Dear quilting friends,
We hope you are enjoying our newly designed, updated website! Carol has found the team at Like Sew Websites easy to work with and greatly appreciates their understanding of what quilt shop owners need and what quilters want to see. This is still a work in progress! We are uploading new items daily and behind-the-scenes learning is ongoing. Carol plans her work day around her weekly online class as well as telephone consultations to bring you a topnotch website. Please visit often!
WE'RE IN THE NEWS
Rangeley has been named “1 of 8 Best Summer Lake Towns 2010” and Threads Galore was described as “a quilter's paradise” by Budget Travel Magazine.
WE'RE STAYING COOL
With the hottest summer on record, our shop's been delightfully comfortable with our efficient air conditioning. The Quilt Inn offers air conditioning throughout the first floor and the studio stays comfortable even with lights, sewing machines and irons going all day.
WE'RE MAKING KITS
Martha's put together three new Rangeley Star Table Runner kits in three different styles. Chocolate brown and robin's egg blue, with lime green accents, features autumn leaves. Forest green cranberry red, and black features a lovely organic large print. Navy blue and pine green, with bright gold accents, features pine cones and boughs
Our NY Quilt Inn guests and we have put together several table runners from the Holiday Flourish III fabric line. Holiday elegance in border prints of ivory, crimson, black, gold and evergreen with metallic highlights are complemented by four artistic snowflake prints plus a gorgeous large scale print. This palette will be pleasing all winter long.
FAVORITE NEW BOOK
“Nickel Quilts & Borders” by Pat Speth includes 7 new quilts in multiple sizes plus 260 borders using 5 inch squares. The worksheet for calculating inner border width allows you to fit any pieced border to your quilt top. We're inspired to pull out the scrap bins and create “leftover” borders.
NEW FABRIC ARRIVING
Summers End by Kansas Troubles Quilters celebrates this splendid time of year. Floral Mum Bouquet is the large scale print, complemented by Floral Bloom, Summers End, and Squiggles. With tones of leaf green, bluebells, golden yarrow, bark, and cockscomb red, Summer's End will inspire quilts that honor the transition of summer to autumn.

SUMMERTIME FAMILY FUN
Dan & Carol's family from Maryland are here enjoying a break from the intense heat and celebrating 5 month old Jakob's first trip to Maine. The four grandkids have endless energy! All are looking forward to the annual four generation gathering at Carol’s mother’s home on Green Pond in Oxford, Maine. Martha's extended family travels this year to Conesus Lake, NY, for their four generation gathering and will celebrate a family wedding while there. Time spent with our families bring smiles to our hearts!
We hope you've found fun ways to beat the heat this summer. We look forward to seeing you soon and as always, we love your show & tell!
Carol, Dan & Martha
