Make a Quilt - Make a Memory

Spring has “Sprung”, the early flowers are poking their heads out of the ground and the SUN is warm, bright and glorious! HURRAY! With the arrival of Spring it can only mean one thing… Spring Quilt Market. We are off to market and with all the exciting emails I’ve been getting from the vendors, it will again be fantastic! I am sure I will be on sensory overload. Stop in the shop the end of May to see what was trending at Market, and what we were able to bring back with us.

Fabric, fabric, fabric… UPS is busy delivering beautiful collections to keep us all inspired and “itchin’ to stitch”! Soooo many collections are scheduled to be arriving soon and included will be sensational fabrics for your Holiday sewing. Yes, it is that time of year when the Christmas collections begin arriving. Get started early to avoid that old dilemma called “Holiday Stress Sewing”.

Join the fun this summer starting with our annual Wisconsin Shop Hop which starts June 5th. This years Wisconsin fabric has arrived and we have been sewing our little hearts out on some seriously gorgeous samples for the hop. Stop in to see what we have been up to, along with the other participating shops across Wisconsin. Also, beginning June 21st we will be participating in the “Row by Row Experience” 2015. This is our first year with “Row by Row” and it sounds like serious fun, as you vacation across the country visiting quilt shops! Stop in at the participating shops to pick up a free row pattern, kits if available, and license plate fabric if available (we will have both). Use 8 rows in a quilt to be eligible to win 25 fat quarters. Check out www.rowbyrowexperience.com for all the details, and the participating shops.

In addition to all the new fabric collections, patterns and books, shop hops, and the Row by Row, we also have a selection of great classes for you, and a bus going to the quilt show in Madison. Take a few minutes, put your feet up and enjoy our newsletter!


Happy Quilting,
