Love for the Written Word

A Word Fitly Spoken carries inspirational products with wonderful quotes we have found from literature, famous people, like movie stars, political leaders, and those to whom life has taught significant lessons, as well as the Holy Bible and other spiritual sources. These products are available as Greeting Cards, Magnets & Plaques, Talking Quilts and Pillows and Wall Hangings.
For the Do-it-Yourself-er we offer Digital Files you can purchase and download instantly for your own use, and Cotton Fabric Blocks with graphics and quotations printed on them to create your own Quilted Projects.

Some of our products are greatly reduced in cost and only one is available, since they are often created as samples of how you can use our Digital Files and Fabric Blocks in your own projects. Be sure to take advantage of these savings!

Other ready-made items offered are in keeping with our love of the turn-of-a-good-phrase and things that offer us hope and inspiration - truths, sentiments and quips that we have found inspiring, enjoyable and poignant.

Hence the name of our shop - A Word Fitly Spoken, from the Bible verse:
"A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver." Proverbs 25:11
