August 2023

Happy August!  I had the honor of heading up my church's Vacation Bible School last week, so I skipped out on work...and now my newlsletter is a week late...sorry about that!  I hope you are all enjoying summer!  We have been struggling over here with a large forest fire (and the smoke that comes with it), as well as a massive road construction project...and then of course the increased costs of gas and I chose the above meme to remind myself that we will make it through if we "scrap together."  This too shall pass.  Take care and enjoy the rest of your summer!



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, August 10th
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 (please bring cash, as this goes to the maker of the food and not to DCQ).

Join Toni in making your own "Tumbleweeds" quilt!  This fun quilt uses the pattern "Tumbleweeds" by Sarah Furrer for Studio 180 Designs and the "Corner Pop II" tool by Deb Tucker of Studio 180 Designs.  You can make a 67"x67", 67"x103", or 85"x103" quilt.  Patterns and tools will be available for purchase at our store.
The fee for this class is $15 to Toni.


One of our customers, Holly (pictured above), introduced us to "Dress a Girl Around the World" - an organization which distributes dresses to girls in other countries.  We wanted to get involved, and we are inviting you to do the same.  Above are a few pictures from one of our get-togethers for sewing dresses.  Join us on Thursday, August 17th, making more dresses for this great cause!  Bring your sewing machine and prewashed yardage, or just your sewing machine, as we have plenty of dresses cut and just needing to be sewn!
