Sewlovelee Community Customer Quilt Show

Almost Here!

People are a-talkin’ about the Community Customer Quilt Show October 10-14. What you need to know: Drop offs are this week, Oct. 3-7. Learn how to enter one or more quilts

The quilt show will take place outside in the Quilt Garden weather permitting. Attendees vote on their fave quilt and every vote is entered to win one of nine Sewlovelee-made quilts being given away during the week. It’s a great way to introduce non-quilty friends to this art form and spend some time eating and shopping in Irvington.

Be sure to come into the shop; virtually everything is 9% off. Remember to bring your Sewlovelee savings bag to receive the additional discount. And when you spend $100, you’ll receive a special treat.

Halloween help needed

Sewlovelee is again donating 100 trick or treat bags to the Irvington Halloween event and we need your help! We’ll give you one FQ and a free pattern to get started. Want to make more? Use your stash and you’ll receive a free FQ for every additional bag you make! And candy. We’ll give you candy.


Longarm quilting updates


Christmas is always here before we know it. While there is no Sewlovelee deadline for quilting, the normal turnaround time is 2-4 weeks. That will likely change as we get closer to Dec. 25. If you need your quilt back within a two-week timeframe, there is a $50 rush fee. The price for longarming has gone up; it’s now $.025/sq inch. (We’ve not raised prices since 2014.)


New fabric, patterns, bundles, and kits

As always, there is something for everyone in new arrivals, new kits, and new bundles. And while you’re looking for you, shop for holiday gifts (Secret Santa, stockings, hostess gifts, and more!).

Juniper is a must-have collection. This Art Gallery Fabrics line is described this way:

Experience the rustic charm of wintertide with Juniper by Sharon Holland. This exquisite collection perfectly encapsulates the natural beauty of piney greens, cinnamon spice, and cozy charcoal and white hues. Cherish the season’s simple pleasures and savor the serene allure of winter.

Juniper is on the shelves now! Head over to the shop before the rain and wind start so you can make a new seasonal runner, tote bag, quilt, jacket, place mats, pot holders, wall hanging. . . um, you get the picture


October 31 is rapidly approaching and we’ve got plenty of boo-worthy prints and patterns for the Halloween of your nightmares. New are Halloween Stripe and Trick or Treat Words.

We’ve made up the new Dawn on the Prairie FQ bundle (12) into a new pattern.

Goodbye. . . Get ‘em before they are gone

It’s time to say goodbye to the last ofs. . . And we have quite the selection to choose from. There are bundles, patterns, yardage, and more.

The All American We the People Panel ($5) makes up into a high impact quilt when paired with Multi Declaration of Independence Patriotic, Sweet Land of Liberty Navy, and Earth Views Moss.
