What an amazing show of color we are blessed to behold!! This is when my creativity goes in overdrive – trying to mimick the color palatte that I so dearly love. Lots of new fabrics arriving at the shop – French Generals Panier de fleur; Denim Paisley by In the Beginning Fabrics; Etchings by 3 Sisters; American Banner by Minnick & Simpson – lots more to come
This month is National Breast Cancer Awareness month – so last week we did our Sit & Sew on “Summer in the Park” using Northcotts Pink Jellyrolls. Everyone had such a good time we decided we would use this Thursday to try it again – hope you can join us.
We are also challenging all of our quilting friends (and non-quilting friends) to help us with our 100 pillowcase challenge for ConKerr Cancer for children. We have 43 completed this week & I cut another 24 kits for those that doesn’t have any novelty fabric. We will be having another sew-in this Friday for anyone that can lend a hand – just bring your sewing machine, basic sewing supplies and come sew with us from 10:00am – ??? If you want to furnish your novelty fabrics you will need 27″ pillowcase body; 11″ cuff; and a 1 1/2″ strip of contrasting fabric for each case you make. Of course if you can’t make it to sew here at the shop but want to participate – we would love for you to drop your pillowcases off anytime this month – we will add them to the count and ConKerr representative will pick them up at the end of October.
Don’t forget if you signed up for Jody’s Twister class it is this Saturday from 1:00-3:00pm
