August-October News and Class Schedule
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
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
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):
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!
Carol and Claudia and Gracie too!
