Don’t you just love this quilt?  I do.  It was made during the Shop Swap.  Are you wondering about the Shop Swap?  What is it?  Where is it?  When is it? 

Quilted Memories in Montague, Michigan and the Attic Window Quilt Shop have teamed up to do a Shop Swap.  This is how it works.  You register at one of participating shops.  At that time you will get instructions and a kit.  The Swap begins on Sunday, Oct. 19, at which time, all participants will go to the Attic Window Quilt Shop and spend the day sewing on the project in your kit.  The following Sunday, October 26, you go to the Quilted Memories shop and finish your project.  Lunch will be served each Sunday (included in price).  Above is the beautiful quilt that Jill made during last year’s Shop Swap.  Now that I have your interest, call the shop to register and get more details.  Space is limited.

  • To mark your calendar for the West Michigan Quilters’ Guild Quilts on the Grand.  The date is October 3 – 5 at the DeltaPlex Arena.
  • On Thursday, October 9th at 10:00 A.M., Vickie will be holding a finishing class for her spiral lone star for anyone who has previously taken the class with her and who needs some extra help with the finishing steps. 
  • Shop Swap – Attic Window Quilt Shop and Quilted Memories – October 19 and 26
  • Alamosa Quilter has a tutorial for a cinch sack back pack.  This is the one that all the kids are raving about.  Check it out!
Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!
