October-December Update

Hi everyone!
It's been a while since we sent anything out, so it's time! The snow is here, probably to stay, so it's time to get those quilts done before the busy Christmas preparations begin!

We have lots and lots of new fabric of all sorts! You'll just have to come and see for yourself. I can't begin to tell you all of it. I just know it's all beautiful and there's more coming in every week!

The next class is on November 5th, and it's a chenille class. I'm sure it will be lots of fun making chenille into a pillow, or whatever you want. Kit Benson is teaching it along with Shelly Ward, and they are both so creative, there will be lots of ideas flying around the classroom.

Marcia will be teaching her pillow techniques again on December 17th. This is a great class for new quilters, or seasoned quilters. Make one block or applique' something and make it into a pillow, and BAM you have a project done! Even this close to Christmas you would have time to get some gifts finished!

We may sneak in another class in November, but it is yet to be determined - we'll keep you posted!

We are planning to have an open house again this year on the weekend that many businesses hold theirs. That is usually the first Saturday in December. So mark your calendars for December 3rd, and plan to stop at the Calico Cow again! We had a lot of fun last year, and plan to do the same this year! We'll have door prizes, refreshments, and lots of quilts decorating the shop and the whole hallway!

We are looking for people to display and/or sell their quilts of any size. Please let us know as early as you can that you would like to do this, so we can send you more details. We had so many positive comments from the community last year we would like to make this an annual event, but we can't do it without the help of our favorite quilters!

Don't forget, we are Handi Quilter dealers, so if you're thinking about asking for your very own longarm machine for Christmas, come and see us! We can help you find just the right machine for you! Or take our class and rent the machine to finish your own quilts for those Christmas gifts!

Happy snowday and happy quilting!
