BOMs & Other Stuff!
$5 "Practically Free" Quilt Block
You asked for it and we heard you… and we're bringing this popular program back again. If you're new to the way we work, it goes like this: The first month (January) you purchase a kit for the first block of the quilt for $5. Bring it back - completed - the next month and receive the kit for the next block for free! There are a few other easy rules, but that's it in a nutshell. We've got the quilt planned, the fabric ordered, and it'll be up in the shop for you to see by the first of the year. This is always a fun program for newbie’s and experienced quilters alike, and truth be told, we missed it. So, you asked for it…you got it!

Cozy Cases and Conkerr Pillowcases
Cozy Cases is a program begun by Sew Smart Fabrics to benefit Doylestown Hospital's new pediatric unit. The Bring Chocolate Modern Sewing Group is showing their support for our local hospital by donating hand-sewn pillowcases for children admitted as patients. This will be an ongoing need and we're inviting our loyal customers to join in!
We are pleased to announce that we are now a drop off point for pillowcases made for both the Cozy Cases project at Doylestown Hospital as well as for the Conkerr Cancer Center. Both of these provide cheery pillow cases for hospitalized children that serve as a bright spot and remind them that folks care. If you would like to contribute, you can find general guidelines for making cases on the Conkerr site here, or stop in if you have any questions.
