Are you feeling buggy,crazy or willowy? Kuspuks too!

Hi everyone!OK, remember, this Saturday is the Buggy Barn Crazy Day with Joyce, 10:00 am - 8:00 pm! It's not too late to sign up! Any Buggy Barn pattern you have been dying to try, or one you started and haven't finished - Joyce will be there to help you.

We have new patterns and books in the store including the Crazy Dog days and Crazy Snow Days. Also some patterns we had before but haven't had for a while. This is not a class for brand new beginners, but if you have some quilting experience, you'll have a blast. If you don't know what a Buggy Barn pattern is, stop by the shop and check them out.

We nailed Lonnie down on which weekend she'll be teaching the summer parka class - BOTH WEEKENDS! Yea! The first weekend is May 1st (Thursday) 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm and May 3rd (Saturday) 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. The second weekend is Fri nite and Saturday, the 30th and 31st of May (same hours).

Come in the shop and check out the samples she's brought in - they're beautiful! You too can make one for yourself or a gift for a good friend or family member! There are many options for hoods, pockets, and whether or not to have a ruffle at the bottom.

We have patterns in the shop now. Unfortunately we have to send you to Fairbanks for zippers and trim (we do have one roll of trim that's of killer whales) but we hope of course that you buy your fabric locally. (Remember to ask for your 15% discount for class supplies up to and the day of a class - sometimes we forget)

Also that weekend is the Willow Bend class - one piece fusible applique - on Friday nite May 2nd from 5:00 to 9:30 or 10:00. These gals (the designer, Mary Stenros and her friend) from Soldotna are coming to teach the class. The designer will sign your pattern if you like, too. We don't have a sample up yet, but they are gorgeous in batiks.

We just got in 24" wide Steam-a-Seam so you can fuse it all in one piece. Please eat ahead of time, or bring a brown bag supper. It's not every day we get a designer here from out of town to teach her own patterns!!!

The FMKQ guild has a couple of things happening in May. The regular craft day is May 10th. UFO day (unfinished objects!) Then, Carol Wight Jones is coming May 23rd and 24th to teach embellishment and 3 dimensional applique'.

We have samples, information and registration forms at the Calico Cow.I think that's it for now, happy quilting! We'll try to schedule a beginner class soon for all you beginners who are waiting for a class.
