More on the MINIS…

Okay… so I am going to try to answer all the MINI questions at once. Hopefully yours is in there! • We have 4 new minis. This week they were all available as PDF download patterns. Including a great deal on a bundle! Starting on Monday, they will also all be available as printed paper patterns. Including a bundle too :-). The PDF's will only be available from us. The printed patterns will be available from any store who purchases our patterns. As a gal who loves all things paper, the patterns don't really seem real until they come in their shiny little packages. I can't wait fo the paper patterns to get here. • We will also start shipping to stores on Monday. So if you have contacted us for the patterns, that is when they will start to ship. • We will most likely offer…

Introducing… MINI PATTERNS!

We are so excited to share a little sneak peek of a new line of patterns… INTRODUCING OUR BRAND NEW MINI PATTERNS! I have always loved little quilts. In fact, I remember that one of my very first quilt books- the kind that I poured over in bed night after night trying to figure out which one I was going to make next kind of book- was Little Quilts: All Through the House by Alice Berg. Now that was a long time ago but my love of little quilts has never gone away. In fact, the very first quilt I ever bought at a flea market was a little bubblegum pink wishbone doll quilt. That was the beginning of my love of doll quilts and other quilt mini quilts [ I wil have to go and dig that one out and show you as soon as I get back from…

On the 5th Day of Christmas…

A little note: We completely understand that many of you are frustrated that we don' t have more product and that some of the items are selling out so quick- you guys are crazy, committed shoppers! Please understand that we never know what is going to sell like mad and what is going to go slowly. We do not normally stock home dec items or some of the other goodies that we offer on our 12 DAYS sale and often can't get more stock for the sale because the product is either back ordered at MODA or because it is simply no longer available. We do this sale for a bit of fun, to celebrate the holiday and to give our customers a chance to have fun along with us. Please shop in the spirit of the holiday!                &#0160…

Our trip to PIQF

Each year we vend at the Pacific International Quilt Festival and each year we are humbled and surprised by how many of you travel to visit us from near and far.

As usual, it takes us much longer to…

I know, I know. It is a bit silly showing Market photos this late in the game. But maybe you have actually managed to start missing some Market posts at this point… maybe?   MORE BOOK PROJECTS IN THE BOOTH … the Summer Soiree quilt.
