News from Quilter's JEM for the week of 7/25/19

1525 Central Ave NW / East Grand Forks MN 56721 / (218) 399-0159 /
Hello Friends!

A Minnesota Christmas comes to Quilter's JEM is only a week away!

August 1-15 we will (finally!) unveil all our new Christmas and winter fabrics - there is something for everyone, from elegant to folksy, classic to contemporary! New kits and samples, too! Visit us and register for prize drawings! Watch your email for more information!

I have so much beautiful new fabric to share with you this week! Here in northern Minnesota, the woods and lakes are never far from our thoughts and in summer they kind of take over. But I don't think that is the only reason Woodland Wonders from Studio E has captured my heart - it is also gorgeous! We have the panel and bolts below, and also more bolts from the line. I can't resist showing you more than one or two photos of this line!

We have an adorable new kit coming that uses this whimsical panel and coordinating bolts from Studio E's Fairyland!

For a limited time we have available an amazing assortment of dolls, pumpkins, and more from Country Stitchin N Stuff - here's a sample of what we have now (oh that sheep!):

These bolts of puppy-themed fabric would make the cutest 4-patch quilt for the puppy lover in your life, plus we have the flannel below for the perfect backing!

New wide back!

Two colorful butterfly fabrics - great for any bright project, but especially for fabric collage quilts! You'll find it near our Laura Heine fabrics!

Our JEM of the Week is Lewis & Irene's Cocktail Party - think of the fantastic table runners you can make for summer entertaining! This week $9.99/yd (usually $11.99)!

Starting Soon! Our Summer Moon Quilt-Along will be starting up in August - sign ups are open and we have the book and FQ bundles in lots of different styles - modern, traditional, vintage, neutral, you name it! Join the club for weekly emails with tips and examples! We'll also have quarterly meetings for show & tell and sharing progress, plans, and tips!

***Many classes that meet monthly are taking July off - check below!***

No dates set yet, but if you've ever wanted to make a Lone Star quilt, keep an eye out for our upcoming class!

Use the fabrics of your choice to create a beautiful quilt! Learn and practice piecing, applique, and paper piecing skills! Class will meet each third Thursday of the month, but will be taking July off.

Learn to Sew! This class will teach the basic skills needed to use your sewing machine and follow written directions to make a pattern or two. You'll need a working sewing machine.
