Cactus Quilt Stencil

And of course our cactus collection wouldn't be complete without a cactus quilt stencil from Quilting Creations. Standing 8" tall and 8" wide the cactus design would look fantastic on larger quilt borders or within quilt blocks as well. Pair it with some cute cactus fabric and you can't go wrong.

Snuggle Tails Mermaid Pattern

Moving on from cacti to the aquatic side of things-we've got what every little girl wants...a mermaid tail! With this clever adaption of a snuggle bag...your children's toes will be warm and their hearts will be happy.

Pretend you're at the beach as you gaze at this Watercolor Sea Horses quilt designed by Elaine Perez. Along with coordinating fabrics, this quilt can be made using a combination of mini charms + charm packs, a layer cake, or lots and lots of scraps.

Calling all Tula Pink Fans! You're going to want to get your hands on this book-filled with 100 modern quilt blocks for you to choose from. And Tula has left the job of naming the blocks up to you. She's numbered them, but invites you to add your own meaning to each.

Tula Pink Butterfly Quilt Pattern

Modern with LOTS of color- this Tula Pink pattern will brighten any home it enters. Tula says: " A variety of fabrics are what make this quilt sing! The wings of the Butterfly become a blended palette of color and print. Don't be shy about choosing fabrics whether you are using a rainbow of colors or a limited palette of only a few colors."

Creative Grids Machine Quilting Tools

Introducing Elvira, Chevy, and Taj- your new machine quilting group of besties. For wavy lines or continuous curves-Elvira's your girl. If you want a ruler with lots of versatility (a little pointy & a little curvy) then you can count on Chevy. And if you want curvy, pointed arcs you'll want to talk to Taj. For more information on each individual ruler, click on their picture.

Sunny Sampler Quilt Pattern

We've got 2 new patterns from Corey Yoder available. This one in particular, uses the panel from Corey's latest collection Sunnyside Up (not yet available in stores). It's a combination of pieced blocks as well as blocks from the panel. Finished size 57" x 69"

180 More Doodle Quilting Designs Book

Swirls, whirls, straight and curvy line, abstract and geometric designs can all be found in the pages of this book. Try them out by tracing the designs first and then try them with your machine.

New Fabric Collections

Color Calypso from Benartex

It's almost as if you were looking through a kaleidoscope with Benartex's new collection from Kanvas Studios. Aqua blues, purple and green collide in an almost "watercolor" style within a wide array of prints including circles, brush strokes, flowers, leaves, and dragonflies.

Grunge Seeing Stars from Moda

Our Grunge collection has grown again with the addition of the 'Seeing Stars' prints. These offer a little more print than normal grunge with their all-over star pattern, but like all grunges, they are perfect filler prints for an otherwise busy quilt. We've got a rainbow of colors to choose from, so come check them out!

Hearthside Holiday from Moda

Hearthside has me dreaming of being curled up by the fire with a cup of hot coca as the snow falls gently outside. Complete with large plaids, holly, Christmas trees, snowflakes, and reindeer this collection designed by Deb Strain is giving us all the Christmas feels. Jelly Rolls and Charm Packs are available as well.

Holly Woods from Moda

Holly Woods belongs in Hollywood because it's a star. Holly berry reds, deep dark blues mixed with steel blues and creams can be found in this collection that welcomes winter with open arms. Prints include: paisley, florals, and holly leaves. Precuts available.

Merriment and Materialize from Free Spirit

Continuing with our Christmas theme...vintage is in with Tim Holtz's Christmas collection designed for Free Spirit. Faded dots and pinstripes pair well with Christmas scripts and red berry prints while color schemes stay traditional with lots of red and green.

Overnight Delivery from Moda

Surprise! Another Christmas collection!
Designed by Sweetwater, Overnight Delivery brings with it the excitement and anticipation of waiting for Christmas morning to arrive. It features the
popular buffalo check prints, along with pretty polka dots, Christmas phrases/words, and a postal style print; this is one delivery you won't want to wait to open!

Shiloh from Windham

Next up is a collection full of Civil War style prints from Nancy Gere. An assortment of colors like red, muted purple, dark and light blue, and cream give the collection a scrappy look, as well as its variety of floral and vine designs.

Little Sweetheart from Andover

Pretty and posh, this dainty, mini collection from Edyta Sitar is bursting with flowers to remind you of springtime. Take a moment to smell the roses as you lay eyes on the beautiful colors of rose, primrose, blush pink and yellow-green.

Windsor Park from Henry Glass

As you stroll through the park...or through this next collection....you'll see daisies and roses in pinks, blues, and purples. Other colors included in this collection include: mossy green, yellow, teal/aqua, and periwinkle. It's a great collection to use when making a scrappy quilt!

Sparkle & Fade from Hoffman

We've added more prints to our Sparkle and Fade collection which means more metallic and pretty prints for you to choose from. Designs featured are dandelion tufts, whimsical florals and bursts, as well as giraffes- all beautifully portrayed in gold, gray, black & white.

July 2018 Newsletter

July 2018 Newsletter

Happy July, fellow quilters! Summer is here in full force and we're trying to enjoy every minute of it (even with these heat waves that we've been having in our part of Ohio). While the temperature, the freshly mowed lawns, the blooming gardens, and basically the entire environment outside of our store screams "SUMMER!" -inside our store, the fabric section is starting to scream "CHRISTMAS!". Yup. You read that correctly. Christmas in July is a reality for quilt shops. We get a lot of our new Christmas fabrics throughout the months of June and July, so that you, our customers, have plenty of time to choose your favorites and get those projects done in time for the holidays. Checkout our Christmas fabrics online, here.
Shopping tip: if you're in the store, the majority of our Christmas fabrics can be found on the right hand side of the fabric room, along the wall.


Another thing that's underway at Miller's
is the Row by Row Experience.

This years theme is Sew Musical! It started on June 21st and ends September 4th. Per the Row by Row rules, kits and patterns must be purchased or picked up in store during this time(Sorry, that means they cannot be purchased over the phone or online). Each person who stops in receives a free pattern of our row (which is pictured below). Grab your friends and go for a road trip to visit participating shops! You can collect patterns and purchase kits, license plates and pins along the way.

Here's the exciting news: if you make a quilt of 8 rows from 8 different shops and are the first to turn it into one of the participating shops, you'll receive a prize AND a bonus prize if that particular shop's row is included in your quilt.

For more information visit the Row by Row Experience Website.

FEATURED ONLINE ITEM OF THE MONTH
This month's online featured item is an adorable coloring book from Mini Lou. It's a great way to keep those creative juices flowing, but still relax and unwind. Filled with inspirational quotes and fun, summertime designs this book will keep you (or your older kids) occupied for hours.

Here's some more great news:
Original Retail Price: $9.99
July's Online Price: $4.95
& they ship for FREE! Yay!

PLEASE NOTE: Quantities of these are limited as we were only able to place a limited order. Offer is valid ONLINE only.

New Patterns, Books, & Notions

Block a Day Book

YA'LL. This book is a gem. Go on a quilting journey with this book that features enough quilt blocks for every day of the year. That's right- 365 different blocks for you to try! Maybe you'll find a favorite block and design your own quilt based off that one block...or get even more creative and build a quilt using various different squares. The blocks come in a wide array of colors (we're talking rainbow) and range in difficulty from beginner to advanced. Check it out. The possibilities are endless.

Popular Plaza Pouch In the Hoop

Design these attractive little purses within the hoop of your embroidery machine. It's a great way to use up any leftover cork scraps that you've got lying around! Choose from 4 sizes of bags or make all 4. Bag sizes are: 4" x 4", 5" x 7", 6" x 10", and 8" x 12".

Scalloped Bags Pattern

For those of you who like to carry everything but the kitchen sink in your purse...why not try this spacious, scalloped bag out for size. The tote and matching clutch are made using Bosal's Double Sided Scalloped Interfacing Foam which gives them some stability. Tote's finished size: 16" x 11 1/2" x 3" deep. Clutch's finished size: 8 1/2" x 5" x 1/2" deep.

Thimble Blossoms Mini Fireworks Pattern

What better way to celebrate the 4th of July than with fireworks...quilted fireworks that is! Camille Roskelley has designed an eye-catching mini quilt requiring mainly fat eighths and quarters. The cover photo uses prints from Bonnie & Camille's Smitten collection for Moda, but this pattern would be equally as beautiful in reds, whites, and blues. Finished size: 19" square.

Cabin Flurries Table Runner Pattern

The perfect project for the those winter days when "the weather outside is frightful." Spend some quality time with your sewing machine as you piece the log cabin blocks used to create the center of this table runner. Then curl up by the fire and drink some hot cocoa as you embroider wool snowmen, trees, and cardinals to each end. Finished size:

16 1/2" x 40 1/2".
Skill level: Intermediate.

Forty Fabulous Years by Eleanor Burns

Celebrate with Eleanor Burns as she commemorates the 40 year anniversary of Quilt in a Day. Join her as she walks you through fun and fond memories of days gone by, all while teaching you how to create the blocks you'll need to make her Fabulous Forties Sampler quilt!

Simple Whatnots Book

If you've got scraps on scraps on scraps on scraps...then now may be the time to gift yourself with a Kim Diehl book. She walks you through making 18 unique, mini quilts which will 1) help you use up some of those scraps that have been piling up in your drawer, box, or closet and 2) require less time to make than a full size quilt to increase the likelihood that these projects will actually be completed and won't sit in your U.F.O drawer for another 3 years.

Classy Lass Wristlet Pattern

We're cork obsessed- and really, who can blame us? There are so many cute projects featuring cork fabric, like these wristlet purses! And what's even better, this project only takes 45 minutes-so you can have a new purse in under an hour! Finished size: 6 1/2" wide x 4" tall x 1" wide.

Have It All Wallet Pattern

Keeping your purse organized is a chore. The Have It All Wallet will help you have it all in order. With plenty of pockets for all your credit cards, loyalty cards, check book, cash, and even a zippered pocket for your coins, this wallet is the perfect place for all your stuff. Better there than floating around in your purse, right?
Finished size:
7 1/4" w x 4 1/4" h x 1/2" d

Fons & Porter Quarter Inch Seam Markers

Sometimes the simplest tools can be the best tools, like these quarter inch marking rulers. Half square triangles are an essential building block for many quilts and these rulers will help you easily mark the 1/4 in sewing lines that you'll need when constructing them. Basic, yet very effective and will save you time.

Rule Your Rulers

Another simple, but very useful tool- a ring to hold all of your rulers! It's convenient hook allows you to hang them in your closet, on the back of a door, or on a doorknob. It also makes it easy to transport your rulers when going to a quilt retreat. Be the Queen of rulers with this Rule Your Rulers tool!

New Fabric Collections

Sno from Moda

Let it sno, let it sno, let it sno. Designer Wenche Wolff Hatling graces us with a collection full of cute, festive designs featuring reindeer, snowflakes, Christmas words, and even a few Christmas-y mice. Hatling says "Sno captures Scandinavian winter-themed fabrics in traditional holiday red, with stylish grey and black, combined with classic pure white."

White Christmas from Moda

Golds, grays, and glamour galore. You'll definitely be humming along to "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas" if you're sewing with this collection. Tiny Christmas trees, mistletoe, twinkling stars, Christmas-y words, and Christmas leaves can all be found within the prints of this collection. Zen Chic kept to neutrals with her black, grey, white, gold, stone & silver color scheme.

Shiny Objects Precious Metals from RJR

Continuing with the neutral theme...some things are better in black and white...(and maybe a bit of gray and metallic); this collection is proof of that. The metallic accents in some of the fabrics add just the right amount of shine, while both bold and subtle floral prints give the designs an elegant flare.

Rosette from RJR

Roses are red. Violets are blue. Here's a collection picked just for you. While these particular prints also exhibit a lot of gray, white, and black like the last two collections, they also contain a pop of color. Soft yellows and rosy reds give life to the floral prints while green stems and leaves add even more color to the mix.

Sugar Sack It's Sweet from Windham

If you were waiting for a collection with lots of color...here it is! Bright blues, reds, yellows, and greens can all be found in our new 30's style prints. If you love quilts with a scrappy look-try out 30's prints because they tend to have a scrappy vibe about them, and these particular prints are no exception.

Something Blue from Andover

~Something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue~
Maybe this collection is your "something blue" for an upcoming wedding or maybe you just really love the color blue-whatever the reason may be, this collection from Laundry Basket Quilts is definitely one to check out.

Sussex from Windham

Enchanting and elegant (much like the Duke and Dutchess of Sussex) with its colors of rose, wine, and dark gray, Sussex designed by Nancy Gere is sure to be a hit! It contains both small and large floral prints, along with arrows and small squiggle prints. You'll be dreaming of England and royalty in no time with this collection!

Lottie Ruth from Andover

We're adding even more 30's prints to our collection, like these prints designed by Kathy Hall. As was mentioned earlier, 30's prints are great for making scrappy quilts. If you like the colors and style of these prints, be sure to check out the rest of our 30's print online. You may also want to take a look at this Nine-Patch Baby Quilt Pattern; the pattern and 30's prints are a match made in quilt heaven.

Grunge from Moda

Okay, so Moda's Grunge isn't exactly a new concept here at Miller's Dry Goods. We've had them for a while now, but we are continuing to add to our collection. So we wanted to take this opportunity to remind you that a) hey, they're still here and b) they are perfect fillers/accent fabrics to add to your quilt. Grunge gives your quilt an added bit of texture, without being too busy or distracting.
Sidenote: we are going to slowly start transitioning our Moda Marbles out of the store and will be bringing more Grunge in. It will be a slow transition(they won't disappear overnight)-but we wanted to give you a heads up, just in case you want to grab any of your favorite Marbles before they're gone.

Impromptu Mix from Marcus Brothers Textiles

This next collection from Marcus Brothers is a beauty. It's fancy flowered designs sing of spring & summer while paisley prints and wave designs also make an appearance. Soft reds, peachy pinks, steel blues, along with sage/olive greens are all used to color this collection.

Wintertide from Moda

Annnddd we're back to Christmas & Winter and a very cute one at that. Janet Claire's Wintertide collection comes fully equipped with tiny evergreens, snowed-in homes, and friendly penguins to melt your heart. Navy, red, and green colors solidify its Christmas-y feel.

June 2018 Newsletter

06/01/2018
by Rachelle Miller

June 2018 Newsletter

Well folks, June is already here and that means we're almost halfway through 2018 AND the first day of summer is in just 21 days! How crazy is that?! Can't you just smell the fresh cut grass, the smell of BBQ wafting from the grill while your ears ring with the sound of children's laughter as they play in the pool. Whatever your summer plans may entail, we hope that it's your best summer yet AND that you find some time to sew & quilt while you're at it.

This month we're featuring a pattern from Libs Elliott. It's called the Easy Like Sunday Morning Baby Quilt-the perfect pattern for when you've waited till the last minute to get a baby gift, but you still want to give something special and handmade. We put our own little twist on the pattern and made it out of our Embrace Double Gauze giving it a light, yet soft feel. We used the big-stitch technique for quilting, which helped our project move along even more quickly.

New Patterns, Books, & Notions

The Go-Go Compact Bag Pattern

If you're always on the go and can't have a heavy purse weighing you down- we think we may have found the perfect pattern for you! The Go-Go Compact Bag includes 2 magnetically snapped exterior pockets (for your keys, camera, glasses,etc.), a hidden pocket in the center of the purse for your smart phone and a full size, zippered interior wallet for your cash, cards, and change.

Yo-Yo Accents Forest Friends Pattern

Invite cute forest animals into your kitchen with these yo-yo designs from Marcia Layton. The pattern includes instructions for a brawny bear, an outstanding owl, a delightful deer, a fantastic fox, a friendly frog, and a sprightly squirrel. Any of these designs will add some fun to drab kitchen towels.

Ombre Blossoms Pattern

This pattern is star-ific! It pairs perfectly with our new Ombre Confetti collection (featured later on in this newsletter) Using her 60 degree diamond ruler, Krista Moser has created a pattern that gives the appearance of stars clustered together with the tips of the stars being light in color and then fading into darker centers.

Creative Grids 60 Degree Diamond Ruler

Speaking of the 60 degree diamond ruler- here it is. It's a necessary tool for the Ombre Blossoms pattern but this 16.5" ruler can also be used in other projects for cutting: triangles, hexagons, parallelograms, trapezoids, and side setting triangles.

Jacqueline Bargello Star Pattern

Bargello quilts appear to be only for advanced quilters-but their looks are deceiving. In reality, these quilts really involve lots and lots of strip piecing, making them quite practical for beginners. This particular pattern was made using the Jacqueline collection from Quilting Treasures. Finished size is 95" x 107".

Violet Craft Seam Roller

We have a notion that you'll like this notion. Use the Violet Craft Seam Roller to press your seams rather than with an iron. It's equipped with a rounded wooden barrel that applies pressure to the seam for a crisp press. It's perfect for foundation paper piecing and for your next quilt retreat.

Banana Bag Pattern

From Lazy Girl Designs, the Banana Bag is ideal for holding your scissors, pencils,marking pens, sunglasses, etc. They require 10" squares, therefore layer cakes come in handy for this project. You can make a lot of Banana Bags with just one layer cake...which is great, because once you make one you'll want to make more! Finished size: 4" x 9" .

Ruler Wrap Pattern

An organizer for your rulers and cutting mat that makes them easily transportable and keeps them all in one spot- doesn't that sound wonderful? It can be yours when you make the Ruler Wrap. This organizer has enough room to hold your 18 x 24 cutting mat, rulers, plus other notions as well. Store it, unfolded, on the back of a door or fold it and use the adjustable, padded strap to carry it when you're on the go.

Ironing Pad

A portable, foldable iron pad is a great alternative to an ironing board when you're traveling. It takes up very little space, so it's easy to pack and it can be set up anywhere-on a counter, table, or even the floor. For smaller projects the trendy 10" x 14" pads work perfectly, or we also have a larger 17" x 25" pad that comes in a basic gray color. Both sizes are non-slip due to their 100% silicone back.

New Fabric Collections

Jo's Shirting from Moda

Jo Morton is all about making your scrappy quilt dreams come true. In her latest collection, she's gifting you with beautiful background style fabrics. She says "From tiny starbursts to petite tulips, thin stripes to tossed buds, I know

you will love adding these prints to your scrappy projects."

Ombre Confetti from Moda

Glitz, glam, and all that jazz. Featuring a rainbow of colors, this collection is here to add that little bit of sparkle that we all need in our lives. The ombre effect happens over the width of each fabric (the edges of the fabric are dark and fade to light in the middle) while confetti dots fall from each edge.

Christmas Delivery from Riley Blake

A cute, vintage style holiday collection designed by Cartabella, Christmas Delivery features buffalo check plaids, tree-hauling trucks, and winter-y floral designs. Keeping with its classic design, the traditional Christmas colors of green and red are prominent in this collection.

Let it Sparkle from RJR

A mini, but stunning collection-Let it Sparkle is ringing in the holidays with prints featuring pine cones, berries, eucalyptus, amaryllises and poinsettias. If you're looking for a good addition to your next Christmas project, make sure to check out this collection.

Jacqueline from Quilting Treasures

Pretty in purple, Jacqueline exhibits elegance with a touch of whimsy. Featuring branch designs, along with large florals, leaves, and swirls-this collection represents spring but in cool tones as opposed to the warm tones typically found in spring collections. Use them to make the Jacqueline Bargello Quilt featured earlier in this newsletter.

Swell Christmas from Moda

A jolly good collection is coming to town...or rather it's already arrived. A winking Santa Clause invites you to have a Swell Christmas with candy canes and holly plus green & red plaid and red geometric design. A mini collection, but oh so cute!

Once Upon A Memory from Moda

Let this collection carry you back to those old fashioned Christmases celebrated with family and friends. Olive/sage greens, crimson reds, neutrals, and browns color Holly Taylor's new collection. Designs include: pine leaves, paisley prints, berries, and snowflakes.

Yuki from Moda

In explaining her inspiration for her new collection, Debbie Maddie says " Yuki means “snow” in Japanese and this collection is my interpretation of icicles, frost in the air and snowflakes, from those tiny wisps to the large flakes that fall like feathers." Consisting mainly of various shades of blue and white, some of the designs appear to have a "tie-dye look" to them, while others have smaller bursts of white on a blue background.

May 2018 Newsletter

05/02/2018
by Rachelle Miller

May 2018 Newsletter

Wishing our fellow quilt lovers a happy May, as well as a happy spring! We hope everyone who went to the Sewing & Quilt Expo last month enjoyed themselves. It was great to see so many familiar and new faces stop by our booth and check out our Raggy Clipper Demo. We just want you to know that we shear-iously* appreciate our loyal customers. You all are sew* awesome!

*Disclaimer: We had a little fun looking up quilting puns (or just puns in general) this month so don't be surprised if you see some scattered throughout this newsletter.


Now as most of you are aware, we as quilter's need to think ahead because many projects take more than just a day to finish. With that being said-if you're looking for something to use during your 4th of July festivities, we've got something new to show you (some of you may have already seen it on Facebook). It's our new Flag Quilt pattern designed by Rachelle right here at our store. Patriotic and majestic- this quilt uses fabrics from the Defenders of Freedom Collection from Paintbrush Studios, as well as a Marble and Bella Solid from Moda. For a fun twist, Rachelle used cuddle fabric for the backing of our quilt-making it even more versatile; it can be draped over your couch during the summer to add that patriotic touch to your home and you can snuggle underneath it when the cold winter weather sets in.

Kits and patterns are available now online and in the store. The kit includes everything you need to make the quilt top and the binding. Batting and backing are sold separately. And you wanna know the best part? The pieces for the quilt top are all pre-cut...so all you have to do is sew them together! No, we're not "kitting"- you don't have to worry about cutting out your pieces! However, we only have a limited number of kits available- so if you're interested, I'd suggest getting it now rather than later. Once they're sold, they're sold.

FEATURED ONLINE ITEM OF THE MONTH
Of course we can't forget about our Featured Online Item of the Month. Since last month's featured item was a rotary cutter with a splash of color, we thought you'd need a colorful cutting mat too!
Introducing the Olfa Splash Companion Mat!
They're 12" x 18" -a great size for easy transportation and they come with a pop! of color. Take your pick of either aqua or pink! We think they're deal-ightful, so we're giving them to you at a special price this month!
Regular Price: $18.99
May's Online Price: $13.50
*Please note that this offer is valid online only. Phone orders and in-store purchases do not apply. Supply may be limited.

Pssstttt....If you're as "stuck" as we are on the background fabric in this picture, we've got you covered. We wouldn't want to be "pricks" and keep it a secret. It's embrace double gauze and can be found on our website if you click here.

A Note About our Online Shipping Prices

In our ongoing effort to better your online shopping experience with us, we are revamping our shipping prices on the website so that hopefully they are a little more reasonable. We will also now be offering free shipping for orders of $80 or more instead of $100. We hope this makes shopping online a little more convenient for our loyal customers!

New Patterns, Books, & Notions

Precision Rotary Cutter

If your project requires your cutting to be precise, then this precision rotary cutter is precisely what you need! It's miniature in size (we're talking a 14mm blade) with a Kushgrip handle and is functional for both righties and lefties. The blades of the cutter are simple to change and the safety cap makes it easily storable and transportable.

Omnigrid Foldaway Mid-Size Cutting Mat and Ironing Area

We're pretty im"press"ed with this next notion- a totable cutting and pressing station! A must have for your next quilt retreat or small piecing project...this dual purpose notion comes in what appears to be a binder or notebook. When you open it up you'll find a mini cutting mat on one side and a place to press your fabric on the other. It pairs well with our Steamfast Mini Travel Iron!

Fiskars Folding Yardstick

Continuing with the trend of "easily transportable notions" -here's another handy item for you to add to your collection. A fold-able yardstick-simple, but genius. You get the functionality of a yardstick, with the storage capabilities of an 18" ruler. They don't just rock, they rule!

Happy Quilter Variety Puzzles Volume 2

The second installment of the Happy Quilter puzzle books is here. This edition not only has word searches, but also includes: logic puzzles, criss crosses, word mines, Word Roundups, crossword puzzles, and word scrambles. The best part? It's all quilt-themed!

Jo's Little Favorites III

Where are our Jo Morton fans at? Get ready for the new flood of ideas coming your way! Jo's giving you a small peak into how she displays her little quilts in her own house. She's equipping you with 16 little quilt designs that were originally only available to her club members. Know the great thing about little quilts? The smaller they are, the more you can fit in your home!

Cork Crossbody Bag Pattern

Cross my heart....you're going to want to check out this new cork bag. This crossbody bag pattern was designed with cork in mind. Try it with the regular cork fabric or branch out and use colored cork! Hint: we have cork available here at the shop-but you'll need to stop in or call us to purchase it. Bag comes in 3 sizes: 4.5" x 6.25", 5.5" x 7.25" & 6.5" x 8.25" .

Sew Hung Over Pattern

Let's talk organization.Shell we? We think this over-the-edge pocket would do just swimmingly in your sewing room. Use it to store small spools of thread, bobbins, or embroidery scissors; it would even make a great thread catcher! A detachable turtle pincushion sits on top to keep you company while you work.

Peace on Earth Pattern

Fa la la la la and sew on and sew forth. Yeah, we know it's a little early for Christmas but we think you'll love this pattern anyway! This 51" square wall hanging pattern, from Coach House Designs, will add a warm and cozy element to any home. The fabrics featured on the front page of the pattern are from Deb Strain's Hearthside Holiday collection (estimated to ship to our store in June and will be featured our the July newsletter).

Pumpkin Sky Pattern

We think you'll "fall" in love with the wall hanging and pillow pattern from Carried Away Quilting. The pumpkins can be designed using fat quarters in your favorite shades of orange. Make both projects for the perfect little duo that will add the perfect touch of autumn to your home. Finished wall hanging size: 38.5" x 25.5". Finished Pillow Size: 18.5" x 18.5".

Travel Case Pattern

Create your very own little travel case using this pattern from P3 Designs. It allows you to keep all your little notions (like marking pens, small rulers, rotary cutters, embroidery scissors, etc.) in one place when you travel. Choose 3 of your favorite fat quarters and get to sewing!

Camper Note Cards

Write a sweet little note to your friends or invite them to a fun-filled summertime bash with these cute camper cards from Amy Bradley Designs. Each packet includes 8 different camper designs and 8 blue envelopes. For a little added flare the pictures on the front of the cards are made to look like they've been quilted.

Safety Cutter

The Slice safety cutter is a handy dandy little gadget that can be used for scrapbooking, cutting coupons,or cutting out recipes. It easily slices through those pesky, plastic
hard-to-open packages. The blade is tiny and ceramic so it won't rust like a metal blade will!

TrueCut TrueGrips Gripper for Rulers

This notion is something you truly must have. The non-slip adhesive rings can be attached to the back of any ruler to keep it from slipping while you're trying to accurately cut your fabric. They're ultra thin and clear so they won't raise your ruler off the cutting surface and you can still see your fabric through the grips.

New Fabric Collections

Mighty Machines from Moda

Beep, Beep! Make way for Lydia Nelson's collection celebrating things that go "brrm, brrm". It's full of fun prints like airplane propellers, trucks, cars, tire tracks, airplanes, parachutes, and even an old fashioned service station. The color scheme is primarily reds, blues, grays, and creams.


Homespun Gatherings from Moda

We're adding a few more homespun fabrics to our collection with these new prints from the Homespun Gatherings collection by Primitive Gatherings. If your unfamiliar with homespun fabrics check out our website for a little more information, or if you're visiting our store take a stroll through our Quilt Barn and see our homespun collection for yourself.

Pepper & Flax from Moda

It's as if Corey Yoder took a large ray of sunshine and bundled it up into a neat little collection just for you! Golden yellows (and just a smidge of green) burst out among the grays to wave hello to you and spring. And did we mention florals? Lots and lots of florals...Daisies, Tulips, and Queen Anne's lace to be exact.

Nest from Moda

The birds are singing their approval of this next collection. Designed by Lella Boutique, from the colors to the designs- these prints radiate spring. If the bright colors of green, coral-pinks, and robin egg blue don't cure your winter blues than the large florals and nesting bird designs should do the trick.

Vintage Holiday from Moda

We're taking a small break from the spring collections to bring you this next collection from Bonnie and Camille. Break out the wrapping paper and start singing Deck the Halls because it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Ornaments, snowflakes, tiny Christmas trees, ribbon bows, and poinsettias are all featured in this bright and cheery collection featuring reds, pinks, light blues, and bright greens.

Regency Blues from Moda

In his debut collection for Moda, Christopher Wilson Tate presents the color blue in a sophisticated and classic way. Tate says "[t]he prints are drawn from
quilts originating in the North East of England, and the prints have been named
for some of the beautiful places there – Berwick, Lindisfarne and Chipchase." If these are any indication of what England is like, then I'm thinking I should definitely go visit!

Feed Sacks: True Blue from Moda

Continuing on with our blue theme- we've got another new Moda designer to introduce- Linzee Kull McCray. With a variety of prints ranging from large to small florals to plaid to geometric designs, this collection takes on a scrappy look. Of course the main color is obviously blue, however reds, yellows, and greens are expertly woven throughout to make for an eye-catching collection.

Well Said from Moda

Like a well written speech-this collection will leave you inspired and motivated (motivated to quilt that is). From Sandy Gervais, Well Said is a collection filled with happy, budding prints in springtime oranges, lime greens, teals, blues, and sunshine yellows. It also features a panel with quotes like "Kindness changes everything" and "Life is art, live yours in color"...in other words-the type of quotes that will have you saying, "wow, that was well said."

Llama Llama Bo Bama from RJR

Looking for a quirky, colorful collection? No probllama, we've got you covered! You can't help but smile when you see this collection- even the name of it is fun to say! Featuring llamas in a variety of colors and outfits plus paisley prints and balls of yarn- these prints definitely make a statement.

Midnight Garden from RJR

Imagine walking through your garden at midnight as the bright hues of the flowers stand out against the black night sky...and that's what this collection seems to portray. Vibrant magenta-reds, purple/plum, aqua and teal make up the weave and textured prints while other prints include large florals against a black background as well as two floral border prints.

Calling All Nurses from Windham

Help! We've come down with some kind of bug.....a quilting bug that is! Perhaps buying this collection will be the antidote we need. With cute prints featuring stethoscopes, heartbeats, blood pressure machines, and nursing quotes...it may very well be we've found the cure.

Unicorn Magic from Northcott

A collection full of rainbows and unicorns is every little girl's dream coming to life right before their eyes. It features unicorn silhouettes set against a rainbow background, rainbow stars, rainbow unicorns, unicorn quotes, and a panel that reminds you to "Always be yourself...unless you can be a unicorn".

Happy Spring! We hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend with their families. Did anyone make those adorable bunny-shaped satchel bags from last month's newsletter for their Easter get-together?
The arrival of April means we are busy, once again, preparing for the Sewing & Quilting Expo in Cleveland on April 5-7! As you can see in the pictures below, we've quite literally got STACKS of merchandise just waiting to be displayed. I spy tag-along kits, scrubbies, yard pieces, owl pincushions, and even a stuffed llama. Come visit us at the expo and see all the wonderful ideas & products we've got to share with you!

Last month we decided to try something new by doing a featured item of the month online and we got a terrific response! In fact, we've decided to keep it going and do a featured online item every month. SO...without any further ado,
the featured item for April is
The Olfa "SPLASH" Rotary Cutter


Not only do you get the great quality cutter that comes with the Olfa name, but these rotary cutters also come with a "splash" of color. That's right, you can now have an aqua, purple, or pink rotary cutter! How fun!

Regular Price: $17.99.
Our ONLINE price: $9.95
THAT'S OVER 40% OFF.

New Patterns, Books, & Notions

Embroidery Products

We've just finished adding our embroidery products to the website. There are various embroidery blocks, quilt tops, and books available, as well as embroidery floss. Head on over to our website and check them out!

Embroidery Patterns

New to our collection of embroidery items are these 4 little patterns from Lova Revolutionary. These designs look great when framed in a hoop and hung for decoration or they can also be incorporated into a pillow or quilt blocks. The patterns can be transferred using transfer paper or you can also try using Transfer-Eze .

Embroidered Mandalas Book

Another one of our new embroidery products is this new book by Lark Crafts, containing 25 iron-on mandala patterns for you to try. Easily transfer any of these designs to your fabric of choice, put it in a hoop, pick out your thread colors, and get started! You've got hours of relaxing embroidery right at your fingertips!

Magic Pins

The magical quality of these "magic" pins is that they are resistant to the heat of your iron. Comfort grip handles make it easy to slide the pins out when you're finished, then store them in their designer case for safe keeping.

City Girl Chevron Pattern

New in our store are 3 patterns by Krista Moser. This particular one puts a fun twist on the popular chevron pattern. Modern and scrappy, this strip-pieced quilt is sure to be a hit for those of you wanting to add a little more sparkle and edge to your quilts.

Finished size: 72" x 90"
Tip: You'll want a 60 degree triangle ruler for this project.

Champagne and Pearls Pattern

The second pattern from Krista Moser is called Champagne and Pearls.The basis of it is triangles and diamonds, which will in turn create your hexagons and stars. Make it as scrappy or as classic as you'd like-it's completely up to you. As with the chevron pattern, this quilt also has jagged edges giving it a modern flare.
Finished size: 60" x 83".

Hollow Star Pattern

Our final pattern from Krista would look beautiful draped over your couch or chair. Keep it neutral with blacks and grays (as seen in the picture above) or maybe use red, whites, and blues for a patriotic 4th of July quilt. For best results use a 60 degree diamond ruler, or you may also use a rectangular ruler with a 60 degree line.
Finished size: 72" x 83"

Up North Quilt Pattern

Camping season is almost here and here's the perfect quilt to celebrate. Beginner friendly, this standard pieced quilt is made up of 18 tree blocks and 1 cute camper block in the bottom right hand corner. So grab your camping chairs, eat some S'mores, and get to work on this quilt!
Finished size: 59.5" x 68.75"

Hello Pouches Pattern

Helloooo organization! Helllooo cute pouch! These bags may be just what you need for those small, "in progress" projects. Keep all your supplies where you can see them, but avoid having them scattered across your table...or across your sewing room. Pattern includes instructions for 4 different sizes.

Micro-Safe Hot Holders Pattern

No more "awkwardly-trying-to-get-a-hot-bowl-out-of-the-microwave-using-over-sized-potholders-while-trying-to-not-spill-the-contents-and-not-burn-yourself-at-the-same-time" scenarios. These microwave safe holders make it easy to pull your hot dishes out of the microwave without burning your fingertips. Comes in 3 sizes.

Amish-Inspired Quilts for Today's Home

Carl Hentsch has put his own spin on traditional Amish-Inspired quilts. He uses bright colors and blocks traditionally used in the Amish culture-but has taken those elements and modernized them into 10 different quilts for you to work on at home. Difficulty level ranges from beginner to skilled.

Civil War Legacies IV

If your scraps are your treasures and you love reproduction prints-then this book is one you'll want to get! The 4th installment in the Civil War Legacies collection by Carol Hopkins is here with 14 new projects just waiting for you to try them out! Among the patterns you'll find interesting little tidbits of information about the Civil War as well as Carol's tales of how these quilts came to exist.

New Fabric Collections

Grassy greens, robin egg blues, and vibrant orange-ish reds shine brightly against the charcoal and gray backgrounds. Colorful,crawly creatures make their entrance, along with mums, of course! Charm Packs, Jelly Rolls, and Layer Cakes are also available.


Ella Ollie from Moda

Fancy, frilly, flower-y...and all things spring! The Fig Tree and Co designer says her "collection is filled with spring-time florals, a nostalgic text print and a few of my all-time favorite basics! " With color names like strawberry, sea-glass, and daisy, this collection draws you in and invites you to smell the roses (or any other kind of flower).

Fresh Cut Flowers from Moda

Our spring-time collections wouldn't be complete without the newest line from Kansas Troubles. Fresh Cut Flowers offers everything you love about the Kansas Trouble collections- the timeless style, the warm, rich colors & it's vintage charm. Blossoming with a variety of floral design- this fabric line is sure to be another crowd-pleaser!

Little Red Riding Hood from Windham

Over the river and through the woods...to Miller's Dry Goods we go, to buy this next fabric collection! This classic children's tale comes to life within the prints of this cotton line. On the walk to grandma's house, you'll find sweet red apples and beautiful flowers...just don't stop to talk to the Big Bad Wolf.

Adele from Windham

Designed by Whistler Studios for Windham, the Adele collection softly echoes spring with its flower-covered prints. The color scheme is simple-blue and white-but it makes a statement nonetheless. Navy and slate blue compliment each other well, while the large and small florals, berries, and small geometric designs add to its classic, elegant flare.

by Rachelle Miller

March 2018 Newsletter

Raise your hand if you're ready for spring! We sure are! This is the time of the year that a few of the girls at Miller's take their turns at heading to Florida for a couple weeks. The rest of us are hoping and praying that they bring some of that sunshine back with them. Fingers crossed!

This month we also have our annual St. Patrick's Day event on March 17th. Wear green and you'll receive 20% off your entire purchase (excludes quilts and handmade items). This sale is only in-store, but I have it on good authority that something special might be happening on our website a couple days prior to the 17th. So make sure to keep our website and Facebook page checked!

And then...maybe it's the inspiration and drive that comes with spring or maybe it's our desire to keep trying new things...whatever the reason may be...we've decided to switch things up a bit online. In the past, we've had a monthly 10% online discount on a certain category, be it books, patterns, or fabric. However, this month we're going to feature 1 particular item and give you an even larger discount instead!

This month's featured item is the Steamfast Travel Steam Iron.
It may very well be the cutest iron you have ever seen. When we first got it, we were ohh-ing and ahh-ing as if we'd just received a puppy! This steam iron is perfect for your next quilt retreat. Its small size (roughly the size of your hand) makes for easy storage and packing, but it's still powerful enough to make your creases crisp and get rid of pesky wrinkles! The iron comes equipped with dual voltage for when you're traveling internationally and it also comes with a small drawstring bag for storage. It is regularly sold for 29.99. HOWEVER.During the month of March you'll be able to buy it from our online store for 19.99! That's over 30% off!

February 2018 Newsletter

Happy February 1st! 1 month of 2018 down and only 11 more to go. Here in Charm, January brought quite the mixture of weather...it seemed as though we were having snow days one week and 60 degree weather the next. It'll be interesting to see what lies ahead in February (maybe tomorrow the groundhog will give us a hint!) I guess,the great thing about quilting and sewing is that it can be done rain or shine! 
February also means that Valentine's Day is approaching quickly and in honor of this special little holiday we thought we'd share some quilts that seem to pair well with this day of love. 

SUGAR & SPICE: Made up in Valentine's colors of red, white and pink, this quilt pattern is a great way to display your favorite hankies. The checkerboard pattern looks stunning in reds and whites--making it a beautiful quilt to give to your loved ones. 


LOVE LETTERS:Another great way to show off your favorite handkerchiefs is in the shape of love letters as shown in this quilt. Give it to someone to remind them how much you love them. It's lovely in both pastel colors or in Valentine's colors. 


Be sure to go to our website to see all of our Valentine's Day fabrics as well!

It includes items like a retractable seam ripper, wonder clips, hand-sewing needles, a fabric marking pen, and even a 5-in-1 sliding gauge. Some of these notions even go right along with this month's Valentine's theme- like the heart-shaped magnetic pin caddy and the heart-shaped pins. You can find them in the notions section of our website or click each individual picture to see a specific one.
