Every day I hear this popular question, "Are your quilts for sale?" The answer is always "yes" but it may not be the quilts you see in the store. The biggest reason for this is that all of those quilts you see on our tables and walls often have kits and/or patterns that we are currently selling. Once they come down, both the Mothership and I have decisions to make. When we have decided that we will no longer display them or use them during one of our popular workshops, we put them on our website for purchase. Others are donated and then there are some that we sometimes hold contests to win! Just ask the ladies who attend and have won at our annual "Homespun & Holly!" The Mothership is always very giving. "When you're good to Mama, Mama's good to you...yo." LOL.
BTW...this weekend I loaded 20 new quilts that I am sure someone will love!
Now, a word of note: Our quilts are not priced to the point where we devalue the art of quilting. Finished quilt prices for a full sized quilt can start at $150 and go up to $1000. Just the fabric for a full sized quilt kit can be $150 to $200 seeew we will never price lower than that. Why would we sell kits if people could buy the finished quilt for less than that? Wouldn't make sense now would it? Table toppers and runners are an entirely different story. The most important thing is that these quilts become heirlooms that will be loved and enjoyed for years to come either by us or someone who really appreciates them. Jan (a.k.a The "Mothership") pays our team of piecers and long arm quilters so none of this is "volunteer." All of the "wow" you see in the Shoppe is the work of eight talented women including Jan, Christine, Dorene Kemp, Dorian McBride, Leilani Chartier, Lisa Goodloe, Melissa Hoffman and Monica Mesdag. At any one time there can be up to twenty quilts and projects out being pieced or quilted.
It's a spinning wheel I tell ya!
While we are spinning, look at the exquisite detail of Lisa's piecing along with Monica's quilting. Simply stunning.
Before I leave you with images of other quilts that are available now for purchase, I will add that I no longer leave these quilts out on the floor. I have made this decision in order to keep the quilts we are selling in excellent condition.
If you are looking for a quilt when visiting the Shoppe, it's a good idea to have a style and price range in mind. Do you want a traditional quilt? A bright quilt? A quilt with a vintage floral vibe? How about children's quilts? Do you like Primitive or 1800's Reproduction? Maybe batik is more your style. Any bit of conversation is always helpful.
Take a peak at all of our finished quilts for purchase here.
Keep in mind that once we list a quilt for sale, we no longer offer the pattern for sale. Generally when a quilt is listed for sale, it's our time to move on to even more quilts. It truly never ends.
Alright, enjoy your evening and I'll be back with more Boughs of Holly fun! Coming up next a look at Easter and our next S.p.R.u.N.g designer, Kathy Cardiff! ~ Brian
