Shops that are stocking First Frost

Posted on 2 Comments

Hi there!

I’ve had a lot of emails about where people can locate my new line, First Frost, in this chaotic world.  While I do have a limited supply kits for both the light and dark versions of Woodland Sampler, I don’t have yardage and leave that to the shops.  I asked Benartex to send me a list of shops that ordered First Frost directly this month.  Keep in mind it isn’t a complete list as I do not have access to distributor information which means that I don’t have access to the names of shops who might have ordered the collection from U.S. distributors or any international orders, but at least this is a place to start:

The French Seam

The Presser Foot

Once Upon A Quilt

Peace & Applique Quilt Shop

Calico Point Goshen IN

Le’ Za Me, LLC Kenner LA

Material Girls La Plata MD

Quilting & Crafts by Mercer

Annika’s Arts Missoula MT

Prairie Pines Quilt Shop

New Mexico
Ann Silva’s Bernina Sewing Ctr Albuquerque NM

North Carolina
Sew Much Fun!, Lowell

South Carolina
Accent Sewing, Inc. Murrells Inlet SC

All Around the Block Quilt Shop

Nuttall’s (Murray location)

Blue Line Quilts

If you are a shop, or you know of a shop, that is stocking this line, please let me know so I can add that information. 

The new patterns that were designed for First Frost are:

Pictured above: Woodland Sampler (dark version)

Pictured above: Skyscraper (medium grey background)


Pictured above: Winter Blooms (with SVG files)

I also reworked my Hometown quilt in First Frost.

You can access the SKU information for this quilt here and the pattern can be purchased here.

I hope you love the projects.

Stay safe and happy quilting!

Shops who ordered Nightingale and a Sample Sale of Quilts and Small Projects

Posted on 2 Comments

Hi everyone,

I hope you and your families are having a happy holiday season!  Like everyone else we are very busy over here – I haven’t even started decorating and getting ready for Christmas but at least I’m finally home after weeks on the road!  (Which is good also because I have fabric lines to draw too and that is impossible to do in a hotel room!)  My studio is overflowing with projects and I’ve put some in my online store – as hard as they are to part with I’m hoping they can make other people’s homes a little brighter this holiday season!  Many are magazine projects that I made but don’t remember the specifics of – it all sort of runs together, you know? So if you are interested please take a look here.

Secondly, I wanted to drop in with a report Benartex sent me of shops who ordered Nightingale.  As a reminder, there are three patterns designed specifically for this line: Night Garden, Salt Water Taffy, and Sunrise.

This is not a complete list because if they were sold through a distributor (like all international orders and many domestic are) I don’t have access to those records, but this should help those in the US looking for this fabric.  (As usual, if you are a shop not listed here or you are listed but under something other than your store name, please contact me and I’ll add you to the list.)

Shops stocking Celestial Lights Fabric

Posted on 3 Comments

Hi everyone!

Lots of you have asked me where you can find my Celestial Lights line for Contempo of Benartex.  It debuted at BERNINA University has just started shipping to shops that ordered it there and that is the information I have at the moment. It will be shipping more widely this fall.

Some of the patterns for Celestial Lights… Clockwise from the top left: Hometown, Constellations, the quilt from the Embroidery Panel Guide, the runner from from the Embroidery Panel Guide, Floret, and Stardust. (Not pictured here is the Ruler Panel Guide designed for the Brewer Every Oval Ruler Set, which just started shipping as well.)

You can order patterns through your local shop also if you are lucky enough to have one.  And if you don’t have a local shop you can find the patterns (including a pattern bundle at a discounted price) in my shop.

If you are looking for the embroidery collection, you can ask your local BERNINA dealer to order it directly through BERNINA.


Here are the shops that were the first to order the line at BERNINA University.  (Keep in mind this is not a complete list as I don’t have access to distributor information, which includes information for all non-US orders!):
