Great Deals on Fabric, Thread and Classes!

Good Morning, Quilters!

I hope you will have a few minutes between basting the turkey and setting the table to do a little early shopping!

Craftsy has an AMAZING SALE –starts today and ends on Monday!

Stock up on classes for yourself and as gifts–in January you will be so glad you did!


All of my classes are included in the sale!

Creating a Quilting Plan:  Approaches for Any Quilt is my newest class and it is a mini class–one hour packed with information on how to choose the batting, motifs and thread for your quilt.  It includes a Roadmap, Design Worksheet and a Self-Evaluation in the course materials–be sure to download them–they are an important part of the class!  If you need a JUMPSTART to quilting your quilt tops–this class is for you!  We discuss options for embroidered and appliquéd quilts, quilts with a lot of negative space and more.  The class assumes you are familiar with a wide variety of motifs–from my other classes.Craftsy: Creating a Quilting Plan

Divide and Conquer:  Creative Quilting for Any Space is my first class and is chock full of motifs!   In the class, I demonstrate doodling and quilting more than 30 motifs.  Along the way we discuss marking tools, thread, the curlicue knot and six ways to divide your blocks and quilts to create a cohesive composition.


Divide and Conquer Quilting

Creative Free Motion Techniques:  From Doodle to Design builds on the first class with more motifs, tips and tricks including the surgeon’s Knot.   You will love the variety of motifs to add personality and fun to your quilts! Doodle to Design, Craftsy, Lori KennedyI HAVE BEEN SHOPPING!

I have already perused the notions and fabric sale and there are a few deals you should consider!

NOTE–The links are to Craftsy.  You will have to shop around to find the specific items.

Aurifil Thread.

Large spools (1422 yards) of 50wt thread is $8.40 and less than $7.00 per spool in some of the collections!

I use this thread for construction and in the bobbin for all of my machine quilting. (Craftsy does not offer the 28wt thread I love for the top thread when I am machine quilting.)

Organizing ThreadJune Tailor thread racks

I bought six of the large racks and hung them together on my sewing room wall to hold all some of my thread.  Read more HERE

Kona and Boundless Fabric

I use Kona and Boundless Solid Fabrics for all of my Tuesday Tutorials and whole cloth mini quilts.

Boundless is lighter weight than Kona, but has a nice assortment of colors.

Boundless is $4/yard and Kona Solids are $4.80/yard–the best price I have ever seen!  (I did not see any Kona bundles as shown below–darn it!)

Kona Cotton New Summer Colors CollectionMarking Tools

I’m always in the market for new marking tools. My favorite is chalk because it is easy to see and easy to erase.  I picked up a few variations of chalk markers as well as a few of the blue markers, The SewLine ceramic pencil and I couldn’t leave without a few new rulers (I’m a ruler hoarder!)

Okay, I bought a bunch of fabric collections too…(I’m in love with the Alison Glass fabrics and I found a Lily & Loom Work Zone collection with dump trucks…)


Treat yourself to quilting–way less calories than stuffing!

Always Thankful,
