On  April 1st --- April Fools Day --- Stop by the shop to see what items will be on Sale.  Don't let Gertie pull a April Fools Prank on you.       

Bus Trip --- I think the trip is going to be two days June 21 & June 22.  We will be going to Quilt Shops in Illinois and Missouri.  With the new schedule,  we will be able to have more time to shop at  each store.  I think the new cost will be $199.  This will cover all the travel, hotel and food.  Please call the shop to get a seat on the bus.  We will need a $50 non-refundable to hold seat.  Balance due  by May 20th.

We will be having a Commuter Retreat --- May 20, 21, 22, and 23 ---Monday thur Thursday.  We will have it at the shop.  Bring your sewing machine and projects on Monday -- Leave in the evening - come back the next day.
We will have pasteries for breakfast and lunch and supper catered in.    You can start at 8 a.m. and sew until 8 p.m. each day.  The cost of this will be $27.50 per day.  Limit is 12 people.  Please let us know as soon as possible,  if you are wanting to come.  A $27.50 deposit to hold your seat.  We will refund deposit, if cancelled before May 6th.  We will have projects available with Demo's. 

Jersey Gals Quilt Guild will meet on April 17 at 10 a.m.   Meeting starts at 10 a.m. and will ends at noon.  This month we will discussing the flying geese and half square triangles and some people will bring  examples.  Also we will be playing left - right - center --- each person should bring in 3 ugly fat quarters to play the game with.  See you there.

A Year to Crow  About Block of the Month  will start on April 3rd.  If you want to sew here - sewing on the project will start at 10:30 a.m.   -- You can also pick you block if you are sewing at home on the 3rd or anytime after that date.  The samples will be at the shop after the Decatur Quilt Show which is this Friday and Saturday.

General Wives BOM --- we will be running this BOM again for those who missed it the first time.  If you need a class to complete this block just let us know.  The sample will be back at the shop after the Decatur Quilt Show.  It is a really nice quilt.  Should be starting in May 2013.  Please call and sign up so we get the kits ready. 

Block of the Months  Going to Start Soon ---
  Toes in the Sand - Starting in  May --

The Second Saturday Sampler will  start APRIL 13 AT 11 A.M. and will be using the Underground Railroad Book.  The way it works is you purchase the book here and the first month block 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 your 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,  you will have all the fabric to make your blocks.  However, you must purchase the sashing and border fabric.  Please let us know if you are interested so we have enough books and kits.
