Stash Has Angels in our Midst

When we started this little store, we knew that we wanted an environment that was inspiring, fun, and creative. What I didn't realize how much our customers, which many have become friends, add to this place. Let me introduce you to Mary. Above is one of her latest projects-the Posh Tot pattern made with some of our new batiks. She is one kindest most generous people we know (I was hoping she would have come in this morning so I could add her picture to this post). We've been a bit overwhelmed at times needing to learn things quickly, or making samples showcasing great techniques or fabric. Mary just seems to know exactly what we might need. We learned about "quilting in the hoop"; look what Mary brought for us to show that technique. Check out the feather design on this table runner made with Sandy Gervais's Gobble Gobble. We didn't ask, she just knew we would like it and is willing to share it with us for awhile.

Then there are these tea towels. How adorable are they all trimmed and machine-embroidered.

...and look at the embroidery on the backside-
just as pretty as the front.

And finally look at this silk quilt she has made with the Summer Carnivale Silk Collection. This beautiful quilt was an investment of her time and money and she is more than willing to let us showcase it and share it with others. Thank you Mary; we love you!
