visiting teacher

Both of my sisters are coming to visit at the end of the month!  I am crazy excited about it.  We have been luckier than most families who live far apart, since I just saw both Mary and Judith in January.

Judith (middle) turned 50 and we were in Massachusetts for her birthday.
I went cross country skiing for the first time!

Now it's their turn to come home to California.  Our mom is celebrating her 80th birthday with a family reunion.

While they are here visiting, I have asked my sister Mary to teach a quilting class!  So if you sign up early to save your seat, she will teach you how to make the Arrowhead Quilt.

Saturday, July 26
11:00 am - 3:00 pm / $30.

We will have a fun time of sewing, snacks, and a few door prizes!
Sign up and pay for your class - you will receive 10% off your class supplies.
Call (916) 209-3930 or come in to register.

pillowcases for soldiers

Every month we meet in the shop to sew Pillowcases for Soldiers.
And I know many of you love to sew, but don't have the time
to come in and sew with us.
Today, I finally took some time and looked up a video tutorial.
This is a great video from Missouri Star Quilt Co.
If you make a pillowcase for a soldier,
we would love for you to drop it off,
you are also welcome to mail it:
Sew Katie Jean
603 5th Street
Lincoln, CA 95648

Thank you!

she wished every morning

was a Pam Kitty Morning!  I just met with my fabric rep yesterday and ordered all I could of the the newest Lakehouse Fabrics.

These will be sent to my shop in November, maybe January. Do you think you can wait that long?

Until then, visit Pam and her cute, inspirational blog and see what she is up to.  Usually a bit of sewing, quilting, and a bunch of cuteness.  Did I mention cute...

pillowcase raffle

The pillowcase raffle is over.  I have been calling all of the lucky, lucky winners and it has been so fun to see them come into the shop and pick up their Designer Pillowcase.

Judi won the pillowcase from Pam Kitty Morning, Lakehouse Fabrics

Marge won the pillowcase from Me & My Sister Designs, Moda Fabrics

and Fabienne won the pillowcase from Bari J.
of Art Gallery Fabrics

Thank you everyone again for buying tickets! And to all of the wonderful ladies who participated in making a pillowcase to raffle. We were able to raise $100. That money will be used in shipping pillowcases to active duty military.  We love being able to sew for them as our way of saying thank you for all they do.

p.s. There are more pillowcases that have been won through the raffle.  And when those winners come in, I will be sure to take a picture of them too :)

pick strawberries day

Today is Pick Strawberries Day!

I wish I lived someplace where I could pick my own.  But I do live in California, and that is just the next best thing.

Heather Ross, Briar Rose Strawberries

On Mother's Day, Strawberry Shortcake was my dessert request. My own mom did the cake.  She called it a one egg cake, it was like a big biscuit.  And I loved it so much better that if it was a moist cake.  Topped with fresh strawberries and our own whipped cream. Yum!
