Capistrano - 2021 Saturday Sampler

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


"Capistrano", designed by 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

Joey at Quilt Market 2_37505.jpgGOOD MORNING!  Joey loved being at Quilt Market!  Here he is all dressed up as Underdog with his market credentials on his collar.  He and Mom were at the Benartex booth because that is where is fabric is from.  People who worked at other fabric companies would come over to meet Joey and pet him...the ladies from Northcott really liked him.  We think every sales person over there came over to meet him.  He was a celebrity for sure!  It was great to know that part of the money made from the sales of his fabric was donated to Petfinder to help find homes for homeless animals.  What a great cause! 

We are having a lot of fun playing in the yard this week...the leaves are starting to fall and before the yard guys got here, we had a big pile to play with.  We have learned that Joanie either doesn't know how to play too much, or is too smart to play with us.  We can get pretty rowdy!  

She just sits on the patio with Emma and they talk about us while we are doing our thing.  They are like a couple of old ladies on the porch swing talking about the kids and grandkids.  I guess that's us!

The shop looks great!  You should come see it, especially if you haven't been out in awhile!  We got some Redwork Gatherings from Primitive Gatherings and it is selling really fast!  We also got some special cuts from Tilda's "Maple Farm"!  It's SOOOOO pretty!


Come and check them out!  See you soon!

Your pals, Eddie, Bailey, Emma, Joanie and Katey-no!
