Today's deal is Coastal Treasures pattern from Poorhouse Quilt Designs and Heat Moldable Double-Sided Fusible Batting.   

Kris Poor is a local designer from New Hampshire and is the designer of the incredibly popular Fold 'N Stitch Wreath.  She is so creative, and her mind runs a mile a minute coming up with incredible ideas.  I love her stuff and actively try to support her creative endeavors.  

With this pattern, you can create a beautiful accent tray to hold candy, keys, jewelry, or business cards. All four designs are shaped with a heat moldable stiffener and can be glazed if desired.  In particular, I thought these designs were well suited to our customers since so many of us just love the beach/ocean.  

Regular price is $20.99 for the bundle.

One of my favorite things to eat is cake.  But cookies are a close second.  And what could be better than Christmas cookies!  So, to aid my addiction and to make you all co-conspirators, we are hosting a good, old-fashioned cookie swap on Sunday, December 18 at 2 p.m.  Here are the rules if you want to participate.  Yes, rules are important in this type of event.  I got them from a seasoned cookie swap hostess Robin Olson,"

1.  All cookies should be home made, baked, and the main ingredient must be flour.

2.  No plain chocolate chip cookies, cookie mixes, no-bakes, meringues, or bars.  Bring your A-Game.  These should be special Christmas cookies.  Many of you will put in a significant amount of time to make these special holiday cookies.  You will want to bring home cookies that were made with a similar amount of time and care.  

3.  Please bring four dozen total of one or two recipes of high-quality cookies.  Why four dozen?  You are going to want to have enough cookies to take home to enjoy for the holidays.  You come with four dozen, you go home with four dozen.  This will provide a large variety of cookies for everyone, and the table will look stunning!  Bake your cookies at least three days in advance. They need to dry out a bit so they transport well -  both going to the swap and coming home with you.  

4.  The theme is "Christmas cookies."

5.  Please arrange the cookies in a basket or platter and be creative.  Bring a large container for you to carry home your cookies.  

6.  Email a copy of your recipe before the party.  We will have recipes available for every participant to address any allergy concerns as well as so you can add them to your Christmas cookie recipe collection.

7.  Christmas attire is encouraged!

8.  RSVP as soon as you can and let me know what type of cookies you are planning on baking - no duplicate recipes 



Just a reminder about our new event at Emma's!  A friend mentioned this to me, and I thought it would be so much fun.  Let's do a Yankee Swap with homemade pin cushions.   

So the date is Saturday afternoon,  December 10, at 2 p.m.  Anyone can participate.  There will be a $5 sign up fee, which will be donated to the local food pantry for the holidays.   

Bring any wrapped homemade pin cushion to the event, and we will do a traditional Yankee Swap.  This is a great opportunity to create some really fun pin cushions, and a  $25 gift certificate will be awarded to the best pin cushion as determined by popular vote.   

Please sign up in advance  to participate so we can ensure we have enough participants.  This could be a great Christmas gift for a quilting friend! 

So grab a friend and join us for a really fun time!
