NEW monthly event for 2nd Monday of the month - 9am - 10am Show & Share for all quilters/crafters/sewers in the area. Optional opportunity to stay and sew/craft/work on whatever. If your group has special initiatives at various times of the year, here is an opportunity to share with the community and get additional participants.
November 12 -- Show & Share --Bring what you've been working on; free pattern of a new design for a Quilt of Valor will be shared --it makes two quilts at once; stay and sew if you'd like. I'm planning some refreshments too. This may be a holiday for some, so hope to see many of you!
Holiday Tree Skirt -- Week of November 11 -- possible dates are -Sunday; Tues morning; Wed, Thurs. or Friday - let me know what works best for you. RSVP by Nov. 9.
On request I've designed this and will teach it to all who are interested.
This would make a fun table topper in a variety of colors too. Stop by for the fabric requirements and options available in the shop. Check 'Seasonal' fabric category online for several options of the print fabric. Colors to coordinate also available. The grey in this image is not sewn in so that the topper is an octagon in shape when finished. Part of the class will be to show you how to bind these non traditional corners.
December - Peppermint Table Runner
Proposing Sunday Dec. 9 at 10am. RSVP by Dec. 7.
Get e-pattern here which includes several other holiday themed quilts.
A quick holiday themed runner but any coloration could work with this design. Scrappy from your stash or come in and pick just the right fabrics for your own holiday table or the perfect hostess gift. Length of design adjusted in 9" increments.
OTHER CLASS OPTIONS TO CONSIDER -- jelly roll rug; bag; patterns from Barbara Persing, Elizabeth Hartman, Violet Craft (english paper piecing--all by hand or foundation paper piecing), Sew Kind of Wonderful (new book with lots of seasonal wallhangings and curved ruler), Turning Twenty and Strip Therapy. Many options to choose in the shop from these last 6 designers. Make an appointment to come check them out and help me plan a schedule for classes. Check the 'patterns' category on the website for just some of the possibilities --come in for the rest!
If there are any particular techniques or projects that you'd like to have as a class, gather your friends who are interested and we'll schedule a class for this fall/winter/spring that works for you. Costs will be determined based on number of students and time needed for the project.
Aurifil Thread Box and spool of thread
Aurifil has extended a great deal and I'm offering it right here in Grand Coulee. $14.99 gets you a spool of white thread and a box to put it in--your own brand new box! Typically here in Grand Coulee, I offer the spools at $12.50/spool and if you buy a whole case (12 spools) at one time, you get the case for $125. This offer will let you buy them at one or more a month until you reach 10, then you'll get the last 2 (to make 12) free. You can do this as often as you'd like, but is available only to the first 30 customers. Stop in and get your numbered box and fill it as many times as you'd like! You must have the box in hand each time you purchase for it to count towards your total case purchase.
