Martingale Publishing is going out of business and yes, we have known for awhile but we were sworn to secrecy. Can you believe I kept my mouth shut? My nickname is Windy, you know!
Knowing this was going to happen we decided to concentrate on our first charm book, Country Threads Goes To Charm School, 2010, for our $5.00 Friday patterns. We have been busy remaking these old quilts in new fabric ways but not necessarily from charm packs.
Here’s the first $5.00 Friday pattern – “Say Please”.
Here’s the original quilt:
These patterns are available by mail ONLY because we are both old, we didn’t grow up with computers and we simply don’t know how to put these patterns into an online store for you to purchase and download. There is simply nothing to be done about that – we have tried several times to hire someone to help us but we have not been successful.
That being said – all pattern orders must come to:
2345 Palm Ave.
Garner, IA 50438
Cost will be $5.00 per pattern and will require a SASE which will hold two patterns. Payment can be cash or check only – no credit cards. Checks should be made out to Country Threads. Direct any questions or concerns to my email – firstname.lastname@example.org
We will make this work!
Tomorrow I’m going to take you along on a tour of Connie’s new sewing room at the lake.
Beamer’s mom and I were talking the other night about scraps and I sent her this picture –
She sent this picture back to me!
How’s that for a chuckle?
I can tell where the geese were sitting all night –
One of our furnaces quit working and today the repairman found two dead birds inside – blew out the motor!! No wonder it was so cold upstairs last night!
Three enjoying the windowsill sun.
Hazel being the pistol she is!
And that’s it from the farm today – see you back here tomorrow for Connie’s sewing room tour!
