Our First Video tutorial & a Giveaway!

Have you been to one of our shows lately?  If so, you have been witness to Karen demonstrating our FAVORITE quilt product, Quilter's Grid.

Well, we decided to share this fun, educational experience with the entire world.  We are starting a series of video tutorials that will help in your learning and knowledge of quilting and sewing.

And we have hit 10,000!!!

This past weekend, the Home a la mode ladies were at the Dallas Quilt Celebration at Market Hall.  We had a great time and got to meet some amazing new friends, along with visiting with some old friends.
Our "Say it With Words" samples and Quilter's Grid were a big hit and we are busy getting the shipments ready to send out!

And as you may know, we were VERY close to getting our 10,000th order before arriving at the show!  Well, on Sunday afternoon, it happened!!!  And to make it more special, the woman who won is one of the amazing therapists that help with Karen's mom at the nursing home.
We look forward to the next 10,000 orders and meeting more friends along the way!

Friends Indeed

Just recently, some very dear friends of me and my family were transferred to Washington DC.  Although we know this is where they need to be, it was heart-breaking for me and especially for my youngest daughter.  My kiddos are at that stage of life where friends move away, and they don't really understand why :(
To commemorate our wonderful friendship, I wanted to send them off with something special.  What is more special than a quilt made from the heart.  So of course, I turned to our "Say it With Words" panels for inspiration.  The "Friends Indeed" panel really spoke to me - especially the one that says "True Friends are never far apart... maybe in distance, but not in heart."  I know we will see them again (we've already planned our summer vacation) and they feel in their hearts that their time in Texas hasn't ended.  We can only hope and pray that jobs and situations bring them back to us.
Just remember, the road to a friend's house is never long - or so I hope on our LONG drive this summer with 2 kiddos ;-)
