Correction on Spring Fling

Welcome to the Calico Cow907/

Hi everyone, it was brought to my attention this morning that I posted the wrong date for the Forget Me Knot Quilter's Guild Spring Fling. It is actually March 25th and 26th, not March 18th and 19th. Sorry about that!

February and March plus SaLeS

  • January is over - YAY!! The days are getting longer, and the weather hasn't been too bad around here, so there's hope for spring.
  • We have a lot going on in the next month or so! First off is Party with Patrick, Tues, Feb 15th 5:00 to 8:00 pm. Everyone who comes gets a free gift courtesy of the Warm Company, the batting company that makes Warm and Natural, and Insul-Bright and those wonderful products. I think it's a very awesome gift, and there's enough for 20 people !! The project is a small shamrock tablemat, perfect for March.
  • On Feb 19th, Marcia will be teaching a "magic block". There are samples and supply lists at the shop - It's a beautiful block made in a very interesting way - stop by and see the samples!
  • February 26th is a Mystery Quilt with Joyce made with strips - the precut 2 1/2" strips are a great way to go!! You won't know what you're making until you're done with the quilt - hence the "mystery". So you can't come and see the sample, but mysteries are always a lot of fun! Come and join us!
  • The Quilt Guild has a lot coming up, too! Feb 12th is Alaskana applique' with Marcia.
  • March 5th is a beginner class with Joyce (which is full, but we are taking names in case of cancellation - sign up at the store),
  • March 12th is a needle case with Christy.
  • March 18th and 19th is the Spring Fling!
Don't forget to come in and VOTE for your favorite item for the challenge quilts - only two entries, so it's just a matter of who gets the bigger prize!! Anyone who makes a $10 purchase can vote on the back of their sales slip, through National Quilting day, March 19th.

If you haven't been in to see our $7.99 fabric selection in the classroom, we're sweetening the pot! Starting on Saturday, it will be $5.99, and if you empty the bolt, it will be $4.99!!!! Help us make room for new fabric! Speaking of which, we have new wide flannel backings, some new batiks, baby flannels, a really cute doggie panel called Pound Hound, and some beautiful wildflowers from Moda! If you haven't been in for a while, there's even more!!
Handi Quilter is giving an awesome deal on their new "Sweet Sixteen" sitdown machine - On orders placed between Feb 4th and Mar 7th, you can get a "GO! Baby Fabric Cutter starter set (a $326 value) for FREE! See the attachment for a picture of this beautiful machine. This is an even more affordable and compact way to get into a machine with longarm capabilities. Come in and talk to us.
Lots of fun things to do around here these days - Come in and join us for the fun.
