#163 "Gingerbread Quilt Shop"...  
Part eight of the Gingerbread Christmas Village Series!

A delicious Gingerbread Quilt Shop is the eighth addition to Thea's Gingerbread Village. Added to the Tree Etui, the Stitching House, Church, Candy Cane Cottage, Bakery, Haunted House and Needlework Shop, this year’s Gingerbread building is densely stitched on Gingerbread colored linen and is inspired by all manner of quilting! The shop has a small entrance foyer, with the Quilt Shop name above the door, and a metal sewing machine sewn on its tiny roof. The front shows two friends quilting in the top floor window, while a little Christmas tree sparkles merrily behind them. There are few windows, but each of the walls are covered with quilts and quilt motifs. Each side is decorated completely differently from the other side. This gives an impression when assembled, of being surrounded by all different quilts! You will be stitching with yummy silk flosses, Perle Cottons, sparkling beads and delicious looking ‘candy’ buttons. This delicious and fragrant Gingerbread Quilt Shop is dripping with icing, and lots of decorative ‘candies’ to welcome the hungry visitor. This building was not lined, which makes finishing easier and faster. Excellent finishing instructions and colour photos are included at the end of this leaflet to help you assemble yours! This year, place all eight pieces on your mantle for the Holidays! Or place them on your dining room table or hall table to give you some extra Christmas cheer as you stitch your last minute ornaments. Look for more Gingerbread Village additions in future years! Sending all of you a delicious and Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from my house to yours! –Thea

(Note:  Use Gingerbread colour Cashel for both roofs as we have done, or use your imagination and choose another colour linen, as long as it's the same count. Perhaps a red or dark blue colour would look nice. Even a black linen would look smashing on this slanted roof, as well as the small roof over he vestibule. Have fun choosing!

Sorting The Threads in your Accessory Pack: Remember to sort in daylight near a window, not under artificial light indoors, as the colours change with the colour of the lightbulbs we use. Each floss has a different number of strands in each thread length. This helps you differentiate the different colours in your pack. Needlepoint Inc. silk floss has 8 strands per length The Kreinik Mori has 6 strands per length The Gloriana Overdyed Silk has 12 thin strands per length.  

 some colours have been divided into two lengths. This can happen if a colour requires partial yardage. ie. Our kitmaker might include one 1 yard length and one 0.5 yard length, so don't be surprised if one colour has more than one length of thread. We hope this extra information will help you sort your threads more easily!
