February Cotton Club Issue
The February, 2012 Cotton Club mailing went out to our members the middle of January. It does that 10 times a year. It includes a 4 page newlsetters along with 8 - 4" useable squares. We have been sending this mailing to our members, since 1986. In February, we featured the Smitten Fabric Collection by Barb Tourtillotte for Clothworks. We thought this line was more about love than Valentine's Day and that the free pattern they designed was a really fun one and would be fast to make.
We do have all 11 fabrics in the quilt so a kit is available. To see the issue and the kit, Click here.
Then, a new Quiltmaker Magazine arrived in the mail and with it, another quilt made from the line. This time it was Hearts Afloat on the front cover. We are able to kit it too, but you will need the magazine for the pattern. A neat thing about the magazine is that it does not matter where you are, you can download the magazine right to your computer for the same price you could buy it on a magazine stand. That is what we did to get our pattern so we would know the amount of fabric required for the kit.
Though it is rare for us to feature one fabric line in The Cotton Club, once in a while we are motivated to do so.
In the newsletter, we also introduce new books, patterns, tools and supplies. In the February Issue, with Valentines still about a month away we featured the EcoluxLighting after market sewing machine light. We have been raving about it for nearly a year now and not a day goes by without us hearing from soneone who made the purchase and loved it. So, if someone loves you or if you love you, it is the ideal gift! We saywe are lighting up the sewing world one light at a time and it is the truth.
We also featured 4 Sewing Card patterns. They are only $3.00 each, fun and fast to make and would perfect gifts for your favorite Valentine. There a funl Little Wallet, Placemats & Napkins, Journal Covers and Pillow Cases. To see the whole issue just, Click here.
