Travels and Updates

It's been awhile since I've posted and thought I had better update everyone on my latest adventures.

The Country Store in Carthage, Missouri is owned by Terri Garner and is a wonderful and friendly shop! They carry a large assortment of fabric and have a great discount section. They now carry both of my patterns, "Cody's Flower Garden" and "Appli-Cake" and are located at 14426 Burr Oak Road, Carthage, Missouri. Their phone number is (417) 358-9385. At this time, they do not have a website.

Heritage Fine Fabrics in Belton, Missouri is the latest shop to purchase "Appli-Cake" and will be carrying kits for table runners. Connie Read is the owner and is a great gal. She carries a wide variety of fabrics including Kansas Troubles, Fairy Frost by Michael Miller, Fossil Ferns and other delicious fabrics. Heritage also has a huge assortment of Moda Charm Squares and Layer Cakes. A link to her website is located in the left column.

I recently travelled to the Dallas, Texas area and was able to visit Moda Fabrics. All I can say is that it was very overwhelming and sort of like a fabric Disneyland! I did manage to come away with a lot of goodies which will be used in my future patterns.

I am currently working on ideas for some smaller quilt patterns. I know all of us love to be able to complete a quilt quickly and smaller pattern sizes allow us to accomplish that without it taking a year or more. That way those projects won't end up as UFO's in your quilt room!

I will be vending at the Blue Valley Quilt Guild Show on Friday, November 14th from 3:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and Saturday, November 15th from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The show is located at the Community Covenant Church at 15700 West 87th Street Parkway in Lenexa, Kansas. It's a great show and, if you are in the area, I hope you will have a chance to stop by and say "hey."

Enjoy the fall weather and check back often for updates.

Until later...Happy Stitchin' Mindy Peterson
