Good morning! It's a rainy Monday morning here in NYC and we think that it is the perfect weather for staying inside and doing a little quilting if you can. We are going to inspire you to do just that by hosting another Let's Get Quilting giveaway.

First, congratulations to Michele Timms. You are the winner of our Let's Get Quilting giveaway from June 8, 2015. Please contact us here to claim your prize.


This week we are giving away a bundle of Here Fishy Fishy by Heathere Mulder Peterson of Anka's Treasures. Let us know your what your favorite quilting notion is.
