Fat Quarter Tuesday was a lot of fun!  We sold thousands of fat quarters, and had lots of winners!  Among the winners were Cheryl Milka, Becky Moe, Debbie Lewis, Sue Skinner, Jan Farrell, and Linda Yates. We gave away 3 baskets full of goodies and 3 fat quarter bundles. Everyone was so excited to get their goodies! Please remember that we have lots of Fat Quarters left, so when in need of a bit of something to finish out that color palette, come check out our fabulous selection! Next year, Fat Quarter Tuesday is on February 9!


Have you met our new helper?  Freddie is a year old now, and very gentle and sweet. She can help you figure out what fabrics are appropriate for your next project!  She’s a bit nosey, so if you are squatting down picking out fabric, Freddie will definitely give you her opinion.  Usually, her opinion goes something like this; “Who cares what color fabric…don’t you want to pet me?”



We are starting to look at the Spring Class schedule.  We have some wonderful quilts to share with you, including a Lemoyne Star Stack and Whack and the 3D Tumbling Blocks class.  Our spring schedule starts in April, and watch for emails for the updated class list.


Quilting Assistance

Just when you think your project is well in hand, you suddenly hit an obstacle. This obstacle could be anything from corners not being perfect to wavy borders, a binding issue, or a frantic “I lost the directions!” moment. Instead of panicking, why not call Sew What? We have a Tuesday Help Class that is only $10.00.  Some people are coming in with projects they started many long years ago, and have no idea what they are supposed to do next.  With a little determination, before long, these people are proudly displaying a finished project!  Or if Tuesdays are not good for you, we will be happy to schedule an appointment at your convenience and help to solve the problem. Don’t hesitate to call for help if you are apprehensive about a pattern – a private class might be just what you need.
