Dear Quilting Friends,
Don’t forget ~ the shop is CLOSED for the month of March for our “winter break” ~ we will re-open on Saturday, April 1st. The month is going to fly by as I have lots of projects on my “to do” list ~ cleaning, re-arranging and organizing the shop, spring cleaning at Quilt Inn Rangeley, longarm quilting, taking care of some business for my mom and a long weekend out of town. Dan, of course, has his own “to do” list which includes the completion of the shop bathroom. We’ll see what actually gets done!
STATE OF MAINE QUILT SHOP HOP
April 1st is not only our re-open day but is also the first day of the State of Maine Quilt Shop Hop. Thirty five shops across Maine are participating and invite you to hop and shop between April 1st and April 30th. The 2017 hop features two fabric lines from Wyndham Fabrics ~ Hamilton and Kashmir. Check out the Challenge Quilts using these fabrics at each shop. We chose our own pattern “Memory Lane” as our shop hop quit.
We are looking forward to greeting new and returning hoppers!
Spring Quilt Camp 2017
Supply lists and pre-cutting instructions have been sent out for Spring Quilt Camp 2017. We are offering four great projects ~ Amusement, Finley’s Fence, Summer Solstice and Sea Glass. Spring Camp is sold out but patterns are available and may be purchased here.
Fall Quilt Camp 2017
We still have openings in our Fall Quilt Camp with Michelle & Dan. Again, four great projects to choose from ~ three of Michelle’s design and one of Dan’s. The weekend is 2/3 full at this point but if you are interested, don’t delay as we often get several bookings all at once.
Dan’s quilt “Third Times the Charm” will be on display at MQX Quilt Festival New England. The festival is held at The Center of NH/Radisson Hotel April 5 - 8. MQX is the largest machine quilting show in the USA and offers a wide variety of quilts on display, vendors, classes and events. LOVE this show!
Dan finished up his mini “Calms Seas” ~ you can see both versions here.
Spring and daylight savings are just around the corner ~ will be nice to be able to start our after hours walk routine again!
See you in April!
Carol & Dan
