April 14th (this Saturday) is Morley J Moose taught by Ruby for the guild - he's so cute! He's on the blog, too, and there are more samples in other colors at the shop.
Our next class is the Kaleidoscope class with Carol McConahy on April 28th. That looks like a lot of fun, too, as there are so many possiblities! You don't want to miss this one, sign up soon! Although she recommends the Marti Michell book and ruler, you can use any kaleidoscope book and 45 degree ruler you have. She will help you learn the versatility of the kaleidoscope block, and different techniques that work for you. There are some awesome designs ranging from a simple 2 color block to a "stack n whack" style. Come in and see the samples in the classroom, and get your creative juices flowing! Sign up soon - only $15 for the class, 10.00 to 4:00. Check out the blog for pictures!
On May 5th, Joyce Bendell will be teaching us a mystery quilt called :"Mystery at the Ranch" The cost is only $16.50 and includes the pattern! Some people ask what it is, and we have to say "I don't know, it's a mystery!" Joyce will give you one step at a time, so you don't know what it looks like until you're done. It's so much fun. When you sign up and pay, you will get your fabric requirements (the key to choosing fabrics is CONTRAST) and the first step. Yes, that means there's homework before class, but you'll get that much more done in class!
And - big news!!!! A Memorial Day Weekend Sale!!! Thursday May 24th through Monday May 28th we'll have 25% storewide!
(the usual exceptions apply- consignments, fabric already on sale, etc.)
Thursday through Monday should give everyone time to get in and shop, even if you have weekend plans.
