Check out our Christmas Room! We kept one decorated tree and swags and are moving all the Christmas projects and fabric into this area. Still have a few red-lined items that are 50% off. As the new products roll in for Cmas 2013, they are being moved to this area.
Check out our assortment of blenders. Because we make many Custom Quilts, we use a lot of blenders! Stonehenge by Northcott, Dimples by Andover, 1895 Hoffman Batiks, Robert Kaufman Fusions, Basic Backgrounds Tone on Tone in White, Neutral, Off White, Muslins. Love those Metallic Blenders!

Visit us and watch accomplished quilters at work. Take lessons. Bring in fabric mementos and let us create a keepsake memory quilt or T-shirt quilt.
More Pillowcase Marathon!
Thanks to all who helped make Pillowcases in Alma Sue's production line in October and November. The helpers and elves made 155 Pillowcases in September, 55 in October, and 50 in November. ConKerr Cancer distributes them to the kids in hospitals in the Tampa Bay and other area. There is a continuing need for pillowcases - did you know that each month All Children's Hospital has 400 new children admitted? And each child gets a pillowcase to brighten his hospital stay, and to take home with him. The chilren get to pick the one they want.
Alma Sue's made a commitment to ConKerr Cancer to make 50 pillowcases each month.
Date for the pillowcase sewing are:
Thursday December 19 from 11 - 4
All ages welcome. No sewing experience needed.
Bring a serger (or machine) or use ours in the Sewing Studio.
Donations of fabric are needed to make the Pillowcase kits.
Call Alma Sue at 941-330-0993 or just drop off the fabric.
Donations of quart size or gallon size zip closing bags are welcomed.
Each pillowcase gets laundered and placed into the bags for storage and distribution.
