News from Quilter's JEM for the week of 10/16/19

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

We are just a week away from our local guild's quilt show, Quilting on the Red! We are excited to be a vendor at this show (don't worry - the shop will be open too!), and to be offering a special class on Sunday with one of the national presenters coming to the show

(see below for details!), but we also can't wait to see what YOU have been making! One of the real delights of being a local quilt and sewing machine shop is getting to see all the beautiful quilts you all have been making since the last show!

We have a new kit in the shop - perfect for a classic baby quilt, table topper, or wall hanging!

Plus, before you know it you will be needing an Advent calendar! Here's one that is cute and quick to make!

Upcoming classes:

Sunday, October 27th: Pam Dinndorf!
A full day class on a project from Pam's Parallel Lines book, lunch included!
We are so pleased to be able to offer a class on Sunday 10/27 with Quilting on the Red quilt show presenter Pamela Goecke Dinndorf.  All the projects in this book are stunning, and we can't wait to learn more about using stripes to create dynamic quilts! Be sure to register soon; spots are being claimed!

Suit Bag with Maxine McNeece! Saturday, November 2, 12-6pm - Yes, this bag is made from a suit! You have to come in and see all the samples!

Mod TV Pillow with Colleen! Saturday, November 16, 10am-1pm

Pincushion Party! We had so much fun in September! Sign up soon if you'd like to join us November 11 from 6-9pm. This class meets monthly and uses the book Pin Pals to make a variety of pincushions that are fun and practical. Bring your sewing machine and we provide all the materials you need to complete your pincushion for the month! There might even be surprises along the way! Think beaded pins...teacup pincushions...!  Sign up now to reserve your spot!  $20/month.
(November's project is positively adorable! Remember - all supplies are included - just bring your machine and your tools!)

Daphne bag with Pam! This handbag features an exterior accent, faux piping, zipper closure, an adjustable crossbody strap, two interior pockets, and optional rivets - plus, learn tips for sewing with cork fabric! We have complete kits available! Class meets 3 times and will be scheduled in November.

Ongoing classes (classes that happen recurrently and/or that can be joined at any time):

First Friday with Connie November 1 at 6:30pm, must pre-register!

Scrap Masters with Barb and Jan, usually the 4th Thursday of the month, 6:30-8:30pm ($5 per session) - due to the Quilting on the Red quilt show and upcoming holidays, we will be taking a break until January.

Happy sewing!
