Door Banner Kit of the Month Club

We are really excited to offer this new program that comes to you from Riley Blake Designs. This is a 12-month subscription program that starts in January 2024 and continues through December 2024. Each banner has been designed by a different Riley Blake designer.

Each month you will receive a kit in a keepsake box that includes the pattern and fabric for the door banner top and binding. The cost is just $44.50 per month plus shipping, if applicable. Your subscription is an agreement to continue the program through all 12 months. We anticipate having samples of the first few months ready to view in our store in the next few weeks.

We have a very limited number of subscriptions available. Click here to pay the first month and reserve your subscription today! You will need to provide a credit card number to our store for the remaining 11 payments of $44.50 each month starting February 1, 2024.

Autumn Postcard Quilt Kit
This beautiful quilt features fabrics from Kaffe Fasset and was designed by Liza Prior Lucy. If it seems familiar it was included in Kaffe Fasset's book "Quilts by the Sea". The design is based on an antique quilt at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.



This quilt finishes at 84" square and includes over 14 yards of fabric! The kit retails for $199.00. We have a limited quantity available at a discounted price of $169.50. The kit includes all fabric needed to complete the quilt top including the binding, full size templates, a link to the digital pattern and access to online tutorial videos. 


As a bonus,if you buy the kit from us, Marilyn will be teaching the necessary techniques (with some great suggestions from her for some likely easier techniques) in a free club setting at our shop. She is labeling it… “Marilyn’s Birthday Quilt Club” because it was supposed to start in her birthday month of September (it didn't) and it is in her favorite Autumn colors that INCLUDES PURPLE, and most of all, it will just be tons of fun. The class is FREE and starts this Tuesday November 7th from 5:15-8:15 PM.  The next two classes are November 21st and December 12th.


Note that these sessions will not be available remotely. However, if you are remote, there will be other online tutorial videos available, hosted by the pattern author, Liza. 


We have a limited number of these kits available so order yours online, come by the shop, or call us at 805-371-3042.


Act quickly because at this price these won't last!
