News to Use from RQ October 24th
Posted by KJCB on October 24, 2019
This weekend is Fall Quilt Market in Houston for quilt shop owners and industry professionals. Sadly, we will not be attending this year; however, we are excited about many of the new fabric collections that you will start seeing on social media! We've met with some of our fabric sales reps already and can't wait to share which new collections will be headed to RQ in 2020! On to the news...
We've been informed by Bunny Hill Designs that there was an error in our shop cutting guide for month one of My Redwork Garden. The piece of the Cobblestone Cream 2957-15 in your month 1 package was not sufficient for all that you need to cut. We will send additional yardage of this sku in your month 2 package. This only impacts those receiving My Redwork Garden as a monthly BOM project and not those who purchased a full kit.
What's New at RQ
When is your favorite season: Autumn, Winter, Spring, or Summer? Seasons by Jason Yenter for In the Beginning celebrates each of these unique periods we experience throughout the year. Nine digitally printed skus in four colorways make up this group. In addition to the yardage, each season has a corresponding quilt made with large half-square triangles to show off the beautiful fabrics! Browns for Autumn, blues for Winter, purples for Spring, and greens for Summer as shown above.
Seven Seas by Whistler Studio for Windham Fabrics has "sailed" into RQ! Maps, compasses, and globes are all included in this collection. The neutral colored palette helps exude a tradtional feel to any quilt project. Two great projects are available from Seven Seas: Compass Point (featured above) and Around the World both by Heidi Pridemore. Choose a quilt kit and then be sure to order the coordinating extra wide backing!
Stitch in Time by Makower and Andover is a vintage-themed sewing collection. The main print has a sewing montage or choose from the individual notion prints: scissors, thread spools, or irons. Add a ditsy floral or a linen texture print to coordinate. Sewing-themed fat quarters make great stocking stuffers for your fellow sewists/quilters ;)
November 2nd: November Block of the Month Meeting: BOMB BLAST!!
November 7th - 10th: RQ Mill House Machine Embroidery Retreat
Did You Know?
This will be the last week for our Halloween fabric and quilt display in the front of the store. We'll be moving our remaining Halloween fabrics into storage beginning November 1st. If you haven't been in recently to see Charlotte's Spooky Night Kit or Kyla's Twister Treat Cat then do so before next week! It's not too late to throw together a trick-or-treat bag or "spooky" Halloween table runner before next Thursday :)
