{Nantucket} New Fabric

(Click on the photo to go straight to the fabric in the shoppe!)

With over 15,000 bolts of fabric how could we possibly fit more in the shoppe?!??!

Well, we can and we do! I was amazed when I went into the shoppe the other day and saw at least 4 new lines of fabric that were just brought up from the back!

{NANTUCKET} was one of them! I am loving this fabric! ;)

I am also super excited that is has an adorable pattern to go with it! And once again it is free!

There will also be a kit available in the shoppe!

Love it! I am going to have to get some of my own....just in case a project comes along and these will go perfect with it.

You can find the cute twill tape HERE

Cute little bowl they are in huh?!?!? Stay tuned because that pattern book will be featured soon....and you won't believe all the cute things found in that book! :)

{Along The Fence} New Fabric

The days that freight is pulled from the back and I am working it is always like Christmas!
The wheels in my head just start turning and I can't stop myself from coming up with ways I am going to use the beautiful fabric I am un-wrapping!

Along the Fence by Kim Diehl is in.

You can find the fabrics from this collection HERE.

There is even a free pattern available using Along The Fence HERE

The shoppe is also making kits using the pattern and the fabulous fabrics. If you are interested in purchasing a kit contact the shoppe during store hours. I will let you know when they are available online through the shoppe website.

{The Gathering Place}

The Gathering Place is located on the town square in historic Rupert, Idaho. Rupert is located by the Snake River just four miles north of I-84.

With over 10,500 square feet of fabric, books, patterns, notions and samples we are one of the largest shops in the West drawing quilters from around the world. We are family owned and operated with a dedicated, talented staff.

We have been featured in Better Homes & Garden Quilt Sampler Magazine as a top 10 shop, and are currently appearing in McCall's first publication of their America Quilts Hometown Favorites, Spring 2010.

Come see our wonderful selection of fabrics and meet our knowledgeable, friendly staff. If a visit is not in your near future, please visit our website often. We are barely getting started and will be adding product daily for quite some time.We have over 15,000 bolts of fabric, over a thousand books and patterns, and approximately 200 different, wonderful kits.
