Happy March! This month's calendar is full of special days: Daylight Savings on the 13th, St. Patrick's Day on the 17th, National Quilting Day on the 19th, and First Day of Spring on the 20th. There's so much to celebrate and look forward to! In our shop we have several things that convey cheer and hope of sunny days, like the panel in the picture above. This "Celebrate the Seasons" panel by Hoffman Fabrics is one of twelve that we carry. They are perfect for making monthly wall-hangings! Click the picture to see them all. Thank you all again for your continued support!
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. The winner will also receive a $25 gift certificate to Deer Country Quilts! 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.
