Sewlovelee says Hello and Goodbye

Hello and Goodbye

Just as we’re saying hello to fall and cooler weather, we are saying adios to loved lines. Stay tuned for news of new and old fabric and patterns.

Some must-know news up front.

1) Drop offs for quilt entries in the Community Customer Quilt Show start October 3. The Quilt Show is the week of October 10-14th. The show is weather dependent so plan your visit accordingly!

2) The Bernina 25% trade-in deal ends at the end of September. If you are looking at a machine, now is the time to buy.

3) Get your quilts in now to make sure we have time to longarm them before Christmas. To receive your quilt within two weeks, there is a $50 rush fee. This starts today. (The normal turnaround is one month)

4) The price for longarming is going up effective October 1. We’ve not raised prices since 2014 and it’s time. It will now be $.025/sq inch.

Bernina sales are not to be missed

Tessa is THE pattern for large-scale prints. Imagine using Kaffe! But wait, the pattern also shines with solids, small prints, lots of fabrics, few fabrics. It is so very flexible. Buy it today.


Aurifil Thread Lab 1.3 is available! In the box are 40wt and 28wt threads and these are supported by educational vids and more. And, subscriptions are still available.

Sunflowers In My Heart is in the house! This white, yellow, blue, and green line combines radiant sunflowers, clear colors, delightful patterns in several scales, and several colorways. The 28-piece collection shines in the Bloom Quilt Pattern, also designed by Kate Spain. The quilt finishes at 53”x57”.
