What's New at RQ
Our final winter collection for 2019 has arrived and is now out on the shelves! Winter Playground by Dan DiPaolo for Clothworks focuses on winter sports. Snowshoes, sleds, skis, and snowmobiles are all found on a themed toss. Cozy plaids, snowflakes, and parquet prints round out the coordinates. Use the large square on the panel to make a coordinating pillow! The kit featured above is Rodeo "Winter Playground" using the smaller panel squares and fat quarters.
Our newest nursery collection is Safari Life by Stacy Iest Hsu for Moda Fabrics. Take a trip on a safari to see the zebras, lions, giraffes, and elephants up close in gender neutral tones. In addition to the yardage, there are two panels as only Stacy Iest Hsu can do them: stuffed safari animals and a Safari Life soft book panel. Not sure what to do with these prints? The collection has great pattern support and we're kitting three different projects!
Feeling blue with the end of summer just around the corner? Cheer up with the fun prints of Blue Crush by August Wren for Dear Stella. Cats, flowers, birds, cottages, and stripes in various shades of blue are found in these watercolor inspired prints. (I need one more blue quilt for my collection...right?!?!) In addition to the yardage, we will have a few kits available soon using these prints.

Did You Know?
We still have a variety of previously owned and demo machines available for purchase at great prices! David doesn't have any more room on his shelves with the new machine models arriving this week so he's cut prices on these machines that need to move. We have a mechanical 1008 machine, a few entry level machines (great for new sewists or travel), and a couple combination sewing/embroidery machines. Stop in during the next week while they are set-up in the classroom to test drive! Want to negotiate a deal? Come talk with David :)
