Calendar features a different page spread for all 52 weeks of 2011, each paired with a beautiful photograph taken by Alma of her stunning collection.
Whether she’s being chased by bees or bluffing at the quilt show, you’ll get to enjoy Mrs. Bobbins the whole year through!
Prefer a cushion when you sit to sew? Welllllll, check out The Gypsy Sit Upon. Sit comfortably for hours while quilting, sewing, reading, driving, and more.
Durable purple rubberized material remains soft and pliable. One size fits all!
You'd think that after the retreat that the shop would be real quiet. NOT! We've been quite busy - thank you very much! And what with the upcoming Race for the Cure, area quilt shows, and shop hops - wow! We are getting new fabric in nearly every day and just can't keep it on the shelves! (Thank you, thank you, thank you!) So you really want to stop in often to see what's new before it disappears. (see retreat pictures below)
Classes are going well. Patty's Complete Quilting class is nearly finished for this session and the follow-up class, Start Quilting Sampler, will begin soon.
For those interested in hand-applique, THIS SATURDAY (at 1:00 pm) is a beginning applique class (2-part class) Call the shop now to register. Be sure you leave your phone number and/or email address for the instructor to contact you before class. Part 2 is April 10. Supplies list: Background fabric: 16" x 14-1/2"; vinyl (approximately same size); fabrics for leaves, ghreads to match; permanent marker and fabric markers, freezer paper, sandpaper board is a help, paper scissors, small sharp pointed scissors, small applique pins plus a few large ones, any flexible needle (the thinner the better), round toothpicks.
KyleAnn's sock class is nearly finished - it's so exciting to see those socks nearing completion and "modelling." The next knitting class is a learn-how-to-knit class that will teach not only beginners how to get started but, for those ready for 'the next step' will showcase a different stitch motif each week. Details are not yet worked out, but will be at least a 7-week session.
Applique Club and EQ6 Club are going strong, but there's always room for more.
We will try to focus on a class at least once a month and hopefully more often.
Happy Spring to You! Stop in and Say Hi!
