Now it's November!

Halloween is behind us and we are all looking forward to the Holidays.  Becky has been working on a fun wool project designed by Lisa at Primitive Gatherings.

It is all handwork so you can cozy up with your favorite movie, turn up the furnace and stitch away.

We have kits available.  If you hurry in you can have it finished in time to enjoy for the holiday season.

Remember - Tomorrow is Five Fifty Five First Friday.  
We have shelves loaded and ready for you to clear out for only $5.55 per yard.

Heart and Home block party

Heart and Home (our fall block party) will begin this Saturday, November 4.


This will be a celebration of a milestone for us as we celebrate 20 years in business.  This was the first block party we ever created after adding fabric to our frame shop.  

The blocks will be offered in country colors similar to the ones in the photo or a little brighter feel as you see the house block is done in.

The best part for you is that you can get all 12 blocks for only $20.00!

If you haven't already signed up give us a call and let us know which color way you prefer.  Our number is 801-465-9133.  (Some of you have signed up but didn't specify a color choice.  Please call us and let us know your color preference so we can prepare the kits.)


We are planning a short demo at 10:00 a.m. each block party Saturday. A different block will be passed out every other Saturday morning with a short break during the Christmas Holidays.

Gather your friends and come join us as we begin this Saturday.
