Work on our parking lot will be complete today. 
 
Bob and I have been on the road for the last 8 days delivering Gammill and Pfaff longarms.  We made it through 5 states.  Our first stay was in Verdigre, Nebraska.  What a neat little town!  We stayed in "the Hotel" there.  It was a very old but very cool Hotel and is often used for quilt reteats.  I would recommend it highly.  Neat town and neat people!  Then it was onward and upward through North Dakota for a Gammill delivery, through Montana with a Pfaff delivery and back home again.  What a trip!  Good to be home but so fun to meet new people.
 
 
New products  --  New batiks from Timeless Treasures and a bunch more precuts from Moda arrived again this week.  
 
We are very excited that our new Juki longarm is here.    It is a beautiful machine and I can't wait to put a quilt on it!  I'll be setting up a class on it soon for those of you who have been thinking about purchasing a longarm.
 
 
Upcoming classes -- 
 
 
 
We are already taking signups for Judy Nissen's "Machine Quilt on Your Home Machine" class.  This class is scheduled for Sunday October 25.  I'm really excited to have Judy doing this class for us.  Come on in and see her quilting and get signed up before it fills up.  I know I'm going to take her class!  She has great quilting ideas and even though I have a longarm, sometimes its just nice to sit down and quilt too.  And I know I can also apply her ideas to longarming too.  I can't wait!

We have also joined the Fabshop on-line shop hop in October.  You can find out more about it on our homepage.
 
Happy Sewing!

Jean's Quilt Tip of the Week
Scraps
 
What to do with all your scraps and stash!
We just got a great book in.  "The Big Book of Scrappy Quilts"  77 patterns, Crib size to king size.
It is also full of tips.
I throw all my scraps in one basket, then when time allows I cut them up into 5" squares or different size strips.  1 1/2", 2" or 2 1/2" etc.  I keep the different sizes sorted.  You could even sort them by color.  When I find my next favorite pattern, I will probably sort them again into brights, batiks, floral and so on.
One of our customers keeps all her extra binding strips together.  That will someday make a nice strip quilt.
Also don't be afraid to sew up all the larger scraps to make an interesting back for your scrappy quilt.

Newsletter Aug 20, 2015


 
In this issue 
Aug 20, 2015
 
I must apologize for not getting our newsletter out last week.  The Row by Row shop hop has really kept us hoppin!  I'm anxious to hear what the theme for next year will be.
 
We are going to make a small change in our Mystery Quilt Reveal day.  We had originally scheduled it as an open house in effort to try to accomodate everyone but that was a mistake.  Everyone wants to see the quilts and share in the fun altogether so we will have our Mystery Quilt Reveal on Saturday, August 29 rrom 10:00 to 11:00.  Come on in with your quilt, have some refreshments and we'll take picture of your quilts to share with everyone.  Even if its not quilted, still bring it on in.  And we can quilt it for you too!  If you can't make it at that time come in when you can and we'll take pictures and post to facebook.
 
We have been working on our class schedule and we are doing something really exciting for our classes.  Many of our classes will be designated as Cash Back Classes.  A CBC class is one where you get your class project finished, either in class or at home, and bring it in to show us and we give you a $10 gift card just for getting you project finished!
 
Our Beginning Quilt class is starting September 15.  Please sign up early and bring a friend!  Other classes on the horizon include Binding, a Sew Together Bag, Longarm Rental class, and DIME all coming up in September.  
 
The Row by Row shop hop continues until September 8 so you still have time to travel and pick up a few more rows.  We stopped at various places along our trip as well and the most fun was visiting with other shop owners.  Quilters are such nice people!  Unfortunately, we are sold out of our fabric plates.
 
We have also joined the Fabshop on-line shop hop in September.  You can find out more about it on our homepage.
 
Happy Sewing!

Jean's Quilt Tip of the Week
Make a hanging sleeve for your quilt
 
A hanging sleeve is a tube of fabric sewn to the back of your quilt at the top. To hang a quilt with a sleeve, just slide a rod of some sort through the tube. This is the method that quilt shows use when hanging quilts, but you can do the same thing at home by placing both ends of the rod on decorative brackets mounted on the wall. A hanging sleeve will allow your quilt to hang freely which will save it from getting pulled out of shape when it is displayed.
Except in very small quilts, hanging sleeves are usually 5" or so deep. Here is how to make one.
Cut an 11" wide strip of washed muslin to the width of the quilt. If you would like to make your sleeve invisible, use the same fabric as the backing. If you have fabric left over from the quilt, consider using that to make the hanging sleeve.
Fold under the raw edges of both sides twice and stitch. That will enclose the raw ends in a seam and also makes the sleeve just slightly narrower than the quilt. If you have not yet bound your quilt, fold the sleeve in half the long way with wrong sides together. Pin the raw edges to the top edge of the quilt. As you sew the binding on your quilt, you will also attach one long side of the sleeve to the top of the quilt. When you fold over and stitch the binding, you will encase all the raw edges of the sleeve as well.If you have already bound the quilt, sew your sleeve together the long way with right sides together. Turn it inside out. Place the seamed edge of the sleeve just below the binding on the back of the quilt and whip stitch it to the backing. The raw seam will be inside the sleeve tube at the topSew the bottom part of the sleeve to only the backing with very long basting stitches. Don't flatten the sleeve completely when you sew it down - you want it to have a little bit of slack to accommodate the rod that will go through it.
