Good Afternoon Quilters,
Well, the New Year has come, inventory is over and now it’s time to get working on those projects. I have finished up a couple of pillows, a few new samples and now working on a baby quilt. Too bad I have to start working on taxes now!!!
We have received a lot of new fabric, new machines and notions and we are setting up some great classes. If there is a class you would like to have, let us know and we will do our best to make it happen. We are bringing back the machine quilting class and we will follow up with a ruler class a few weeks later. Janome now has ruler feet for all of their machines.
We still have coupon books available. We will be giving them out free as long as they last. Thanks for emptying over 300 bolts in January!! It made room for all the new fabric.
February Coupon is –Buy one pattern – get one free!!If you see something on the internet or a magazine, let us know, we would be more than happy to order it in for you. Save on that shipping charge!

Here is a description of her presentation. “2019 was the centennial of the 18th amendment and this year in the centennial of the 20th amendment. Fighting form temperance and women’s right to vote took over 80 years. This presentation is a trunk show to tell the story, through quilts and other textiles, of women’s struggle to have a voice.” Meta’s presentation are always enjoyable and entertaining.
