Quilt Corral Nov 2022 Newsletter

Howdy Quilt Corral Friends!
To market, to market! We have been to International Quilt Market!  We rarely get time together where we can brainstorm ideas for the shop. After three days together in Houston we have awesome new products and programs to bring to Quilt Corral. Stay tuned as products will be arriving over the next several weeks.

River Run Shop Hop
Thank you to everyone who came out for the return of the River Run Shop Hop. The winner of our in-store prize basket was Elaine Szymanski. Congratulations Elaine!! It was such fun to see old friends and also to meet so many new people. Thanks for including a stop at Quilt Corral.

by Northcott
Spirited is another great western line with a painterly look. At first glance you might think these fabrics are batiks but nope, they are beautiful printed cottons. Includes awesome tonals, a panel, a stripe and a stunning panel.

New Kits!
Autumn Shadow Box. This lap quilt kit showcases the softer side of fall. We have all the fall things you love - pumpkins and leaves in orange, adobe and muted greens set against a light taupe background giving the over all look a lighter and softer feel than most fall quilts. Perfect size for throwing over the arm of your chair and snuggling under as Mother Earth dials back the temperatures. The kit includes alternate cutting instructions making it a snap to make. This kit is Accuquilt Friendly!

Cats and Dogs Christmas Quilt Kit
Make a generously sized lap quilt with a nod to our furry friends! Traditional red and green plus fun turquoise and black prints are set against a icy white fairy frost background.

Focus on handwork

Shop here for the Peaceful candle mat.

New Notion!
The Original Ugly Thimble
Custom fit this clever leather thimble. We've had requests for thimbles but they are like shoes - they all fit a little differently and we didn't want to commit a whole display wall to thimbles. Then at quilt market we discovered The Original Ugly Thimble. It's a leather thimble designed to fit your finger exactly - fit it to whichever finger you use for pushing the needle.
Click here to get yours.

Focus on Accuquilt!
Accuquilt Friendly patterns are coming back. Look for this symbol on store samples.

Out of our area? Ask us about having your product shipped to you directly from Accuquilt for a small fee.

Little Stocking Die
We've seen so many clever uses for this die. Make 24 stockings and string them on a garland as an advent calendar. Use them on the holiday table to hold silverware and napkin. Fill them with small sewing notions for your quilting buddies.
For Little Stocking Die click here. If sold out call the shop to order.

Community Service Opportunity
We've received a request from our local veteran's assistance office. Each month they honor a local veteran of the month. (Barb's dad was honored a few months ago). They would like to present a Quilt of Valor at their monthly ceremony. Will you be willing to partner with Quilt Corral in making quilts for Veterans?

To kick off this new program, this month we are asking for donations of 12" blocks, any pattern in red, cream/white/or tan and blue fabrics. The blocks should measure 12 1/2" x 12 1/2" unfinished. You may drop them off at Quilt Corral or mail them to us at 245 W Wood St, Willows, CA 95988. Thank you in advance for being a part of this worthwhile community project.
