JaM Patch News --- Christmas and Halloween Specials as well as books

Happy Fall to all,

Fall is in the air!  It actually felt a little cooler the past few evenings.  (or the candy corn has gotten to our heads!)  The kids are back in school, the snow birds are planning their decent to the south and we are continuing to create for the Holidays.  We have some great gift ideas again this year as well some old favorites renewed.

New Items
Wait till you see the new fabrics from Andover.  The vintage kitchen look of "Early Bird" is so cute!  Just can't wait to get a few samples made.  If only there were about 8 hours more a day available. 
Monday, Sept 20th Margy will be teaching Beginner Fusible Applique.  This class, Pumpkin Vine, will show you the basics of the fusible applique process.  Check out our web page for details.
On Tuesday, Sept 28 Joey will host a Pumpkin Farm gathering.  These appliqued and stuffed fellows will sure to make you smile. Joey has re-done the pattern in cotton fabric and will share her information in class.
Wednesday, Sept 29th The first of our "Beach Walk" sessions begins.  If you are constructing this wonderful quilt or individual blocks we are here to help.  Attend any of the "Beach Walk" sessions for just $10, or FREE when you  purchase the kits here.

Did you know there is a local quilt show?  The House of Refuge, 301 SE MacArthur Blvd in Stuart, is hosting a display of quilts from the Martin County Quilt Guild.  The quilts can be viewed on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays September 21st through October 2nd, 1 - 4pm.  Please make an effort to view these great accomplishments and support the House of Refuge.

A note to our Civil Warriors-  I miscut the fabrics that did not work in Block 10.  The 12 1/2" block only took an hour to complete!  UGGGG! Relax and enjoy the process and think of all we are learning.  See you next month.  Thimbleberries Club will be meeting on Friday and Saturday from 10am to 2pm. Look forward to seeing you there.
