Deer Country Quilts Newsletter

  October 2020

It's pumpkin season!!  Yay!!  I love pumpkin everything - pumpkin bread, pumpkin pie, pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin spice creamer - oh boy!  I can feel my thighs grow just talking about it all.....also, I'm eagerly awaiting the change of colors, especially all of the gorgeous tamaracks we have in Seeley Lake!

We won't be hosting our usual fall retreats this month, but we will be participating in a Shop Hop - October 8th-18th - and we hope to see many of you during that time.  Visit all 6 participating shops and get your passport stamped for a chance to win the big prizes ($300 in gift certificates, or a quilter's tool package valued at $125).  We will also have our own door prize at our shop.  The participating shops are: Quilters Corner (Deer Lodge), Upper Thread & Embroidery (Anaconda), Sew Unique (Philipsburg), Goin' Quilting (Missoula), Confident Stitch (Missoula), and Deer Country Quilts (Seeley Lake).

We have a few kits that have just ONE left, and I put them on sale on our "Featured!" tab on our website Check it out.

Thank you for your continued support!
It has been an amazing four months!

2nd Monday Class
(Formerly 2nd Saturday Class)
Monday, October 12th, 10:15am-1:00pm
We're starting a new class, with a new day, and new teachers.  Join Teresa and Sarina for instruction on making "Six Halves Make a Whole Sampler" by The Quilt Branch, using Creative Grids' House Ruler.  We have 2 colorways to choose from - one in warm, fall colors, and the other in cool, bright colors.  The price is $12.75/month for 12 months for those attending class; we also have full kits for sale ($100 kit, $14.50 book, and $29.99 ruler) for those not attending class.  This class is already full (with the ladies who used to attend Pam's 2nd Saturday class), but we would be happy to host this class on an additional day if there's more interest.
