Newest Colors


Jade Sparkle



Light Magenta



Dark Blossom Pink


Limited Edition Color

A monthly paint is a paint that comes out one time. That makes them a limited edition. When they are all sold that is it for that paint. We don't use it in charting the transfer designs. They are paints that can add to your palette of colors and add special colors to your designs.

I have to thank Rene McDonough for pushing me to get the Oriental Quilt out. It has been one of the best sellers this year. Thank you all for ordering it and liking it enough that there are still people getting started on it. Usually this late in the year I don't sell a lot of the earlier, all the way back to the first one, blocks of the month. I know that this, also, means that all you instructors out there are doing a great job of teaching on them. Thank you to everyone!

The rest of them are going over well, also. I tried to make each of them into class pieces so you have a variety of things to teach, out-line and fill-in, simple shading, and more detailed shading.

The last two (2) quilt blocks for each of the six (6) sets will be in the November newsletter. That way you can get them finished as holiday gifts, if that was your intention.

I'm in the process of setting up next years quilt blocks. Do any of you have any preferences?

In the new "Say what?" Transfer Pak (T5069), you will notice that the last one is not painted. That is because Halleen Fisk set it up to be used for grandmother's, grandfather's, aunt's, uncle's, etc. designs. She tried to put all kinds of different names in there that designate different family and friends so you can make up shirts, etc. for different folks with all the grandkids or whatever included on the shirt. If there are a lot of them, be sure you have your transfer pen or pencil handy so you can keep tracing and ironing on the little designs that designate more and more kids. There are different kinds of butterflies and fish. You might want boys to be fish and girls to be butterflies or maybe one kind of fish to be girls and the other one to be boys. You could use butterflies for one generation and fish for the next generation. It's for you to use in any way you want.

Here is a tip to get more sales. It works!

If you sell paints to your customers, it will pay you to make sure they get a T4673 - Dots transfer. Make sure that they only fill in the paints that they have. What happens is that they want to fill in all the 'dots', so they keep buying paints, as they can, to make sure that happens

Monthly Quilt Club

For the rest of the year – the Monthly Special will be that you can buy the Quilt Block Sets with or without the quilt blocks being included. Just add NB after the quilt set.

In November I come out with the last (2) quilt blocks for each set, so you can get them finished and quilted for gifts or the holidays. That means as of November 1st you can buy the whole year's worth of each quilt (not individual quilt blocks), with or without the blocks – only the full quilt.

These come out one quilt block per month and you can order the present month and any that were put out previously. At the end of the year you will have 12 blocks for each quilt. (January blocks will be #01.)

I will put out a painted picture of each new quilt block in the newsletter. Then, I'm going to try something new; I will put the cover page (the one that shows when the transfer is in the plastic bag) in color, also, that way you have not only the chart to know what color goes where - but, also, a colored picture to go by. This should make it easier for you to paint them whether you are in a class situation or sitting in your home by yourself doing them every month.

Class News

October Seminar

October 1 - Here at Ginger's Cameo (4879 Sylvan Rd. – Manchester, MI)

At the October Seminar on the 1st, we learned to paint with a brush – using no transfers. It was only a couple of classes, but it let the folks there stretch their abilities a little bit. I know it's scary to try something new – but they all did it – and they did a great job at it.

The first class – we used an isosceles triangle and an equilateral triangle to make a jack-o-lantern face on a black shirt. We used the first one as the eyes, by laying it out on the shirt where we wanted the eyes and traced around it with a 101, White paint. We used the second one to trace in the nose. After that we filled the triangles in with a brush with 101. (After you iron these two sections dry – you can put on a second coat – and third – and fourth, using 101, 102, 103, or 104 or any other colors that you think would show through these holes on a jack-o-lantern.) Now just take your brush, filled with 101 and make a line for the mouth. It can be a smile, frown, smirk, and way you see the mouth going and now, using that line as a guide, brush in your paint in an up-and-down motion to fill the mouth in. The mouth will be bigger that just the line and it will be jagged at the top and bottom of the mouth. There you have your jack-o-lantern on a black shirt, without using a transfer design. Easy, huh? The second class – we dry-brushed in a sun-rise at the top - then brushed in a river or ocean at the bottom. Once that was all ironed dry – we took black and put in a silhouette of hills and trees. You can see the start of the use of perspective in these two paintings. The secret to this – be sure your paint is dry in between coats.

(See our Current List of Teachers)

Any of you that hold one class or more each month should get your information to me so you can be added to our list.

I’m looking forward to seeing all of you!!!

Final Words

I’ve been trying to hold down the price on shipping – but now I’m starting to lose money on it and prices are going up at the Post Office starting May 14th. (Prices at other shipping places have already gone up.) The increases they are talking about, on top of what I was already losing, means that starting May 1st, 2007 my shipping prices are going to go up.

  • Up to $100.00 retail the price will be $7.25
  • $100.01 to $200.00 will be $9.75
  • $200.01 to $300.00 will be $11.75
  • $300.01 to $400.00 will be $13.75
  • $400.01 or more – add $3.00 for each $100.00

Remember that shipping is figured on your retail total before your discount.

If you think I should give you a lower shipping amount on your order because it is a small order, you can call and we might be able to adjust it some. No promises though. I’m not in the business of making money on shipping, but sometimes the small orders are what off-set the big orders.

Well, I guess that's all for this month. Keep that those suggestions coming. I need every one of them. See you at a meeting.
