Happy Sunday, quilty friends! I hope you've had a good week and a relaxing weekend. I am currently enjoying the leaves falling in the back yard with my puppy, Dolly P. Harbin. (we are big Dolly Parton fans around here!) She is a 10 month old cavalier/cocker spaniel mix and is a HANDFUL! She does however like to relax on the porch sofa and listen to music so we're doing just that this morning together.

 

But, enough about me and Dolly. What's up in the shop? A few things:

 

You may have seen on social media video Lisa and I made to share information about the upcoming Grid Girl's Block Party class. We are so excited about this class but it occurred to us that maybe ya'll need some more details. So, here we go:

  • This is a block construction class designed to help maximize your use of rulers. Maybe you have a ruler or two that you're purchased but aren't sure what you're supposed to be doing with it. Or maybe you've wanted to improve upon your cutting skills.

  • There are eight rulers that the class will focus on over 12 months starting this month. Each month is a new block.

  • You can do all of the classes, just one class or even a few classes.

  • The blocks will form a sampler quilt! In the classroom, we have three different examples in batiks, a traditional floral purple and green and a repro. All of the stunning because the lines are so crisp (that's the beauty of ruler work!)

  • Each class is $25 and the pattern for the block each month is $4. The class is two hours and is the 3rd Wednesday of the month.

  • If you need a ruler for a class, on the day of the class you get 20% off the ruler!

  • Call in to the shop to sign up or talk with someone about the class! We are happy to answer any questions you may have.

 

Also, we have several new collections coming in this next week so to make room we've added to our sale area. This week - all sale fabric is 40% off and all pre-cuts are 20% off. Here's a picture of a pre-cut we are LOVING right now. Its glass beads from Wilmington; we loved it so much we brought in their EASY strip pattern. Check out our Instagram and Facebook to see it!

Lastly, we are preparing to introduce a new Block of the Month program for 2022 and we want your input. We are really curious how customers feel about the BOM - still fun? Do we want traditional or more modern? Something more challenging? Traditional sampler? Batiks? What are we thinking? So, please watch Facebook over the next week - to gain your insight, we are going to do a little polling. Won't that be fun? You get to be a part fo the planning!

 

One last time, in case you missed this:

 

We have upcoming a FREE demo the last Saturday of this month. On Saturday, October 30th from 10-12:00, we will have three 30 minute hands-on demonstrations of a really easy biased binding technique. All you need to bring is some fabric to learn with and you don't need much! You can bring a project you're working on or even just a fat quarter. Because our space is limited in the classroom, please call the shop to reserve your spot! You can choose from the following time slots:

 

10-10:15

10:45- 11:15

11:30-noon

 

See you then!
