Nigel Pumpkin

Tina's Nigel Pumpkin is a terrific Needle Felted fellow to help get the Halloween party off to the right start.  Nigel is a great beginning felting project, easy to do while you try your hand at this fun needle art.  Nigel's complete kit comes with everything you need to make him - the only other requirement is a piece of needle felting foam we can send along with this scary looking pumpkin.  FUN!

Christmas is here in the studio

We are very excited to have received our Holiday Crafts 2009 magazines with our design on the cover – Yay!  Frosty and Feathered Friends look terrific in all the bright 100% wool colors in the pillow.  We are honored to be on the cover again – 3rd year in a row.  We hope you enjoy Frosty and Red Friends too.


It seems a little early to be thinking cold winter weather and snowmen (the temperature was over 100 here at the lake yesterday)  but a quick jump on things is good.  We have the magazine and complete kits for our chilly cutie so you can beat the rush and enjoy some relaxing time in December!


Let me be the first to wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy Winter to come.

Back to the Blog – finally

Actually I don’t have any right to say anything about not writing about all the stuff we have done since returning from Long Beach.  Just “didn’t get around to it” as they say!

The International Quilt Festival in Long Beach was super.  We had a great time and I didn’t hear anyone complain about a thing.  This year all the “difficulties” were seemingly ironed out and the show went smoothly. 

The ladies came streaming into the exhibition hall on 4 escalators all heading down – none going up!  All these gals look like they really are on a mission.  Our lucky 1313 booth was right in the front so we were pleased and ready to greet all the smiling faces.

Long Beach opening Our booth looked pretty nice we thought with all the new (old?) vintage needlework goodies we have been collecting for the past many months.  We were so gratified that lots of shoppers thought so too.  Not everyone gets out all around the west coast to find these things – it is nice to see them conveniently displayed!  Lots of toy sewing machines, nifty old bobbins, baskets and sewing boxes found new homes at the show.

More of our travel log to come this month as I  get back into the blogging mode.  Enjoy your weekend  coming up.
