At their recent meeting, Porterville Quilters advised me of their fabric, thread and tool preferences. What a big help!
I found out many prefer Mettler threads, some like Aurifil. Some quilters enjoy redwork, cross stitch, and using embellishments. Most use cotton batting, but their list of favorite fabrics goes on and on!
As I'm placing orders, it's great to know exactly what our local quilters need and want. We haven't had many choices in our town for a long time, so if there's anything we can do to make your shopping experience with us better, let me know!
Drop me a quick email or a phone call and tell me about your favorite threads, tools, supplies, and patterns. I hope to provide those specific requests as best I can. If it's something you love to use, I need to know about it!

Here's a cool new tool!
This Sewline Trio mechanical pencil has 2 ceramic leads - black and white, plus a tracer point for tracing patterns, and a built in eraser.
Specially formulated leads give a clear, fine line on fabrics, which is easily removed from most fabrics with the special Sewline Eraser or by dabbing with a damp cloth or washing. Simply rub off with the eraser or dab off with a damp cloth. The refillable lead colors are created to fade under sun light. We have black, white, and yellow refills. Those light colors are perfect for marking quilting, stitching, or sewing lines on dark fabrics.
Just twist the barrel to change points.

While we were traveling and visiting with family, we stopped in at the Moda/United Notions warehouse in Dallas. It was huge. What an amazing experience.
Wait till you see all the pretty fabric I found!
By the way, the online store is now open for business. I'll have the fabric ready to sell as fast as I can.
