Crafty Quilter!

Just in time for Halloween (although this isn't a halloween quilt), we had show and tell with this absolutely fabulous quilt!
Okay, my photographic skills leave something to be desired.  This was actually snapped with my phone. It is a magenta background with rats, bats and vultures.  Lots of hand embellishment.  The closeup is better.
Thanks for sharing your art quilt!  (remember all of you quilters, whether traditional or 'art' quilts, we love show and tell.  Quilting in all it's forms is a fine craft and we love to see it all!

Today's Delivery - Fabric

Okay, so it's not unique to get boxes of fabric delivered to a new quilt shop.  It's just that I didn't expect these fabrics to arrive so soon and they are just so very pretty!
Fabrics from Westminster Fibers (Kaffe Fassett, Liberty Art!) and Free Spirit (houndstooth!)  Nice additions to our quickly growing stock.  Come by and see them and say 'hello'.

***Mark your calendar for our Grand Opening - November 19 and 20th*********

Fabrics for the Wise

We love owls.  And in being the home of the FAU Owls (and their soon to be build stadium) we celebrate the wise birds!

From a non-quilting owl interest, check out the live owl-cam.

A New Shop in Boca Raton

Hi Everyone!!!
I am proud to announce a new quilt shop in Boca Raton, Florida!!
I had wondered whether or not to have a separate blog and website for this shop.  The sister shop, Three Crafty Ladies in Sanibel has a website and blog that has been up for a while.  Both shops will have wonderful things - some the same and some different.
So, I decided to have a second blog for Three Crafty Quilters.  The website will be shared by both.

The doors are open at Three Crafty Quilters, however it is a work in progress (and a fun one at that!!)  New fabric is arriving almost every day.  The tables for classes came in on Thursday and we are waiting for chairs.  My shopping list for Quilt Market in Houston is growing daily.  Do you have any suggestions or wishes?   The shop is new in town so I am listening to my wonderful customers.

Speaking of customers,  I can't thank Tammy and the Gold Coast Quilter's Guild enough for their support and shear friendliness for Three Crafty Quilters.  I have been visited many times daily by guild members stopping by with wonderful well wishes (and often fabric need matches!)  I am so excited to be here in Boca with the new store and look forward to getting to know all of the wonderful, talented quilters in the area. Classes are being planned, as well as some social quilting time, so watch this blog and our newsletter for details.  Happy quilting!  See you soon!
