Now they have agreed to not only provide us with the presentation on their company history and products that we missed, but to give our guild members a private shopping day at their warehouse in Archdale. The presentation will begin at…Find out more »

Ready to join the craze? The Jelly Roll Rug craze, that is! One jelly roll or 40-2 1/2” strips of fabric and some batting are all it takes. You may chose the oval rug or the new rectangular rug (a bit easier), each approximately 30" by 44". Either is great for a powder room, nursery, kitchen, or just anywhere you may need a pop of color. We will also discuss in the workshop how to use this technique to make…Find out more »
