I got thinking as I drove to the shop this morning--- I know never know what I come up with.  I think we are going to have a
weekly - mystery quilt.  This is how it will work -- first week come in get your list for fabric and purchase- will get clue 1. You will get a new clue each week until it is completed.  The cost would be the cost of the fabric.  What do you think?  If you are interested call the shop.  I am looking a cool quilt to make.



The Second Saturday Sampler  - MAY 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.
