Hello friends!!

I trust that everyone is enjoying such a wonderful summer! I did my best to not complain about any hot days (remembering my promise from this last winter) and have enjoyed spending some time out and about. I did manage to can up a few green beans and still hoping for a day or two to can some tomatoes for Dave’s “special spaghetti sauce”. I always look forward to the seasons changing – and autumn always means lots of new fabrics and classes here at the shop as well as planning for future shop events. Soooo—–

I would like to give everyone a little “inside info” about our WV Mountain Quilt Quest Shophop For 11 years now, we have held this event in June; however, due to the fact that schools are dismissing later in the year – most of them are saying mid-June – we have voted to change the dates for the 2015 WV Mountain Quilt Quest Shophop to JULY 22-25, 2015. We received a lot of feedback this year from our teachers, mothers and grandmothers that could not attend because school was not dismissed yet – so we held a meeting and discussed the possibilities of making our shop hop more accessible to not only our teachers but to all our customers and hope this change will give everyone a chance to participate and visit all the wonderful quilt shops in our state!!

The Mystery Harvest Shophop is also right around the corner – and will be focusing on an exclusive “Covered Bridge” fabric designed by Beth Dix. I saw the paper prints on the design and must say they are outstanding!! Mark your calendars for October 1-4, 2014 from 9:00am until 7:00pm and join us in the Tri-state’s Mystery Harvest Shophop!!

Open House will be Saturday, August 16th – 9:00am – 4:00pm – Our sale will be $1.00 per yard off fabric, fat quarters $2.00 each, jellyrolls and layer cakes $5.00 off, and patterns, books, and notions will be 20% off. Hope everyone can come and check out all the new fabrics in the shop!!

Cookie Ranson, Pat Habenschauss, Linda Osborne, Linda Boggess, Clara Poe, Jody Postalwait, Dee Begley and myself got together this summer to plan a few new projects for you this fall. Each of us has become more excited as the time gets closer to Open House and the beginning of our class sessions. We will be limiting these classes to eight students– unless otherwise noted – in an attempt to be better able to instruct on a more one-on-one level. If the classes fill – then we will take a waiting list and try to schedule another class at a later date.

Here’s what we came up with –

What is a “Simple Whatnots Club?” It’s a collection of miniature quilts featuring Kim Diehl’s latest collection Vintage Farmhouse. The quilts are traditional patchwork in an array of colors and a simple setting, sometimes with a dollop of applique thrown in to create that wonderful traditional feel. Each month will be a different project and the kits will include everything you need to complete your project. The great part of the club is that its “simple” enough to get completed without creating another UFO in our sewing rooms and hanging out with our quilting peeps at the same time!!

Cookie Ranson will be leading our new Simple Whatnots Club starting in September. We will meet on September 9th from 1:00 – 3:00pm and have our first club meeting which will consist of a lecture, picking up your pattern and kit and cutting instructions so you will be prepared for our first “simple whatnot class.” The first sewing class will be held on Tuesday, September 16 from 1:00-3:00pm. You can pick up your next month’s pattern, kit and cutting instructions at that meeting. We will meet on the second Tuesday of each month thereafter – October 14, November 11th at 1:00pm – 3:00pm.

Cost is $35.00 per month for club members – includes kit, pattern and instructor fee.

Playful Spirit – A spectacular way to showcase all those Kaffe Fassett fabrics that are new to the shop or choose scrappy, 30’s, Kansas Troubles – anything goes in this playful log cabin pattern. I will be teaching this class on Saturday, September 13th and October 11th from 10:00am – 3:00pm. I will teach a second class on Wednesday, September 17th and October 15th – 10:00am – 3:00pm.

Spinwheels – A great beginner’s paper pieced project – Jellyroll friendly – I will be teaching this class on Thursday, October 16th – 10:00am – 3:00pm – Pattern required. Class fee $10.00. I will also teach this class on Saturday, November 8th – 10:00am – 3:00pm

Class begins at 10:00am – 3:00pm – Class fee is $60.00 instructor fee and $8.00 for pattern – (to be given at end of the project – lol) Confident beginner to intermediate

Through the Winter Woods – Jody Postalwait will teach this beautiful winter panel quilt – uses jellyrolls, fat quarters or yardage. Jody’s sample is made with Holly Taylor’s fabric from Moda – sets the mood for those chilly nights that are fast approaching. This one will be finished before the nights get to chilly – but just in time to snuggle for the holidays. Class will be Saturday, October 18th – 10:00am – 3:00pm – Instructor fee $25.00 Book required

Mystery – could it be a Bonnie Hunter mystery class??

Again – you asked Dee Begley to lead another mystery class and we talked her into it – lol

This class will be geared toward confident beginner to intermediate students and will be on Saturday – October 25th and November 22nd – 10:00am – 3:00pm – If you have never taken a class from Dee – this one is for you – lots of “clues” but she will have you guessing the whole time – I’m confident you will love the outcome of this project!! Instructor fee: $40.00

Log Cabin Hexed – Linda Boggess will lead you through this fun quilt – great for fat quarters or stash busters – Class will be on Thursday, October 23rd – 10:00 am – 3:00pm – Instructor fee: $10.00.

Tumbler Made Simple – Linda Osborne will show Creative Grids ruler technique on jellyrolls or our “strip-it” fabrics – Super simple but super gorgeous – Looks like you’ve worked for months coordinating all those fabrics – but Linda will show you her secret!! Class will be on Thursday, November 6th – 10:00am – 3:00pm – Instructor fee: $10.00

Well that’s about it for classes this fall (unless someone else would like to share!!)

Happy quilting everyone!!

God Bless

Phyllis

Mystery – could it be a Bonnie Hunter mystery class??

Again – you asked Dee Begley to lead another mystery class and we talked her into it – lol
This class will be geared toward confident beginner to intermediate students and will be on Saturday – October 25th and November 22nd – 10:00am – 3:00pm – If you have never taken a class from Dee – this one is for you – lots of “clues” but she will have you guessing the whole time – I’m confident you will love the outcome of this project!! Instructor fee: $40.00

Log Cabin Hexed – Linda Boggess will lead you through this fun quilt – great for fat quarters or stash busters – Class will be on Thursday, October 23rd – 10:00 am – 3:00pm – Instructor fee: $10.00.

Is It Done Yet?? – Now that’s a question I ask myself everyday – lol – Jody Postalwait said this is another one of our layer cake friendly classes but works well with fat quarters or yardage. Sure does look like stained glass when done in batiks!! Beginner to intermediate levels – Class will be on Saturday, November 15th from 10:00am – 3:00pm – Instructor fee – $25.00 – Pattern required.

Front Porch Tablerunner – Cookie Ranson will be teaching this classy tablerunner – Mostly pieced but she has just a touch of raw edge applique. Class will be on Tuesday, Oct. 28th and November 4th – 1:00pm – 3:00pm – Instructor fee: $20.00 – Pattern required

Tumbler Made Simple – Linda Osborne will show Creative Grids ruler technique on jellyrolls or our “strip-it” fabrics – Super simple but super gorgeous – Looks like you’ve worked for months coordinating all those fabrics – but Linda will show you her secret!! Class will be on Thursday, November 6th – 10:00am – 3:00pm – Instructor fee: $10.00

Well that’s about it for classes this fall (unless someone else would like to share!!)
Happy quilting everyone!!
God Bless
Phyllis
