| April 2018
Happy April! Spring is always the best time for something new. Actually, anytime is a good time for new things. So, I have a new dog! After vowing never to have pets again, here we are. He was a stray that needed a good home. He is the most mild mannered, well behaved dog that I have ever met. We call him Jeter and if you are in the neighborhood, you can meet him at the store. He loves everyone! Also speaking of new things, or just news, my daughter informed us she is going to have a baby! This is their first and they are very excited. They had an ultra sound and got to see the heart beat yesterday.It won't be here until November so we wait! Also speaking of firsts, I get to go on my first Crabapple Hill retreat! Next week four of us are going to head to the Tri-Cities to have a fun weekend of embroidery with Meg Hawkey at her retreat studio! I'll try to share pictures on our Face Book page if I remember! Embroidery has always been my first love. I started embroidering on pillowcases and towels when I was in 4th grade. My grandma would then crochet the edges. Embroidery, dogs and grand babies, all good distractions while we wait for the snow to melt! Happy Quilting, Pam
Such a handsome boy!
We will be closed Easter Sunday- have a blessed day!

Book Case Quilt with Toni
While in Arizona last year, Toni took a class to learn how to make these fun book case quilts. You can totally customize them to your reading preferences! It is no surprise that Toni's 1st book case has a Halloween theme. She is working on a Harry Potter themed one now. Much of the pattern she has printed on her foundations. Bring your imagination and create your own one of a kind book case.
Tuesday 10th-Thursday 12th
We decided we need to make this get together a regular event each month!
Several gals with embroidery machines wanted to get together for 3 days of sharing and embroidering. If you have a machine and would like to join in you are welcome to. They plan on leaving the machines set up for the 3 days. Come for all three days but if you can only come for one day that is ok too. If machine embroidery is something you have been thinking about doing, come check out what all the fun is about!

Let Sharon guide you in machine applique with Bringing Home the Tree
