March 2018


Happy March!
Are all of you as ready for Spring as we are???  It may be a while before we actually get to see the ground.  For those coming for spring retreats, expect snow! With retreats happening, March will fly by. I do get have a quick break during our 2nd retreat. I'm tagging along with my hubby while he has meetings in Scottsdale.  Here are a few things to remember for March. Turn your clocks ahead this Sunday (my car clock will finally be the right time again)! National Quilting Day is the same day as St Patrick's Day so you can celebrate by quilting with your Irish friends! In fact March is National Quilting Month so go ahead and quilt every day all day!  Easter also sneaks up us on the last weekend of March. So while we wait for the snow to melt, Happy Quilting!  Pam

Featured Kit:

Wayfinder Quilt by Tula Pink
64 x 76
We love all of Tula Pink's fabrics from Free Spirit.  This quilt is made from her Spirit Animal line that came out last fall.  It includes 23 prints and 2 solids (over 11 yards of fabric) and the binding is included.  What a stunning quilt! You can find it on our web store.

Speaking of Free Spirit Fabrics, you may have heard that they have been sold.  They have have been bought by the Jaftex Corp. Henry Glass, Blank Fabrics, and Studio E are all fabric lines under the Jaftex Corp umbrella.  All of Free Spirit's designers Tula Pink, Anna Marie Horner, and the Kaffe Fassett Collective, plus others,will continue on with them!  I know this makes us very happy.  The good news is that the new Kaffe we just ordered and is due to come in April will not be affected by the sale and should be shipped as planned! 

*March Calendar*

2nd Saturday BOM
Saturday 10th
We are continuing with our Midnight Clear quilt. We are nearly to the end so watch for a new BOM starting in April or May!

Sewing with Toni
Tuesday 13th and 27th, Saturday 17th
These are open sew days with Toni.   She is there to help you with any of her foundation patterns.  You can also use the time for any makeup class Toni teaches including the dragon fly and humming bird kits from Hoffman. She can also help with the laser precut Crystal kits from Hoffman. You can join at any time!

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.

 Machine Embroidery
Monday 19th - Wednesday 20th
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.  If machine embroidery is something you have been thinking about doing, come check out what all the fun is about!

Sewing with Sharon
Wednesday 7th and 14th
We are moving Sharon's class up by a week because of retreats.  She is working on this beautiful Disappearing 9-Patch.  This is great for beginners or if you need a quick quilt for a special event or if you just want to get out of your house and sew with friends!


The Gentle Art of Hand Stitching
Friday 30th

We have been missing getting together to work on our hand projects so we set aside a day to do just that!  If you have a project you are working on or want to learn wool applique or new embroidery stitches come and join us.  We are always happy to share what we are learning!

Celebrate National Quilting Month by trying something new!
