What a good feeling to hear that most of the quilts have already made it to Afghanistan!
We were wondering how long it might take them to get there. They were not only surprised that they were actual sizeable quilts, but that we had personalized each one with a name tag, thanking them for their service. We have been assured that pictures will soon be coming and we hope to share them with you soon.
Speaking of good feelings, I don’t know about you, but I like to keep a list of good ideas for gifts and stocking stuffers.
One of our favorite new products here, is the Mariner’s Star Pincushion. It’s a lovely heirloom quality box with a Mariners Star pincushion top. The round box provides plenty of space for storing pins or other tools or trinkets. It makes a great gift for any sewing or quilting enthusiast. I like mine for thread, needles and thimbles for handwork.
You can find it at our Shop Fons and Porter, as well as many other fun quilter’s gifts!
