It's once again that time of year. What time is that? It's time to offer our Brown Bag Mysteries. If you haven't joined us in the past for the yearly Mystery Quilt, here's how it works. You purchase a brown paper bag which has five fabrics and the cutting instructions to make a quilt top. Border, binding and backing are sold separately. This year's quilt will finish to be 54" x 70". If you would like a larger quilt, purchase 2-1/4 yards and add the optional 10" border. There will be a bow tied to each bag that shows you one of the fabrics used to make a quilt with these fabrics. If you like that fabric, you should like what's in the bag. You do not get to see the rest of the fabrics until you purchase and open your bag! That's the first part of the mystery. Karen Montgomery has again written this pattern and made it available to ONLY the shops that attend the annual Sewposium seminar. Each bag is a one of a kind combination. There may be more than one bag with the same fabric used for the bow, but at least one fabric, if not more are will be different. If you see one you like, Keep that in mind. We will be adding more Brown Bags as need, so be sure to check back.

The first clue will be mailed on March 19th or can be picked up at the store on March 20th. Clues will be available every 2 weeks through May 28th. Karen will be posting a video for each clue to a private Facebook page for the group. In these videos, she will go through in detail how to do each step for that particular clue. This group is only for those who have purchased one or more Brown Bags. This group is for participants to share their progress, ask questions, give support to each other and just have fun. The group will open on February 1st.
