SHOP HOP FABRIC…IN DECEMBER???

IMG_0015

You read that correctly! Shop Hop Fabric is here and it’s gorgeous! Why not pick up your own passport and grab one for your best quilting buddy before they’re sold out? These make great stocking stuffers,  and any quilter would be thrilled to find one under her tree this year.  We’re certain that you’ll both love the free ruler that comes with your passport. Mark your calendar now for Shop Hop 2016! We’ll see you in March!

CLASSES, CLASSES and MORE CLASSES!

 Did you know that if you buy your fabric for a flannel rag quilt at Countryside Fabrics you are entitled to take a FREE class in how to construct your quilt? These are so much fun and so easy to make. (Bet you can’t make just one!) A Rag Quilt works up very quickly and makes a fantastic gift for every age.

Our list of ongoing classes gets longer all the time! Interested in PaperPiecing? Learn the ropes by making a simple Log Cabin Block.  Are you looking for an easy quilt with lots of visual impact? Try the Labyrinth pattern! The construction is really simple, even though it looks quite complex! How about branching out and making yourself a gorgeous jacket? We’ve got you covered there, too! Just give us a call at the store for all the details on your favorite classes. Remember, we also run Beginners Quilting Classes throughout the year.

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…
