One thought on “Summer Classes are Here!

  1. Hi Laura and Rachel,

    I foolishly didn’t write your e-mail.

    I want to buy more fabric. I forgot to get the juvenile Lion fabric with lion heads? all over. I’d like 2 yds. Of course I HAVE to have it!

    Also, I realized I can use some of the special African fabric that you have on rolls. I don’t know which I want, but for my purposes not the red and blue Polka Dot. I need a lot of open area for specialty stitching to show up. I’m going to trust you to choose the right one. I need 1 2/3 yds. but could go for 2 yds. I’m going to try to attach a pix of what I’ll quilt over it, to help you choose. A light or dark is best because then I can get good contrast for the stitching. _Maybe the gold? I loved them all!!!
    I couldn’t paste it, so here’s a link to the stitching pattern I plan to use.


    How about a variegated yarn to embellish, if there’s one that would be great. I’ll possible scrunch it around the edges, or dangle beads on it.

    I’ll call to pay and set up shipping or take to Uncles.

    Love you and love your shop! Judy
