Custom-made Ball Gowns!
We have just received 2 custom-made ball gowns on consignment. Both gowns were made by Suzi Matthews of the Kansas City area some 25 years ago -- the photos were taken at annual Civil War balls in Missouri back then. The gowns are still like new. The magenta gown includes a matching cloak, which is not really visible in photo. Click for enlargement. Price for either gown is $300 -- both can be seen in the store at 111 N. Main, downtown Liberty, MO.

Sorry, guys, the guy's uniform is not available at this time.

It's Here!
The Buckaroo Bobbins Western Heritage Shirt pattern is finally here! Back in stock and available online in our Patterns section.

Folks, we are having another fabric sale to clear out bolt ends of 1800s reproduction cottons left over from making shirts and dresses, laces used to trim underpinnings, novelty fabrics that Jean thought she'd use in quilting, a few pieces of wool, etc.  It's all first quality and priced below wholesale.  Spread the word to any quilters you might know who can use the traditional 1800s style of fabrics in their quilting - we've got a ton!!.

OK - I've been stashing fabric for over 20 years now - saving a least 1/4 yard pieces of every bolt we've ever bought, to make the 1800s clothing.   Figured I'd use it in classes, for samples, whatever.  Yeah, right!! The shelves are full to overflowing - it's time to destash!   Our "hoarding" is now your gain!

The photo shows the contents of the first box we've sorted thru.  We've got real fat quarters, regular 1/4 yard pieces, and many pieces of 1 to 5 yards.  Fat Quarters and 1/4 yard pieces are $1 each; larger pieces are $5/yard.  I have at least 5 more boxes to sort thru.

Adding lots of new pieces, now thru the end of the year. All First Quality - traditional 1800s prints, some flannels. If you are looking for traditional, 1800s period cottons for quilting, clothing, whatever, now is the time to stop in and check it out.

James Country Mercantile reproductions chosen for display

Jean Warren, proprietor of James Country Mercantile, has made several reproduction quilts, also referred to as "soldier comforts", deemed accurate enough for educational display. One quilt is on display at the Andersonville Prison Musuem. The quilt featured at left will be on display in the cabin at the James Farm Home and Museum.
