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.
