Happy New Year!

Hi everyone!

Just a quick note to let you know about the upcoming classes.

On January 28th, Jackie is teaching Quilted Hearts, a very beautiful quilt made with half square triangles and a really neat scalloped heart border. The sample is in the shop. It would be an awesome Valentine quilt, or just to give to someone you love. This is not for brand new beginners, and will start at 8:00 in order to get as much done as possible.

But we have a beginner class the next Saturday, February 4th. "Baby Don't Fence Me In". There are two samples hanging on the wall in the shop. The class will start at 9:00 and Jackie will teach basic cutting and quilting for an hour or so, and then Maribeth is teaching the class. It's a baby quilt size so beginners can finish something quickly, but it's easy to add on to for a larger quilt.

Stop in to sign up for either, or both, and get the fabric requirement sheet. $20.00 for each class which includes the instructions.

This Saturday, January 14th is the Forget Me Knot Quilters guild's regular craft Saturday, meeting here at the shop. This month we're doing "fire quilts", the quild's community service project, to have on hand for people who's houses burn. The main project is "continuous log cabin". All guild members are encouraged to come. Anyone, including non-members, who would like to do something for the community and learn a new technique are also encouraged to come. Much of the fabric is already cut, and we can get a lot done in a short amount of time if enough people participate. Please come and join us!

Stay tuned for news of more classes! See you soon!

p.s. Inventory is done and there's always new fabric coming in. Stop in regularly to see what's new!
