Auntie Ju's has had some downtime to regroup before the 2014 Show Season begins in January.  And what a great place to start - West Palm Beach.  Well, somebody has to do it!  We'll be at the Palm Beach Convention Center from January 9 - 11 for the World Quilt Show - Florida V. The show will be open daily from 10am to 6pm.  Later in the month we'll be in full swing in Myrtle Beach SC for the Myrtle Beach Quilt Party and then on to Statesville NC for the The Quilting and Needle Art Extravaganza.  We hope you'll be able to stop by one of these shows and say 'hey'!  We'll have some new products for you to check out.

I'm working on a new Block of the Month called, 'Mastering Miniatures', using 28 richly colored fabrics from JUDIE'S AUTHENTIC MINIATURES by Judie Rothermel for Marcus Fabrics.  You'll transform easy-to-sew 6" blocks into a quilt (approx. 70" x 70" incl. borders) and at the end you'll not only have a beautiful quilt, you'll have a 50-block pattern book!

The instructions are clear, accurate and easy to follow.....geared for an average beginner.  The 6" blocks are all rotary cut with easy assembly, no tiny pieces and no paper piecing.  Full-color patterns with each block featured on one page. Pattern includes a thumbnail of each of the fabrics for easy identification, plus tips and easy to read complete instructions. 

You'll be working with these fabrics to make the center of the quilt.

Here are some of the 6" blocks I have finished.  So far,
the black and red block and the bear claw block
 are my favorites!

So warm up your rotary cutter, stock up on chocolate and prepare to enjoy yourself as you make this wonderful family heirloom!  We'll start shipping in January, so get yourself signed up now! 

Auntie Ju's has a new look!  The main page of our website has very subtle changes but you will see a nice change in the Products display and in the 'Shopping Cart' and 'check out procedure'.

Here are some of the new features:
  • Hovering over the picture of the product with your mouse enlarges it - in some cases you will be able to zoom in and see the details.
  • You can create a 'wish list'.
  • You can purchase 'gift certificates' in any denomination.
  • You can shop by price.
  • You can write a review of the product.
  • Pictures of the products can be e-mailed, printed, sent to Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook so you can share with your friends.
  • If you start an order and get interrupted, are undecided or are not quite ready to submit the order, it will stay in the system for a day or so you can do more shopping and come back to finalize the order later.
We're excited about the changes and hope you will find the whole shopping and ordering experience much more enjoyable.  Click here, take a look and let us know what you think!  And while you're there be sure to sign up for our new Block of the Month.

We appreciate your support over the past 6 years and wish you and yours the happiest and safest Holiday Season!
