First Wed. of each month - Willow Wood Market Quilt Club
*** Second Thursday of each month - Wild and Wooly Women of Willow Wood! It's free, and you can choose 1pm or 5:30 pm, whatever time fits your schedule. If you have ever wanted to know more about stitching or playing with wool, this is a great place to come. We have door prizes, refreshments, instruction, and a whole lot of fun! Bring your own project or purchase one from us.
** Willow Wood Market wool and patterns are in Grand Rapids, MN! ~ We now have our wool and patterns at a new gift shop located on the second floor in the Old Central School called Dustables. We have a wonderful selection of both mill dyed and hand dyed wool and many of our patterns. Stop in and check it out if you are in the area.
**Willow Wood Market wool is also now at the Red Pine Quilt Shop in Detroit Lakes,MN! I'm excited to have our wool and soon our patterns at Joy's beautiful shop!
NEW ARRIVALS and FUN STUFF !
WASHED LINEN ~ I have washed linen pieces with frayed edges that make perfect backgrounds for wall hangings and runners. We have both natural and black in stock.
VINTAGE WOOL ~ I love the feel of old wool! I have 8x8, 1/8 and 1/4 yard cuts of old blankets that I've felted up and are ready to be used for your primitive and not so primitive projects. Some even have patches to add to their charm! I have some great samples stitched up to inspire you... The colors vary from army greens and cream to softer greens, pinks and peach.
REUSE and REPURPOSE ~ I've collected old stuff for years. Some of the boxes, tins, stools, boards and such have some pretty big stains, and you should see the fun projects I've stitched up to jazz them up! And... wait until you see what I've done with old jello molds and tin ceiling squares! FUN, FUN! The ideas are endless!
We carry Valdani hand dyed variegated size 8 pearl cotton. The colors are gorgeous! We will still have all the wonderful solid colors of DMC, but I thought it might be fun to offer the Valdani as well.
** Primitive Quilts and Projects magazine! It is full of wonderful projects from quilts to rug hooking. They are $10.00 per issue. They have at least 15 projects in each magazine, and the ads feature fun places to shop and great pattern companies! You will love it!
**We have beautiful wool in a great variety of shades arriving every week. They are perfect for rug hooking and applique as well as backgrounds. All of the wool we sell is prewashed, so all you have to do is have fun stitching it! I'm having all sorts of fun trying new dye recipes! They go perfectly with the new fabrics!
** Willow Wood carries many great books on wool applique, from the very primitive by Maggie Bonanomi to traditional by Kim Diehl as well as most everything in between.
** Our beautiful wool, fabric, and samples around the shop will inspire you and I will do my best to motivate you!
