New Classes March-May

Hello Quilters!

We got the first shipment of Husqvarna Vikings in last week and they are set up and ready for you to demo- We have more machines coming in, which have due to extreme weather conditions in the east- have been delayed a bit.... hopefully they will get here soon, as we are dying to have them!

To make room for our Husqvarna Vikings we are switching up the shop a bit- and this week all of our buttons are a whopping 50% off (excluding nickel buttons). We have decided to no longer carry buttons, except for the nickel buttons- so get them while you can! We've got lots and lots- from novelty down to plain.


Just so you can have it on your calendar, March 21st from 11-1pm we will be participating in the Grangeville Merchant's Chili Feed and contest. Visit all of your local merchants for a sample of chili and vote for your favorite! What a great way to get to know all of us!

We'll see you soon!

From Our Laps to yours,
Jody and the Gals at Home Grown Quilts

P.s. Be sure to keep up with the latest- Join our Facebook page!  or follow us on our blog-


We still have plenty of March's lotto blocks ready for you to pick up
