FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

1. Why should I shop at your store instead of the bigger stores online?

Answer: Because we own our building (and live in the middle of nowhere) our overhead is lower so we are able to pass those savings on to our customers! We are small enough to give a higher level of customer service and help you with problems. We have a great selection of “go with” fabrics! Because we list the products with names and order numbers we can help you find the extra fabric you may need when you run out in the middle of a project!

2. How wide is your fabric?

Answer: Most of the bolts are a standard 44” wide. Our extra wide fabric that is usually used for backs of quilts are usually 108” wide but a few range up to 118” wide.  Most of our "minky" type fabric is 60" wide however we have 90" wide now also!  If you see a backing on-line or in a magazine we will do our best to order it for you!

3. What is a “fat quarter”?

Answer: A regular quarter yard would be cut at 9” across the width of the fabric but some patterns are more conducive to a larger piece and fit better on a fat quarter. This is when we cut a half yard width and cut it in half to give two pieces that are 18 x 22”. One of those pieces is still a quarter yard but now it is “fat”.

4. What is a “pattern repeat”?

Answer: When you have a printed fabric with a design, that design will repeat it self down the fabric length. For some projects like kaleidoscope quilts you will need to know how often that repeat begins. Some of the standard repeats are usually 12”, 24” or 36” for a large panel.

Hosted Retreat with a Healthy Twist
The most common question I get is how do I do all that I do?!?   I would love the opportunity to share some of the things that I study every day and try hard to implement in my life.  I love feeling wonderful and would like to help anyone interested in finding ways for you to feel great every day too!  It will be structured with a bunch of mini-classes covering a variety of topics so you can pick and choose what you want to sit in on.  I am not an "expert" in any one field (well, except birth and breastfeeding) but I love to study and help others find things to help their situations.  I don't diagnose or prescribe and I'm not just trying to sell anything but there are some products that I have found that do wonders.  I'm not pushing any agenda or any one company - I just like to help people.
Here are some topics that I'll probably cover:

Breastfeeding - even though you may be past this part of your life there are always daughters and grand daughters that may need help and support!
Birth - again, you may be past this phase of life but we all have someone we can support with good information!
Vaccines - This is a touchy subject but you may want to know more about what is being shot into your body and what are the alternatives?
Sweeteners - which ones are good or bad?!?  How do they affect your body?
Diet - What is a "good" diet?  How do I tell which foods are good for me?
Supplements - There are so many out there - where do you begin?
Essential Oils - what are they and how do they work?
Homeopathy - What is it?  

This is just a start - give me ideas of what you would like to hear about 
or just come and have fun sewing!!
