NEW CLASSES AT THE ATTIC WINDOW QUILT SHOP


Teachers at the Attic Window Quilt Shop met last night to plan and schedule classes for the upcoming months and to show samples of their projects.  They have graciously let me give you a sneak peek.  Above is Buffie’s Foundation Piecing.  She has several different versions and this is a snippet from her I Spy Quilt. 
This is a small piece of Buffie’s Album quilt.  I’ll show all of Buffie’s quilts as we get closer to class time. 
 
This wool project is by new teacher, Teresa.  She was unable to attend the meeting, so I’ll try to get a picture of her soon.
Above, Carolyn has spread out some of her blocks to show us her new Stack & Whack project.  Watch for more pictures of the full projects as it gets closer to class time.  Look for the new schedule of classes and Newsletter which we hope to have out by the first of December.

Don’t forget that the Friday after Thanksgiving is the Early Bird Special and Sit and Stitch time at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  The shop will open at 7 a.m.  A make it and take it project will be available, as will donuts and snacks.   If you’d like to get away from the maddening crowds on Black Friday, come sit and sew with us.  You could finish up a UFO, work on a new project, or just enjoy visiting with your quilting friends.

 Christmas Craft Day is Saturday, November 26, from 9-5 at the shop.  Be sure an call to register for these fun projects. 

Are you ready for the holidays?  I’m listening to Christmas music and getting as excited as my great grandchildren.  I have a million things I want to make.  Each day I find a new project that keeps calling to me.  Like this one at Quilt Story.  This is a nice tutorial for a holiday Table runner. 

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

Wow will you be busy in the coming months, lol! Looks like you have some great classes scheduled. I haven't started listening to Christmas music yet, I keep forgetting it's playing! I hardly ever listen to the radio.
Thanks for the link to the table runner, I love it!

I'm not even getting out Thanksgiving decorations this year. We are transitioning straight to Christmas from Halloween. Going to rehearsals for A Christmas Carol almost every night this month has put me in the mood early!
