Workshops and News

We will be visiting the Common Thread Quilters' Guild as Shop of the Month this Tuesday and have some fabulous new batiks and fabrics to share with guild members. On Saturday the shop will be at the Lyndhurst Turkey Fair as a vendor. If you have never been to Lyndhurst for the Turkey Fair make the trip. . . it is a fun day for young and old alike. Both of our 8-week beginner series are full and start this Wednesday. We have started a waiting list for a Tuesday evening beginner class starting October 4 . If there is enough interest we will run another beginner series. On Friday, September 14, there is still space in the Bow Tucks bag class. This class is the first in the bag series and is almost full so don't delay in signing up. If you haven't heard, we have a different bag class almost every week until Christmas. These bags and totes make wonderful gifts and great accessories for any wardrobe. We will be posting a picture of the bag class for each week so check back on Monday evenings. Rapid Fire Hunter's Star taught by Donna has been moved back a week.If the first date conflicted with your schedule we may be able to fit you in. Our Block of the Month class, Snow Days starts on September 24. There is still space in this workshop, we have deconstructed this beautiful quilt to make construction fit into this 6-month workshop. Another block of the month is the Pomegranate Sampler with four-patch chain. This Block of the Month is a pick-up class. Drop in for coffee on the first of every month, meet other participants, and pick up your kit which contains two blocks per kit. Part of the chain border isalso included with each kit so you can complete the quilt centre and be quilting the quilt in time for display at a quilt show next summer!
