Row by Row 2018 is now live! Pattern is available for free for in-person customers at the shop, and we have kits available as well. Program runs through September 4th after which all stores will put their pattern into hibernation until late October. Remember you can only get the pattern and kit in person so be sure and brave the construction zone this summer and visit us for our beautiful block!

We love seeing this rainbow beauty hanging on the wall in the shop! Finishes at a small throw size of 48x64, the program runs for a quick 6 months and begins with a beautiful rainbow jelly roll. CLICK HERE and scroll down for full program details.
Isn't this quilt amazing? With the clever use of wide, pieced sashings, cornerstones, and setting triangles, this quilt only looks complicated! From Wing And A Prayer Designs, with newly released batiks from Timeless Treasures, it's a gorgeous neutral palette of mocha, soft grey, blues, and muted green. We will offer it as a BOM for 10 months, beginning April 2nd.

Splendid Sampler II is coming!
Splendid Sampler II is almost here! We had so much fun with the first series, we've decided to keep going! We will meet at 10:30 on July 7th to discuss our plan and strategy. You can sign up for the Splendid Sampler book (shown above) and get started with the first of 20 blocks that will be published before the book release.
See our class list for more meeting details.
Construction updates! The left side of 3rd is open but the right lane is now closed. We hope these new alternate directions will help you arrive easily.
If you are coming from Caldwell (West), you will need to detour and turn right from 3rd onto 12th street. Turn left on 4th just past Key Bank. Go two blocks and turn left on 14th.
If you are coming from Boise (East), please be aware that Garrity and 11th are also being torn up to be repaved. There are restricted lanes available but you can come up Garrity, turn left onto 16th (just under the overpass, along the edge of the park), cross over the next overpass and go to 4th. Turn right on 4th, go 2 blocks and turn right on 14th.
