Hello Quilting Friends!
November is off to a chilly start. Did you see a flake or two of snow in the air this week? Although it's good sewing weather, I'm not quite ready for winter yet. Don't forget to stock up on projects to get you through these cold months. We'd love to help you with some new projects. Social Media
Check out our social media pages on Facebook and Instagram. The winner of our sharing contest from 10 in 10 was Heidi Lien. Be sure to share our newest post for a chance to win this kit. Remember you must be present to win.
The featured employee of the week is our amazing long arm quilter, Amy Bail! She would love to meet you and help you finish your quilt project. Her favorite product to work with is wool batting.
10 in 10! and 12 @ 12
Our live show on Facebook takes place every Monday night at 8:00 PM central time. I'll be featuring 10 items in about 10 minutes. Be sure to tune in and share, share, share!
We are super excited to team up with 12 shops as part of the 12 @ 12 Lunchtime Lives. For the first 12 days of November, a shop will feature 12 bundles at 12:00 PM Central. Our shop will be on November 11th. Be sure to tune in or watch the replay, we'll have lots of fun bundles to show you.
Be sure to join me on Thursday mornings at 9:30 on Facebook for a demonstration on a tool, a new product, or a fun project. You can also watch the replay if you're not able to watch live. This week we focused on making 8 Half Square Triangles at once, and the project below is why I started making them this way!
Quilts on the Red
We will be vending at Quilts on the Red at the Alerus Center in Grand Forks on November 19 and 20. This show offers a beautiful variety of quilts and several other vendors. We will be doing a fun, flannel make and take in our Bernina area. A great way to try out a machine and you'll have a wonderful, warm winter scarf when you're done.
Show hours are: Friday, 11/19 9am to 8pm
Saturday, 11/20 9am to 5 pm
We can't wait to see you there!
