A New Season

For everything there is a season, and a time
for every purpose under heaven. Ecc 3:1

This Schoolhouse Pillow has been on display in the shop
for almost 15 years, since day one. It is time for it to come 
home along with Temecula Quilt Co. I have made the 
decision to close the brick and mortar side of the shop. 

I will be open until November 20, 2021
Monday, Wednesday and Friday 10:00 - 4:00
Saturday 10:00 - 2:00

I will continue to design fabric for Marcus Fabrics and
and will be keeping my online shop open for business. I
will also continue to write TQC Journal posts and hopefully
keep you inspired with new projects and fun sew alongs
both here, on Instagram and Facebook.
