Holiday Greetings!
To celebrate the twelve days of Christmas, we're offering our first annual "Stuff my Stocking" promotion. Here's how it works:

Each morning, starting with December 3rd, you'll receive an email announcing that day's promotion. We've picked out twelve of our best selling products small enough to stuff in a stocking. If you want to take advantage of the discount, all you have to do is reply to our e-mail or call and say "Stuff My Stocking," and we'll put that item in your stocking bag. (To particpate, you'll need to go to and sign up for our mailing list by clicking on the tab in the upper right hand corner of my home page.)

At the end of the 12 days, we'll ship your stocking at a flat shipping rate of $7.50. We do require a credit card number on file so that you can be charged appropriately at the end of the promotion. Please do not send your credit card information by email. Call us with your information: 518-297-2699. Quantities are limited to our stock on hand; the first emails received will get their stocking stuffed. You will receive email confirmation if we put any items in your stocking.

Feel free to take advantage of one, two, three or all twelve specials - it's up to you! Each promotion is good for that day only, so your "Stuff my Stocking" e-mail must be received before midnight. This is a great way to reward yourself this holiday season, a great idea for holiday gifts, or maybe a great way to have someone else (spouse, child) stuff your stocking; you know you'll appreciate the gift and it will still be a surprise on Christmas morning! Gift wrapping is available upon request. The first day of Christmas will start on Monday, December 3rd so be sure to check your inbox that morning and every morning for the next twelve days!

All the best to you and your family,

Pam Damour

One Day Sampler Quilt Class in Cincinnatti Area

Just a reminder, I'll be teaching my one day "Sampler Quilt" class in two weeks (Nov. 29)  in Fairfield OH. This is such a fun class, and teaches such great techniques. The kits are out of fun and funky Christmas patterns, so you can make this as a wall hanging or big pillow. You'll learn to make single welting, micro welting, double welting, faux piping, pleated trims, machine applique, mitered banding and more! Call 513-860-1373 for more info, or go to

In addition I'll be offering a Lecture/Demo Trunk show on the 28th, to inspire you for the holidays, and the whole year long. See what's new in techniques, accessories and projects. There's always something fun in store with The Decorating Diva! See you there!

Hi All!
I've just returned from the International Quilt Festival in Houston, and I have two more teaching trips planned before the end of the year. I was in Houston with my dear friend, Beckah Krahula, for the launch of her new book, One Zentangle a Day! (Already on the best seller list!)

This week I fly to Greensboro NC to teach at Sewingly Yours, in Lewisville.  I'm offering a half-day Roman Shade workshop, and my 2-1/2 day Window Treatment workshop, where everyone will make four custom window treatments. I'm very excited about returning to see my friends at Sewingly Yours. The Roman Shade class is sold out, but there's still a spot left in the Window Treatment workshop, for anyone interested. 

The week after Thanksgiving, I'll be in Fairfield OH, teaching at Seams Sew Easy! I'll be offering a trunk show, showing many of my new techniques, and a one day workshop featuring this project, which can be made into a wall hanging, table topper or pillow.  

I want to thank everyone for reading my newsletters and blog. and remember my zipper special for November! Buy any two zippers, and get one free! Call or email for details! 
Happy Thanksgiving!
