QUILT INN RETREATS
We encourage you to finalize your plans with your quilting retreat group and reserve your Quilt Inn dates as soon as possible to guarantee you the 2012 week or weekend of your choice. Don't forget our discount of 10% for first time bookings and our 10% Summer Savings for May, June, July or August bookings.
OPEN STUDIO DAYS ~ EXPANDED SCHEDULE
The monthly Open Studio Days held on Mondays have been very successful and fill early. If there is interest, we will consider adding a second Open Studio Day each month on a Saturday. Bring your calendars next time so we can explore this idea further.
GROOVY GIRLS II ~ WRAP UP
The final session of Groovy Girls II will be held on Wednesday, January 18th. The show & tell each time continues to amaze and inspire us. Martha and Carol have a variety of interesting techniques to share at this “grand finale” and a Viewer's Choice prize will be awarded.
MAINE QUILT SHOP HOP 2012
Circle the month of April on your calendar and plan to enjoy shop hopping your way around the state of Maine. Hoffman of California is the premiere sponsor for Bali Road Rally: “It's Worth the Drive on 95”. With prize categories for those who visit 10, 15, 20 or ALL participating quilt shops as well as the popular Chauffeur Drawing and Children's contest for ages 5-17, this is great fun for mud season in Maine.
Do your New Year's resolutions include scheduling more time to quilt? The goal to learn a new technique? To cut up those fabric scraps and actually use them? Do you yearn to finish more quilts than you start? Are you planning to do more machine quilting? If so, you sound like the three of us!
We look forward to seeing you in 2012, either in person at the shop or on-line.
