Current Class Schedule
Quilting Angels
Million Pillowcase  Challenge
Latest News

Hey Y'all!  First, you need to note the new shop hours!  We tweaked the hours to 11am - 3pm, Monday through Saturday.  Sundays, we will be open from noon - 4pm.

Secondly,  we are experimenting with online signups for our classes starting today!  Woohoo!  You can still download the Current Class Schedule in PDF format from the top menu so that you can see all of the details.  To find the class list, scroll down this email to below the Shop Dog column (I KNOW why you guys read our emails...it's the dogs, right?) 

Anyway, if you find a class that you want to sign up for, click on the name of the project on this email and the link should direct you to our webstore so that you can sign up!  Your order will be emailed to me with an order number and that is how I will know who signed up before another person.  All classes will be filled on a first-come; first-served basis.  When the shop is open, the staff will sign you up in the sequence in which the order were placed.  You will get an email or a phone call that your class reservation was made and paid for.  Hopefully we will be able to add other features as I learn them...but it's a start, right?   

Note that we are announcing the next One and Done event, which is scheduled for September 19, 2020 and the project is called Southern Cross.  We are using Moda's Bloomington and you can choose your accent color and border choice.  Anyway, because we are carefully trying to maintain social distancing in our classes, class size is limited.  The One and Done will be offered in 2 different sessions, morning and afternoon.  Morning session is 9am-noon, Afternoon session is 1-4.  All participants receive a totally precut class kit, lunch (served noon -1), snacks, and a swag bag!  This is a fun, easy project, suitable for beginners!  (must have made at least one quilt).  It's a lot of fun and you pay $120 if you sign up for the event by July 4.  After July 4, the event price goes up to $140.  Space is limited so sign up soon!

Be careful in this rain folks and keep wearing those masks!  

ALSO - Just so you know...we are offering super event pricing for my favorite Janome sewing machine, the 9450.  The price is for a NEW machine, which is IN STOCK NOW.   Details on the machine are at the bottom of the email.  This machine has been the best selling sewing machine we have ever had in the shop.  Reliable, feature-rich, superior 25 year limited warranty, free guide class with every machine and more.  If you are in the market for a new machine...THIS is the one I really think you should look at.  It's the machine I sew on every day at home.  I know you will love it!

Stay dry folks!  Hugs, Rose Ann

Notes from the Shop Dog
Katey with Alison.JPG

<sniff>  I want to tell you about what is going on here.  Its too wainy outside and Mommy won't let us go out to pway, only to potty.  Mommy is washing the fwoor every day and she says that we bring in too much dirt.  And, and, and, <sniff> I wuv Baiwey. But he wants to pway wiff Eddie more than me.  Baiwey will pway wiff me and kissy on my face but when we are pwaying in the house, he just runs away from me and it hurts my feewings.  He wants to wrestle with Eddie all the time.  How can he look at me and not want to pway wiff me. <sniff>  Mommy says that boys like to pway with boys and they pway too hard anyway and they might hurt me.  I'm tuff and I can pway hard too!  <sniff>  I'm gonna sit on Mommy's lap and cwy now.  Maybe Baiwey will feew sowwy for me and cuddle.  

Your little fwend, Katey-no  <sniff>
