As promised in my live interview with Kim of Kimberbell at Quilt Market..... We are starting our Jingle all The Way quilt on Thursday August 31st. From 10am - 6pm. We are breaking it down and meeting ONE time a month for 3 months.
August - September - October
This quilt will have many unique techniques and we are extremely excited to get it started. Kits will be limited, and of course you can always bring in your own fabrics and create away!

  SEWCIALIZING - SHOW AND TELL!!!! I don't know about you, but I LOVE Show and Tell. It is my favorite part of quilt meetings.  We will host it one time each month and we will have Donuts or
Bagels, Orange Juice and Coffee available. Please bring something for show and tell and, if you do, you will receive 20% off one regular priced item purchased that day. 20% off sale cannot be combined with any other sales. Please feel free to bring a friend along, even if they do not sew! We want this to be a fun and joyful time so please bring any jokes or stories along also. You are welcome to come without a show and tell item, but won't be eligible for the 20% discount.
