Deer Country Quilts Newsletter

 February 2022

Happy February! - a month filled with hearts, candy (maybe a heart filled with candy), and love!  Even if you don't have a "valentine", this is a great opportunity to make sure your friends and family members know how much you love them.  I think we have the best hobby for showing others love - the things we make for others have our time, talents, money, and sometimes blood, sweat, and tears poured into them.  It is also incredibly rewarding to see the joy people experience when receiving one of our heartfelt gifts.  However you choose to celebrate this month, I pray you are surrounded with love (and a sewing machine)!

Have a wonderful February!

Block Challenge

We have done challenge blocks with our retreat ladies for years, and now we want to do a challenge with all of you!  Stop in and buy a fat eighth bundle of fabric for $6.  Make a 12" finished block of your choosing.  Bring it back to our store by Friday, April 8th, and enter your name to win all of the blocks to make a quilt top.  We have two color options for you to choose from.

Please call our store to sign up for classes (406) 677-2730.  Classes start at 10:15am, or 12:15pm as stated in the class description.  You can find more information for each class on our website by clicking on the picture.
