Thursday’s Happy Hour at Homespun Hearth!

Happy at Homespun HearthWelcome to our new Happy Hour at Homespun Hearth … from 12:00 – 8:00pm EST every Thursday!  Be sure to mark your calendars, because this Happy Hour is for serious Fabricholics only!   With deep discounts on special fabrics, you are not going to want to miss this weekly deal.

Today’s Happy Hour Special is going to have you flittering around, especially if you are like me — I LOVE pretty flying creatures, like birds, butterflies, and dragonflies.  So, to know that this panel is only $1.75  … well, that’s something I’ll toast to!  There’s a total of 30 squares in each panel.  I’m thinking I might make some Mug Mats!

Laurel Burch Flying Colors II 12″ Panel

So, here’s the fine print.  We must limit these to 1 per person … we just can’t take the responsibility of too much of a good thing!  Also, when you put this into your cart, you will automatically see the discount applied on your checkout  page.   If you must have more than one, then the regular price will apply to all additional panels.   Remember, this ends at 8:00pm tonight, so be sure to complete your order before last call!

It’s Time To Vote – Week 3 Block of the Month Challenge!

Blue or Red?
Let’s cool things down some.   The last quilt, Hot Flashes, had a clear winner with the Black winning 80% to 20% of the votes!  I don’t suppose I’m that surprised since that black really sets off those colors.  Once again, thank you for voting.    Also, be sure to follow our blog (to the right) so you Don’t Miss a Thing!

Tours-des-Jardin

You Choose!

Blue or Red.  This is a difficult choice when you compare both of these beautiful quilts!  I’m not sure which is my favorite, but I think for my guestroom, I would go with the Blue.  What about you?  This quilt, called Tour des Jardin, translated to Round of Garden,  is a blend of the romantic Tour des Fleurs fabrics and a whimsical design by Holly Hill Quilts.  Luckily for all of you, we are offering both colors as a BOM.

Reminder:  So, along with the Poll, please let us know “I Voted” in the Comments Section so we can have a special give away at the end of the BOM Challenge!


First vote Red or Blue in the Poll and then leave a Comment – I voted !

New! Tuesday’s Talkabout! Blogs, Creations, Instant Cash and More!

Tuesday's Talkabout - where we show what were all dabbling, babbling and gabbying in! Hello and Happy Tuesday!  Today we start our new Tuesday’s Talkabout, where every week we’ll feature how we and you, our remarkable customers, are keeping busy.   For the past few weeks we have been gathering information that you have sent us …  your blogs, your creations, and your favorite Homespun Hearth products.   So, grab a cuppa (my favorite is a non-fat vanilla latte … what’s yours?), get comfy, and let’s just enjoy some time together!

Robbie S - Colorado

Beautiful Purse from Robbie

Customer Creations:  To start, we want to show you a picture of a beautiful purse that one of our retreat customers made.  She recently purchased some of the Colors of the Wind fabric from Homespun Hearth, and what a gorgeous purse she made!  The design is from a Butterick pattern (wish we could take credit!)  – we love the whimsical nature of the purse that was such a great fit for this fabric – thank you Robbie S from our home state of Colorado!

Customer Blogs:   What a great response we had when we asked our customers to send us their blog links – and they keep rolling in!  It’s pretty impressive to know that we have so many industrious customers out there.    For this inaugural talkabout, we are excited to reveal the first blogger, Martha.  Living in Baxter MN, Martha is a mother of two and grandmother of three.  She enjoys quilting, sewing, and card-making.  Her blog shows that she’s pretty darn busy sewing .. and like us, trying to keep those fingers moving on these cold days.  Why don’t you pop in on her and let her know that Homespun Hearth sent you – I’m sure she’ll appreciate the visit!  You can view Martha’s “Sew What’s New” blog here Thank you for sharing, Martha!

Holly’s Creation

Our Team Creations:  We also want to highlight some of the creations that folks on our team have been making.  I asked them to take pictures of all of the things they’ve made that they have in their homes.  Oh My –they’ve been busy, too (and I can’t imagine where they find the time …)!  The first creation I’m going to showcase is a quilt that Holly made.  Holly is the newest addition to the HSH team, and while she wears many hats, she is being groomed to be our Marketing Director.  We’ve learned that Holly is drawn to bright colors, and that she loves stripes and polka dots – I think this quilt really represents Holly in that it is fun and cheerful!

It’s Time to Vote- Challenge #2!

Which One is the "Hottest" one for you?

VOTE – Which one is the “Hottest” for You? Black or White?

Black or White?
The competition is starting to Heat Up (no pun intended!), with the Dueling of the Hot Flashes Quilt Kits!  Featuring Clothwork’s Shades Fabrics with a backdrop of a colorful confetti on the black and white to give this quilt even more dimension, this is the perfect quilt to brighten up even the moodiest days.  These quilts each measure 69″ x 87″ – the perfect Twin, and it is a great Sampler quilt for the Intermediate quilts.

We did learn something, though, on our first Vote between the A to E and Bertie quilts … while the Poll was great (and easy!) to tally up the votes, we weren’t able to keep track of who voted… and that makes prize giving a little bit difficult!

NOTE:  So, along with the Poll, please let us know “I Voted” in the Comments Section so we can have a special give away at the end of the Challenge!

First vote Black or White in the Poll and then leave a Comment – I voted !

Love Birds

Love is in the air around Homespun Hearth. While all you quilters are busy finishing Halloween goodie bags, Thanksgiving runners and Christmas quilts, we are starting think about what is right around the corner-Valentine’s Day. Really you say? Yup. If we don’t get things ready, then you will have no time to order and make your projects.

Let’s start off with a whimsical and fun quilt kit in brights called aptly, “Love Birds“. This pattern by “Don’t Look Now” is modern applique at it’s best and most exciting. This pattern uses machine blanket stitch, turned edge, free motion machine stitching and trapunto methods of sewing. But it will allow you to work with the skills set you are most comfortable with also. The sky is the limit with these designs as you use them for applique over and over on wall hangings, pillows and blocks. Why not use them to create your own quilt top! It offers you a “garden” of creative inspiration.

vdayWe are also looking at potential patterns for kits and thinking about love. Well, it seems like it’s far off for you, but for us it’s right around the corner. We are selecting just the right fabrics to kit with the best patterns for the perfect Valentine look. So, keep you eyes out and pick up your favorite kit today.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

scissors

October is National breast Cancer Awareness Month. Here at Homespun Hearth, we are eager and willing to spread the word, reach out to our customers and blog readers to get them to take the step of having a preventative mammogram.

“The National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) mission is to save the lives by increasing awareness of breast cancer through education and by providing mammograms for those in need.”

All of us have been touched by this disease. My own mother-in-law succumbed to the disease in 2002 A day doesn’t pass when I don’t think of her and miss her in my life. She was a sewer, nanny, friend, gardener and perfectionist. I remember when she sewed our flower girl dress for my niece and the way she worked to make it “perfect”.

I think she would be very happy that I get to work in the sewing field with Teresa and Julie at Homespun Hearth. Here we are surrounded with women who love and foster creativity. What more could you ask for?

Braest Cancer awareness

So, take a minute and maybe create a throw, quilt or tote for someone you love who is fighting this disease. Many companies have generously donated funds from product sales to help with the cause.

We, at Homespun Hearth, carry some fabrics an tools that support awareness. We also have just the right pink fabrics to create the perfect gift to brighten a cancer patient’s life. If you don’t personally know someone dealing with this disease consider yourself blessed. But also consider making a donation to your local cancer center to show your love and support.
