You are invited to Celebrate Labor Day Weekend with us at Threads Galore Quilt Shop's Porch Sale on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, September 2nd, 3rd, and 4th, 10 AM until 5 PM. Featuring quilted shop samples for sale, books and patterns at clearance prices, and assorted threads at reduced prices, the porch will be filled with great values. The showroom will feature newly discounted fabric bolts and loads of new fat quarter bundles at 20% savings. It's the perfect opportunity to stock up for your fall and winter quilting or to take home one of our retired shop samples for instant enjoyment.
Last month our long-distance Quilt Inn gals were here, traveling 500 miles from western NY state to spend a week with us. This month a couple of long-distance shop customers selected a few goodies to take back home to Australia with them. Late summer and early fall the Rangeley Region is a popular destination for national and international visitors from near and far. It's such a pleasure for us to be part of your travel plans! QUILT VISION USA has honored Threads Galore with designation as a Five Star quilt shop!

GROOVY GIRLS CLUB ~ Our August meeting was fast-paced and fun-filled. E-Reader covers were showcased, with free pattern tips for making photo frames or shopping list/coupon organizers to keep in your tote or purse. Yummy dip recipes and a tasting sample kept our energy up. Tips on making a versatile travel ID/passport carrier which can also double as a mini cross-body bag with 2 zippered pockets and 2 slip pockets will get participants off to a great start when they make up that free pattern at home. Gift potential galore at this meeting!

QUILT CAMP 2011 ~ “With A Twist” ~ October 20th to 23rd, 2011
It's not too late to enjoy a fall quilt camp with us. We have a couple of openings and would love to have you join in the fun.
Times does fly! We have two new calendars in stock.
The two year pocket calendar, 2012 & 2013, is available with two cover designs. Great gift idea!
That Patchwork Place has just released their 2012 wall calendar featuring 12 quilts designed by well-known authors. From scrappy pieced to floral appliqué, all 12 quilt patterns are included in this great value. Kim Diehl's quilt for October is our favorite.
“Simple Stitches” by Pat Sloan for P&B Fabrics showcases three large floral prints with folk art flowers, butterflies, bumble bees and hearts on backgrounds of soft ivory, lush green, or rich chocolate brown. Coordinating prints feature circles on country blue, barn door red, or autumn gold; a small vine print on cream; and a tone on tone floral print in beautiful reds. Pat Sloan returns to her original folk roots with this beautiful collection.
“Moose” are on the way ~~ always sought after, our new bolts with moose will be the hot new addition to our wall of Rangeley “woodsy” print fabrics.
LABOR DAY WEEKEND TRADITIONS
Here at the shop and down the road at Martha's house, Labor Day Weekend is the time when we begin to take down the patriotic door and porch quilts and pull out the autumn leaves and pumpkin quilts we so love. Table runners throughout each of our homes are swapped out and we look forward to spending a day in our sewing rooms making a couple of new ones to welcome the fall season.
Many thanks to you all for your loyalty and support throughout this glorious summer season! We look forward to seeing you in the shop, or in our online store, as summer transitions to fall. The leaves towards the highest mountain peaks are showing some color already. As always, take time to enjoy the colors and aromas of nature's beauty.
