We're kicking off our celebration of summer with our June specials and half yearlysale. Our Pine Cones have teamed up to share summer fun ideas with our customers.
Don't forget our 17% off birthday celebration on June 17. See the coupon at the bottom of the email.
June is "Apron" month, with a fun, bright display of darling, jazzy, colorful, retro and memorable aprons and apron patterns, along with a "history of" aprons and more! Make a date to see us for apron inspiration and fun.
Don't miss our Summer Half Yearly Sale now under way, and our tool demonstrations for the newest helpful items to make summer sewing even more enjoyable.
We will be open July 4th with our Fabric Fireworks of hidden treasures and festive flags. Come join the fun and enter our drawing for a Sparkler Kit of fat quarters made especially for this event.
Summer shop hops and Pine Needle shop events take place all summer long, so stop in and enjoy the many events designed for your summer shopping and sewing pleasure.
Our new blog is up and running but for it to truly be a Pine Needle community resource we need your input. We would love to display images of your favorite quilts to inspire and awe others. To entice you, Geri is offering an "employee discount" for a monthly winner of the best picture. Be creative or let your beautiful quilt speak for itself.
We also would love to share your favorite quilting tips with The Pine Needle community on our blog. Send either images or tips to firstname.lastname@example.org
Looking for a little quilting fun? Check out our website Fun & Games. Geri loves games and puzzles. Each month Geri will have something new. To make it more fun, enter your correctly completed puzzle for a drawing. See our Fun & Games (listed just below our name on the website) for details.
New Tool Demonstrations June 20th - Mark Your Calendar!
You won't want to miss this:
On June 20 we will demonstrate two new tools designed for the quilter and sewer. We LOVE the new Bias Tape Maker and you will too. For the quilter the BTM also makes two sizes of binding as well as several sizes of bias tape (available in the fall). Come watch it in use and take one home for yourself! $99.99
The Gripper, another favorite new tool, comes in 3 handy sizes.
Use The Gripper to find and pick up your rulers quickly. The broad size increases the stability of the ruler giving you increased accuracy while cutting and reduces the risk of cuts to your fingers. The Grippers attach quickly to the smooth surface of most acrylic rulers. You can move The Grippers easily from ruler to ruler with a flip of the lever to release the suction cup.
The Little Gripper, the newest, is perfect for use on any 2.25" or larger acrylic templates. $6.59
The "In-between" Gripper provides a super strong 4" single suction cup with a handy Installation Indicator for use with your larger rulers and templates. $16.00
The Original Gypsy Gripper with its two suction cups allows complete control of your larger rulers. It attaches quickly at one or both ends to fit a variety of ruler sizes. $19.99
These books are filled with quick and fun projects that range from beach bags and cell phone holders. With Pretty Little Potholders the kids could create fun potholders to use when baking cookies for their backyard sleepovers.
Let us help you and the kids plan some projects for summertime fun.

Northwest Quilting Expo Fabric
We have Lynette Jensen's exclusive fabric for NW Quilting Expo in stock. You can order all three of the fabrics from our website or purchase in the store. We combined Maywood's Woolies and the Postcards print cotton for a scrunchable, huggable quilt. We've kitted it just for you. Makes a great memory quilt with pictures and names of familiar places to most Pacific Northwesterners. It makes a great gift to those away from home whether students, family or friends. Coordinated pillows available too!
Having trouble with your thread knotting or curling when you hand stitch binding or appliqué? To prevent this, thread your needle before cutting the thread from the spool. This way you are working with the direction of the thread wrap on the spool. Then run your thread through the thread conditioner, Thread Heaven. The conditioner will smooth your thread, does not leave any "globs" on the thread and will not harm your fabrics.
Did you know...that two to three times more damage occurs to thread during the process of sewing than it will encounter during the rest of its lifetime in the finished project, whether from wear, laundering, or environmental conditions. The damage occurs from the continual pulling of the thread in and out of the work.
Thread Heaven extends the lifetime of the thread and the finished product by cutting down the stress and drag on your thread while you sew, and by leaving an invisible and virtually impenetrable coating that protects against UV rays, mold and mildew.
