May 2018 Newsletter / Calendar

Good Morning everyone! I hope that all of you had a fantastic April and are enjoying the resent arrival of the BEAUTIFUL weather. I certainly have been and can not wait to get outside and do some yard work and take in the glory of all the blooming flowers. April was an busy and exciting month for us here at the shoppe. We attended our first Quilt Show in Hannibal MO hosted by The Hannibal Piecemakers Quilt Guild. There were so many BEAUTIFUL quilts on display and the talent of many sewist was awe-inspiring!
We enjoyed visiting with everyone and look forward to our next show in Kirksville MO on June 1st and 2nd..... and we hope to see you there as well! We would like to Thank everyone who voted Viewers Choice in the men's category for Brian's quilt! He is honored that you voted for his quilt and I think he is secretly working on his next quilt in his mind..... I can not wait to see what he does next.

Hallye Bone is scheduled be at Sew What Shoppe on May 21st and 22nd doing Quilt Appraisals from 10:00am - 5:00pm both days. We are honored to have her again and look forward to seeing the many quilts that will present during her visit with us. She is an amazing lady and her knowledge is vast! She will sit down with you one-on-one and talk to you about your quilt.  Appointments are filling up fast so please call us at
to get your spot reserved.

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

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.
