We are participating once again in the Row by Row Experience this Summer. Starting on June 21st you can start collecting the free patterns from any participating shop. If you complete at least 8 of the rows from 8 different stores you are eligible to win 25 fat quarters! We are also offering a special prize if you are the first to bring in a finished quilt that contains our row! Here is our row...
"Home is Where The Dots Are"
This is a fused fabric collage. Templates will be provided for the houses and the flowers are fussy cut. Easy Peasy! You know how we adore the Kaffe Fassett Collective fabrics, so we used them in our row! Our fabric license plates are coming soon! You will be surprised when you see our phrase!
We still have openings in our Tuffet Workshops. July is filling fast! Join us July 9th and 10th, or July 9th and 16th for this 2 part workshop.
After the workshop you will have a completed tuffet (foot stool) with beautiful furniture grade legs!
The August dates are the 6th and 7th or August 6th and 13th. In October we will have another opportunity to create this amazing home accessory. October 22nd and 23rd or October 22nd and 29th. The workshop dates are structured for you to have the option of completing your tuffet in a weekend or by coming back to the shop on two Saturdays. You can even sew the tuffet top on a June or July Saturday and finish on the October Saturday. We can be very flexible to meet your schedule!
Our machine embroidery "Stitch Party's" are in full swing. Join us the 3rd Friday of every month to make a small project in the hoop.
Call to register 802-824-5700 as space is limited. Our next party is Friday June 17th from 9:30 to Noon. Would you like to learn more about machine embroidery? You can come and observe the stitching in action!
This Saturday, June 11th is for English Paper Piecing. Bring your project in progress or learn how to create amazing pieced hexagons using simple techniques. Here are some of Shelley's latest pieced hexagons for our Block of the Month, "Glorious Hexagons" which is now in month #5.
"Our Small World" Block of the month is in month #5. Judith has done an amazing job with the fabric selection and piecing. Her extra instructions are also very helpful to supplement Jen Kingwell's pattern.
Only 3 more months to go. Can't wait to see the finished product!
