QUILT CHALLENGE!
We have seen a nice response the Quilt Challenge and it isn't too late for others to participate!  Please consider joining the challenge and make a quilt using holiday fabric!  We have a great selection of Holiday themed fabrics...Thanksgiving, Winter, Christmas, etc!

Do you have an idea for a holiday quilt that could possibly win a Viewer's Choice voting?  Well, lets see what you can do!!!  We are hosting a Quilt Challenge with the theme "Holiday Quilts" and the winner will take away a gift basket valued at $250!

If you want to participate, purchase a minimum of 4 yards of holiday and blender fabric at QE and make a quilt top (design of your choice) and return it to the shop by Sunday, October 25, we will hang it in the shop and host a Viewer's Choice voting on the weekend of October 31-November 1.  The quilt should be a throw sized quilt...approx. 60"x60".  

If you choose to enter, fill out the registration form (available at the Quilter's Emporium counter), pay the $5 entry fee and purchase your fabric.  That's it!   Oh, yea..make the quilt top and bring it in!

Also during that same weekend, we will host an "I Miss Quilt Shows" Fun Day in the shop.  Stay tuned for more details!

Here are some great features that I love in the M7!  

Unsurpassed light - 9 super-bright LEDs that illuminates the whole bed of the machine!  
There are suction cups under the feet of the machine that prevent the machine from bouncing around on your work table...brilliant idea!
13.5" to the right of the needle and 17.81" total work area!  That's HUGE!
Bright, slick, white extension table with ruler markings in black...so easy to see and measure!  Has a storage drawer!  The white table reflects the light which makes visibility even better!
Automatic Presser Foot Lift
Magnetic needleplate release - so easy...just push a button!
Sews up to 1300 stiches per minute!
400 stitches plus Stitch Composer software so you can design your own stitches!
Separate bobbin winding motor
Built in dual vertical thread stands - use those cones of thread that you have collected!
Super powerful brushless DC motor - sews through 20 layers of fabric as if it was only 2 layers!  That's huge if you sew leather or denim.   
Over $700 worth of feet and accessories included in the box.  Includes over 23 presser feet and 3 needleplates!
On-screen clock 
Quilt Block Advisor - on screen - helps you calculate number and size of patches to be cut for 6 quilt block designs. You tell it how big your block with be and it tells you the rest!  Log Cabin, 9 Patch and more! 
9mm maximum stitch width - that's 90 needle positions - now THAT's accuracy!
AcuSpark Tutorial - download the free app and aim your smartphone on the QR code.  It shows you all the info you need for wherever you are on the display - how to use a presser foot and more!  It's like having a teacher with you all the time!



Capistrano - 2021 Saturday Sampler

            Capistrano batik.jpg  Capistrano brights.jpg
"CAPISTRANO"
2021 Saturday Sampler or Block of the Month Program

OUR 2021 SATURDAY SAMPLER PROGRAM "CAPISTRANO" 
STARTS ON NOVEMBER 7!!! 
94"x94" 


"Capistrano", designed by our own Pam Baum, is designed with a nod to Studio 180 tools! All block and setting kit instructions are written for the use of Studio 180 tools AND traditional piecing techniques...so if you haven't jumped on the Studio 180 bandwagon, please don't feel that we don't want you...we do! 

This quilt is offered in two different colorways, batiks or brights. Because of COVID-19, we are breaking from the Saturday Sampler tradition by also offering this quilt as a Block of the Month program that is available by mail. 

Customers who feel comfortable making it to the Saturday Sampler meetings (social distancing observed), they earn a small thank you gift at each of the monthly meetings. Another perk, participants do not have to make the block each month and show it at the next meeting. You can make it when you are ready. 

Registration fee of $50 covers all 12 6" monthly block kits. The setting kit costs $265. The setting kit includes participation in the hands-on workshops for those who wish to get assistance. It also includes fabric and exclusive pattern for the entire quilt top, borders, and binding. 

This is a gorgeous project and we hope you sign up soon either online on our website www.quiltersemporium.com (left hand menu, click on Capistrano) or by calling the shop at (281) 491-0016



Notes from the Shop Dogs


Katey sleeping on Bailey.jpg

Hi Peoples!  Katey-no here!  We had wots and wots of wain this week...did you?  I hope eweryone is ok!  

Mommy was reawy, reawy gwad that we didn't wose ewectricity.  She got to sit on her chair and read and we got to sit with her and take naps.  I use Baiwey as a piwow, as you can see.  He is fwuffy and swishy and I wuv him a lot.  

BAILEY:  OK Katey-no....That's enough.  Sheesh.  Is nothing sacred?  Mom did you HAVE to choose that picture?  I was asleep for gosh sakes!

Mom has already started cutting student's class fabric to prep for the November One and Done!  That's a lot of cutting!  Do you realize that you get to make a quilt that looks complicated AND your kit is totally pre cut?  You can also choose whatever fabric you want to use in the shop!  That's crazy!!!!  There is space for only 18 people for that day, so if you always wanted to make a Hunter's Star quilt...now's the time.  It's a great project and with the corners already trimmed...it's a piece of cake!

hmmmmm...piece of cake...Hey MOM!  Do we have cake?????? 

KATEY-NO:  Baiwey went to the kitchen, so good-bye!  We wuv you!

Wicks and kisses, Katey-no, Eddie, Baiwey, Emma and Joanie
