Where have I Been?

Good grief!  I just looked  and realized I haven't posted here since March!  Wow!  Well alot has certainly happened since then, most notably...Matthew and I got married!! 

We enjoyed a wonderful two week honeymoon and are back settling into contented married life.

We also moved The Quilt Bear studio to Matthew's basement after painting and laying flooring.  It looks wonderful and is all ready for visitors.  Let us know when you are in the area.  We would love to have you.

We hope you are all having a wonderful Thanksgiving and are as blessed as we are!

New Products

We are so excited!!  We have ordered all kinds of new fabric and patterns and they have started to arrive!!

The Quilt Bear now carries Moda fabrics!!

Check out the softest minky fabrics we have ever felt...and I have felt a lot of fabric!!  This minky is from Shannon Fabrics and we have several kits available in lots of color ways.

New fabrics from Moda are available from the Java line.

Available in Charm Packs, Layer Cakes and Jelly Rolls as well as yardage! 

Next up is the coolest marking pencil ever!  The Sewline making pencil and glue pen are amazing!  We got to try them out and the lead just glides across the fabric.  No snagging!  The glue pen dries clear and no gumming up!  Both are available in the new gift box set!

There are many more new products and we keep adding everyday!  Check out the Moda Fabric Page for a sneak peak at what's coming up.
Thank you everyone for making our first year in business a successful one!!
