Safe journey to those of you who are traveling to Houston this week. We can't wait to show you our latest collections.
In our last post Jacquelynne Steves talked about her upcoming free block of the month, "Sew Sweet Simplicity." Make sure that you sign up to join in on the fun. As we said on Friday, Jacquelynne made a tutorial about making Flying Geese blocks because the blocks in the BOM feature flying geese units and some "bonus" half-square triangle unit. Check out the tutorial. What will you make with the flying geese units and "bonus" HSTs? Jacquelynne designed this lovely Christmas quilt. You can download the free pattern for this fun quilt here.
Speaking of holidays, we are continuing with our "Countdown To The Holidays" event. Last week's winner of our giveaway is John Hutchens. Congratulations! Please contact us to claim your prize.
We will be giving away a bundle of Kim Diehl's "Butter Churn Basics" to this week's winner. This is a versatile basics line that features the pretty prints that Kim is known for designing.
In addition, Jacquelynne has added some more goodies to the giveaway prize for this week. The winner this week will win the bundle of fabric plus a fabulous PDF pattern prize bundle. Good luck!

On October 24, 2014 the HG designers will be hosting their own Schoolhouse Presentations to present you with their new product information. Also, all attending designers will be present at the Martingale Schoolhouse for the launch of the book. Please join the Henry Glass designers for these exciting events.
There will be exciting demos by the Henry Glass designers at Booth #608 at 10 a.m. each morning. They will be participating in various book signings to support the launch of "A Flair For Fabric." Drop by Booth #608, take a look at the new collections and pick up your free tote bag. There will be prize drawings for fabulous bundles of Henry Glass fabric. Just attend any demo to receive an entry ticket for the drawing. Tote bags available while supplies last and only one entry per person, per demo.

Henry Glass designer Jacquelynne Steves is hosting a fabulous FREE block of the month giveaway.
The first block for the FREE Sew Sweet Simplicity BOM will be released on October 27. There will be giveaways, blog hops, and lots of fun! The BOM will feature lots of different options- make a 4 block or 6 block quilt, use applique, embroidery, or just piecing to make your quilt- the choice is yours! Readers can go here for more information.
The blocks in the bom feature flying geese units, so I've done a tutorial here on her blog for making flying geese units and making some "bonus" half-square triangle units too. Tutorial can be found here.
Readers can then use their flying geese units and "bonus" HSTs to make a Christmas quilt. The free pattern for this gorgeous holiday quilt can be downloaded here.
Make sure that you come back on Monday. Jacquelynne will show off the BOM and she will have a sweet giveaway to be included in the "Countdown To The Holidays" event that we are running. Have you been entering the giveaways? Check out the latest post on this weekly event.
