Jack and the Beanstalk by Eleanor Burns

Eleanor and her crew previewed quilts and quilt designs from her new design book "The Magic Vine Quilt." Later Eleanor and her gang presented an amusing parody of the "Jack and the Beanstalk" fable cleverly weaving designs from her book into the production.

Eleanor Burns Fabric Store

The Tent Store's walls were lined with thousands of fabrics at bargain prices. Each day a given predominant fabric color earned an additional discount. At these prices and selection, it was "Shop til you Drop!"
