Deer Country Quilts Newsletter

 April 2023

According to the calendar, it is spring (and has been for a couple weeks).  However, western Montana missed that memo!  "April showers bring May flowers" but I'm sure that phrase wasn't coined with snow showers in mind... well, I guess this gives us more time to sew guilt-free (you can't do the usual spring cleaning of your lawn when there's still a couple feet of snow on it!).  Sew hang in there, friends!  Come in and get your color therapy, as new fabrics are arriving more often now.  Thank you for keeping our doors open!


P.S.  We will be closing at 4pm on Friday, April 7th (Good Friday).  We will also be closed the following Sundays: April 9th (Easter), and May 14th (Mother's Day).
We will return to being open on Mondays in May.

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.

Thursday, April 13th
Join us for a fun day of sewing and eating lunch with your friends!  Bring a any project you want to work on.  Lunch will be served around noon.  Please let us know by Wednesday (the day before) if you will be coming, so that we can be sure to have enough food.
The fee is $5 (preferably cash, as this goes to the maker of the food and not to DCQ).
