Farm Girl Vintage

Farm Girl Vintage Club will start in March!

Have you seen the Farm Girl Vintage Book by Lori Holt?  Using 30's fabrics there are a number of projects that can be made from the sampler on the cover to potholders, placemats, tablerunners, wall hangings, etc.  All the blocks are pieced--no applique and they are soooooo cute!  Fruits, stars, a house, a barn, a milk can, animals, canning jars, and more.

We'll be doing 6" blocks and throughout the 12 month period, you'll get fabrics each month for 4 different blocks so you'll have 48 at the end which is enough to make the sampler quilt on the cover or you can make any of the projects in the book.  Besides purchasing the book which has all the pattern w

e'll use (and more), each month will be $5.99 (for the 4 blocks).

If you choose to attend the club meetings, we'll be meeting the 2nd Wednesday of each month starting in March at 1:00pm for an hour.  Each participant will have a little tally card to keep track of stickers they may receive each month--for attending, having the previous month's blocks completed, and bringing something for show and tell.  We'll have door prizes each month and the people with the most stickers at the end will receive prizes as well!

There are samples of the blocks for the first 2 months in the store if you want to see them in person.......sign up over the phone or in person soon so we can get your first month's blocks cut!!!



The Most Sought After Pattern

clock January 9, 2016 06:31 by author Ruth

If you get our newsletter every week, (if you don't you should totally sign up for it) then you probably saw the pattern Fold N Stitch for the gorgeous centerpiece. The pattern originally made for Christmas and was meant to be a wreath that you could put on your door, but after it started flying off the racks the writer of the pattern decided to make it for all the seasons! And she also showed it as being used as a centerpiece! And if this pattern couldn't get any better it is 3-D! The 3-D effect will catch the eye of anyone that walks by it! It uses In-R-Form single sided fusible foam stabilizer that is used for the 3-D part. You won't want to pass this pattern by! And if you do decide to take a stab at this, then you can bring in the finished project so we can take your picture and put you on our inspiration board!

A Little about me

New Years as always been a favorite holiday of mine. Every year my grandparents, brother and I all go and stay at the Farmstead Inn in Shipshewana Indiana. They always have bingo, door prizes, a fun candy game, and a festive countdown. I always look forward to going every year. It is a tradition we have kept for 12 years and I hope we keep it going for many more. What is one of your favorite New Years traditions?



Is it Spring yet?

Now that the holidays are behind us we are getting ready for spring. Even though we still have a few more months of winter left we already have our spring samples, patterns and kits out. The shop is full of bright colors and fun projects. We have a bunch of new and fun wall hangings that are quick, easy, and not to mention, fun to make! Now is your chance to get a head start on your spring projects so you don't have to rush later to finish them in time. Now is also a good time to work on projects to use as decorations. We all have lots of Christmas decorations but do you have any for Valentine's day? St. Patrick's day? Easter? Well if you're like me you probably have neglected to think about getting decorations for any holidays besides Christmas. So why not change that and come find one of our new joyful and fun new patterns to decorate your house with!

   

Now don't worry I didn't forget to give you guys that cracker recipe many of you have probably patiently been waiting for. This was the cracker recipe for those delicious crackers Joyce made for our Christmas open house. And if you didn't happen to make it to our Christmas open house, or didn't get the chance to try these amazing crackers because they were all gone by the time you got here, then I highly suggest you make these and see what you were missing.

Saltine Cracker Mix

Mix in a 2 gallon zip lock bag:

1-1/2 tsp garlic power

1-1/2 tsp onion powder

2 T. Italian Seasoning

1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

1 tsp Lawry's seasoned salt

1-2/3 C. Canola Oil

     

Then Add all 4 sleeves of Saltine Crackers from one box.

Seal bag filled with air.

Toss crackers in bag every 5 minutes

or continually until seasoning and oil is absorbed.

Let crackers rest overnight for the best taste.

Refrigeration or freezing extends the flavor.

A little about me:

I have really enjoyed working for my grandma and writing this blog for you guys! Some of my co-workers have told me that I should start putting a little bit of something about me in some of the blogs. So since its almost Christmas I thought I would share one of my favorite Christmas traditions. Every Christmas eve my grandma takes the time to write out clues for my brother and me to go around the house and find our Christmas presents. It is so much more fun to go on a scavenger hunt to find the presents rather than just taking them from under the tree.

Have you made a Midi Bag yet

clock December 11, 2015 08:10 by author Ruth

Last Wednesday Kim and Shirley came in ready to tackle the midi bag class taught by Joyce. They both had tons of fun making their bags. Shirley even put her own spin on the pattern by changing the way she put and cut her fabric on the fusible. Kim also picked out gorgeous fabrics that made the final bag look absolutely stunning. Both ladies left with wonderful bags and smiles on their faces. Come stop in and pick up a midi bag pattern and the fusible interfacing to make your own lovely bag like Kim and Shirley.
