The fabric collection is inspired by Civil War fabrics, accurately reproduced in the classic colors brick, gold, cadet blue, old green and brown. These prints will inspire you to go back in time to when things were simpler and crafting with your hands was how you created a quilt for your home.

Club is the 2nd Saturday of every month at 10 a.m. beginning January 2016.
Or, if you prefer, join us on the 2nd Monday of each month for a free day of sewing at the THREADS after the Club meeting.
