Hi Quilters!

We hope you are enjoying the last month of Summer! August is a month of fun, from harvesting gardens, hiding inside from the heat for some cool sewing, swimming, vacations, shop hops, and everything in between.

We have some super fun things happening in August at the quilt store. The Crazy 8 Shop Hop is happening August 11-13th from 9am-6pm and we have our first ever quilt retreat happening August 29-Sept 1 (we still have a few spots open!) . We also have some pretty fantastic Husqvarna Viking specials too!

July/August/September Classes!

Hi Quilters!

Row By Row is full steam ahead! If you haven't heard about Row By Row here's the details:

It's like a shop hop, but it's not... no fees, no cards to stamp, and all summer to play! Simply visit any of the participating shops and receive a free pattern for a row in a quilt. Combine your rows in any way to create a unique quilt that represents the fun you had traveling throughout the summer. Travel with friends, discover new quilt shops and have fun collecting rows!

Create a quilt using at least 8 different 2016 rows from 8 different 2016 participating RxR shops and be the first to bring it into a participating shop to win a stack of 25 fat quarters (6-1/4 yards of fabric!). Use that shop’s row in your quilt and win a bonus prize! More details available at https://www.rowbyrowexperience.com/

Row by Row Experience has only a few rules: one pattern per person, and we can not mail you a pattern. Please help us maintain integrity and don’t ask us to break these two rules!

Since we have two shops, we have two rows!

 Introducing Gail Kellogg of Medford, OR. National Education Coordinator for RNK Distributing and Jenny Haskins Certified Educator.

With over 40 years of sewing experience and 30 years of that as a teacher, Gail has done it all! Heirloom Sewing, Quilting, Embroidery, Home Dec, Children’s Clothing, and More. She has spent most of her life helping others find the joy she grew to love at such a young age. Gail finds that creating a fashionable garment, a creative home project, or a beautiful quilt is one of the most satisfying for home sewers of any skill level, and loves to show her event attendees how anyone can accomplish these projects with the amazing tools available in the industry today.

Attendees love her creativity and the simple easy to understand way she presents. This no doubt is a gift, but it is also the result of having spent her time as a student of other great teachers. Gail’s formal education included courses in Tailoring, Industrial Shortcuts, and Pattern Drafting. She is a Licensed Martha Pullen Instructor, and Certified Jenny Haskins Educator.

Gail’s love for Sewing and Quilting along with her continued education and training has made her one of the most requested educators in the industry. She has traveled the US from Coast to Coast sharing her amazingly creative ideas and left audiences in every city with new inspiration and determination to unleash their own creativity.

If you have ever attended one of Gail’s hundreds of classes or events, you already love her, if you haven’t had the opportunity to meet Gail and learn from her, you must. From the moment she begins to speak, you will understand why her students come away from classes mesmerized by her knowledge and gentle spirit.

Don’t miss her at the next Jenny Haskins Touch of Magic Tour!


*Side note: We had Gail come last year for our Husqvarna Viking event last year and EVERYONE loved her. She has SO MUCH knowledge and has the most charming personality- you can't help but to love her instantly.  We are completely jumping out of our skin with excitement that she is coming to our retreat.
