Antiques, friends and stitching..Oh my!

Hey there Friends!
Good times were had by Stacy and Lola in Lee's Summit Missouri!  We met the most amazing women who were students and teachers.......talented, kind and a ton of fun.  The food we ate was good..... maybe not good for us......but what are vacations for right?  This part of the country has outstanding antiques, friendly faces and a bit of all I can say is "southern charm".  The classes Stacy taught were with women who were keen on learning and motivated to stitch ......an awesome combination for a class!  We will never forget the kindness given, the stories shared and the memories made...and of course all the laughing!  Thanks gals you are the best!!  And now, some photos for you to enjoy..........

More News..More Goodies....

Dear Friends, 
Before we go to the new posts just an FYI......
No orders will be shipped for the rest of this week due to traveling to Primitives of the Midwest.  Please email any questions, concerns or orders and we will respond after June 26th.

We handed out the following information at the MN Quilt Show and thought it only fair to spread the word on the blog about some new changes......so at the risk of repeating ourselves.....
Enjoy!  We will be checking in as we travel to Missouri... might be a giveaway somewhere along the road!

Done with one off to Another!

We must give a huge shout out to all the gals who stopped by our booth at the Minnesota Quilt Show this past weekend!  We had a blast laughing and chatting with our old friends, new friends and all the wonderful vendors.  The feedback we received about the booth, samples and patterns was overwhelmingly kind.  Thanks for all the support and encouragement you continue to shower on the Basin!  

Now that we are done with the MN Quilt Show it is off to Primitives of the Midwest in Missouri for 4 days of teaching.  Ought to be a fun car ride stopping at quilt and antique shops along the way.  Then home for July and trying to do some catching up in the studio, designing and hanging out with family!

Here are a few photos from the MN Quilt Show I wanted to share (more to come).  We will try to keep you posted as we make our way to Primitives and we might even have a little hint about what's coming up in the next several months at the Basin!
