We’re launching a Landscape Challenge on September 8 at a bring-your-lunch gathering where you’ll get ideas about landscape quilting and share any quilts that you’ve already made.

Patty Joy will teach a landscape quilting class on Saturday, October 8.

At this same meeting, Janet Huffman and Judith Swain will facilitate a discussion about forming a local Art Quilt group. If you’re interested in art quilting please join us to provide input about what you’d like group become.

If you participated in our most recent Mystery Quilt – or even if you didn’t – please join us on Saturday, September 10 at 9 a.m. for the Big Reveal. Enjoy seeing how different every quilt turns out even though they’re all the same pattern. We’ll launch a NEW mystery quilt at the gathering. If you purchase fabric for it on the day of the reveal you’ll receive 10% off your purchase.

September Demos
Thursday, September 15, 12:30 p.m.
AND Saturday, September 17, 9:00 a.m.

For our September Demo, Aimee King will give a presentation of how to design your sewing space so that you can work at your cutting table and sewing machine with greater comfort. In a past life Aimee taught “back school” for the physical therapy department at Southwest Memorial Hospital. If you have issue with neck or back discomfort while sewing, you won’t want to miss Aimee’s presentation. Join us either Thursday, 9/15 at 12:30 or on Saturday, 9/17 at 9 a.m. when the presentation will be repeated.

Row by Row

It’s back! Row by Row is a nationwide shop hop that runs from the first day or summer until the day after Labor Day. Each participating shop creates their own quilt row. Visit shops and pick up kit or pattern for their row, as well as custom fabric license plates. The theme this year is “Home Sweet Home.” Here’s our row, along with both of our license plates. Get more information here on how you can collect eight different rows, create a quilt, and win a prize.
