Quilter's Haven has 2 new Sue Spargo books in stock as well as a delightful selection of wool.

Sue Spargo's "Urban Sacs" book features an array of tote bags embellished with wool designs (having heard Jean Graham mention several times her love for the tote bag with the wool elephant on it I have a feeling you will soon be seeing a sample of that in the shop).

The second Sue Spargo book is entitled "Magnolia" and has a wonderful assortment of wool applique for individual pieces or you can combine the designs into a beautiful wall hanging.

A few years ago, Jean taught a class based on a Sue Spargo tote/wool applique pattern -- it was the first tote bag that I had ever made (so it was Jean that made me into a tote bag monster) and the first time I had ever done wool applique. Perhaps we will again be so lucky and Jean will teach a class based on one or both of these books -- if you get a chance to learn either tote bag construction or wool applique from her -- go for it! That is the BEST advise I can give you -- anything you can learn from Jean - learn. She is truly a quilting Master.
