This is a picture of the new BOM that will be held at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  General’s Wives BOM features General’s Wives Collection of fabrics by Nancy Gere.   Our very talented teacher Maggie will be leading this class and lending all her tips and techniques for making this awesome quilt.  The class which begins in February. 
This is the first block that the group will be making.   Are you drooling over these beautiful fabrics?   Check the calendar on the sidebar or call the shop for further details.

 DON’T FORGET:  SNOWDAYS is being held at the Attic Window Quilt Shop during the Month of January.  There are specials all month long as well as a free snowman pattern and snowflakes.  There is also a scissor sharpening special this month.  Bring in two pair of scissors to be sharpened and get the second pair at half price.

The Heart of Winter Tour is Feb. 11.  You won’t want to miss this.  You can sit back and relax while the bus driver takes us to Quilted Memories in Montague, Around the Block in Portland, Quilts Plus in Kalamazoo, and of course, the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  I’ve heard about how much fun everyone has on these bus tours and have been unable to participate in the past.  This year I get to take advantage of the ride, the discounts, and the free patterns because I’m going.   I’m really looking forward to a day of shopping, laughter, and being with women who talk quilt.   Call the shop and make your reservation now. 

S.O.T.A.K. Handmade has a nice tutorial for making a sewing machine cover.  My room is so dusty I think I need to make one of these.  It’s a nice way to use up your scraps too.
Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!
