Free Demonstrations at the Good Time Quilters Show

Faux Piping (in white)
We have been very busy getting ready for our booth at the Goodtime Quilters QuiIt show. We are focusing on smaller kits for quick gifts and small wall hangings for instant gratification. We will have all kinds of kits, patterns, and other you-know-you-gotta-have items.

During the show there is a constant stream of free demonstrations by guild members and vendors. All of the demos sound interesting, some of the titles include 30 minute table runner, continuous prairie points, template free appliqué, twisted bow tie, no pain quilt basting, charm quilts, quilter's caddy. On Friday Deb will be showing the CrabApple Hill coloring and embroidery technique. On Thursday I am going to demo the quick casserole carrier, and  if you have not seen or made faux piping binding, you will be amazed by how easy it is to do. KyleAnn Williams and Karen Lane will be demonstrating this technique at the upcoming Goodtime Quilters Quilt Show in Circleville this Thursday at 1:00. No registration is needed - just come to the quilt show at the Trinity Lutheran Church, 135 E. Mound Street, Circleville, enjoy all the beautiful quilts and other items made by Guild members. most demonstrations will include a handout with step-by-step pictures. Did we mention the guild members have a great sale room. They are getting rid of their old fabric so that they can buy new stuff. Great place to get a lot of good deals.

KyleAnn has been very busy, too, creating a blog for an online quilt-along! Click here for details. The book she is featuring right now (Country Threads Goes to Charm School) is available through the shop for a limited time. We also have charm square packs similar to those featured on her new blog.

Even with all the activity in Circleville, we are open Friday 10 - 5 and Saturday 10 - 4. We are going to be closed Sunday and Monday  for the holiday! Be sure and stop in and see us!

Have a great week and a great Holiday weekend!
