We hope that you have enjoyed the holidays with family and friends and thank you for sharing your show and tell with us. It is always fun to see what you have done with our fabrics. With the holidays behind us, it is a great time to start a new project. Please check out the class list and see if one of the classes calls to you. If there is a project you have been eager to start and need some help, we are happy to do private lessons as well. Give us a call at the store and we will arrange a teacher and time for you. The License Plate challenge frames are now available. They are due back the first of February. Starting the 2nd of February (and through the rest of the month) you get to vote on your favorite. March 5th the winners will be announced. And yes, there will be prizes! We love the Babylock and Elna machines we have and we think you will too! If you were lucky enough to have received a machine for Christmas, please be sure to give us a call and set up a time for your machine lesson. Remember that any machine purchased from us always includes a free machine lesson! Just a reminder, your machines will last longer and run better if you have them serviced on a regular basis. Marty is a certified service technician for all Elna and Babylock machines. Start the new year off right, with a clean and happy sewing machine! We also hope to see you on our Facebook page. Coni has been posting the fabric of the day and other specials. Even if you can't make it into the store, you can always call us and request yardage of the featured fabric at its special price during that day! And as always, thank you for your continued patronage and support. We look forward to another year of quilting with you! Happy Stitching, Susan and Coni Be sure to join us on our facebook page to keep up to date on sales, specials, classes, and our fabric of the day!

We would like to encourage you to work on a non-traditional setting for your sampler quilt. Instead of nice tidy rows, scatter your various sized blocks and fill in the space in-between with smaller "filler" blocks. They can be 2", 4" or 6" blocks or whatever sizes you choose. They can be nine patches, flying geese, miniature blocks, foundation-pieced blocks, appliqués or anything else that captures your imagination! Every month if you bring in new filler blocks you receive an extra drawing ticket for each block towards that month's door prize. Our Hugs group is still doing community outreach quilts. If you bring a 12" block to donate you get an extra drawing ticket towards that month's door prize. Red, White and Blue is still a favorite or each month we will suggest a color group for the next block. Come and join us for this new adventure
