Saturday, February 7, 2009


We had a Teacher’s meeting Friday night and you won’t believe what those women have in store for you. Here are just a few notes and pictures:

Sampler –If you haven’t signed up for the 2009 Sampler you will want to ASAP. The first session was Saturday, but there are numerous other sessions during the month. Check it out on the calendar or call the shop. It is a Mystery BOM so you can’t see a picture of the block until next month (It's not the house pictured here). Each month for only $3 you will receive your fabric and directions (You have three choices in fabrics: Civil War, Batik, or 30’s) and there will be demonstrations where you will learn something new. There also will be door prizes, and if you attend six months in a row and have your blocks finished on time, you can attend the seventh month for free. What a bargain!

Mystery Week Mar. 16-21 – Join the fun and make this 40 x 46” quilt. (It’s a mystery so no picture yet) You must register to participate as two different quilt shops are involved: Attic Window and Quilted Memories. During the week you will receive a kit that contains ½ the material and ½ the pattern instructions. You schedule a sewing time at each of the shops during that week. Start sewing at one shop on one day then go to the next shop on another day to get the rest of the material and pattern instructions and sew on your quilt at that shop. The registration fee includes the kit, instructions, and your meal (lunch or dinner) and you will receive 20% off on your shopping experience the day you visit the shop. Call the shop to sign up!

Rug Making - MaryAnne is teaching a beginner’s Rug Making class. This rug is square and not oval like the others she’s demonstrated and she says it’s easier to make. These rugs are so cute and you’d be amazed at how soft and flexible they are.

Tote Bag - Cindy has made another cute tote bag. This one is expandable. You can fold it up or down to meet your needs.

Small thread catcher: Isn’t this small bag adorable? Can’t you just see it in your sewing room catching all those threads and little snippets that used to land on your floor? Watch for Sue’s upcoming class in the next newsletter which should be out in March.

Student Gallery - Everyone loves seeing all the finished quilts that students bring in to the shop for show and tell. We want to show them all here on the blog but are limited on this one page, so we’ve created a separate area just for student projects. In the column to the right you will see a small box labeled Student Gallery (just like the "class samples" box). Click on the picture and you will be taken to a new area that has the pictures of your finished projects. This will be so nice because we won’t have to eliminate pictures when the first page gets too full. We love seeing what everyone has done so I hope you like this new area.

Don’t forget to check out the "My Blog List" in the sidebar. The new BOM patterns are out on some of them.

Happy Quilting
