Totally Rearranged

Dave Becker-Jackie's husband and he also works on Thursdays at the shop!

Hey, everybody!

Check out our new arrangement! We totally rearranged everything today! Thanks to Dave and a couple of wonderful, strong, and helpful young men, we unloaded all the shelves, moved ALMOST everything, and reloaded the shelves. Some things are still needing a little help finding homes, but those who have seen it think it looks great. Ya gotta come and see!

The Forget-Me-Knot Quilters' Spring Fling is coming up soon - March 14-15. Lisa Moore of Sitka will be our Saturday teacher, and she'll be teaching any of four of her newest patterns. They will be in our shop soon, so you can buy your pattern and choose fabrics. We have color copies of 3 of the 4 patterns now. We'll be having a sale to celebrate Sping Fling sometime that week.

We would also like to announce a sale for Leap Day (February 29th). Seems like a reason to celebrate, don't you think? And a good way to explore the new lay-out of the shop! I guess that's still a couple of weeks away, but it will go fast! Can you believe this weather?! It feels like spring, and the daylight is wonderful!

Marcia's class didn't go as planned last weekend, since she was sick, so I'm hoping she'll do it again. I heard something about this Saturday the 23rd, so if you're still interested, call & ask. The Jelly Bargelly class will be March 29th, which will give you time to recuperate from the Fling! Feb 22 is Brown bag night, March 7 is Pizza night. I think! I'm pretty tired from the rearranging today, and I feel I am beginning to ramble!

Thanks everyone, hope to see you soon!
Maribeth, Jackie,

2008 Spring Fling

Christmas Party with the FMKQ Guild Members 2007
Dear Fellow Quilters

It’s Feb. 5th and a crisp - minus 50 here on Sawmill Creek. Mark your calendar on March 7th & 8th for the Forget-Me-Knot-Quilters annual “Spring Fling”.

The perfect solution to chase the winter “blahs” and get together with friends for a weekend of quilting, food, surprises, and fun.

Our guest instructor is Lisa Moore of Sitka. Lisa is a very creative quilt designer and will be teaching us a brand new quilt design. She assures me that beginners need not be afraid and experienced quilters will enjoy the challenge of her latest design.

Send in your registration and fee today as space is limited. As soon as we receive your registration and attendance fee we will send you more information, event calendar, etc. Your fee includes food and lots of surprises. ?????
