For those of you who haven't been to one of our day long retreats, you don't know what you are missing. Debbie makes lunch and dinner and does all the clean-up. Just bring a project or two and have fun doing what we all like doing best: SEWING. I always work on something I don't want to work on because it is so much easier when you're having fun with other quilters. These days fill up fast so call the shop to pay and reserve your spot. 419-893-5703

Cell Phone Clutch

You have to come in and check out this cute Cell Phone Clutch that I have perfected. It starts using the Quiltsmart fusible. We thought the bag was too flimsy so you need to come in and see the evolution. It only took me 5 tries to get it "just right" Included in the price are all the fusibles and a magnet clasp. The only other thing you will need is 1/3 yard of fabric.Call the shop to pay and reserve you spot. 419-893-5703

Teacher: Lisa Spalding
Some of you have seen the blocks that I have been working on by hand. There has been a little interest so I thought I'd invite you to our Hand Sewing night to learn how to hand piece. I have been surprised at how much I am enjoying all this hand piecing "stuff". I can sit at night in front of the TV and either trace pieces or sew. I will supply some fabrics for you to fussy cut or you can bring your own just to get one block made. We'll talk about fabric amounts for the quilt when you are here. Call or stop in the shop to reserve your spot and get a supply list.
Monday Madness BOM Group
Date: 1st Monday of every month, except on holiday months then it is the 2nd Monday January 7th is the first day
Time: 10:00 am - 1100 am
This year we are going to do blocks from Eleanor Burns new book Forty Fabulous Years. There are 14 different pieced blocks in the quilt I have chosen. You may choose another quilt from the book if you want to make it bigger or smaller. How this works: you buy the book and get a coupon. The quilt requires fat quarters so your coupon will be for a one time purchase of 15% off the fat quarters for the quilt (you choose the fabrics that you like). You may also use the coupon to get the fabrics for the setting blocks but you need to do it all at the same time as you will only be able to use the coupon once. The coupon will be good for the month of January. There is no charge to come on the Monday morning. We usually talk briefly about the blocks, then I show you new arrivals at the shop. We finish with show and tell, everyone's favorite part.
Dream Flight BOM
Date: 2nd Saturday or Sunday of every month
Time: 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Price: Must purchase pattern and kit $385.00
Most of you have seen the Jacqueline de Jonge quilt hanging in the shop and have heard us talking about it being our paper piecing block of the month this year. We are hoping to have the fabrics here in time to start in January but if they aren't here we can still meet and start cutting out the papers. This project will last through September. Jacqueline will be here in October and we are going to dedicate 3 days for the block of the month participants. The cost for Jacqueline's 3 day classes will be $300.00 and I'll send out more information on that later. You DO NOT need to take her classes to make this quilt.

Have you always wanted to learn how to English Paper Piece? Or do you know how and just haven't made the time to sit down and do a project. Join Rebecca and Tami on the 3rd Sunday of every month. You can join at any time. Call the shop to reserve your seat. 418-893-5703
Date: Thursdays Jan. 31, Feb 7, Feb 14, Feb, 28
Time: 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Teacher: Sue S.
Have you always wanted to learn how to quilt? We are excited to be offering another beginner class starting the end of January. Included in the price is the book with the pattern and fabric to make the top of the quilt. You will still need to purchase backing and batting. At the first class you will pick out the fabrics for your quilt and learn all about rotary cutting. There will be a week off between classes 3 and 4 so that you can finish off the quilt before you learn how to apply the binding. You will need a sewing machine in working order because there will be homework. If you can't bring your machine to the shop we have some for you to use but it is always better to do all the piecing on one machine if possible. We will supply mats, rulers and rotary cutters for you to use at the shop. If you decide to buy these supplies you will receive a 15% discount. Call the shop to reserve your seat. 418-893-5703
Collage Quilting comes to the Quilt Foundry
Sue and I really had a good time at our Laura Heine class this past summer. We learned so much about collage quilting. We are excited to be offering 2 classes for those of you interested in making a Laura Heine Collage Quilt. One opportunity will be in January and one in February. Both classes will consist of 3 sessions -- Wednesday night, Saturday and then the following Wednesday night. Most of you will have a completed quilt top on the second Wednesday night. There will be homework between all classes - so if you sign-up, make sure you will have time to complete your homework. Before the first class you will need to decide on and purchase your pattern from the Quilt Foundry. When you call to sign up for the class let us know which pattern you are interested so we can set it aside for you. We are teaching the collage technique (she has other techniques) so we would like you to choose from one of the patterns listed below. Once you have signed up and purchased your pattern, you will be given an expanded supply list that Sue and I have created to help you in purchasing/gathering the fabrics that you will need. The Quilt Foundry will have some collage fabric kits to get you started in your quest for just the right fabrics!
