I have not sent out a Newsletter in quite awhile, so I figured I would take a moment to do so. The shop has been so busy full of excitement and fun. Quilt Market was 2 weeks ago and it was amazing this year. How wonderful it was held in St Louis! I had 6 vendors in the shop that week and I love all the new stuff that is coming out! I went crazy and cant wait for the new lines (14 that I ordered) We will have new homespuns, flannels, wide backs, pattern, battings, precuts, kits, linens, bags, totes and sewing accessories. Also we are now dealers for Arrow and Kangaroo Sewing Cabinets (inserts for all machines available), Quilt EZ Perfect Stitch and Butler Robotic System for longarm quilting machines. Along with our Elna and Neechi Sewing Machines we now have the Eversewn Sparrow 25 available through one of our notion suppliers (Brewers) an inexpensive basic starter machine.
There will be no Quilt club Meeting in July. Club will resume every 1st Monday of the month at 10am at the Staunton VFW. August 7th. Remember to bring your Brown Bag Challenge so that we can exchange them. We have a lot to share in our August meeting too! If you miss a meeting just stop in and get your patterns. We now have a schedule for upcoming classes and a few changes. If you have taken a class and need continued help or just need help with something you are working on, please just give us a call and we set up a time to help you.
I have had a lot of response as to the day retreats. I am offering you the ability to book a day retreat for you and your friends. This is to allow you to have full access to our class room daily from 9am to 6pm, just call and book for the availability.

Please excuse our construction mess this week! We are in the middle of removing the office wall to make room for an additional new Gammil Machine..along with my custom quilting I will now be able to provide computerized all over design quilting to help ease the wait time. My Custom quilting is backed up till January 2018, but If you just want an all over the wait time will be about 2 weeks. We are in the process of becoming a Dealer for Quilt EZ Perfect Stitch Regulators and Butler Robotic Systems for longarm quilting machines!
