Her unique sense of color, design and texture were remarkable. Our quilting community was overjoyed when both Kitty and her daughter, Sylvia, moved to La Conner in 2014.</span><br /><span>&nbsp;</span><br /><span>It was always a treat to be around this diminutive lady with sparkling eyes and hear her talk about her travels, tell how she developed a certain pattern, or brag about her daughter&rsquo;s beautiful sashiko patterns.</span><br /><span>&nbsp;</span><br /><span>Kitty Pippen&rsquo;s first exhibit here,<em>&nbsp;Quilts with a Japanese Flair</em>, was curated by the Museum&rsquo;s founder, Rita Hupy, in 2002.&nbsp;&nbsp;<em>Quilting with Japanese Fabrics</em>&nbsp;was her second exhibit in 2015.&nbsp; Kitty passed away in August, 2018. This exhibit,&nbsp;<em>Remembering Kitty,</em>&nbsp;honors her legacy and irreplaceable presence in our quilt and fiber arts community.&nbsp;</span><br /><br /><span>All exhibit pieces were loaned by Sylvia Pippen.</span></p> <span></span> 2019-05-09 Flight Block of the Month http://sylvia-pippen.comhttps://sylvia-pippen.com/modules/news.htm?newsId=8711 <span>Hello Everyone!</span><br /><br /><span><strong><span>Our next drop in&nbsp;<em>Flight</em>&nbsp;class is Saturday May 11, 9-12.&nbsp;</span></strong></span><br /><br /><span>Note on the Kingfisher Block:</span><br /> <div></div> <div><span>The width and length dimensions of the block are very close. I checked the schematic in your instructions and I was not consistent how I listed the dimensions of every block.</span><br /><span>Most are obvious, but not the Kingfisher.

So trim your block to 9 3/4" wide by 9 1/4" long.&nbsp;</span></div> <div><span><strong><span><br />Don't trim until you finish the rest of the blocks; always hedge your bets to see&nbsp;<span>how it all fits!</span><br /><img class="img-responsive" src="https://media.rainpos.com/6519/king.jpg" alt="" width="256" height="171" align="" />Happy Stitching! &nbsp;<em>&nbsp;Sylvia</em></span></strong></span></div> 2019-04-01 Flight Block Two Towhees http://sylvia-pippen.comhttps://sylvia-pippen.com/modules/news.htm?newsId=8710 <strong><span>Happy Spring&nbsp;<em>Flight</em>&nbsp;Participants!</span></strong><br /><br /><img class="img-responsive" src="https://siterepository.s3.amazonaws.com/6519/262x201_74115986397133ab7ffc2eb2c9326834jpg.jpg" alt="" width="262" height="201" align="" /><br /><span>Look for me in your gardens among a tangle of thicket.........</span><br /><br /><span>Your next block is Two Towhees &amp; will be shipped out this week.<br />The next drop-in<em><strong>&nbsp;Flight</strong></em>&nbsp;class will be:<br /><strong><br />Saturday April 6th</strong><br /><strong>9-12</strong><br /><strong>Indigo Stitch &nbsp;<br /><br /></strong>Several of you came by the shop inquiring about the next&nbsp;<em><strong>Flight</strong></em>&nbsp;BOM class and I thought it was scheduled for Sunday the 7th.

If you have appliqued the branched down already and are happy with it, no need to make a correction!</span><br /><span><br />Our next&nbsp;<em><strong>Flight</strong></em>&nbsp;drop in class will be March 9th, 9-12 at Indigo Stitch.<br />Check out the new wool that just arrived from Olympic Wool Works!

It makes it easier to handle. Be sure to let them dry completely before gluing or stitching them down.&nbsp; Both products are pretty smelly until they dry and have flammable warnings. I have not tested washing the wool treated with the fray products.</span><br /><span><br />I am stocking both products in the shop and online; they should be available by next week.</span><br /><span><br />Happy Stitching!</span><br /><span>Sylvia</span><br /><img class="img-responsive" src="https://siterepository.s3.amazonaws.com/6519/265x233_img_1430jpg.jpg" alt="" width="265" height="233" align="" /><img class="img-responsive" src="https://siterepository.s3.amazonaws.com/6519/215x244_fray_blockjpg.jpg" alt="" width="215" height="244" /><img class="img-responsive" src="https://siterepository.s3.amazonaws.com/6519/138x184_fray_checkjpg.jpg" alt="" width="138" height="184" align="" /> 2018-12-29 Flight Block of the Month Drop in Class Schedule http://sylvia-pippen.comhttps://sylvia-pippen.com/modules/news.htm?newsId=8707 <span><span><strong><span><span>Hello Flight Block of the Month participants!</span><br /><br />Happy Holidays!&nbsp;<br />Here is our drop-in class schedule for the first 4 months.<br />If you live locally or visiting, come into the shop once a month for help with your block.&nbsp;<br /><span><span><strong><span><em>These are free help sessions!</em><br /><br /></span></strong></span></span>The first one will be:<br /><br />Saturday January 5th,&nbsp; 2019<br />9-12<br />At Indigo Stitch<br />128 S 1st Street<br />La Conner, WA 98257<br /><br />Then:<br /><br />February 2nd<br />March 9th<br />April 6th<br /></span></strong></span></span><hr /><span><strong><span><span><strong><span><br />Also, for those of you who did not receive the last e-mail about a correction to the Blue Jay Block, here it is again:</span></strong></span><br /><br />I forgot to put the<strong>&nbsp;M</strong>&nbsp;(Left hand Jay belly)&nbsp; template on the cutting guide.<br />Please trace it onto your freezer paper from the&nbsp;<strong>pattern,</strong>&nbsp;leaving 1/4" extra where it goes under the wing feathers.<br />It requires a very small piece of wool.

The background fabric is a mottled green&nbsp;<em>Grunge</em>&nbsp;from<em><strong>&nbsp;Moda</strong>&nbsp;</em>Fabrics.&nbsp;<br /><br />First the design is stitched with white&nbsp;<strong><em>Olympus</em></strong>&nbsp;sashiko thread, then double stitched on the inside of the design with&nbsp;<strong>light blue, red, gold, and light green<em>&nbsp;Olympus</em></strong>&nbsp;sashiko thread. Double stitching enhances the colors and adds more visual effect.&nbsp;<br /><br />Colonial knots are used for the flower stamens; they are easier to execute with heavy thread than French knots.&nbsp;<br /><br />The panels does not come with thread so you can choose your own colors.&nbsp;<br /><br />It would be a great center piece for a quilt, a wall hanging or for a pillow.<br /><br />&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<img class="img-responsive" src="https://siterepository.s3.amazonaws.com/6519/396x612_xmas_tree_cover_croppedjpg.jpg" alt="" width="396" height="612" align="" />&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;<br /><strong>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<br /><br />Wholesale: $12.00</strong><br /><strong>Packaging:&nbsp; 9"X12"</strong>&nbsp;<br />Thread not included<br /><strong>For more details:&nbsp;<a href="https://www.sylvia-pippen.com/shop/Sashiko--Applique-Store/Preprinted-Sashiko-Fabric-Panels/p/Nordic-Christmas-Tree-preprinted-Panel-x30702486.htm">click here</a></strong><br /><br /><strong>To order: call 360-466-1978&nbsp;</strong></div> <div><strong>e-mail: sylviapippendesigns@gmail.com</strong><br /><hr /></div> <div>Thanks for your patronage.<br />Wishing you a happy prosperous New Year!<br />Sylvia<br /><a href="https://www.sylvia-pippen.com/">www.sylvia-pippen.com</a></div> 2017-10-13 New!

We are opening a store in La Conner WA http://sylvia-pippen.comhttps://sylvia-pippen.com/modules/news.htm?newsId=6937 We have decided to move the business out of the house and into a lovely waterfront space in the historic Pier 7 building on the main street of La Conner Wa. We started moving just two weeks ago and now have the whole operation shuttled downtown; a huge 1/2 mile move!<br />Our online business will be based in the store as well and we will build the retail side through the winter months. <br />We hope to have a small opening in the middle of December.
