Spring sure makes us want to get into our gardens, doesn’t it? The weather has finally turned, and everyone wants to be in the sun.   So many quilters are also gardeners.   Early blooming flowers bring us inspiration for the quilts that give us comfort   throughout the whole year.  The link must be color.  We were impressed by the color arrays and skill levels at two recent shows.  The Twin City Quilt Guild show and the Clarence Log Cabin Quilt Guild show were both very inspiring.  It makes my fingers itch to get at the machine!  Our congratulations go out to the committees of both shows for a job well done.  We are privileged to be among so many with so much talent.

This year, we attended Quilt Market in Pittsburgh, PA.  We spent three days among all the fabric companies, book and pattern publishers as well as small companies that continue to make innovative tools to help make quilting more enjoyable and/or faster.  There are lots and lots of new patterns and fun things to be stimulated by.  It was exhausting, exciting, and exhilarating all at the same time!    While we did try to remember the budget, we couldn’t help ordering some of these new ideas and products.   Things have already started arriving, so stop by soon.

Upcoming events include the WN Y Shop Hop.  As always we will have block patterns and gifts at each participating shop.  Get your passports stamped and be entered to win one of our many prizes.  Prizes, drawn from all the completed passports, include one of 9 gift baskets, 24 yards of fabric, and the grand prize of a new Baby Lock sewing machine.  We can’t wait to see all of you sometime between June 10th and 13th.  See complete information on page 4 of this newsletter.

You really have to stop by and see all that’s new here at the store.  New products and fabrics arrive daily.  We have samples of all our summer classes as well as samples of upcoming fall classes on display. Beginners are welcome at nearly all the classes.  Check the website for the complete list of days and times.   Please remember we have gone to our summer hours for now through Labor Day.  Hours are at the top of the page.
