November 12th update

Hi, just thought I'd send you a little reminder of what's going on here at the Calico Cow. Nov 15th (this weekend) is our pillows and wallhanging class with Marcia. She has great ideas and techniques for pillows and is always creative with wallhangings, too. It's not too late to sign up, but do it soon! Nov 22nd - Fractures! Those cool looking wallhangings you've seen in the classroom, taught by Carol McConahy from Fairbanks. It looks like such a fun technique, I hope no-one has to miss it! I've got my main fabric chosen already! Dec 6th - beginner class - the disappearing ninepatch. This is a great class for beginners to get the basics of quilting, and make a nice small lap quilt. It's also a fun new, fast technique for more advanced quilters as well. I'm encouraging brand new beginner quilters to come the night before at no extra cost to get the basics of cutting down. Then we will have a break until after Christmas on the classes, since everyone is so busy with Christmas events, etc.

Be on the lookout for a BEAUTIFUL block of the month coming in January.. Robert Kaufman fabric's Chelsea Garden. You may have seen it advertised.

As always, we have new fabric, books and notions in:
Laurel Burch Christmas fabric
new Buggy Barn and Art to Heart books
Triangulation CDRoms - print any size half square or quarter square triangle on paper to sew them on - any size, as many or few as you need, from your own computer - cool, huh?
Restocks of things we were out of like Decorbond, Applique pressing sheets, quilting gloves, etc, etc, and new PINK travel cases.
Come and browse if you haven't been in for a while, or even if you have! Remember we're open Friday nights until 9:00! And every other day except Sunday, 10-5.
Happy November from the Calico Cow crew!
