Today marks the beginning of our 12 days of Christmas countdown, during which I will be writing for the next 12 days about some of the wonderful items we carry and why we like them.  I hope to provide you with gift ideas for your quilting buddies and family, and, of course, for yourselves.

 So how do you pass along your favorite gift ideas to your families?  Last year we saw a significant shift from printed postings clutched in the hands of family members to pictures on their smart phones.  So we know many of you forwarded our links to your family with an emoticon wink.  But if your family ignores your message, thinking it is another honey-do list , how else do you get their attention?  Let me list some ways:

– Put a copy of this post in the cereal box.
– Put a link on Facebook.
– Wrap the keyboard with a printout of all our e-mails of your desired
  Christmas  gifts.

All items are on our on-line webstore (, which has a secure server, or alternatively, you can call us on our local (403-253-4419) or toll-free number to order or inquire.

And in case this is your first Christmas with us, the opening tune is “The Twelve Days of Christmas”, and you’ll have way more fun if you sing along,

“On the First Day of Wishing,

 I’d like to put up the tree.”


Well, that is what we did this year, with this gorgeous wall hanging.  Actually, we put it up a few days ago, and it has been very popular.  Why? 

  • No needles to clean up
  • No ropes of lights to untangle.
  • Once made, goes up in 30 seconds.
  • It’s white – who hasn’t wanted a white Christmas tree?  (Natalie’s family had a white one and a green one.  I wasn’t jealous – just envious – you know, the better of the two “ous’”). 
  • You can spend this holiday season making it and countless future holidays enjoying it.
  • Doesn’t hog the floor space; only requires 40” X 42” of wall space.
  • $59.99 for the kit which includes the pattern, and fabric for top and binding.  If you want a matching backing of the frosted white Antique Acanthus by Lakehouse Dry Goods, we have deal (while quantities last) where you can purchase it for only $8.99/meter.  It comes to $12.59 for the backing and sleeve. 

Found on our webstore at:

As you might have guessed, we have limited quantities of some the products that we are featuring over the next 12 days.  So I highly recommend shopping early, either on-line or in-store.

Have a merry December 1st!


PS:  All prices referred to are in Canadian dollars. We happily ship world-wide.
