News and Classes...

Hi Quilters!

We hope you are having a great beginning to your summer! Just to let you know-the second block of Crabapple Hill's Girls' Getaway will be here NEXT WEEK! Woot! We have loads of patterns on their way. We are so excited to share with you what it is..... ready?.....

Is it not the cutest outdoor clawfoot tub? Glamping at it's finest!
Stay tuned for class dates!

We just wanted to remind you about our guest teacher Swan Sheridan who is coming 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...)

Also... we have some super sad news.... we had to use a tissue. One of our favorite little machines is discontinued!

The Husqvarna Viking HClass 100Q is getting taken off the line up. Husqvarna Viking is completely sold out of them at their warehouses..... but the good news: We have 2 available as cash and carry machines- one at each location.
.... and BONUS- the 25% off of everything Husqvarna Viking special through the end of the month works on this too!

Have you checked out our website yet??
We have been working hard and putting our inventory into the new website- and we finally got it all in! In most cases, we offer FREE SHIPPING! WOOT!!! You can also sign up for our classes online through the website! We are so excited for you to utilize it and share with your friends our awesome hometown quilt shop.
We will see you soon!
From our laps to yours,
