Good Afternoon!

Have you got all your Christmas shopping done?  We have a special on gift certificates; Buy a $100 certificate and get a $10 one free.  Buy a $50 certificate and get a $5 one free.

Also if you have more gifts to make, we have all Halloween, fall and last years Christmas fabric on sale at 50% off starting December 8th through December 13th.  It will be in the center room where the cash register is located.

Don't forget to bring your decorated Christmas tree panel in for the contest.  We have 2 turned in already.  They are due December 12th.

We are working on classes and BOM's for next year. We will post January's schedule by December 19th.  If there are any classes you would like for us to teach next year let us know and we will try to get them set up.  BOM's we are going to do are Poppy Panache by Ann Lauer of Grizzly Gulch Designs.  Ann designed the fabric for Benartex and created the pattern.  We are also going to do Dear Jane (we must have at least 6 sign up to make it worth our time to do this.)  Dear Jane is a 24 month program containing 225 patterns from the 1863 Jane A. Stickel Quilt.  Also planning on doing the Garden Tea Party, a 6 month series, by The Quilt Company, consisting of teapots, teacups and flowers.  Also will be doing the Quilt Diva wall hanging with all the pieces laser cut and ready to go.  Keep tuned for more announcements.

Our third annual February Quilt Retreat is scheduled for the week of February 23rd, at Kinonia Church Retreat Center. Cost is $275 for full week, or $55 for individual nights; if you prefer to commute the fee is $40 per day.  You will need to bring your own sheets, pillows, blankets, towels and flip flops for shower.  Will have a lady on site to cook.  Shop's number is 217-245-9190.  Limited to 14 or 15 people.

Also don't forget the Paducah trip April 24th and 25th.  We will be staying at the same motel as last year.  Go to quilt show and Hancock's on Friday and shop hop on the way home on Saturday. The bus is over half full now, so get your name in.  Cost is $149.95; deposit is $5o and due by January 25th, 2015 with balance due before March 15th, 2015.

Thank You for your continued support and patronage.
