Jam Packed Newsletter!

Hi Quilters!

The  Lewiston Shop hop is THIS WEEKEND- May 12-13th! We are so excited to see your cute selves!

You'll notice in the newsletter that we are getting a guest teacher- Swan Sheridan from Arizona! She is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. Seriously..... but don't let that intimidate you. Last year we had so many of you tell us after she left that you didn't take her classes because she was so far above your skill level- and you were too scared to take them. The whole point of classes are to get better and make the skills of your craft stretch even farther- PLUS you get to have some fun times with friends! While Swan is the top of the top free motion quilters- she teaches at YOUR level. She can help you as a beginner or she can help you if you are an advanced free motion quilter. Every single person who has taken her classes have walked away better..... so what do you have to lose? (Pretty much nothing...)
We just got an email from Husqvarna Viking Head Quarters announcing a BIG DESIGNER EPIC™ Promotion
