Country Girl Quilt Shop
Newsletter November 2015
Shop hours for the Fall and Winter will be Tuesday thru Saturday 9:30am to 4pm.
Fall is here and we are busy making up shop samples for the new lines of fabric that are now in stock at the shop. Sleigh Ride, The Harvest, Deer Run, and Winter Stillness which is a very nice flannel, these panels make up a nice and quick project, such as a throw size quilt for the couch, I use mine for shower curtains. Christmas will be here in seven weeks and these would make great gifts for your son or husband, for a college student, for a man cave, or just make one for yourself. Quilts make great Christmas gifts. Kits are available at the shop. See attached photos.
I am looking forward to seeing all of the quilters of the North Country. All Quilt Guild members will get a 10% discount with your membership cards. Hope to see you soon.
We now have the new line of Winter Song fabric by Holly Taylor, as well as the Heart Felt line from Kansas Trouble. Please stop by and check out these beautiful fabrics.
Nov.14 I will help you make some placemats for the Thanksgiving table. You will only need 1 jelly roll, some foam mats, and a walking foot for this 1 day class from 10am to 4pm. Buy your supplies in the shop and I will waive the class fee, or bring your own supplies and the class fee is $10.
Nov.21 Donna McCauley will have a Free Motion class from 1pm to 4pm. This is a great class for beginners in free motion quilting but will also be helpful to those that are already doing free motion. The space is limited to six ladies so call the shop 494-2299 to reserve your spot.
November 27 I will be celebrating my 4th year as a shop owner. So much has happened in a short time and I have met so many ladies, and yes a few great men, made lots of friends, and learned from each one of you in some way and for that I thank all of you. We will have some fun things happening at the shop on Nov.27 from 9:30am to 4pm, so stop by and see what we have up our sleeves and see what is new in the shop.
We would also like to offer the Free Motion Quilting Club that would meet on the third Saturday of each month from 1pm to 4:30pm. The FMC is for anyone that wants to learn how to quilt their own quilt with their sewing machine. Space is limited so call the shop 494-2299 to reserve your spot.
