Lone Star Quiltworks presents a 

Kimberbell's Kitchen!  

This just in!  We are proud to announce that we are now a Certified Kimberbell Shop! 

This means we can put on these AWESOME two-day events where you will create six "in the hoop" machine embroidery projects at the event.  

All of your supplies and your lunch will be provided along with some amazing surprises we cannot share at this time!  These projects are NOT for sale to the general public. They are only available to attendees of a Kimberbell Event presented at a dealer certified shop, and that would be us!


Kimberbellskitchen_socialmedia-3

Enter Kimberbell's Kitchen!  Where you can have your cake and stitch it too!

Our second Kimberbell event will be the Kimberbell's Kitchen!  In this two-day event you will make six EXCLUSIVE in the hoop projects including a vintage mixer applique apron, a cherries dish towel holder, a "cherry on top" cutwork tea towel, a lovin' from my oven bread basket, a chenille frosted layer cake hot pad, and a sprinkles recipe book cover! You do need to have an embroidery machine to participate or can rent one of our Baby Lock embroidery machines for $10 per day.  

The minimum hoop size required for these projects is a 6" X 10".

If you are new to machine embroidery and wanting to learn, these events are a great way to get a taste of exactly what you can do with this part of the sewing/quilting world!

Cost for this event is $209.00. I am offering an Early Bird signup from now through March 24th.  With this Early Bird special you will get a $20 Gift Certificate to use at the shop, so your final cost will be $189.00

 Painter's Garden

 A 9-month Block of the Month by Nancy Rink

Painter_s_Garden

We love Nancy Rink patterns!


We still have a few spots left in this BOM so I thought I would re-send the information!  If you would like to sign up please see the information at the bottom of this email.

 

We have offered several of Nancy's other Blocks of the Month at our shop.  We love her because her patterns are well written and contain concise directions for each block. 

 

Her newest offering shown above is called Painter's Garden.  Painter's Garden is a 102" X 102" sized quilt top using Nancy's newest line of fabrics Twilight Tones by Marcus Fabrics. This color palette incorporates teal, dark rose, and greens into this quilt top.  Here is a link to the fabrics she

used Twilight Tones for your viewing. 

 

Painter's Garden will start in March 2018.  This is a 9-month Block of the Month and the pattern gives you the option of either piecing your blocks or appliqueing them. The picture above shows the appliqued center version.  If you choose the pieced only version the block centers will be pieced. 

 

Each month's block kit will contain the fabrics for that section of the quilt and the pattern, with the final month containing the finishing fabrics and binding. 

 

Our first pickup date will be Tuesday, March 6th, 2018.  Successive blocks and your monthly pattern will always be ready for pickup and/or shipping on the first Tuesday of the month thereafter. 

 

Participation in the Painter's Garden Block of the Month will require a credit card to be on file at our shop.  Cost for this project includes a sign-up fee of $20.  Your monthly charge will be $21.99 per month plus applicable tax and shipping.      

 

If you are local and would like to see the actual fabric samples we have them at the shop!

 

Would you like to sign up?

 

Contact us at the number listed below to participate in this beautiful quilt project.  Spaces are limited so please call us as soon as possible to reserve your spot.  Sign up by February 6th and receive a free gift with your first month's pickup!

Lone Star Quiltworks

  a colorful class!

 

We are privileged once again to have the stupendous Jan Mathews back at Lone Star Quiltworks for a very interesting class. 

Join Jan on Thursday, February 22nd as she shows you what makes a quilt "pop" with Color Theory. 

See details below.

Please note this class is by request due to the number of students who took this class from Jan in 2015, 2016, and 2017, and now claim they truly understand color selection for their projects, plus the use of color in their personal lives as well.  Our students are still raving about the way Jan will help you understand "color".  This is our first 2018 class so come and join us!

What a nice tribute to Jan's level of teaching expertise!

Color_Play

"Color Play"

Do you have a quilt you stopped working on because you are just not happy with how your fabric is working in your project?  Bring it to class and let's get you back on track so you can mark that project off the UFO list.

This one-day class will discuss the color wheel, relationships between colors, fabric as a medium, and how to use elements of color to enhance your fabric selections so you will achieve your goals and objectives. Through exercises and discussion of projects you will have hands on experience with applying your new knowledge. 

Come prepared to learn while you play!  

Class size is limited to twelve students. 

Cost of class is $55.00, with purchase of book required.  

Time is 10A-3P.  

An optional lunch may be ordered at class signup.

Bel Canto

A Seriously Musical Quilt


Bel_Canto

We haven't done a batik block of the month in a while!


Bel Canto means "beautiful singing" in Italian.  This gorgeous musical quilt uses patterns named Concerto, Sonata, Crescendo, Duet, Ensemble, and Nocturne.


The Stonewash batik line that is used is by Timeless Treasures.  This quilt top pattern is very unusual in that it uses 6 individual quilt patterns by Cozy Quilts to make this huge 110" X 110" quilt top containing both 2 1/2" strip sets and 8 1/2 yards of cut yardage.  Each pattern can additionally be made into a separate BONUS quilt if you choose!  This is a very different take on a Block of the Month quilt because essentially you will end up with six separate patterns that can also be used at a later date in addition to your quilt top!

Bel Canto is a 7-month Block of the Month that we will be starting in April of 2018.  Signup fee will be $20 per student and your monthly fee for 7 months will be $44.99 + applicable tax + shipping if required.  Participation in this block of the month will require a credit card to be on file at Lone Star Quiltworks.  Pickup date for Bel Canto will be the 2nd Tuesday in April, (April 10th), Successive blocks and your monthly pattern will always be ready for pickup and/or shipping on the second Tuesday of the month thereafter.

Kaffe_mystery

You asked for it and we will comply!  Many of you have asked us to carry Kaffe Fassett fabrics by FreeSpirit.  Many of Kaffe's fans have asked him to design a Block of the Month, 1.3 million fans to be exact!  


Well, we have some exciting news for you.....Kaffe has designed a 10 month Puzzle Mystery Block of the Month that will start in March of 2018.  We only know a few things that we can pass on to you because it is a MYSTERY!  The finished size will be 82" X 82", the block design will be fairly simple, and there are two color ways to choose from, a light and a dark both done in his Kaffe Fassett Collective fabrics.

  • Each month's instructions will come on a 5" X 7" card.
  • You will receive 12 yards in total of fabric, to include your binding for the entire BOM, however, this does not include your backing fabric.
  • You will receive a calendar of monthly Give-Aways from FreeSpirit's website that you can enter to win!
  • You will receive a collectible Kaffe fat quarter with each of the 10-month fabric pickups!

This is just too good to be true!  And all for the price of $19.99 per month plus sales tax and applicable shipping. We will need to collect a $10 signup fee to hold your space.  (Please note we will ship the most inexpensive way possible to you.) 

Our first pickup date will be Tuesday, April 3rd, 2018.  Successive blocks and your monthly pattern will always be ready for pickup and/or shipping on the first Tuesday of the the month thereafter.

New Friends of Lone Star Quiltworks Group!


Facebook is a very strange animal these days!  Basically, if you do not pay to advertise with them it is now estimated that less than 3% of the posts you send out reach your business page followers.  As such a workaround is to create a private group.  So, we have created a Friends of Lone Star Quiltworks Group and I have been slowly adding some of you who are friends with me on Facebook.  If you would like to have me add you to this group please email the shop at lonestarquiltworks@gmail.com.  I can then send you an email invite to be added to the group.  Or if you currently use Facebook you can search for the group by name and request to be added.  Our goal is to talk about and share things quilt related, along with lots of photos, early information regarding new shop products, classes, clubs, upcoming events, etc. and just plain old fun!  We have about 80 members right now and are steadily growing!

Our newest favorite quilt -

Scrap Petal Gardens!

We fell in love with this modern scrappy quilt at Spring Market!  Fast forward, sample made, and we are now carrying both the pattern and the petal templates.  This is a fun quilt to make to use up some of your favorite scraps.  We always hear you have a few of those hanging around! We changed up the pattern a bit to make it even "scrappier" and have included both an addendum and photo to the original pattern for your use.

 

The template is optional but sure makes

this quilt work up fast!

light_bulb

Do you have a Singer Featherweight, or perhaps a 301?  Have you burned your hand on the light bulb?  While the older Singer machines are still chugging along one of their drawbacks is the "hot" lightbulb they require.  Did you know that you can now replace that bulb with an LED bulb?  They are brighter and super low heat.  You just pop out the old bulb and insert the new one!  We love them!  Singer Bayonnet Bulb

Do you have a Baby Lock Ellisimo?  If you do we have a deal for you.  We have two Ellisimo Extension tables regularly priced at $199.99 now on special for $99.99.  Extend your sewing and quilting area with these great tables! 

 

We also have one Baby Lock Ellisimo couching foot in stock regularly priced at $99 on special for $49.99.  Both of these items are first come, first served.  Please call the store and ask for Terry or Deb to order either the table or the foot!

Designed by Judy Rothermel for Marcus fabrics, the Aunt Grace "Basket of Scraps" is mostly a pieced top with just a little bit of machine or hand applique for the corner hearts.

Long Time Gone is a sampler quilt with a Modern Twist.  Jen offered it as a Block of the Month through her Amitie quilt shop.  She released it as a pattern in 2016.  According to Jen the name Long Time Gone reflects the fact that the quilt was lost not once, but twice, throughout her various moves back to Australia.

Long_Time_Gone_Book

Long Time Gone is a 67" X 68" quilt made up of 13 different blocks and variations plus sashing strips and checkerboard.  It can be made scrappy or planned and each quilt will be as varied and unique as its maker.

Our groups will meet one day each month beginning in January 2018.  Meeting dates will be January 10th, February 14th, March 14th, April 4th, May 9th, and June 13th.  Meeting times will be 10AM, 1PM, or 6PM.  Each month you will received directions and tips on specific sections of the quilt, which you will work on during the month.  You will be given instructions regarding how to fit the blocks into sections and the sections into a finished quilt. 

An organizational meeting will be held on December 1st at 10AM or 6PM.If you are interested in joining us please call the shop at the number listed below to reserve your spot.  Cost for this club will be $10 per month and a credit card will need to be kept on file at the shop.

OUR PRICES ARE BETTER THAN THEIRS ARE!

We have received the International Quilt Festival Pricing list from Baby Lock and guess what?  We have better prices than they do by anywhere from $300 to $1000 less per machine! 

Come see us for that new sewing machine, sewing/machine embroidery combo, machine embroidery machine, or serger!

We would be honored to have you as a customer plus you can save a little money to boot!

Things you need to know!

1) Are you thinking about a new Handi Quilter quilting machine?  We have the Simply, the Avante, and the Infinity on our floor with the new Amara on the way.  Don't forget we have handi Quilter national educator Denise Best visiting us on November 11th and 12th.  Our floor Avante is on sale for $14,999!  Buy a Handi Quilter from us and we will throw in four classes for FREE! 

Here are the details:  Denise Best

Avante

2) We made a mistake and have some good news for those of you looking to sign up for our Kyle Field Stars 3.  We accidentally listed the monthly price as $21.99 when it should have been $12.99!  The signup fee will remain the same at $50.  I have attached a copy of the corrected email containing the $12.99 price.  We do still have 12 spaces available for this stunning Aggie themed quilt if you would like to join us. 

AGGIE_BOM

3) We have an awesome new product to share with you!  A 100% wool mat that you use for pressing.  The wool radiates the heat back up through the mat and provides a crisp, flat result for your piecing or blocks.  There are several brands on the market but we think this one is the best as is a larger size and 100% wool. Two of our employees have checked this out and we had a whole room of classroom students purchasing them last week.  Ask one of the lovely LSQW ladies to show you our sample in the classroom. We also have the cute little iron in the picture!

wooly_ironing_mat

4) We are always asked for quilt labels but often they are the "wrong" label for the customers use.  We found these cute little labels that you can purchase individually.  The picture below shows only six of them as we have many more.  The Quilt Care Instruction labels have been popular if you are gifting a quilt.  That way the recipient will know how to care for their quilt!

Zero % Financing!

 

Did you know that we offer zero percent financing on many in stock Baby Lock sewing, sewing/embroidery, sewing/quilting machines, and sergers?  What does this mean?

It means we pay the 

financing fee for you! 

For example, you can take up to 36 months to pay off a machine balance and if you choose you can pay it off early with no penalty.

Plus, you will receive a Synchrony Bank credit card that you can use at our shop for "other" purchases such as say fabric!  How sweet is that?

And, we have reduced our prices on 15 machines previously retailing for over $1000, so this is a win-win situation for you!  I have linked the newly repriced machines to the left for you to look at their attributes.  The links will take you directly to the Baby Lock website. 

I think you will find our prices are extremely competitive for the Baby Lock brand.

The technology that is available in the sewing machine industry has drastically changed in the last few years.  Are you still sewing on that "trusty" old sewing machine you have had for years and years? 

Why not treat yourself to a newer, quieter, better lit, more space to the right of the needle, guide beam placement, auto tension, needle down in the fabric, second spool for winding a bobbin, etc., etc., etc., new sewing, machine embroidery, or quilting machine from our store?  We would be honored to have your business!

Destiny2

Random Thoughts

We always hear people say that they don't "deserve" a new machine or they are too old for a new machine.  I cannot think of any one of our customers that does not "deserve" a new machine and "too old" is a relative term.  We are all only as old as we let ourselves feel and believe me when I say I speak from experience!  And you know what?  As the saying goes, “You can't take it with you when you are gone"!

When you are thinking about purchasing a new machine make certain that you will get after the sale "care".  By this I mean service, machine use classes, groups/clubs, and shop staff that can help you answer questions regarding use of the fabric and thread you will need for your new baby!

International Quilt Festival in Houston is right around the corner!  

Dates will be Wednesday, November 1st through Sunday, November 5th. 

 

  • Are you thinking about a new Baby Lock sewing machine, embroidery machine, or a combo machine with both?

 

  • Are you thinking about a Handi Quilter longarm for personal or business use?

 

  • Are you thinking about a Koala or Tailormade cabinet?

 

There will be some AWESOME deals in Houston, but guess what?  We will MEET or BEAT any deal you are offered. 

 

Plus, you will have the added advantage of after the sale follow-up for education and servicing on a local basis.  At our shop we work with fabric, thread, patterns, notions, classes, etc. every day we are open and have a supremely knowledgeable staff to help you after the sale!  Many stores just "sell" sewing machines but don't really use them to sew with!

 

Plus, an added bonus is if you purchase from us you keep your sales tax local in Brazos County!  Please give us a chance if you are in the market for any of the machines I have referenced above.

Did you know we have over 130 kits for sale in the shop and online?

 

These are just two of our most popular kits!  Norma has been teaching this as a class at our shop and we have been asked to kit it....so we have two kits, one in bluebonnet colors and one in Aggie colors! 

Both have been flying off the shelves since we posted on Facebook.

gloves

Fingerless Machine Quilting Gloves!

Do you love to machine quilt but have fussed with hoops or trying to hold onto your fabric while moving it under your free motion foot?  Enter the fingerless gloves above!  We discovered these gloves at Spring Market.  They were designed by a machine quilter and are made of micro-suede on the bottom with a breathable fabric on the top.  They will work with touch screen sewing machines so you don't have to keep taking your gloves on and off while quilting, and have a padded palm area.  If you wear rings you can continue to do so as the 4th and 5th finger are cut shorter onthese gloves. We have had good feedback from our customersalthough they do seem to run a little large. Fingerless Gloves

Autumn Armstrong Fundraiser

We are still selling pillowcase kits with all of the proceeds from the sale and all the pillowcases going to Phoebe's Home, our local domestic violence center.  I looked back and we turned in 160 pillowcases in 2015, and 225 in 2016.  I am hoping we can beat this for 2017!  We will be accepting both donations and the pillowcases until Saturday, September 30th if you would like to help.   Here is all of the information

Some new items to share with you!

Binding_Babies

Binding Babies

These sweet little girls have made it to our shop!  We discovered these cute gals at Spring Market.  Grab one to wrap your 2 1/2" binding in half and pull through the slot.  Keep wrapping your quilt binding onto your little girl and then place her on a vertical spool pin on your sewing machine.  Start sewing your binding on your quilt and pull your already folded binding back off while you are sewing.  How cool is that!  We have lot blondes, brunettes, and red heads in stock, with different colored polka dots! 

What a great gift for that special friend!

Dance of the Dragonflies

Have you seen this gorgeous Hoffman quilt kit?  Dance of the Dragonflies is a pre-cut and pre-fused applique kit using hand dyed Bali batiks that measures approximately 40" square.  You will need to add a Super Nova background choice, but what a stunning finish you will have!

Sulky_thread

Sulky Petites Display

We have added a new display that contains the top colors Sulky carries for their #12 Petites.  Their Petite line is great for hand embroidery and equals to two strands of embroidery floss.  The great part is you don't have to strip your floss with Sulky, you can pull off just what you need, no tangling, and a compact spool with snap ends for tidy storage. Sulky #12 can be used in your machine as well. Other uses are applique, couching, needle punch,

bobbin work, and more.

Hazelnut

Hazel Nutt by Laura Heine

Some of you were able to attend our Laura Heine collage class in April.  This is one of Laura's newest pattern, Hazel Nutt!  She is so cute and we have tons of background fabrics that would work perfectly with Hazel.  Finished size is 43" X 54" for Miss Hazel. 

Pattern includes full size templates and instructions.

  Alex Anderson and "the trick"!

 

Those of you that know me well know that before I bring a new product into the shop I do quite a bit of research about it. 

 

About a year ago at Market I happened upon Alex Anderson of long time quilting fame demoing a new rotary mat, new rulers, and a new rotary cutter. 

 

Right, so who needs another one of those I thought to myself!

 

Fast forward and I have followed these product reviews online.  They have been getting AMAZING reviews so at Spring Market I decided to go for it. 

 

These new mats are double sided, for light and dark fabrics!  Her rulers have a coating on the backside that prevents slippage when working with fabrics, and her rotary cutters are for both left and right handed customers! 

 

When working with the rulers if you are trimming the edges of a block you can "spin" your sewn unit around on the mat to reach all four sides, preventing you from cutting improperly and possibly injuring yourself. 

 

Alex has come out with the most popular ruler sizes that the majority of quilters are using and continues to introduce more as the demand grows for her product.

 

Here is a link to Alex demoing these products

 

Scroll down and to the right for the "trick" video!

 

Should you be in the market for a new mat, rotary cutter, or looking to add to your ruler stash I hope you will give these products a try.  We have had a few customers purchase them already since we put our shop display out and they have reported back to us that they love them.  This past week we had a "bee" visit us just because they heard we were carrying Alex's products!
