Hi Everyone:                                                                                                                               217-245-9190

What a nice warm day today!!!!

Don't forget about the SOUPER BOWL -- FEB. 3, 2013 - SHOP IS PROVIDING THE SOUP -- from 12 noon to 4 p.m. This will give you time to shop, sew and eat.  Bring a snack to share.  Please call the shop to let us know you are coming.


The Jersey Gals Quilt Guild met last week.  We had a great time trying to figure out who made which quilt block. These blocks are now going to be made into a quilt to donate to charity.  Our guild is now up to 18 members. Next Month is a  sewing day.  Bring your sewing machine and any project you want to work on.  The group will also decide the layout of the blocks from last meeting. Bring a dish for lunch to share.  Next meeting date February 20 at 10 a.m.  Come and join us.

QUESTION:  We have been asked to have a hand piecing series of classes.  If you are interested in this, please let us know.  We need a few more people for this series. The plan would be to piece and quilt this project by hand.

Block of the Months --- We have a few going on --- Buck A Block --- Stonehenge -- Mystery Quilt Club.

Block of the Months  Going to Start Soon --- A Year to Crow About -Should start in March --  Toes in the Sand - Starting in Mid April or May -- Second Saturday Sampler Quilt will start April 13, 2013.


The Second Saturday Sampler will be using the Underground Railroad Book.  The way it works is you purchase the book and the first month you pay $5.00.  This gets you your fabric for the first block.  The next month you bring back your finished block at 11 o'clock and listen to the information on the second block. If you block is finished you get the 2nd block fabric free.  If you don't have it completed or do not make it to the 11 o'clock meeting you pay $5.00.  At the end of the you will have all the fabric to make your block.  However, you much purchase the sashing and border fabric.  Please let us know if you are interested so we have enough books and kits.
