Hello again!

Over the past several years I've gone through a lot of changes both personal and professional. While I am no longer selling sewing patterns, I have finally found my footing and have designed a whole new world for myself and for you.

 I have a new line of stationery and gifts branded "Engelwood Studio", designed with quilters like you in mind. :-)

If you are not already a subscriber I hope you'll join me now, as I continue on my journey, visiting my customers and quilt shops around the country.

I'm not heading off quite yet, I'm waiting for approval samples on some of my products but it won't be long! 

Kindest regards,

Quilts On Broadway - Foley, MN

What a great facade! Barb Erickson (owner) told me her Mom painted the window trim. Awesome!

A couple of sweet samples.
Oooooh! Love this apron. How cute would this be while you're preparing your Thanksgiving meal. Or any meal?

I have to admit I spent some time ooohing and aaahing over this beauty!

I want to thank Barb Erickson (shop owner) for her generous donation to my travels and for allowing me to pay her a visit on short notice! Thanks so very much Barb!

Mothers Originals Quilt Shop - Pequot Lakes, MN

It's a rainy day here in Pequot Lakes Minnesota but you'll feel heart warmed once you step inside Mother Originals Quilt Shop.

Extra nice "Up North/Minnesota" themed room.

Winter is what's its about here and I think I saw snow on the ground here this morning!

Two long arm machines!
I personally love this collection of rich textural neutrals.
There's an awesome kids fabric room too!
Being a 'horsey girl' myself this fabric made me smile!
Great idea for Christmas gifts, here you see a special pillowcase for the holiday season.
Hexagon 'cheater' with coordinates.

Nice selection for your sports fans!
I was delighted to find a large selection of Hobbs batting!

Click here or on the image to visit the Hobbs website for more info on this wonderful product!

And now for the grand finale of the visit to this shop. Mary the shop owner has two children that are quilting and winning prizes with their quilts!
This quilt was made by Mary's daughter Dana age 7. Isn't it awesome?

And this beauty was hand painted and quilted by her 13 year old daughter Morena!

Here's a close up. The quilt is titled, "Kingdom of The Crimson Dragons"
I think these quilts are amazing! Mary, thank you for sharing the work of your talented daughters with us all!

If you like the work of these two young quilters please leave a comment for them below!

Sew Pieceful Quilting - Tomahawk, WI

Hi Everyone! I'm in beautiful Tomahawk Wisconsin at Sew Pieceful Quilting!

It's a lovely fall day and the scarecrow is welcoming me.
Meet shop owner Marie Daigle.
Here's the view from the front door. Gotta love those beautiful wood floors and the fabric collections not bad either!

Christmas ideas! Tis the season.
And speaking of Christmas, did you know my friend Lorrie Franz from bean counter quilts has a #1 selling pattern out right now? Here it is and you can get it here at Sew Pieceful!
Now here's something you don't find in every quilt shop, this is Alpaca Wool from an Alpaca farm just south of Tomahawk. (Or did she say lamas?) Anyway it's lovely and hand dyed too!
Great supply of fat quarters!
Special corner just for the little ones in our lives.

A great source of "Up North" themed fabrics.
Of course I am always delighted to see one of my own Scrap-bags patterns in a shop!! This is Button Bows & Yo-Yo's a great learning quilt with easy piecing, easy applique and optional Yo-Yo's.
