Take advantages of these fun new classes!

Hi Quilters!

We have heard you- and we're packing our newsletter full of classes! We hope you take advantage of all that's being offered. We are doing Judy Neimeier paper piecing quilts- with Rebecca Alter. She is amazing and knows lots of tips and tricks. If paper piecing is something that has scared you in the past- Give it a whirl with this fantastic  instructor.  We also are bringing lots of classes for you peeps with embroidery machines- and if you don't have an embroidery machine (yet) because you don't know the cool stuff you could make with one, call us and we will reserve one of our embroidery machines for you to use during class!

We're doing a UFO (un-finished objects) Challenge in both locations!  If one of your goals for the New Year is to wrap up some unfinished projects, we're here to help! The UFO Challenge begins February 1st and runs through April 30th . Each of those three months bring in up to 3 UFO's no later than the 10th to register them for $1 each. Return with any or all of them completed by the last day of the month and for each one finished your name will be entered into a drawing. We'll draw a name each month and the winner will receive a $50 gift certificate to the shop! Just think.... if you play for all three months you could finish up to nine projects!

For quilters, UFOs may be quilts, table runners, or wall hangings or purses, etc... - no size restrictions. For knitters and crocheters, anything unfinished on the day of registration is eligible.
Quilters: Take 15% off batting and backing fabric if you purchase those items for your UFO on the day you register. Knitters/ Crocheters: Take 10% off anything you purchase on the day you register your projects.
We  look forward to seeing what everyone brings in for thee challenge!

 This compact kit is perfect for changing baby on the go. The attractive wallet style clutch unfolds into a large, padded changing pad with plenty of pockets to store all the essentials. The pad removes for easy laundering or to allow the clutch to be used separately. An outer zippered pocket holds personal items and a handy flap closes the folded clutch keeping everything contained.

You can also make the fabric  of your choice into vinyl fabric to make the pad have an easy clean option. We'll show you how!

The clutch and the pad need to be quilted in order to have a better result. Since this takes time, we are offering a seperate time slot on Thursday, March 1st from 5:30-8 to come and do the quilting. If you don't have this pre-class homework completed and choose to spend your class time quilting your changing station, you won't get very far on finishing your project in class. We will be showing techniques on straight line quilting, free motion quilting, and also using the Westalee Quilting Rulers. There are many options, so don't be afraid to try them!  If this date doesn't work for your schedule, please call us and we can make arrangements for you to get quilting instructions at another time. 983-0254
