Deer Country Quilts Newsletter

February 2016

Woo Hoo!! The ground hog did not see his shadow so spring is supposed to come early! Unfortunately the ground hog does not live in the mountains of Montana.  If the snow is melted by the middle of April, we consider that an early spring! This is when coming to a quilt store everyday is great.  We get to play with bright beautiful fabrics so it is always spring around here no matter the forecast.  New shipments of fabrics should be arriving soon including a lot of new batiks. March and April will be big shipment months.  New fabric always puts sunshine in our hearts! Speaking of sunshine in my heart, March will be bringing me a new grand daughter! Erik and Tomoko will be expecting Claire Hana to arrive March 23rd right between retreats and Easter. My bright cheery purple and pink fabric is picked out for her quilt. It will be a good spring indeed!  Happy Quilting, Pam 

 Griz and Bobcat Fabric Update!
  Griz Burgundy    
Unfortunately, it is monsoon season in Indonesia, and that means its too rainy to dry our beautiful fabric on the beach! Our shipment has been delayed, but should be arriving the end of this month. If you have already pre-ordered the Griz batik we will cut your yardage first and call you so you know its ready to pick up. We also will be getting in the Bobcat batik.
