Fall is in the air…

and we’ve got a lot in store for you!

It’s time to settle down to some serious quilting, sewing and crafting now that summer is over and the days and nights are growing cooler. Check out what we have planned for you in the coming months!

PILLOWCASE MARATHON – FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 18

100_2661

We’re joining in on the fun and the joy of giving and we want you to join us, too. Almost everyone has heard of the Million Pillowcase Challenge by now. APQ has been encouraging quilters and sewers to make pillowcases and donate them to local organizations that care for those in need. Sometimes they are given to foster children, families dislocated by fire, hospital or nursing home patients…unfortunately, the needs are just about endless. This year they are dedicating September 18th to a marathon sewing session all over the country and we want to help out. Come in and sew a pillowcase at any time of the day! Or sew one ahead of time and drop it off to be donated! We have put together kits for just $5 each for a complete pillowcase. We even have free directions for this simple project! Raid your stash, buy some new fabric, or pick up a kit! Our pillowcases will be given to a local organization, to be determined in the near future. Your help is needed!

NEW FABRICS!

As quilters, the one temptation we’re allowed to give in to is buying more fabric! We have so many new lines of beautiful prints, solids and blenders. Flannel? Of course! Fleece? It’s Vermont, so you know the answer! We even have five new rayon batiks for those super easy, quick and comfortable swingy jackets and skirts!

STORYTELLERS BOM – STARTS SEPTEMBER 17

100_1273This is one of the most beautiful BOM quilts we’ve seen and we think you’ll love it just as much as we do! Each month, along with your fabric, you’ll receive a brief biography of a famous woman author. It’s a chance to learn a little something about your favorite writers as you enjoy making a 102″ x 102″ quilt to honor their legacies. The price is only $26.95 per month for 12 months. Reserve your spot by paying one month’s deposit which is good towards your last month’s fee. If you want to sew with us in the store, join us on the third Thursday of every month beginning in September. Don’t wait too long! These kits are going fast and we only have a limited amount to offer! Here’s a picture of ours in progress…
