January 2018 Newsletter / Calendar

Burrrr, the weather outside is absolutely frightful and I'm already looking forward to Spring weather in 2018!!!!  I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and enjoyed time with their loved ones, an abundance of delicious food and a little rest and relaxation, We certainly did!

We will be OPEN on New Years Day!

We have exciting news.... we will be offering a new Kaffe Fassett Mystery Quilt program. Participating in Kaffe’s Mystery Quilt is a great way to explore the wonder of working with his large and small scale designs.  Quilters will relish the Mystery and enjoy Kaffe’s Colorful Universe. New sewers and newcomers to Kaffe’s world will surprise themselves with a kaffetastic complete quilt top. It’s easy sewing, so any sewer can savor working with Kaffe’s color and scale.


Each month, sew a different piece of the puzzle, culminating in the tenth month with the final piece and a map for finishing!

Give it a go!

"Sew What" is Happening in the
Shoppe in January .......

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 can not 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.
