Just where have you been?

So it has been a while since I last posted (December!).  So sorry to keep you out of the loop.  Facebook gets a few posts and then there is mail chimp for the shop communications.  This year has been flying by in a whirl!  We have participated in several guild quilt shows, I have been teaching across Texas for guilds and shops and at retreats!  REGISTRATION for our Kids Kamps are happening now!

We just completed our first year as a brick and mortar quilt shop and we are very excited for the future.  Our next big event is our Customer Appreciation “Quilt Thump” on Saturday, June 17th right here in Luling, TX.  Our quilters have been collecting “seeds” and will be rewarded for supporting our first year with chances on raffle bags and auction items.  Please call 830-875-5432 to rsvp that you will be attending the quilt thump!  It won’t be the same without YOU!

We have Row by Row coming up starting June 17th.  We have a really fun row this year and are super excited to be participating in Row by Row Junior program as well.

Our Row for adults! We have a variety of kits available for this pattern, from rugged outdoors to Tula Pink. We hope you will have a little bit of fun with our row. (Pattern/Kit do not include border/binding – we have an optional charm kit available as well)

And as always we are adding new samples to the shop on a very regular basis – here is what we have to show this week.

Dimples for color and a fabulous background from Libs Elliott. You need to see this quilt in person to appreciate how happy it is! We supply the Dimples – you choose your background and accent border fabric!

We add to our tools and notions wall almost weekly, our list of classes is varied with a variety of teachers as well.

Need inspiration?  We will be starting a wearables group soon!  Are you interested?  Let us know!

And on the home front we had an exciting storm last night.  As I washed dishes I realized the water pressure was low – hubby went to check and came back in “You won’t believe what the problem is”  See for yourself!  Luckily I am married to Mr. Fixit and we were back in business in time to go watch the sunset over the horizon!

Stay safe and dry!  Stop by the shop and visit for awhile!

 

Gazette Issue #6

Oh my Goodness – September just flew by and we are 1/3 of the way through October and I am just now reaching out!  Hubby and I were very happy to put September to bed this year. He started the month with a tear in his retina on Saturday of Labor Day Weekend.  The next weekend found me at the ER (after vending at the Coastal Prairie Quilt Guild Show) with a 10mm kidney stone, surgically removed the next day!  A big thank you to my son and grand-kids for coming to the show to pack my booth!  I was miserable for the next 2.5 weeks until the stint came out – the next morning at 6:45 am I flew to Memphis, TN to teach at a retreat!  On Saturday of the retreat I realized I had energy and I was BACK!  I also realized that I had not feeling well for a few months, I had chalked it up to being busy opening a new shop and having a different routine!  I am SEW EXCITED to be back in the swing again and we have lots planned – so much that I am just starting with October – but stay tuned to our Facebook and/or Instagram pages or follow our blog to stay up to date!
