Interested in 1" Hexagon Swap?

Some of you may not be aware that I hostess 1" EPP (English Paper Piecing) swaps. In fact, currently I am polling for the themes for our 10th swap!

EPP is just fun--a great project while watching TV, waiting at the doctor's office or anywhere where you have a few spare moments--they practically make themselves!

Check out the blog at
for more information. Have questions? Just drop me a email at

Hope you can join us...

New Fabric Store in Lewiston

Kelly's Fabric Connection, 808 Main St., Lewiston (on the left, just past Marden's) is officially opened.

I stopped in today to check it out and found only a few bolts of fabrics, but many flat folds, including batiks, for $3.98/yd. The bulk of the fabrics are for home decorating. It's certainly worth a stop in while in the area. An no, I didn't come home empty-handed...

Check out their website at or call them at 207-753-3054 for more information.
