stitch[2]Good afternoon!! What a beautiful day it is. It’s amazing how fast everything has bloomed and how thick the lawn is. I am so excited to announce that I now have a new website and you can actually find me on Google maps….seriously do not ever let Yellow Book (HIBU) do any advertisement for you. Total waste of money. I do want to tell you that my friend Tammy Jones from Badger did an awesome job on my new website!!!If you are like me and fall short in the computer savvy side please give Tammy a call. She really does a great job and is very efficient. When you do check out my new website at, you can even click on over to my Etsy shop at and my new Twitter page at This is all new to me and I am hoping to get more involved with selling on the web so please check out our new web presence!

book1[2]Some more exciting news is that I am participating in the Row by Row Experience that starts June 21st. I finally finished my row and I think you will like it. It is super cute and happy. Please check out the pattern on June 1st on the Row by Row Experience facebook page. The theme this year is Home Sweet Home. If you have never done this before, it is pretty fun and easy. It is like a huge Shop Hop that is nationwide. You stop into participating shops and get a free pattern or purchase one of their kits for the row. You then can sew them together for a quilt and even win prizes. Please see their website for more info.

precuts1I have been busy putting together new fabric bundles and putting out new fabrics thru out the past weeks. I know many of you are busy with Graduations, gardening, and spring projects underway. If you are looking for a little relaxation and something new to try I have received many new patterns to try. Lots of new simple table toppers, wall hangings, bags and small projects. Camping , bicycling, elephants, owls and vintage are some hot themes this year. There are lots of new super cute fabrics and patterns with these themes. I also just got in Lori Holts Christmas charms and mini bundles. I’m not a big holiday fabric gal but seriously, it’s Lori Holts. lol.

snap[2]I have not posted classes due to graduations, and Memorial weekend coming right up, but please do not hesitate to call me with a private quilt class. I will be hosting some open sewing days and some fun classes this summer. Next charm swap is June 2nd. You will need to drop off or bring in 21 2 1/2” strips of a bright fabric. May be solid, print, blender but must be bright colored.

Next week, Mrs T’s will be closed for the Memorial holiday. Closed May 26th thru May 30th. Will be open back on May 31st 10am.

Thank you and have a super day!! Tanya Harrison
