May 2011 Newsletter


Here it is May already and Spring Market is this week!  It's been "pedal to the metal" and "nose to the grindstone" at my house for the past few weeks as I've worked to get ready for Market.

If you will be in Salt Lake for Market this week, you'll find me in the Superior Threads booth #509.  Please stop by to say hello and see what's new. 

In the meantime, here is a sneak peek.  Let's start with. . .



Cell Phone/Camera Case & Wallet

Good things come in small packages — and here’s a small but mighty solution to the need to carry all kinds of “stuff”.

Why carry a bulky purse when everything you need will fit into this compact little case?

This fashionable Cell Phone/ Camera Case & Wallet will instantly organize all your basic personal needs. Carry your cell phone, credit cards, cash, ID, business cards, keys, lipstick — and more!

Short and long detachable straps allow you to carry the case several ways: over the shoulder, across the body, around the waist, slipped over the wrist, on a belt, or looped to a purse handle.

No more rummaging around in your bag looking for your phone — it’s always in reach.

Finishing kits with hardware in black, nickel, or antique gold will be coming soon!



Quick and easy patterns for a mini bag, a double eyeglass/cell phone case, and a pocket wallet.

Pretty and practical, these accessories are quick and easy to make using your favorite fabrics.

Make them to match your purse or your mood -- and make a few for friends, too. They're great for gifts!

I prefer to use ByAnnie's Soft and Stable in these projects to give them a professional finish and good body and stability.

International Quilt Market/Spring - Salt Lake City, Utah

Thursday through Sunday, May 12 to 15

This trade show for the quilting industry is for shop owners and is not open to the general public. If you have a quilt shop or online store and are looking for unique patterns that are different from what everyone else is carrying, be sure to stop by the Superior Threads booth (#509) to see what's new.

On Thursday, at 10:55 a.m., I will be presented a School House presentation for Checker Distributors with the theme "Where Did You BUY That Gorgeous Purse." And on Friday, from 12 to 12:55 p.m., I will be demonstrating Soft and Stable in the Brewer booth. Please stop by to say hello and see what's new.

I'd love to see what you've been doing with ByAnnie's Soft and Stable, Texture Magic, or any of my patterns.  Please email me at 


Until next time, happy stitching!
