February 29th...

Happy Friday!

Sorry about the small print, we are a bit wordy this week, and it wouldn't fit with regular size print.

Have you seen a picture of the awesome Ladies of the Sea quilt? It is an applique quilt with historical ships and a floral border. We ordered this for Jan Golden, she will have this beautiful quilt done in no time and we will still be dreaming about starting it.

A new class that has been added to our schedule is the Twist and Shout Tote Bag. It will be taught by Brooke and her assistant will be Aunt Gee Gee (Janet). Class date is March 16th, from 12:30 to 3:30 pm, and the class fee is $20.00. Please sign up at least one day in advance.

Things coming up the week of March 2nd (wow, March already)…..
The James Stitching Sisters will be here Tuesday, March 4th 10 am to 4 pm. If you can spare some time, come and sew. They provide the fabrics, we have the machines.
Fat Quarters Guild will be here Tuesday Night 6 - 8. Come for a no commitment fun evening.

Marty, from Quilt Beginnings will be here Friday, March 7th beginning at 2:00 pm to show the Pfaff sewing machines. Please call the shop for an appointment (614 539-7845)
On the 8th, We are visiting Ireland for our Mystery evening. Call the store for details.
Also, on the 8th will be the James Stitching Sisters 4th Annual Quilt Day at the Haimerl Center on Morse Road from 9am to 5 pm. This will be a very emotional day for everyone because two of the founding members of the Stitching Sisters have recently passed away. A couple of weeks ago Joyce Kerzee, who was one of the sweetest people I know passed away. Today is the memorial service for Julie Aleshire. I went to Washington Court House to visit with the family last evening and it was quite apparent how loved Julie was. I had to wait in line for over an hour to pay my respects. As I waited in the halls I enjoyed looking at the wall hangings and plaques decorating the walls. I was not suprised to see Julie had been a Church Member of the year. In the back of the church there was a quilt made by various church family members. It was hard to miss the Aleshires family block for it was beautiful. I thought it was very touching that there were a number of Julie's quilts displayed among the flower arrangements. She was quite an accomplished quilter and will sadly be missed by her quilting friends.
It 3:30, and FEd Ex just brought a huge shipment of City Girls from Benartex. Very young, fresh, teal, brown & green, Amy Butlerish... Won't be around long. Brooke "called it" she is making a sample... lol
Have a great weekend! Stop in and say hi!
Mary... and Sharon (our new official marketing and pr VP)
