August-October News and Class Schedule


Hi Folks: My how time flies! I had hoped to get a newsletter and class schedule out in July but it just didn't happen! So, I guess "better late than never"! LOL

LITTLE LANDSCAPE CLASS - Saturday, August 27th and Saturday, October 8th - 10 AM til 4 PM - Cost $25.
We've had so many requests for this class that I am scheduling it twice....but, be sure to sign up early as I limit the class to just four students. The hardest part to this class is choosing your fabrics but I'm here to help you!

GIRL'S NIGHT OUT - Friday, September 2nd - 5 PM til ? or anytime you can get here after work!
Bring any project you'd like to work on...doesn't have to be just quilting....it can be knitting, crochet, cross stitch or whatever. Spend an enjoyable evening with the girls.

BEGINNER PAPER PIECING CLASS - Saturday, September 10th - 10 AM til 4 PM - Cost $25.
Let's make a No-Whine Baby Tumbling Block quilt. Learn to paper piece the correct way and you'll love the method. It's sooo accurate because there are lines to stitch on! Great fun!

TABLE RUNNER CLASS - Saturday, September 17th - 10 AM til 4 PM (if you need that long!) - Cost $25.
(includes pattern in the price). Stop in to see our sample (already hanging). We'll be using the Blockade pattern. This pattern works best using high contrast fabrics ie: black and white! Easy enough for a beginner to tackle.

TEN PACK QUILT - Saturday, September 24th - 10 AM til 4 PM - Cost $25.
Make a quilt using 10" blocks....great technique to use scrappy fabrics. We'll have kits cut if you'd like to use one. Beginner friendly too.

TOASTY TOES - Saturday, October 1st - 10 AM til 4 PM - Cost $25.
We've done this class before and it is always a winner. Uses 6 fabrics that "mush" together in color. Only two blocks and easy to master! This quilt will become your favorite!

BAMBOO and PINWHEELS - Saturday, October 15th and Saturday, October 22nd - 10 AM to 4 PM BOTH days - Cost is $40.
This is a very striking quilt and when you cut out one quilt, you have a second quilt already started. We will focus on the BAMBOO quilt. Stop in to see our sample (which is hanging behind the cutting counter).

OUT ON A LIMB - Saturday, October 29th - 10 AM til 4 PM - Cost is $25.
Another fun quilt or wall hanging! Uses 2.5" strips. Fun to make!

Book early....classes will fill up quickly! Don't be left out!

A bit of humor for you (no offense intended for real blondes):


Blonde Joke!!!

A blonde was shopping at Target & came across a shiny silver Thermos. She was quite fascinated by it, so she picked it up & took it to the clerk to ask what it was.

The clerk said, 'Why, that's a thermos..... It keeps hot things hot, And cold things cold.'

'Wow, said the blonde, 'that's amazing....I'm going to buy it!' So she bought the thermos & took it to work the next day.

Her boss saw it on her desk. 'What's that,' he asked?

'Why, that's a thermos..... It keeps hot things hot & cold things cold,' she replied..

Her boss inquired, 'What do you have in it?'

The blond replied......'Two popsicles & some coffee.'

Although we have received many new Halloween and Christmas fabrics, we are still waiting for our Hoffman Christmas line. We do have lots of new stuff to check out so do stop in soon to see it all. See our new line by Kona Bay (beautiful flowers and butterflies), our Christmas Dr. Seuss line (great for pillowcases), and our newest batiks (perfect for Ten Pack, Out On A Limb and Toasty Toes quilts!! Since we didn't get our Hoffman Christmas line in time to hold a Christmas-In-July-Sale, how about a sale for my birthday and store anniversary....for one day only (August 13th) we'll pay your sales tax for you.

Well, this is turning into a novel so I'll stop for now. Hope to see you all soon!

Hugs,
Carol and Claudia and Gracie too!
