We are doing a Saturday "Fresh Picked" Quilt of the Month spectacular event.  Sign up for only $20 initial fee, and each month you receive:
free "quick & easy" pattern
+  another 30% off coupon for fabric for that month's quilt  +
an additional coupon for 30% off edge to edge long arm quilting services!

The following month, if you bring your finished quilt top, 
you will receive another 
(You will have 1 week each month to pick up the pattern
 and use your coupon.)

To help you with your monthly quilt, an instructor will give a
demonstration/class on the 2nd Saturday each month starting at 10am.
You are welcome to stay and sew afterwards and into the night...

If you don't get your top done 1 month,  no worries! You can still pick up your freepattern & get a "fresh" start on the program!

Both programs start in February.

Tuesday is Embroidery Day!

We have 2 embroidery classes Tuesday: 10:30am - 3pm & 6-9pm!  Do you have a red-work, black-work, or embroidery pattern you’ve been dying to try, but just don’t know where to begin? It'd be a GREAT Valentine's Day gift!  Drop in any time, and let Sammie guide you through the stitches while you chat and laugh!  It's $10/session, and you don't have to worry about a reservation!  Come on in!

Here are some ideas of what you could do!

Valentine's Day bag from The Mother Huddle (there's even a tutorial on how to make the bag after you've embroidered it!)
Handmade Valentine Pouch With Chocolates and Love Notes

You could embroider something on a scarf (this is actually needle felting, but you could embroider it!) via Design Sponge

Or if you don't want to do Valentine's Day stuff, you could make Felt Sand Dollars from Happy Together!
Basket from the beach

Or a pacifier clip from Ruffles & Stuff!

The possibilities are ENDLESS!  What are you waiting for...come in now!
