Postcard Party!

Postcard Party is an exciting, new nationwide event. On one of the dates listed below, come to the shop and make a postcard using a kit that we provide. It includes a 6” x 7” piece of fabric printed just for Colorado participants (each state has their own) and a piece of fusible stabilizer. Use your own fabric to make the opposite side of the postcard. Write a personal message on your card and when you’re done leave the finished piece with us. We’ll mail them all to Postcard Party Headquarters.

A few weeks later we’ll receive the number of postcards we sent in and they’ll be from quilters from all over the country. At that point we’ll display the cards and schedule a Mail Call Party for everyone who made a postcard. You’ll be assigned a number and choose your favorite postcard from the group. You can then swap with others until you are happy with the postcard you have. If you’d like, you can correspond with the person who made the postcard you end up with. Sound like fun? Join is on one of these dates.

Thursday, January 8, 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Thursday, January 8, 1 p.m. – 4 p.m.

Friday, January 16, 1 p.m. – 4 p.m.
Sunday, January 18, 1 p.m. – 6 p.m. (this will also be a Sewing Sunday day)

Cost for the kit is only $5. Limit one per person. We only have 38 postcards. Call 970-565-7541 to reserve your place for Postcard Party!

Curve It Up
Second Saturday of each month beginning January 10 (runs for six months)

$35 for the full series of classes with purchase of book and ruler

Make this modern 68″ x 86″ quilt over a six month period (two blocks per month) using the Quick Curve ruler. Envision it in brights, batik, or even thirties fabric.
