Progress #53 Majestic applique quilt kit 79x97

 

Majestic is the rare and hard to find 20th century version of the lovely palampores sent to Europe out of the Dutch East India Company base in India during the late 1600’s. Later in the 1700’s both European and North American fabric houses were printing their versions of the indiennes and those very same versions are being reprinted this summer and offered for sale – exciting news – I’m considering getting one for myself from den Haan and Waagenmaker in Holland – they are neautiful!
PRICE: Progress #1553 Majestic applique quilt kit  $395USD + $20USD shipping – SOLD
  
 
 
 
 
 

Bucilla #8791 Garden Poppies - applique quilt kit 84x100

 

It has taken over a year to get this sought after kit back in stock, but amazingly I found two at the one spot and so can offer both the red poppy colourway and also the yellow version shown in the small picture in the bottom right hand of the package.
PRICE: Bucilla #8971 Garden Poppies  $395USD + $20USD shipping

THE RED VERSION OF GARDEN POPPIES HAS SOLD!

   

THE YELLOW VERSION IS STILL AVAILABLE – and I am hoping I may get a lead on another red one soon. The postal disruption makes supply somewhat uncertain, so check back often.  
  
 
 
 
 
 

Progress #1492 Tree of Life applique quilt kit 79x97

 

Above is the very lovely vintage Progress #1492 Tree of Life applique quilt kit ,which I recently got back in stock. This kit harder and harder to find, is in 100% cotton fabrics – lovely!
PRICE: $395USD + $30USD shipping

      

     

NOTE:  In Canada, there is an ongoing interruption of Post Office services – no mail is being accepted  at the Post Offices and no mail is being delivered either. This frustating turn of events is expected to work itself out by the middle of next week.    

As my readers know, I had offered free shipping in North America and 50% off shipping to other countries. Therefore I have decided to extend this shipping offer until July 31st to enable my customers to take advantage of it.
  
SO – FREE SHIPPING IN NORTH AMERICA and 50% OFF  SHIPPING TO ALL OTHER COUNTRIES – GOOD UNTIL JULY 31, 2011!!!
  
If you wish to purchase an item, let me know right away so I can mark it as sold, and we will work out the logistics of receiving payment and getting your items shipped.
  
 
 
 
 
 

     

    

Quilt Show: Quilts at the Harbour 13

an overview of this historic church during the 2009 show

885 West Hall’s Harbour Road,United Baptist Church, location of Quilts at the Harbour 13th Annual Show and Sale

I’ve noticed people are starting to search for information on the Quilt Show and Sale held each fall in Hall’s Harbour, so decided I’d better post on it in lots of time for people to start making plans to visit that weekend and/or exhibit their quilts.

QUILTS AT THE HARBOUR 13th ANNUAL QUILT SHOW AND SALE: 

 will be held on Saturday September 24 from 10AM to 5PM and Sunday September 25 from Noon until 5PM

at: Hall’s Harbour United Baptist Church, 885 West Hall’s Harbour Road at the corner of Sullivan Road

Admission by Free Will offering and refreshments are free. There is expected to be a bakesale as well and this is always a crowd pleaser!

For quilters, we always have a “gently used” table full of books, magazines, notions and loads of patterns and fabric – always very tempting!

We welcome quilters to exhibit their items either for sale or for viewing only and we welcome exhibitors from outside our immediate area – the more the merrier!!!

We are expecting lots of quilts and this year there will be some vintage and antique ones for sale as well some vintage embellished bedlinens, both North American and imported from France.

Quilters are already planning and working on quilts that will be on show, so it is expected to be an interesting weekend.

There is ample parking, bus tours are welcome, and the building is wheelchair accessible.

All donations at the door, and a 20% commision on all sales is given to the church and we are usually able to raise between $600 and $700 which helps to support and sustain this lovely small and historic church built in the 1840’s and actively serving the community to this day.

For more information on how to enter your quilts for the show, check my blog: http://www.quiltingwithjanet.blogspot.com

Hoping to see you in September at Quilts at the Harbour 13!!
