JaM Patch News --- A New Look for the Patch
Well, wasn't the quilt show in Palm Beach the cat's meow!!! Congratulations again to all who participated and especially to Karen Marchetti for a fabulous Third Place with "Oliver." It was so good to see the group from Gone to Pieces, Martin County Quilters, I Candy Quilts, Journey and I am sure more with their very special exhibits. It was so cool to know so many owners and designers of the beautifully hung quilts. Again thank you to all who worked hard to get a quilt done, arrange for the exhibits and attend the wonderful show.
The JaM Patch has been busy. We decided that many of you would be in Palm Beach and so what a great time to rearrange the store and start the process of getting ready for our Fifth Birthday. Well, aching hands, backs, legs and a week and half later the store is done. For those of you who ventured in, the dust was a flying and we finished it without a problem. Wait till you see Batik Land (our sample room), a new area in front of the register and we hope a new way to help you find the COLOR you need for your quilt. The store has been arranged per color. If you need pink, we have tried to arrange all the pinks in an area who you can see what we have in PINK. The only bolts that have stayed true to their being are Batiks, Gee Bend Solids, Tropicals or Florida scenes, Free Spirit/Westminster designer area, Christmas and, of course, the brand new fabric as it arrrives. We hope this will assist you in chosing wisely. We hope you like it as much as we do, but bear wih us. We are relearning the store as well.
Speaking of new fabrics.....well, for those of you who attended Market Review, you will not be surprised. A beautiful line of Owls called "It's a Hoot" by Mo Mo. It certainly is a hoot!!!!! Love the bright colors. Here is a link to the page for info on the fabric line. www.unitednotions.com/fcc_its_a_hoot.pdf What do you think!!!! We also receive in the Bingo fabric again from Timeless Treasures and the beautiful Florida themed novelities. Saw the cutest overnight bag done in a travel novelty. What a great gift! There are so many new patterns and books and rulers and everything, oh my!!!! A trip to the Patch should be on "Your To Do List." Here is a sampling........
