Lotto Blocks:
Congratulations to our May Lotto Block winner... Debbie Smith!!! It was such a cute block to win!

Our June Lotto block is here and ready for you to nab up.

If you don't know how our Lotto Blocks work here's the details: Anyone is welcome to participate! Lotto blocks are $1.50 per month. We supply the pattern and a piece of the fabric (this month we are supplying the star fabric)- and you provide the rest. If you get your lotto block turned in before the last day of the month your name gets put into a jar and we draw a winner, who will receive all of the lotto blocks that have been turned in. We have lots of customers who play by mail- so if you are one of our out of town friends and want to play- Call the shop 208-983-0254 and we can sign you up!

Row by Row Experience:

This year we are participating in the Row by Row Experience! We are so excited!!!  Not sure what that is? We'll tell you!
How about this… 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!

Please see the Row by Row website for a complete list of rules.

This year our row was designed by Swan Sheridan of Swan Amity Studios. We were so lucky to have her trunk show with us last summer- but we are even luckier she agreed to design our gorgeous row! Please go to her website http://swanamity.com/ and like her on Facebook.

There may be additional class costs for special sewing supplies, such as patterns, or special rulers, etc.  Fabric requirements will be listed.  Once you register for your class and receive your Supply List, you will qualify to receive a 15% discount on all required supplies. To receive the discount, you must have your Supply List with you when you make your purchase.   NOTE:  Students are required to have their own patterns and tools during classes.  This enables the classes to stay on the curriculum schedule rather than having the class wait while students borrow supplies from each other.**
