April - June 2015 Newsletter
The January, February, March 2015 newsletter has been converted to a pdf file that you can print yourself. We hope this is helpful to every one.
Join us for a Row-by-Row H20 Experience
How about this...A shop hop event with no fees, no passports and all summer to play? Simply visit any of the participating shops and receive a free pattern for a row in a quilt. Combine your rows in any way to create a unique quilt that represents the fun you had traveling throughout the summer. Travel with friends, discover new quilt shops and have fun collecting rows!
Create a quilt using at least 8 different rows and be the first to bring it into a participating shop to win a stack of 25 fat quarters (6 1/4 yards of fabric!) Use that shop's row in your quilt and win a bonus prize! The finished quilt must be completed, quilted, bound and have a label on the back. We'd like to hang the winner's quilt in our store until October 31, 2015.
Our row is on display. We're excited to be part of this experience and hope you will join in on the fun this summer.
Travel and collect rows: June 21 - September 8, 2015
(We will be open on Monday, June 22, 2015)
Bring in completed quilt for prize by October 31, 2015
Check out the INTERACTIVE GOOGLE MAP where all participating shops will be marked. You can view your route and see which shops along the way are participating. Then stop by to pick up your pattern and kit to make your row.

June 6 , Paper Piecing - Karen
Karen will show you some great tips to make paper piecing easier as well as giving you precise stitching for your blocks. Her samples are amazing and very precise! One of them has 41 pieces and it is striking! You'll want to see this one in person.
Then stick around to see how we used Electric Quilt to create the paper piecing patterns so you can create your own blocks when you need them.
