|Isn't this cute? Lonnie just made this basket of poinsettias. It's about 15" x 18" of sweetness and available in kit!|

This annual holiday event is coming Friday, December 1.
Visit businesses for a recipe and sample.
Stop by the quilt shop for a sample of our cheese ball bites and a sip of warm apple wine.
Santa will be in town, there will be strolling musicians and the town will be lit!
Knock out a bit of your holiday shopping while in town.
For more information, visit Adel's chamber website at this link.
|Our Angel Tree is up with just two children left to sponsor. Reminder, this year, all pillow cases have been donated so all you need to do is shop a bit for gifts to tuck inside.|

We will sponsor our first Holiday Open House this weekend November 24 and 25. Stop by for a fudge sample, gift making demos, discounts on holiday fabrics and gift certificates for the quilter in your life.
Saturday is also Shop Small Business Day. In recognition, we are giving away canvas shopping bags with your purchase!
The Angel Tree is up and nearly all of the Angels have been adopted for the holiday. If you missed out and would like an Angel to sponsor, give us a call. We can always get more names.
Special this year, a very generous anonymous quilter made a stack of pillow cases for us to use for the gifts. Thank you - - - - you know who you are!

Sisters of the Cloth is this Saturday, November 18, at the Adel Library, 10 am to noon.
We will have a very entertaining presentation by quilt historian, Millie Freese, and we will learn how to make a Dresden Plate block with folded inserts, The Spike Dresden Plate.

I did not get to stay long at Open Sew this month but here are a few pics I took while there:
|Janet V shared this pretty gray and yellow quilt.|

Have any of these been tempting you? Better shop now.
|There is just one kit of this Cathedral Window Flag left. Some have asked us to substitute the gold with white and we are happy to do it.|
|There is just one panel of these adorable snowmen left. Ask us about our panel pattern or just add a border and call it done in time for the holidays.|
|And there is just one kit left for this mug mat, complete with the textured leaf applique.|

|Here is a close up of just one block pieced to look like a window frame. We can show you how.|

|This was on the counter at our local bank. It's a real pumpkin made by putting a face mold on the plant while it is growing. Isn't that clever?|

Remember the comfort blocks we collected at retreat? Some of the retreat guests put them together. By adding offset blocks and setting this quilt on point, they were able to make 3 comfort quilts.
Thank you to everyone that made a block and that helped put these together. These tops went home with three different long arm quilters who will finish them up for presentation.

With the freezing temps in the air, it's time to move back inside to our sewing rooms.
Let us help you get started on some great hand made gifts.
Come in this Saturday, November 4, to help set the mood. Have a sample of our fudge and take advantage of 20% of our wide backing fabrics.
While you are here, we'll show you how to make these cute fabric boxes and give you a free pattern from Seaside Stitches.
Also, while in Adel, visit our neighbor at Decor Adel, 710 Prairie Street. They are converting their home dec/gift shop to an online business soon so this should be a great time to shop.
|In the mood for coffee and a scone? Stop by Adel's Brick Street Bakery.|
|If lunch sounds better, you can't beat Brick Street Books and Cafe for soup and sandwich. Don't forget the pie!|
|Nearly next door to the bakery, stop in Adel Healthmart and peruse their nice gift shop boutique.|
