Catching up, Gearing up!

Winter just won't quit up here in the Poconos. Last week, we had snow showers every day; today it's 55 degrees and there's a big shining yellow thing in a bright blue sky. They say it's the sun. I've been so busy in the workshop getting ready for spring quilt shows. Please come see us in Danbury, CT, at the Northern Star Quilt Guild show the first weekend in May, and at the Dulles Expo Center in Chantilly, VA, at the Quilters Unlimited NoVa show on the first weekend in June. We have two new patterns for you: our Passport Clutch and our Fast Lane Messenger-style handbag. And we'll be previewing a few new bags, including a waxed canvas full-sized messenger that's a showstopper!

The big news is that we'll be setting up shop for the first time at the Pennsylvania Quilt Extravaganza in Oaks, PA, in September! This show is one of the largest on the East Coast, and I'm already making lists to get ready. Bucklebee will be debuting new patterns and a few new notions and materials at this show, so mark your calendars! Details of all our upcoming events are available on the Events page.
