide array of floral prints painted in blues and sunny yellows. If you need to escape from these freezing cold temps...this collection is perfect for you. 
Annie from Windham  
If the last collection didn't satisfy your need for spring, maybe Annie can help. It features paisley and flower-covered prints in a mixture of colors including blues, grays, and pinks. 
Picnic Point Toweling from Moda
As we continue to grow our toweling collection, we wanted to let you know that we've once again added more prints for you to choose from. Picnic Point's colors remind us of 4th of July picnics and summers spent by the lake. 
Ombre Confetti from Moda
Ombre Confetti isn't new to our store, but we wanted to let you know that we now carry all of the colors available in this collection. If you aren't familiar with this collection, the colors go from dark to light and back to dark along the width of the fabric. Sprinkled into the mix are golden dots of confetti that add some glitz and glam.
