Nice to have a few good weather days --

The shop has received in a number of bolts of fabric the past couple of weeks.
Today we received charm packs from Northcott which is called Artisan Spriti - Shimmer.  They are really nice colors.

We also received in two Stonehinge backing bolts -- one is the multi color of the purple, pinks and greens.  Our first bolt of this sold out really quickly.  The second bolt is a gray multi colored.

We really had a great time at the retreat.  Got a lot of sewing done  - ate well - had demos on a number of projects and had a great time working and taking with others.  I am scheduing another Retreat for the Week of September 15 -- this will be limited to 14 people. 

SCRAPPY SERIES -- WILL MEET March 10TH -- 10 A.M.  -- WE HAVE ROOM FOR MORE SCRAPPERS.  BRING IN YOUR FABRIC SCRAPS AND MAKE SOMETHING OUT OF THEM.   Come in and join the fun.


The Jersey Gals Quilt Guild quarters next meeting is March 19th. This day we will be having a demo on using two different fabrics for binding -- one fabric on the top and different fabric on the back. Also, will have demo on machine sewing the binding down on the top side.

It was decided to have a potluck -- so bring food to share.


We still have a couple of the  Block of the week--- This is a  Merry Xmas Y'all Wall Hanging.  This is a weekly Block --- costing $14.95 for 6 weeks.  Come in and get started on this cute wall hanging.  The sample is at the shop.

Revised info on Paducah trip - we have a stand by list started.

March 12-- Having a class on the Disappearing Nine - Window Pane Quilt.  Cost of the class is
$15.00 and materials needed are 5" squares and black fabric.  We will have kits available.

March 11 -- Binding Class with hands on practice. -- We will demo all aspects of the binding from
figuring how much is needed  - mitered corners - and attaching the binding together.  Class is free - call to save you a spot -- Afternoon class -- 2 p.m. and evening class  5:15 p.m.


Starting April  15,  starting the sampler quilt called, The Farmers Wife -- This quilt will have 112 - 6" square blocks.   We would like to have people interested in working on this BOM  to call so we can have books, and templates necessary.  We are thinking that it will require completing 9 blocks per month to complete in 13 months.  Please let us know if you are interested so we will have books and kits.

We have a couple of ideas from customers that we are working on getting set up for a club or class.  If you have any suggestions for classes please let us know.
