The Spring Class schedule is ready!! We waited until the worst of the winter weather is over and we are running this schedule through the summer, hoping to be able to satisfy the needs of teachers, who only have the summer in which to play! We have some wonderful quilts to share with you, including a Lemoyne Star Stack and Whack, 3D Tumbling Blocks class, and the Upsey Daisy Quilt, one of my personal favorites! I am already getting to work on the fall schedule for classes too. Make sure: if you would like to be taught something you let me know and maybe I can get it on the schedule to suit your needs.
I am going to MQX in New Hampshire! I am very excited. You may remember I upgraded my longarm to a Statler Stitcher last year. I am looking forward to learning some new tricks and hints that I can make use of on my longarm. I am taking 7 classes, and can not wait! 🙂
The Clarence Quilt Show, and the Twin Cities Quilt show are both this month too. See the information listed below. The Twin Cities is at a new location, I’ve heard they will have lots more room for quilts and are expecting a wonderful show. I am vending at the Clarence show, it has always been one of my favorites, being a Clarence High School graduate. I hope to see you there!!
The Row by Row Shop Hop has been expanded and improved. This year, the dates are from June 21st through September 8th. The extended dates are to accommodate graduation traveling as well as labor day traveling. All 50 states and 6 Canadian provinces are participating this year! The theme is water/H20. Our row has been designed and made, and I have to say, I like it a lot!
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.
