NOVEMBER NEWSLETTER


                                               

Oh my! Where did October go?!

The leaves are almost all gone and it's turned frosty in the mornings. The days are getting shorter. Our internal clocks are in a state of confusion thanks to Daylight Saving. It's time to start quilting.

We have a lot that's been happening around the Shop.

On Halloween, we had a 25% Off Sale on almost everything in the Shop and a Halloween Costume Contest.

We would like to congratulate Ruth D. on winning a $25 gift certificate.  She made her elf costume and her daughter, Anne, costume.  Keith D. gathered different clothing to make his costume.  It was a very tough decision. Here's a photo of our Winner and companions.

                                          
                                                                                                  Aren't these amazing costumes?!

We just got in some beautiful Fall, Winter & Spring themed fabrics.
We have a beautiful Deer and orange blender in. We've added a few Fall fabrics that we already had in stock to inspire a possible table runner, throw or wall hanging. I hope you are feeling inspired!
                                               
                                                               Don't these colors just pop out at you?

Here is a beautiful country themed collection that reminded us of our area. It reminds us of a slower paced era.
There are more photos of this collection showing more combinations of using these prints together on our Facebook page. They just seem to go so well together.

                       
                                                The photos don't do them justice.

Here is what is coming up for November....

First, the class listings
         Saturday, November 7th 10a-2p $20    Thanksgiving Turkey Wall hanging. 
               This little wall hanging is a great way to use up your Fall fabric scraps.  It's a fun
                little turkey to brighten your Thanksgiving.
                                          

          Saturday, November 14th 10a-11a  Free Demo and Pattern.
             Stop in and get a ticket for this free class. You must have a ticket to get into the
             class. There will be a door prize drawing and if you came last month and have made
             a project using last month's pattern, you will get a prize for bringing in your Show
             and Tell.  I apologize, I don't have any teasers photos for you.  Grandma was off
             sick for a few days and hasn't started her samples.  I will get some teasers photos
             out as soon and Mom has something to photograph.

          Saturday, November 21st. 10a-2p. $20 A Christmas quilt
             Learn to make a beautiful flannel throw with Snowmen on it! The quilt isn't quite
             ready for photos.  We'll send them out as soon as the quilt's ready. It's really
             a cute little throw. I should be able to get a photo out to you in a few days.


We are going to experiment on all of you. (evil laugh)  Starting in November, we will be sending out a short email to make everyone aware of any weekly sales that are going on in the Shop.  It's our belief that many of you are unaware of our sales because you don't get the local newspapers. Therefore, to make sure everyone is kept informed, we will let you via email whenever we are having a sale.

We do, however, have a Show and Tell this month!
This quilt was made by Elizabeth G. (not our Liz) and it shows you how not to be afraid of big prints.  This quilt is absolutely beautiful. The photos really do not do it justice.
          
                 This quilt is amazing!                                                 Look at all those big prints she used!
                                               
 
                                                                              One more close up

We hope everyone had a great Halloween and were able to enjoy all the little vampires, Elsas, Anas, stormtroopers, and super heroes that came knocking on your door.

Have a wonderful week, enjoy the Indian Summer that promises to hang around for a few more days at least.

Yours in Quilting,
Maryanne, Mary Lou and Obi
