No, Gene is not for sale.  I’ll tell you about the sale in a minute.  First I’d like to introduce you to Gene.  Gene is Lee Ann’s husband (see Lee Ann on yesterday's post) and is the handsome man who makes beautiful quilts for charity. 
This is one of Gene’s quilts.  You can see three others that he made here (scroll down).  As you can probably surmise from the photo I took, I had to catch Gene off guard to get a picture of him.  We’ve tried to get him to join us while stitching at the Attic Window Quilt Shop, however, he prefers to do his stitching at home.  Whatever he decides I hope he will continue to make his beautiful quilts!  Thank you, Gene!!

Now, about that SALE!!!   THE SPRING CLEAN-UP SALE is Thursday, March 20th through Saturday, March 22nd.  You will want to take advantage of this stupendous sale!   A little birdie told me Chris was adding more bolts of fabric to the sale table.  Gotta get there early!

  • 7th ANNUAL SPRING FLING SHOP HOP, March 28th through April 5th.  Six west Michigan shops are included with giveaways at each shop.  Passports can be purchased for $5 at any shop.  Visit the shop to sign up for a drawing and receive a free pattern.  At the end of the shop hop there will be a drawing for a sewing machine from completed passports.  Participating shops are:  Attic Window Quilt Shop; Calico Creations (South Haven); Custom Quilts Unlimited (Fennville); Pressing Matters Quilt Shoppe (Holland); Queen Bee Quilt Shoppe (Grand Rapids); So South Haven (South Haven). 
  • THE QUILTER'S ROAD TRIP is April.  12 Shops are participating.  Passports are $5.
  • Each shop chose a different month for its wallhanging.  Chris chose January because she loves snowmen.  Secretly she’s afraid we’ll all be made at her for choosing snowmen since we are so sick of snow here in Michigan.  I don’t think she needs to worry because that snowman is so darn cute!  Patterns and kits are available for purchase.
ON ANOTHER NOTEDog Under My Desk has a tutorial for Neat-N-Tidy zippered pouches.

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

Generosity has no bounds. Above are the women in the Quilts For Kids group at the Attic Window Quilt Shop. Left to right, Henrietta, Phyllis, Nancy, Carol, Karen. These women donate their time, fabric, money once a month to make quilts for kids who have cancer.
