Are they not as precious as they could be? Look at the little Batman! Super cute. The "Mothership" loves vintage and I'm pretty sure a Vintage Halloween will be the theme for next year. The figurines above will theme very well should you perhaps want to include some of those popular black, orange and cream quilts Joanna (Fig Tree), and Carrie (Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.) have been showing off across social media.
I thought I would take a brief moment to share with all of you some of the Halloween goodies around the Shoppe. These items are available through October 31, 2014.
Our Halloween Williraye are 25% off now through October 31, 2014. Our complete collection is in the Shoppe now and here on our website. I love these little guys and they have a great regular price. Look at the little cow costume! Ha ha ha ha. These are items that become part of a family tradition.
Owls are always popular and this candy bowl is my absolute favorite. Maybe I live in another world, but if I were able to stay home every day without a worry in the world, I would decorate my sewing studio for each holiday. Forget the kids....this is for me! LOL.
Oh...that's right. I don't have a sewing studio. Pfffffff...
But...the "Mothership" does.
It's no surprise that we would top off the owl with every quilter's version of candy....fabric. The Boo Crew is one of our favorite Halloween collections and I'll tell you why....it's chalk full of good Halloween basics which can be found in the Boo Crew Dessert Roll. Did you see the Red,White & Evergreen Quilt in my previous post? It was made from a Dessert Roll.
In fact...Donna Spackman (who was one of our blog contest winners a few weeks ago), took her dessert roll and was going to make up the Red, White & Evergreen Quilt in Halloween. I'll have to check in with her for a progress report. Oh Donna?
Of course you can't just have a candy bowl ladies. Get with the program. It has to be coordinated! Little kids like to be entertained when they come over to grandma's house...you need a cookie jar, an appetizer plate followed up with a...*drumroll*....Salt & Pepper Shaker! Uh...not sure how that got on our order, but hey...someone is going to need it. The owl is the salt and the cauldron is the pepper.
Oh...I know what I was going to ask all of you....did you see our first Breakfast Club back on September 27? The next one is on October 25 from 9am until 11am and it's already full! Turn that frown upside down, and register for the next one! The Breakfast Club is my mom's morning club that is held one Saturday per month. The price is determined based on the project for the month. Quilter's young and old gather for the featured project (which is included in the cost of the club) and a delicious breakfast snack. Everyone is invited to remain for an Open Sew and to share their favorite quilting projects. Eye spy my little eye ...Martha Ogden sharing one of her projects!
Before I bid you "adieu", we do have a kit special now through October 31, 2014. Our Halloween Merry-Go-Round Quilt kit is on sale for just $99.99. Candy corn, witches, bats and owls spin round' and 'round between a variety of dots and stars! The regular price was $129.99. This American Jane pattern uses three (3) Jelly Rolls plus a few additional fabrics we added in to give you variety in how you prefer your quilt together. We only have a few left seeew if you love it, get it now.
Alright...this concludes another blog post filled with eye-candy.
Not intending to sound like a broken record but make sure you check out our schedule of hours in November. Regular hours are 10am until 5pm, Tuesday thru Saturday however, there are a few changes during the week of our Once Upon A Homespun Christmas Open House and Thanksgiving week.
It's also a good idea to follow us on Instagram and Facebook. If you are on Instagram and are attending our holiday events, you can use #onceuponahomespunxmas for your photos with your best girlfriends. Everybody gotta have a memory!
Be good ~ Brian
