Gifts With Purchase

If you didn't get a IHAN Newsletter, you can click on the link above to see what all the buzz is about.  If you would like to begin receiving the IHAN Newsletter there is a sign up link on the right...yep...glance to the right and you'll see it :) on the side bar. 

That was my first Newsletter and I'm telling you it took me over 11 hours to get the thing right and then get it sent.  Ya know what?  There are errors...spelling and punctuation.  I felt really bad about that...until....I thought about it and decided I did a great job for a gal working alone (support from friends of course).  If you pretend you didn't see the errors....I'll return the favor :)

One of the errors I made was saying that all Non-US Shipping Addresses get a Gift with $100.00 purchase at IHAN (excludes purchases included in the Pre-Holiday Sale).  I should have said...for EVERYONE EVERYWHERE.

The free gift is a" Spirit of the Bear Snap Pack" a $15.00 Retail Value.  You get all the fabric necessary and the pattern too.
The batiks are beautiful....and so is our weather today :)

This is the Free "Teal Me Away" rolling machine tote.

Since the weather is so nice, I took the photos outside...can't believe it is November in Ohio.
The Teal Me Away Tote is an Brewer Sewing and Quilting Supplies Exclusive. As you can see, there is plenty of room for your machine plus all the supplies you need. This is the front zipper pocket and there is a place for thread, fabric, pattern and a zippered compartment for your other notions.
Inside there is another zippered pocket and the padded part that protects your machine also has a zipper and will hold a cutting mat and rulers.

 And there is even a safety belt!  Can't have your girl giggling around.

 Inside pocket
Outside front pocket.
When you take the machine out....there is yet another zippered compartment.  I'm calling this one our "Private Stash Hiding Spot."
 If you happen to be gone sewing and have spent more than a reasonable amount of money on more stash....just hide it in the compartment and say nothing.  When you wake up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom, sneak down and retrieve your secret stash and incorporate it into your fabrics and no one will be the wiser :)  Also a great place to hide extra documents when traveling. (The Teal Me Away Tote is also available for Purchase)

I hope everyone had a wonderful day yesterday.  I know I did.  There were 12 of us for dinner.  Our kitchen area is very small...and yesterday I noticed 5 adults standing in there....what in the heck...that is like packing  a phone booth...check it out:

 There is Mr. McSteamy, both my brothers, my sister and my nephew....all crammed into tiny kitchen...on Thanksgiving no less.
Only one of them was in there cooking at the time....ya gotta love it...the kitchen is the place to congregate I guess.



  1. Kelly, What a fun picture CELEBRATING the love that is cooked up in a kitchen! LOVE your love sign!!!!

  2. Loved seeing pictures of your family!

  3. Great sale, Kelly. I wish I were buying for ME today. LOL.
    Looks like you had a great thanksgiving. The kitchen IS the place to congregate.

  4. Great sale. Love that tote.

    Your kitchen just looks like such a cheerful place, I'd be happy to hang out there too!


  5. What great pictures of everyone in your kitchen. It does seem to be where people gravitate, doesn't it?? Our Thanksgiving with family was wonderful.

  6. Glad it's not just my house were everyone tries to cram into the kitchen. I have a long thin kitchen and it only take more than one to create a traffic jam! :o)

  7. Hi Kelly, It doesn't matter how big the kitchen is, that is where everyone wants to be and it will still be crowded. My parents have a large kitchen- the table seats 12, 3 people were cooking, throw in 4 or 5 just standing around, and kids and dogs wandering through at any given moment. Crazy! It is always great fun.

  8. Sounds like you had an incredible Thanksgiving with family. Looks like everyone was having a great time. These times are to be cherished.

  9. Wish you would have invited me! Well, if you would have I wouldn't have been able to you know. Said last year I would be with family, then I forgot to ask for time off. AGE is creeping up on me, one day at a time! HA HA...Auntie....miss you guys!
