Deer Country Quilts Newsletter

 March/April 2024

I decided to write the newsletter mid-month this time because there is a lot going on around here.  This newsletter will count as my April newsletter, even though it is mid-March.  Most have heard that our lumber mill in Seeley Lake will be shutting down.  This devastating news deeply effects us here at Deer Country Quilts as my husband, LaRee's husband (aka my dad), and Jeanette's dad all work there.  While we are not sure what the future holds for our town, and for our spouses/fathers, we do acknowledge that God has always provided for us.  Even before we received the news about the mill, I had already been doing some deep evaluating of staffing and sales, and trying to figure out how to navigate this tough economy.  I have decided that we will continue to be closed on Mondays, and we will no longer be open on Sundays after April 14th.  I would also like to remind you that we will close early (4pm) on Friday, March 29th (Good Friday), and we will be closed on Sunday, March 31st (Easter).  Please keep our town in your prayers, and please keep shopping with us Tuesday through Saturday.


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.

Not meeting in April, but resuming Thursday, May 9th

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).


2nd Tuesday Class
Tuesday, April 9th

Teresa's class will be starting this pattern, "Seeing Stars", by Tricia Cribbs.  It will be done in jewel-tone batiks, not the fabrics shown on the pattern.

We are so excited to announce that we will be having Sue Paceley teaching at our store again later this year!!  She will be teaching Deb Tucker's block of the month pattern "Jubilation" (pictured above), as well as half of Sophomore year of Tucker University 

Deer Country Quilts is an authorized Janome dealer.  We have machines and accessories for sale, and provide scheduled service for your Janome sewing machine.
