Our New Mystery Club featuring Moda's Authentic Etc. by Sweetwater! Starts September 28

Authentic-Fabrics-3

Seeew...

There are two upcoming club-like programs you may want to consider getting signed up for as soon as possible. They are, as the headline suggests...our new Border Creek Station Mystery Club featuring Authentic Etc. and our new session of the very popular Farm Girl Vintage B.O.M. which I have covered in full detail here. Both clubs have an in-store and on-line option to participate. 

You may recall waaaay back in 2009 or 2010 the talented women behind Moda's Sweetwater released one of their first collections called, "Authentic." It was an absolute hit and sold out immediately. I can see why! The colors are always current and the designs are fresh! Eight years later they have revisited that iconic color palette and are bringing us their all-new Authentic Etc. Here's a peak at the fabrics....

Authentic-Fabrics

There are (as I shared above) two ways to participate: With Membership (in-store) or Without Membership (on-line).
I received an email the other day wanting to know what the quilt looks like seeew I must emphasize that a Mystery Quilt...IS A MYSTERY! I can tell you that we will be making the lap size and the "Mothership", Christine and I have all seen it. It's a fabulous quilt.

"With Membership" includes all eight monthly in-store meetings with clues, snacks (wine and cheese anyone?) and prize giveaways. The meeting dates are one Thursday a month from 6:30pm-7:30pm: September 28, October 26, November 16, January 25 2018, February 22 2018, March 29 2018, April 26 2018, & May 24 2018. * Please note there is not a meeting in December. The kit will be handed out at the first meeting with the first installment of the pattern. You will receive an installment of the pattern at each meeting thereafter seeew you want to make sure you attend! 

"Without Membership" is the on-line version of the program and is available for those who want to complete the program on their own. The first mailing will include the fabric kit with the the first pattern installment. The remaining pattern installments will be shipped once a month after the in-store meetings have taken place.

The "Mothership" (a.k.a. Jan for the newbies) is providing two kit colorways to select from, Black/Cream or Green/Cream (refer to the picture of the fabrics above).

Below are the links to the different options. Remember..."With Membership" is the in-store sign up and "Without Membership" is for those of you who want to do the program on-line.

Homespun-Holly-New

Seeew...

It's the announcement many wait for each year! Registration has opened for our 9th Annual Homespun & Holly Christmas Workshop!

But first...yes, the special song from my good friend and former Disney colleague, Brian Huff...will be back for some holiday entertaining! Did you see our Instagram post yesterday? If you haven't noticed, I'm kind of in love with Instagram. Quick little bits of info without having to create lengthy blogs. Especially when people are just "hunting" for product info. But that's a topic for another day...

This year we are excited to announce that we will have special guest designer, Kathy Cardiff of The Cottage at Cardiff Farms as the featured designer! Kathy is designing an exclusive Christmas-themed larger wool project specifically for this workshop! As always, since this project is in development, we protect the designer's creative process and will only reveal it on the magical day! If you love wool and if you love an enchanting Christmas design, this workshop is for you! Kathy doesn't release the designs she designs for us as patterns seeew the only way to receive is to attend! It's what we mean when we say....EXCLUSIVE.

During the workshop participants will learn Kathy's techniques for layering the applique while working with wool on textured backgrounds which always creates a sophisticated look. You can check out Kathy's featured project for last year's Wool N' Harvest Workshop by clicking here.

Our one day workshop will be held Friday, December 1 -or- Saturday, December 2 from 10am-6pm. You select the day you want to attend. The same project is taught both days.

The cost is $150 per person and includes a complete wool kit for Kathy's project, a catered holiday feast, and instruction by Kathy. Seats are limited this year so be sure to sign up as soon as you can!

And of course...even here in our new location, we look forward to bringing you the Christmas cheer we have brought for the last nine years! Here are a few of the highlights from some of the Homespun & Holly Workshops of "Christmas past" that I have captured on Instagram! As you can see, we INSIST on everyone having a good time! It is what the spirit of the season is all about!

To register you can call us at 503-694-8052 or you can click here for Friday, December 1 or click here for Saturday December 2!

Not to be outdone by Moda's lovely Brenda Riddle who captured some of  her own special moments last year!

That's it for today everyone! Be sure to get signed up for all of our workshops this fall starting with Sherri McConnell in September. Seats are limited in all workshops as they are filling up! 

Stay Seeew-cial and maybe we will see you at one of these creative moments in 2017! ~ Brian
