Dear Quilting Friends,


After a long hot stretch in September the temperatures have finally dropped and signs of autumn are popping up all around us ~ the leaves are changing color, pumpkins and mums are decorating front porches, vivid blue skies, shorter days, spectacular sunsets and pumpkin EVERYTHING!  Pies, cakes, doughnuts, coffee, muffins…..the list goes on and on.  Reminds me of the scene in the movie “Forest Gump” where Bubba is listing all the ways that shrimp can be used!


And speaking of signs of autumn, one of the workshops we taught through the Pine Tree Quilters Guild last month was the “Signs of Autumn” table runner.  Leaves and geese of all colors were created using Studio 180’s Wing Clipper and Corner Beam tools.  Dan and I “team teach” and would love to teach you the joys of precision piecing using Studio 180 tools.  For more info on workshops and trunk shows, click here.

FALL QUILT CAMP ~ our 17th year!

We are counting the days until our Fall Quilt Camp 2017 with Instructors Michelle & Dan.  We are busily preparing ~ Dan’s finishing up a queen size of his Chasing Points pattern while I am preparing door prizes, tweaking the seating arrangements and quilting room layout, printing name tags and all the other little things that make for a successful weekend for our campers. 



We are taking registrations for our Spring Quilt Camp 2018 with Studio 180 Instructor Michelle Renee Hiatt at the beautiful Rangeley Inn & Tavern in Rangeley, Maine. We would love to have you join us ~ our Quilt Camp Package includes all instruction, lodging, meals and snacks.   Class size is limited so register soon!  By the way, if one of our Quilt Camps is on your “bucket list” this IS the last Spring Quilt Camp we have planned.  



No formal instruction, just a fun stitching day!
