Our “Girl Clubs” are fun to belong to because they are a way of gifting yourself with a unique new and exciting handwork project that most people don’t have. It will most likely pertain to the upcoming season or holiday. We try to keep our projects exclusive and partner with our favorite designers so you know you will have something that is one of a kind.
I hope you will find your new clubs very enjoyable and if you have not tried one I hope you will give us a call 608-588-2510.
For anyone joining clubs please read carefully:
It is your responsibility to call us if you change your credit card number or have had it compromised or have a new address. Please , if we call you once, call us back to let us know if you have any changes or wish to be taken off the club. We do not want to make call after call and never hear from you. If we have to call you more than twice and not hear from you, you will be taken out of the club. I’m sure you can understand that this can become a problem for us and we must figure out when enough is enough. Thank you for being mindful.
Just when you think you have seen it all! It’s time for us to dream up something new for you to love. I have been thinking about this idea for the past three months and the shop girls already have been working on projects we were thinking might fit this idea. We are all in now and I am ready to see if I can peak your interest and get you tied to the past with us.
Introducing our Newest Girl Club for 2017! My Dream Team!
This is a club made up of some of my favorite designers that have been with me over the past 34 years and helped mold our shop into what it is today. I couldn’t be more pleased over this new club. Joining us in 2017:
Plum Street, The Scarlet House, Pineberry Lane, La D Da, Chessie and Me, and Blackbird Designs! What do you think Soul Sisters?
Welcome aboard the newest girl club:
“Soul Sisters Handwork”
The club will begin in March/April this gives us time to get you registered and our featured designer ready to go and us ready to ship. Lori Markovic from La D Da is going to get this new club rolling. As you can see we will ship every two months with a new designers project and be ending the club in January/February of 2018.
This is what I know: May June is Plum Street, July August is The Scarlet House, September/ October is Blackbird Designs, November/December is Pineberry Lane, and January / February of 2018 is Chessie & Me! I see nothing but amazing when I look at this dream team.
Our registration is OPEN and we can’t wait to hear from you.
Each designer has artistic license to choose fabric count and thread preference, the designs will be new and exclusive for the year. The cost I am just estimating at this point because I know it will vary. I am thinking between $40 – and $65 and if a larger project or silks a bit more. This is going be so much fun and the anticipation knowing these designers is even more exciting.

“2017 Tied to the Past”
The name of this New Girl Club tells the story. These are all quilts from the past and they were tied quilts in the beginning. 2017 of course brings another new twist to this amazing club. We will continue to use textures and draw from our reproduction fabric in the shop, the quilting on the quilts will be traditional, but nothing will be tied this year. This year we are focusing on our favorite antiquities, beautiful fabric brought back to life with a new purpose, a way of modernizing history so to speak. Suzanne is working on the first new quilt for the year and after seeing it today I feel confident you will be very pleased.
There will only be four shipments per year.
Please note: Pictures are from the past but new will be posted soon.
We are ready to ship your last project for 2015. It looks like it was Tied to the Past and just surfaced out of the steamer trunk. Here is are a few peeks. You can expect to find it in your mail boxes this week December 12th. I hope you enjoy these great old heirloom pieces we are creating for your enjoyment. Suzanne created this great worn and loved quilt for you.

Linda Thraen was a new face to our club members in 2013 and she has not disappointed any of us. Her company is called: “The Pinkeep”. We all had the great pleasure of actually meeting her as she attended our Boxwood & Berries Gathering in 2013 and she was a guest designer at the 2014 Boxwood & Berries Gathering sharing the teaching responsibilities with Maggie Bonanomi .
Our last design for 2015 from “The PinKeep” came just in time for the holidays. I know everyone has lovedtogether all of her past designs. The “1872 Thread Keep and Pinkeep” was stitched on 30 count Weeks Straw with overdyed threads, wool, fabric, rings and ribbon all included . Here is a picture of Linda’s “Sarah Hand’s Simple House”.
Time for Christmas and that is just what Linda’s project is all about’ it is called “Home for the Holidays”. Everyone enjoyed this great primitive pinkeep drum.

We have room in this club to take on new members so this would be a great way to get started in this amazing and fun Girl Club. The cost of this kit is $40.00. If you are interested in joining our 2017 Club please give us a call.
Here is a picture of our first 2017 club project. We are thrilled, Stacy is including more special materials this year and some exceptional New finishing ideas. Our first project for 2017 is called “Peacock Peacock Needle Keep”. The interest comes in the finishing and how sweet the velvet heart tucks into the little keep by pulling the ribbon its attached to on one end and to pull out you use the ribbon attached at the other end. Sweet for sure!
Stacy’s club debut was in 2009 and oh my goodness we can not believe the response we have had because to date this is our most popular girl club. We have over 200 members. Now that is what I call girl power! Thank you all for your confidence in us and Stacy’s wonderful primitive designs. This is Stacy’s newest offering for 2017. .
