Events and happenings at Folktales

Check this out!  Folktales has the honor of displaying the Western Washington Shop Hop Quilt this year!

 So Many fun blocks!  All the shops have the posters so check out which block was designed by each store.
 And Fay Isminger has sent her trunk show to Folktales.  AWESOME stuff.  She uses watercolor colored pencils to bring her stitcheries to life.
Here is her newest Fall Stitchery: 



 "Ducks in a Row"
 Her new "Summer Cottage"  embroidery with some applique

So many fun blocks...I think they would be a lot of fun to make up individually as well as the whole wall hanging.
 Summer time chillin'

 "Chicken Pageant"
 This one has a chicken for every month-and they are all hysterical

And here are a few bits and pieces of the "Spring" stitchery


And then there is more new Christmas fabric...
 So much FUN!
Hope you have a chance to visit soon and see ALL the great new stuff from Quilt Market and all the new samples we've been whipping up!  And if you are participating in Shop Hop, Happy Trails!

new samples made

 This is a new tote bag I made using my Shop Hop Block for the pockets on the front and back

This is a new pattern from Wooden Spool Designs called "Night Owl".
And this is a sample of Mary and Bright's Snowflake.  My friend Caryn did some of the whipstitching on this one while we were at Quilt Market.  Thanks, Caryn!
 Mary King helped with this new sample from Little Red Button Company.

And this one is by Norma Whaley. Her new pattern company is called "Timeless Traditions". Love it!

 A new table runner pattern from
Buttermilk Basin.  Caryn helped with this sample, also.
 New brushed cottons from place to put them!  I need a very large shoehorn.

And here is a lovely new floral selection...

Another version of "Speck" by Mary King

 And one of the brand new pincushion patterns from "Cottonwood Creations"

As you can see there are all kinds of new goodies arriving daily and lots of new samples to check out, thanks to the help of my friends!  Things are also gearing up for Shop Hop.  Mark your calendars for June 19 through 23!
