We will be starting a new Second Saturday BOM in January 2018 --- We will be using Eleanor Burns - El's Kitchen quilt book.   Please let us know if you are interested and if you need a book...we have a sign-up sheet at the shop or you can call the shop at 217-245-9190.   A reminder how this BOM works -- the first month you purchase the book and pay $6.00 for fabric for the first block.  The following month you bring in your completed block and you get the fabric for that months block for $2.00.  You will need to purchase your sashing and border fabrics down the road. The center 20" block is optional and will be available for purchase.


We are planning a late night sew on Saturday, November 4th starting at 5:00 pm.  Come by the store to sign up or call to reserve a seat.  Bring a snack to share.
